Good pike lakes in the area?

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

I was curious if anyone would give me some direction of where to go to find some fast pike action. I know the South Dakota DNR doesn't really promote pike fishing, so I can't seem to find much for information out there.

Any tips would be appreciated!

There are several good pike lakes in the area. I usually stick in Marshall County, instead of Day County. The lakes in Marshall County get a lot less pressure. You can go to about any lake in Marshall county and catch a ton of pike. Simply cast Rapala husky jerk-baits into wind swept shorelines and you will have a blast. Here are some lakes to try. 1.) South Buffalo lots of pike, with some larger ones availabe 2.) Red Iron lots of pike in the three to five pound range 3.) Four Mile this lake also has great pike numbers

Hope This Helps,

    • yes, took it this week, Monday, just off a bike path in SW Rochester that runs along the Zumbro river.     I was surprised to see it as well.    The bluebells and wood anemones and trout lilies were in full bloom, which is a couple weeks earlier than usual.      
    • Is that a recent photo Del? I was in the woods yesterday and found nothing north of Elk River. I did find this though. Bear?
    • Do people who have had a stroke find the lies better? It is hard to believe, but this idea raises scientific curiosity since the journal Nature published a curious study in the year 2000. According to the authors, those who have gone through this trance and have suffered a decline in the linguistic ability known as aphasia detect the 73 percent of attempts to lie to them. And they base their ability to interpret more acutely the gestures that draw the faces of their interlocutors Cellulite The rest of the people pick up the hoaxes about half the time.
      Please Suggest me I am waiting for your answers
    • Looks like Dryads Saddle aka Pheasant's Back to me.
    • Try the narrow channel on Enchanted Isle.  The shallow water holds carp and sunnies this time of year, giving you plentiful small action and the occasional larger fish to reel in.
    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
