Fishing in a South Dakota

Post by NEFarmwife » Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:10 pm

I’ve spent 13 hours on the lake. 2 different ones and I haven’t caught a darn thing.

Walleye, Trout, Bass, Perch... I’ve used worms, leeches, various lures. Not even a nibble. Multiple spots I’ve tried.

Hubby caught two smaller walleye today but I’m so over fishing. Any tips? I have to catch atleast ONE.

My uncle is a walleye champion (world champ) but he can’t be out here with us because he just got put on hospice but didn’t recommend this darn lake we’re at.

Any chance of finding a local guide that you can pay a few bucks to put you on the fish?

With leeches I would be using them on a jig and fishing the edges of the weed lines for walleye, bluegill and perch I would be using a wax worm on a small hook and a small bobber. If that doesn't work, look up lake links for the lake your fishing and they should have fishing reports for that lake.
