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'll take them over walleye any day!!!
    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
