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 don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

      I heard today that he has a bad rotater cup and is scheduled for surgery. Cliff

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
