  1. Sak - East End/Mallard

    Put in at Wolf Creek Sunday morning-ran around to north side of Mallard. Pitched jigs and plastics early then switched over to cranks...and the fun began! Pulled #9 Flickers in 16 to 24 fow...tried to stay between 1.8 and 2.2 mph. Ended up catching 6 walleye, 3 smallies, and 1 pike. Biggest walleye was 23.5 inches...back in the drink...couple small guys as well. Kept 3 between 17 and 19...water temps were 68 to 72 degrees. All in all not a bad day...have a great week folks!

  2. Audubon 4/22 & 4/24

    Fished Audubon yesterday afternoon. Launched at the 3 Mile ramp...dock not in yet, just beached the boat. Corp has not started moving any water into Audubon yet, so easy to beach next to dock. There is still a large ice sheet on the main lake...past car body, guessing it will be a few more days before the entire lake is ice free. I fished the bays to the NE of 3 Mile...they are completely ice free. Marked lot's of fish in 4-7 fow of water, did not mark a single fish deeper than 15 fow. Used minnows and plastics, had 2 or 3 light bites...no takers. Think right now the fish more interested in reproducing ...

  3. Deepwater 2/8

    Couple buddies and I fished Deepwater Saturday 2/8...hit the ice in the morning-fished all day. Ice was a good 20 to 25 inches throughout the bay...no issues driving trucks most places. There is a large pressure ridge at the mouth of the bay, we looked for a place to cross at the south end-did not feel it was safe to cross with the wheelers. Fishing was slow-targeted 24 to 30 fow...caught a few cats in the morning, one 20 inch keeper walleye at mid day. The afternoon/early evening bite was slow as well, we caught a few dinks and one additional keeper. Weather nice for early Feb...be safe out there ...

    Buddy and I fished Deepwater Bay area this morning. Put in at 0730-ran out toward the mouth of the bay...fished a couple spots along the north shore to counter the ever present NoDak wind.

Jigged with leeches and plastics and jigging raps and ripping raps. Buddy caught 2 nice fish on snap jig and plastics. Decided to switch things up...pulled spinners with crawlers...no fish. Finally decided to try cranks...pulled flicker minnows at .9 to 1.6 ...
