1. West lake napoleon 5/18/2020

    wasnt hot and heavy, but there are pike in there, best luck was with gold/copper colored spoons. Fish were all full of scuds and leeches, no fish in them at all.. I found that somewhat odd.

  3. West Lake by Napoleon

    Me and a friend took our kayaks down yesterday. Only got 1 small pike, was nice to be on the water and get some sun tho. Spoke with a few locals and didnt sound like anyone has been catching much lately...
  4. Put in at fox island yesterday...

    First time out this year, got 1 on a minnow/jig in about 6ft and 2 more on cranks in 7-8 fow. It was kinda slow and I didnt see others catching much either. Water is really high.

  5. Harmon Lake N of Mandan

  6. West Lake by Napoleon

    Was there for about 3 hours yesterday (noon till about 3pm), put in tipups off the riprap along the highway on the N side. 7-9 fow.
    Used smelt and minnows. Got one flag on a smelt but wasnt able to hook it. Saw 3-4 other groups in the area and didnt see any fish caught. They all left before we did so couldnt have been catching much. Id say, if you are after pike, go elsewhere...
  7. John's New

    Was up yesterday, ended up with one nice walleye and 6 keeper pike, caught several dinks also. Fished about 4 hours. Walleye was about 3.5lbs and was caught on a daredevil, not a common occurrence for me. Other eyes were caught on lindy/minnow and cranks. Pike all came on spoons.

  9. West Lake Napoleon

    Went out yesterday. Fished 3 hours with my GF and we kept 7 pike and let a few more go. Biggest around 10lbs but most were around the 3lb range. All fish caught under 6ft of water, as shallow as 3 ft. Smelt under tipups. Some had bellies full of scuds. Water is super clear and I didnt realize I forgot my spear till after I had a big hole cut, sucks!
