Oahe - Whitlock Area Fishing Reports

7 posts in this topic

I'll be in the Whitlock area June 7th thru 12th - looking for a fishing report.

My brother was out a couple weeks back. Said the further north he went, the better the fishing. Minnows on 6' snells, drifting in 8 to 18 feet of water.

the area has been great for last couple of weeks and would guess that it would continue for a few more days/or weeks. weather has been iffy the last week or two. many cold fronts and windy days. most are fishing right in the whitlock bay area but may change by the 7th. fishing from 8-15ft one should have no problem catching fish.

We found the fish trolling points in 11-20 foot of water. couldnt have asked for a better weekend.

I'll be in the Whitlock area June 5th thru 12th and am looking for a fishing report.

My brother, and his wife, were fishing in the Whitlock area on May 17 & 18th with not much success. He stated the high water level, cool water temp, smelt run and flooded brush made catching any walleyes impossible. They left after two days and only catching two catfish.

Anyone having any success?

With the warmer temps, the Whitlock area will get going in a couple of weeks.

I was up there this past weekend and we drove down to Pierre and fished Lake Sharpe 2 of the 3 days. Fished out of Whitlocks on Saturday and caught 2 walleyes all day.

It will get going soon. Water is too dirty and cold yet.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
