Spring and water have returned to South Dakota

1 post in this topic

Just back from a recent trip to the farm and it is nice to see water in the sloughs and low areas like should be. I am seeing water in many places I have not seen water since spring of 2000. Lot of roosters out defending their spring mating territory, few fights, and of course numerous hens. I think the birds came through winter pretty good and we're staged for a good nesting season. I looked at several areas of the state and they show almost twice the amount of rainfall for month of March as is on average. Even the dry areas of Timberlake are getting good rain. This was not the case last year so we are in a different pattern at least. Always interesting to see what the year brings.

Here are some pics:

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
