We spent the morning and early afternoon on Sarah...caught 2 bullheads on our walleye gear!.....everyone we talked to was having similar luck. Fished Yankton until 4:30 PM...caught a fat 6" perch, bullhead and snagged a carp...resident there said fish quit when lake gets green...guess what color it is? Same guy also told us Rock Lake would be a good bet...so we went to Shetek...where the "pleasure"(lake despoiler) boats outnumbered the fishing boats by about 100 to 1...was obvious why. Only good thing was Twins beat MotorCity Kitties 11 to 1.

Went to Rock last night with my 4 year old son, didn't get to fish a lot but it didn't sound too good from the other people I talked to. Caught a couple of catfish while jigging but the water was pretty green. Nobody missed a whole lot on Rock last night.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
