Ice conditions have not improved much the last week due to the nice weather pattern we have had. Not much action on the big lake yet.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

There is still good activity in the mouth of 3-Mile Bay for walleyes and a few perch. Also good off of Totten Trail Boat Ramp out to the island and south to the deep water. The old church bay area has been good for perch and a few walleyes. Good depths are 20-25 feet of water. Use Genz Worm, Buckshot Rattlers, Fat Boys and Neon Lites tipped with minnows.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SAFE ICE.  Measure the thickness for yourself and use your best common sense in making the decision to drive on it.  No fish is worth your life.

There are some great catches coming off Audubon this week. The key is 19 to 25 feet of water. I know of several limits of walleyes in the 15 to 20 inch range. It is a sunset and sunrise bite. Here is a nice limit of fish taken last night. These fish were 16 to 19 inches. Good job Sean, you are inem.

I have been watching the bays on a daily basis and there is ice in the bays and along the east end embankment. Cold calm nights will help ice over the rest of the lake.

It is walkable but be very careful cause it varies in different areas. Use a bar to hit the ice, if the bar goes through on one swing back the hell up. I will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Not much of a report for the east end but if this is where you decide to fish, fish Douglas Bay, Seven Sisters or by the intake for Audubon.

However I have been fishing the last couple of days (Wed & Thu) and just crushing the walleyes. I would love to give you the details online but there are some things you just have to stop at the store for. So what I am saying is do your business here and I will give you some info on where to catch limits of eater fish and hawgs, we are releasing 2 to 5 fish a day between 25 and 29 inches. I will post the pics after the weekend. We have released 6 walleyes 25 to 29 inches in the last two days, and have kept 20 fish for the freezer in the 17 to 21 inch range. I will be out there Fri, Sat and Sunday, see you there. Stop in and see Jeff or Nicole for details on where to find me.

I was out last Wednesday in Douglas Bay. It was windy and cold, only fished till noon and wussed out and went home to a hot bowl of soup and my lay z boy. I fished up in the bay, saw enough fish on the screen but they were all deep and I could not get them to go. 2 little 13 inchers is all I caught.

Not much of a report but not to many people fishing either.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

The walleye bite is getting better on Audubon. Boat anglers are doing o.k. and so are shore anglers. The fish are starting to move shallower. Lindy rigs and jigs tipped with minnows.

I was out last Wednesday in Douglas Bay. These fish in this picture are 13 to 21 inches and were caught mostly on minnows. We cranked 3 of them and caught the other 7 on minnows. The fish are all over out there, you can catch them in 10 to 30 feet of water.

This was a special outing for Nicole and Ralph.

On Friday Nicole and I went west to Van Hook. The day was warm but very windy. We caught 5 of these fish on lindy rigs and jigs tipped with minnows. The wind got so bad I could not control the boat anymore and we decided to crank out of the wind. I pulled reefrunners in 25 to 30 feet for the other 5 fish. The smaller fish are 18 inches and the 2 bigger ones are 24 inches. What a great day. A limit of walleye, a few drinks and great dinner at Clayton's Scenic 23 Supper Club, it just don't get any better than that. Thanks to Rick Folden for the help.

There are still lots of fish from Seven Sisters east to the Highway 83 embankment. 5 to 20 feet of water. Use lindy rigs or jigs tipped with minnows.

The fall bite should take off on Audubon any day now. I am hearing reports of some limits being caught from the East End Cabin site to the 83 embankment.

With the Fall Walleye Classic behind us we can get back to some sense of normal with the fishing reports. Every thing is pretty hush-hush during tournaments.

I had no trouble catching fish in the 11 days I fished for the tourney. Most my fish came on main lake structure on the east end from 7 sisters east to Highway 83. I used jigs and lindy rigs tipped with minnows to catch most my fish. I fished in 10 to 30 feet of water. Most of the fish I caught were good eater fish, I'm talking 14 to 18 inches. You can crank them also. There are alot of fish caught around the 83 pump station in the morning if the water is flowing.

Douglas Bay, Wolf Creek and Stienke Bay is good also, same tactics.

I have fished every day since last Wednesday. I have caught fish every day. There are lots of eater size walleye on the east end of the big lake. You can crank them or live bait them. Fish sunken islands in 10 to 30 feet of water. If I could stay in one place I would have no problem catching a limit of 15 to 18 inch walleyes.

Come to the Garrison City Park on Friday and Saturday at 3 to 5 p.m. to watch some of the areas best walleye fisherman duke it out for $25,000. The weigh in is exciting and you should see some nice fish brought to the scale. There will be food and drinks for sale in the park. Bring the family and enjoy this great event.

It's tourney week here around Garrison and lips are tight. All tourney fisherman are liars - except you & me and I'm not so sure about me. I have been catching fish on cranks. Lots of 13 to 17 inch fish in 25 to 40 feet of water.  Concentrate on areas where you can mark smelt. If there is bait there is walleyes.

Good luck to all tournament anglers on winning the coveteted $25,000.

Same as last week, Audubon is good right now using spinners and crawlers on the east end of the lake by the cabin site. Some days the fish are in 12 to 15 feet and some days they are in 18 to 30.

It's been a windy one here boy. I went out Monday it was pretty nice, was going to go Tuesday and didn't, had to take care of business. Yesterday the wind blew to 50mph. But here is my catch for the week.

Skyla was pretty pumped to catch a couple of these. She is 3 years old and is already going to be a great walleye angler. I started trolling in the morning on the east end for about an hour and a half. I could see fish stacked near the mouth of Centennial but could not get them to hit a crank so I put the crank rods away and baited. I used bottom bouncers with 5 foot snells and tipped them with crawlers. Fished in 23 to 30 feet of water. These fish ranged from 17 to 19 inches. You have to move very slow and stay above the fish.

Still lots of walleyes on the east end. You can catch them on bait if there is some wind. Concentrate your efforts in the mouth of Centennial and the 7 Sisters and all the sunken humps east of the Sisters. Fish in 12 to 25 feet and on calmer days all the way down to 40. Lindy rigs tipped with crawlers and minnows. Otherwise troll Reefrunners in 20 to 35 feet of water. Deep Reefrunners and the Ripshad 400's are working well and I have plenty of both.

I would like to encourage anyone thinking about getting into the Fall Classic to do so now. They will only take applications till the 31st of August. If you need any questions answered or need an application let me know. Sounds like we are up to about 80 teams and climbing. Someone is guaranteed $25,000.00. All you need to do to get in is send in your application with the deposit of $200.00. You can pay the balance on the night you register.

Same as last week. There are alot of walleyes on the east end of Sakakawea. You can catch them in a variety of ways. If the wind is blowing use nightcrawlers, minnows or leeches if you can still find them in 15 to 25 feet of water. Put them on a lindy rig or a snell on a bottom bouncer and fish main lake structure.

The fish in the picture below were caught on Thursday using ReefRunners in 25 to 30 feet of water. The fish I caught ranged from 16 inches to 22.

Lots of walleye being caught on the east end, just not that many anglers. A variety of presentations is working. You can fish bait on main lake points or sunken islands in 20 to 30 feet. Use spinners or lindy rigs tipped with minnows, leeches or nightcrawlers. Cranking is working pretty good in 20 to 35 feet of water also. The fish in this picture were caught on ReefRunners. Color did not seem to matter. Just look for a concentration of fish and pull through them.

Not much better than last week. The fish that were caught over the weekend were pretty nice but the numbers are down. Fish are transitioning deeper on main lake structure. Look on this structure for fish to be 17 to 35 feet deep. Fish bait vertical over the top of them. A leech on a long lindy is deadly this time of the year, minnows and crawlers will work well also, or troll cranks like reefrunners. In the wind fish the windy sides of the structure and fish shallower.

Audubon is not getting a whole lot of pressure right now but there are some real nice fish being caught around the east end cabins in 10 to 20 feet of water using spinners and bottom bouncers. Work the weedlines. Lots of fish being caught off the Totten Trail boat ramp to the south on the sunken islands in 10 to 30 feet of water but alot of small ones showing up. Bait of choice is leeches and crawlers and some minnows still working.

Centennial/Stienke bay is producing walleyes. So is Douglas Bay. There are lots fish in the bays. On calm days fish in 3 to 5 feet of water with jigs, lindy rigs or spinners tipped with leeches or crawlers. You may have to pick up the speed on some days. On windy days get out to the mouth of the bays and use bottom bouncers with spinners (hammerd brass, chartruese) and plain snells tipped with leeches and crawlers. Leeches are very hot and I have a great supply of them.

There are fish in the bays. Fish in 3 to 5 feet of water with jigs, lindy rigs or spinners tipped with leeches or crawlers.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Shore fishing is fair still because the fish are shallow. Use floating jigs and minnows. Some times you have to stay till dark for the bite.

For boat anglers, walleyes are being caught in 12-20 feet of water along the weeds.

South and east of Totten Trail and the east cabin site areas are best. Use spinners tipped with minnows, crawlers or leeches. Many limits being caught, some small fish coming in but some real nice ones also.

Walleye catching has been a little sluggish on the east end. Don't quite know whats happening. Still some limits being caught but most anglers are boating 2-3 fish a day.

Leeches, crawlers and still some minnows are working on 4-6 foot lindy rigs on a bottom bouncer or jigs.

Spinners are starting to work also. If jigs and lindys are not working tie on some spinners and pick up the speed a little.

It's nice to see the lake on the rise. The lake has come up 7 feet in the last 30 days according to my records and from what I understand the mountain snow pack is just starting to come.

As far as fishing goes, limits of walleyes are being caught from Douglas Bay to the Highway 83 embankment. Still alot of fish shallow but due to the weather some fish are sliding out to 16-18 feet.

Leeches, crawlers and still some minnows are working on 4-6 foot lindy rigs on a bottom bouncer or jigs.

Not much change from last week. Last Wednesday was slow but Thursday and Friday was good.

Centennial ramp is now usable, just be careful motoring out of the bay.

The east end of Sak was a little slow over the weekend. There were alot of fish caught on Thursday and Friday but Saturday and Sunday were off somewhat. Most anglers struggled for 1-3 fish but some limits were caught. You will do best not to fish in big groups of boats.

Good areas are Garrison Bay and east to Hwy 83 on the north shore, Seven Sisters and the north side of Mallard Island, Wolf Creek is good also.

All fish are shallow. Position your boat in 5-12 feet of water. Lindy rig behind your boat and cast jigs tipped with minnows to the shallows. All the baits are working. Crawlers, leeches and minnows are working at different times of the days.

Spinners are starting to work also. If jigs and lindys are not working tie on some spinners and pick up the speed a little.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Walleyes are being caught in 12 feet of water along the weeds.

South and east of Totten Trail and the east cabin site areas are best. Use spinners tipped with minnows, crawlers or leeches. Many limits being caught, some small fish coming in but some real nice ones also.

I am sad to report the fishing community has lost a great big fish.

Les Williams, "Cpt. Wrongway"  passed away on Sunday June 5, 2005. Click here to see his picture and read more on Les.

The east end of Sak is producing limits of walleyes from 14 inches to 28. The fish are shallow along the weedlines inside and outside. Use jigs and lindy rigs tipped with any of the baits, minnows/crawlers or leeches. You can use a lindy weight or a bottom bouncer with a 4 to 6 foot snell.

The bite is on, drop whatever the heck it is you are doing and go fishing. The east end is loaded with post-spawn walleye and are they hungry.

From the east end of Detrobriand Island, east to highway 83 in 2 to 10 feet of water. Pitch jigs to the shallows or lindy rig. Tip with minnows, crawlers or leeches.

Take notice of what a little moisture between here and Billings will due for the lake level. We have increased the level 2 feet in 11 days.

As far as fishing goes the weather has not been an ally on allowing anglers to get out. Some anglers are finding some fish on the east end. Some are in 2 to 5 feet and some have been caught out to 20 feet. The bite is just getting started and should be in full swing by this time next week. Have a good, safe Memorial Holiday weekend.

What a beautiful morning. We need more days like Thursday and Today. Warm temps will get these fish going. Some are being caught by a few anglers.

If you fish the east end concentrate on sandy and gravel shorelines, cast jigs up shallow and drag them deeper, as slow as possible. Fish the old highway 83 area. The road and the ditches will hold some fish.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

The warm temps will help Audubon also. Work the shorelines on the east end around the cabins in 10 to 25 feet of water. Use jigs and lindy rigs tipped with minnows, leeches or nightcrawlers. If the water warms up try trolling some spinners.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Shore fishing is pretty good right now. Shore anglers are catching more than boat anglers. The reason for this is the boats are moving to fast. Boat anglers need to anchor and pitch jigs tipped with minnows this time of the year. The bite should pick up any day now, the walleyes have been spawned for a couple weeks.

Temps have been so cold there has been no traffic. I'm sure with the cold front along with the spawn walleye fishing would be tough.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Audubon has slowed some. The cold front and the spawn getting over with has slowed the bite.

Catching should pick up if the temps would go up a little next week.

Shore fishing this time of the year can be very good for walleyes also. Mostly a sunset bite. Use floating jigs tipped with minnows.

I looked around at boat ramps last night. Government Bay Boat Ramp on the north side of Riverdale is now usable. Lake Sakakawea State Park at Pick City boat ramp is usable also. This is very good news to those of you that want to fish prespawn walleyes on the east end of the big lake.

Fish the old highway 83 area. There were alot of walleye stacked on the east end islands at last ice. Pitch jigs tipped with minnows into shallow water and drag them out to 20 to 30 feet of water.

Big post spawn pike should start to bite now also. Look in the bays for them.

River fishing for walleyes below the dam still remains to be very good. Look from the honey hole to Washburn. Lots of nice 15 to 20 inch fish. Jigs and minnows. Try to find slack water off of the current.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Lots of little males showing up around the east end cabin site area. Work points and drop offs with jigs and minnows as slow as you can. Pitching them shallow could produce also.

The big lake is ice free as of last Sunday. To bad we don't have access available for other than small boats.

If you are one of the fortunate ones to have a boat you can get on the water, the walleyes were and still should be stacked on the east end islands from the Seven Sisters to old highway 83. You can also still chase trophy pike in the bays.

There is getting to be plenty open shore on the north side of the lake for pike fishing from shore. Action will still be fair to excellent for prespawn jumbo pike. Click here to see the latest one caught and weighed in.

Find a back bay, tip your lines with smelt and throw them out, letting them lay on the bottom works best but try one under a bobber. If you get bored with that cast spoons along the shoreline.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Some shores have opened to allow small boats to get on the water but watch the ice flow. The ice is real bad, I would suggest not going on.

The north lake is pretty much wide open.

Shoreline conditions on the big lake on the north shore bays is deterioating fast. There still may be some places to get on without a plank or ladder but very few. The only places I found where you could walk on is Garrison Bay on the east side and Wolf Creek. Another day or two of this windy weather and there will be places to shorefish for these big pike. Here is one that was caught through the ice. Click on the picture to read the rest of the story. Nice fish Brandon.

I will try to stay on top of the ice conditions for you.

Still good on the east end sunken humps for walleyes. Ice is still good. Fish 8 to 15 feet for walleyes 14 to 18 inches and some bigger.

The bite is mostly a late evening bite. From 6 to 10 p.m. Jigging deeper during the day will get some strikes also.

 Any jig will work but put 2-3 minnows on. Trebles are working the best.

Find and island that tops out at 5-8 feet and set up your lines in 5-16 feet of water.  The bite for us was from 4:30-7:00 at night and 6:30 to 8:30 in the morning.

The pike season is under way but the weather has not been that great for catching. There are several smaller males showing up in the bays but just a few big females. The warmer temps this weekend will change that. Looks like you should drop what you had planned for the weekend and go pike fishing if you are looking for a trophy pike. Find a bay and fish in 5 to 15 feet with smelt. Bigger smelt is producing some larger fish but small smelt triggers more strikes. You can suspend the bait off the bottom or it can even lay on the bottom, it don't matter.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report

Some real nice fish still being caught in the bays in shallow water.

 Find 4 to 12 feet of water adjacent to some deeper water and give it a try. Make sure to be quiet at sundown or you will spook the fish. Best is to set tipups away from your vehicle.

A nice 25 lb pike was weighed in here on Thursday. Caught by Brian Braasch and Joel Kelly from Minot. The pike was 46.5 inches long.

Still good on the east end sunken humps for walleyes. Ice is still good. Fish 8 to 15 feet for walleyes 14 to 18 inches and some bigger. I have not gotten out this week because I am getting the store ready to open but Bob is limiting out every day.

Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report
Not much change from last week. The east end of the big lake is still fair to good for walleyes. Some pike being caught in the bays.

Getting in on the West Totten Trail road is terrible but you don't have many choices for access. Make sure you know where you are going as you come off in the dark or you will get a cold bath. The water is open around the old 83 where it meets the lake. Go off to the west of the old highway. 4 wheel drive is almost a must, however some 2 wheelers are making it.

I, Nicole, Nathan, and Vince have fished the east end Monday and Tuesday. We have caught a total of 22 walleyes from 15 to 21 inches. I had one to the hole that I could not get turned up, tried to back her up to turn her head and pulled the hook out. She was 8 to 10 lbs.

Use buckshot rattlers to coax them in, jigging constantly, tip with a minnow or 2. Also plain trebles on tipups are working also. Still use 2-3 minnows per hook, even on a single hook like a Genz or leadhead jig.

Find and island that tops out at 5-8 feet and set up your lines in 5-16 feet of water.  The bite for us was from 4:30-7:00 at night and 6:30 to 8:30 in the morning.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report
Still lots of small fish showing up in deep water. Being I am catching walleyes on the big lake in shallower water I would suggest you guys fishing Audubon to try the same. Find 4 to 12 feet of water adjacent to some deeper water and give it a try. Make sure to be quiet at sundown or you will spook the fish. Best is to set tipups away from your vehicle or fish house.

The east end right now is producing alot of good eater sized walleyes.  Walleyes 14 in. to 19in. are common. 

Dad and I fished a sunken hump on the east end out in the middle on Tuesday night.  We had 10 to 12 bites and caught and kept 7 walleyes.  It didn't matter what color jigs.  All that mattered is that you used 2-3 minnows per jig.

Find and island that tops out at 5-8 feet and set up your lines in 5-16 feet of water.  The bite for us was from 4:30-7:00.

Lake Audubon Fishing Report
I fished Audubon and Monday and Wednesday night had alot of bites and caught lots of fish all 13in. or less no keepers.  I fished in 35-40 feet both nights.

 For walleyes fish the mouth of Douglas Bay, any where in Wolf Creek, or the mouth of Garrison Bay. Fish in 24 to 40 feet deep off fast drops with hard bottoms and later in the evening seems to be reporting more fish.

For catching or spearing pike, fish the same bays but in the back of them in shallower water.

I'm fishing 38 to 41 feet of water and having a great bite at sundown. We are icing 30 to 50 fish a nite between 3 houses but keeping very few. When you set the hook you can feel if they are small you need to bring them up slowly so they don't blow the air sac. If the sac is blowed out into the throat of the fish you need to keep them.

Lots of fishing being done over the holidays. Even some catching being reported.

Good spots to try are Nelson Bay, Refuge Headquarters, Old Church Bay and Carbody Island.

For walleyes fish in 17 to 21 feet for the night bite and 28 to 35 feet during the day. Use Genz Worms, Neon Lites, Lunar Grubs or plain treble hooks tipped with minnows.

For perch fish in 20 to 30 feet with Lunar Grubs tipped with minnows, minnow heads or wax worms. Old Church Bay is the best area right now for perch.

Ice conditions are still kind of dangerous. Most bays now have 10 to 14 inches but there are still some thing spots so be careful.
