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.

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
