SE ND Fishing Report

8 posts in this topic

I finally got out yesterday afternoon with my daughter, iffwalleyes and a friend & his son were with as well. The main goal of the trip was to get the kids on some fish, regardless of the size.

We ended up finding some nice sunfish, seemed that the bite was on from 4:30 - 6:15 or so, with waxworms being the bait of choice. We were fishing 24 feet of water and found most of the active fish in the the 15 - 20 feet of water.

Travel on the ice was really good... very little snow and plenty of ice.

Get a kid out fishing! It's worth it!

Good report!!

I have a few friends that have been catching some walleyes and pike around Lidgerwood lately. Some good size to the pike too!!

And travel was great.

Good luck

Your welcome!!

You ever hear of anyone fishing the Wild Rice river down in that area??? With all the fish they stock on Lake Teawakon(spelling) you would think it would be full of fish!!

Awesome Marine-Man!! Great Pic, and I'm sure it was a blast getting some action for the little ones. I know you two have been short on time, but have you and iff been hitting the res of pipestem at all recently? I've been itchin to get out there. I know lake travel was horrendous, but would think it's much better now.

I haven't been out to either lake, nor has iff as far as I know.

I have heard that travel is better, and would think that you'd be able to find fish without too many problems.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
