Thinking about a trip up to the big lake in September. Does anyone have any recommendations for resorts? There will be about 9 to 10 of us and will want to cook most of our meals. Just looking for insight. Thanks.

Bob's resort is where we've stayed before. Nice place with cabins and a steak house. Located on the river about 15 miles west of Gettysburg.

If you are going to be in the Mobridge area Bridge City Marina has Cabins that are nice. They also have some units that are like motel rooms, but I don't know if they are equipped for cooking.

Hey 1900,

I have a cabin that is located 30 minutes from the river. Totally furnished and ready to go. The only thing is it sleeps 6. SB

What part of the lake are you on? Funny thing is, my group is going, but I am bowing out because my wife is having a baby about then, or something like that. I can't believe she isn't letting me go fishing. grin

They are going to go up to the Akaska area in Mid October.

Hey guys, my older brother and I are entered in a small Walleye tourney on Oahe on August 9th and 10th. It starts out of Pierre. Any suggestions on bait, lures,tactics?? Since I live in the twin cities and he lives in Souix Falls, he and I only get to fish together once or twice a year, especially with the present gas prices. So any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Check the Tony Dean HSOforum. He gives fairly up to date info on the SD Reservoirs. I think the bite has been pretty good all year, so far. This heat may drive them a little deeper.

I'm actually on Spring Lake which is a half hour from Akaska..

Cool! The group found some house near the lake that some lady rents out. It is supposed to be pretty nice and was only going to cost each guy around 30 bucks a night. How is the ice fishing in that area? Since I am designated to stay home in October, my wife should feel sorry for me and at least let me go ice fishing this winter.

Ice fishing is fantastic if there is good ice! Last year we had a great ice pack so mobility wasn't a problem.. We'll keep our fingers crossed for this winter..

I think your wife should feel sorry for you!!!

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
