1. Bitter Lake, SD

    Getting sloppy as you can imagine. Season's pretty much wrapping up - but they were driving diesels on and permanents were all over the place. I was shocked.

    Fished it with a bunch of party animals this Fri-Sat. I relied on my snowmobile rather than drive around with the truck.

    Slow action in 20 FOW Friday. Got lucky the next day and found a bunch of active 14-17" walleyes in 12-14 FOW in front of some flooded trees. Forage minnow and waxies worked best - minnow heads too. They chased it up just like a perch. Tease them up 3' and wham. Great fun on light perch ...
  2. slough lake near Valley City

    Went fishing Saturday 10:00-5:00. Spent four hours trolling cranks, lindy rigging with crawlers/leeches, pitching cranks and paddle tails, and slip bobbering - without as much as a nibble.

    Just about to pull the pin and give up when I found a perch on an inside corner of some weeds. Stuck the Talon and worked the area patiently by pitching a green 1/8 ounce gumball jig tipped with bait.

    Eventually teased out three jumbos and six walleyes 18-25" along with several smaller eyes and perch.

    All the fish came on 8 lb nano, no fluorocarbon leader. Never ...
