I fish the middle section of Sak. We do pretty well for notherns most years. With the water leval being down, my best spot did not hold fish last year so I will have to continue scouting for a new one. Walleye fishing in my area is show. We have to get out in the main part of the lake but usually can't because of pressure ridges.

Thanks Rick for the Nodak forum. I am feed up with fishing buddies. They are supporting way to much of the guides and outfitters.

Hunted along the Lake on Sat. Could not believe it, but it was 90% froze. Don't think it will last. the temps are going to be in the 40s and 50s the next couple of days.

I wouldn't throw too many rocks at guides if I were you.

Many guides contribute a great deal to this site as do others "FREE of CHARGE" because they care for the sport.

Guide bashing has become kinda fashionable in ND, SD, & MN in recent days. Usually by folks who never ever fished or hunted with one, so I find that very telling.

We all need to work together as sportsman and sportswomen and put down them rocks and work for a better sporting future.

backwater eddy: i don't want to even get started on hunting guides, i'm so sick of arguing it on fishingbuddy i don't even reply to most of the "sportsmens issues" there anymore... fishing guides are great, but do you really need a guide to hunt ND? no way, they just lease up all the land so you need to use a guide to get on any land...

well back to fishing talk! i usually ice fish audubon and darling all winter and sakakwea in summer... i'm planning on going to new town a few times but won't be driving on sakakaweas ice! anyone know of a decent spot around there to walk onto? i can walk quite a ways with my trap... thanks for any info

Yup Rick, Fun is good, I like fun. I am easy to get along with, most of the time.

I do get a bit sick of certain folks grouping other folks into categories without all the facts. A guide is a guide is a guide is one of them situations that spur me for sure.

There may be some good reasons for concern when it comes to land leasing for hunting, I agree. There is a lot of conflict in those ranks these days. If you look at the acreage of public lands that are available in ND, SD, & MN you will see we have more then any other region in the continuous United States. I think there is room for all of us if we work together?

Bring on some safe ice, we need to get out of the house I think Eh!

Keep us posted on the bite out West. I used to fish the White Earth area years back, man did we ever catch a mess of nice walleye, Uf-Da.

My comment was not a personal attack. I am just concerned about the future of quality hunting in our state and you are right the excessive land leasing issue needs to be addressed. Nuf said.

I have enjoyed your posts in the past.

My report
Talked to a guy that tryed the north end of Audobon, 3" of ice and spots with open water. I think I will wait for some colder weather and better ice.

haybuster,

have most of the geese left the area? Or... are they all packed into any drop of open water? I'm thinking of hunting around Bismarck soon, but I want to wait until the big water freezes up.

We lost a boat load of birds from the lake this last weekend. Warm temps we have had the last couple of days should have melted must of the ice. River by Bismarck? haven't been down there for a while.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
