I am a newbie, and this is my first post. A few years ago we fished in upper Oahe out of Pollack, and loved it. Then the water level started down until the launch sites were high and dry and going faster than a fast troll could cost you a prop (I know!). We stopped a couple of years ago but I really miss it. I think that West Pollack Resort went under, at least for fishing, so we are interested in other areas down from there where the conditions might be a little better, where lodging is available (like house trailers were in Pollack, if possible) and good fishing is guaranteed! Ok, the last one is negotiable. Any contacts that we could make with resorts in Oahe or even Sharp would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Might try a 'search' for this place 'Bridge City Marina & Resort'. I have not been there but it looks nice. Mobridge area.

If you are interested in fishing a different area along the Missouri River basin, I would look into fishing Lake Francis Case in Chamberlain, SD. The fishing is great there and the water levels are not nearly as bad as Oahe may be. Anytime from April through mid July, the fishng is usually great for walleye fishing. The nicest resort in that area if Cedar Shore Resort. It is a motel, but very nice with boat marina also. There are also a few cabins for rent in that area that the "Oasis Inn" own. They are kind of spendy, but nice. There are also a lot of motels in that area that are very reasonalbe price wise. It is a great area for fishing and scenery. You should really look into it.

We have been fishing the Little Bend area the last few years in mid June. Been staying at the West Prairie Resort campground, trailers, and motel units. Terry Nelson is a good guy and will steer you in the right direction. We are going agin this year. www.westprairiersort.com

In mid June the eyes can be in 6 to 22fow. Mornings are better. Use a 1/2 crawler no blades on a botom bouncer.

Good luck The Worm Dunker

Thank you very much for your responses. I have looked into two of them already and I suspect that we will be back to the old Mo again. I have a place on the Mississippi up by Camp Ripley, a little over a hundred miles north of the Twin Cities, where the water is normally shallow and fast. Last Fall and ever since then the water is so low that unless you know the river, you will play a tune on the rocks. The smallmouth fishing is very good, but tough because of the current and rocks, and the walleye is pretty good, but not like its cousin in SD. Can you tell that I'm getting spring fever!

Thanks again.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
