Lake Oahe Fishing Reports
Well we just finished up with the Cabela's NWT tournament out of Mobridge. I finished 4th after a frustrating week of pre fishing. Lets just say I burned a bunch of gas running up and down the river looking for a big fish bite and was unable to get anything dialed in. I tried every trick I know and and some that were even new to me, but they all resulted in the same thing. A bunch of walleyes in the 13 to 16 in range. So I did the only logical thing and came back home. I fished the entire tournament within 5 miles of Swan Creek and caught a ton of fish. I started both days off with my co-anglers catching a 23 plus inch walleye. I have to thank both Carl Odde and Tom Hubbard for their great effort and good humor. I had a blast. Most of our walleyes came off of Pro Tackle propeller rigs in silver and chartreuse. We fished from 9 to 11 fow. and mostly around main points of small bays. The last two days of guiding have even been better than the tournament for the average size and easy limits. There seems to be a bunch of fish in that 17 to 20 inch range showing up. I want to say thanks to Mark Cutler, Kerry Konald, Nick Cekella, Paul Steffan, Travor Diegel, Tommy Houck and my Dad for all the time and effort they put in trying to help me with the pre fishing for this event. We do have some openings from here on out for both guiding and rooms so call Shonda and get out here and enjoy what seems to be the best bite of the summer so far.
