Fishing is awesome!!! Fished the Eagles tournament on Sat and had our limit by 9:30. Caught fish shallow (5ft) with a jig and minnow. Caught fish on the breaks 10-20ft with live bait rigs and minnows. Just about all of the 75 teams had limits. It took 18lbs to win and 15 to get in the money. That's how good fishing was. Much better than the weather I might add.

Did you fish big drift? How did you end up?

12 lbs. is a good bag! big drift is right, if you would've had a nice kicker you would've been right up there!

Matt,

I fished on Sat. but with 3 kids in the boat on Plantan then Irving, but I am all signed up for the blue moon in June. 4th year now. One of the best ways to learn how to catch them.

When are you planning on fishing in one of the tourney's? It would be interesting to watch and see where ya place.

All I can catch is dinks except for prefishing. But this year I think we have our equipment problems fixed. After all I can't keep letting Chris take all the checks every year.

I fished the Kraus last year, and will again this year, and have fished some smaller tourney's through the years. This is always my busiest weekend, so the Eagles is out. Plus neither myself or my partner drink, so it's tough to pay for a membership to a bar...

I too was on Irving on Sat. I had clients out. Man was it chilly!! Fishing was great though!!

Chris can keep getting the checks! Husbands and wives who can compete together for that long and still come to shore with smiles deserve a check... wink.gif

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
