Karl's Fishing Report

3/19/2015 12:00:00 AM

LAKE OAHE is totally free of ice now.  Gone in just a couple days thanks to some high temps and winds.  The next 2 weeks are prime time for the biggest Pike of the year.   This bite will last 2 to 3 weeks and the super huge trophy Pike ALWAYS come early.  NOW is the time to come chase the Pike of your dreams. 

Look for the warmest water that you can find in the back of any major bay, throw out a quick strike rig baited with the biggest Smelt that you can find and hold on.  Bring a gaff as those giant Pike are hard to get on shore and almost impossible to net in shallow water. 

I am fishing hard now and I am mainly concentrating on Pike and Salmon right now.  I am chasing Pike from shore tomorrow as the forecast is high winds for the next few days.  Once the wind goes down I am going to break out my Pro-V and longline for some Salmon in the mornings and then hit a bay in the afternoons for Pike.  

LAKE SHARPE is putting out some nice Walleyes but its nothing fast.  The usual spring haunts of the stilling basin, bridges, antelope creek, Ft. George are holding some fish.  Jig and Minnow all the way.   The bite on Sharpe and Oahe is just going to get better and better as the water temps warm into the low 40's. 

I will keep you posted.  Thanks!
