Shetek or Lac Qui Parle?

5 posts in this topic

Buddy of mine and I were thinking about getting some fishing in over labor day, just wondering if there was any sort of walleye bite going on this time of year... We're down at school in Sioux Falls so we're thinking either Shetek or Lac Qui Parle would be our only options... Thanks!

I have never fished Lac Qui Parle in my life, but Shetek is real slow right now.

Spent 6 hours on LQP Saturday with little results. Caught a 12 inch walleye and 14 1/2 inch walleye, striper, and 15" crappie. Was a beautiful day to be on the lake!

Never fished LQP so I can't help you out much there. I've been to Shetek twice the last week and is slowly picking up but still hit and miss. There's only been 1-2 trailers at the Vahalla landing each day which is really slow. I've been fishing from shore. Caught 2 nice eaters on Sun. night around a 1 1/2. Caught and released a beauty (about 5 1/4) on Wed. evening. Also caught a few crappies and a stray perch here and there.

Thanks for the help, I bet a solid lake like Shetek is getting all set to heat up for the fall bite though, so hopefully some of you guys will start getting some of those nicer fish! Unfortunatly I don't think we're gonna get outta football to get any fishing in, but I do appreciate the help, I'll be up there sometime to get fishing!

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      Launched out of McQuade yesterday ,,,, Been fishing the big lake since feb 18th ,,, Had lots of company out in front of the Lester as word got out that the fish were biting ,,, Not a stellar day fishing but it still beats work

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
