It has been awhile since
we updated the fishing report. It has been a pretty good summer
for fishing. We did not experience the normal late summer lull
but then we did not have the normal hot weather either. It did
slow down in mid August for a couple of weeks but the reports
that we have heard the past week indicates that it has really
picked back up. Reports of limits in the 17 to 19 inch range and
with a good bite going on too. Fishermen are also reporting the
fish are aggressively biting and that they are full of small
chad when they clean them.
Again, fall is normally a
good time for fishing. The fish are more aggressive and the
sizes are normally larger as well.
Make plans now for that
last fishing trip of the year. Give us a call to make your
Committee's Ice tourney is full. They will be broadcasting the
lottery drawing live from the Wrangler Inn's Windjammer Lounge
on October 15 at 7pm. There will be prizes and specials
offered that evening if you would like to stop by for the
drawing. If you can not make it, you can watch it live on
Fall fishing is normally a good time to catch
nice sized fish. Most people in the area are Pheasant hunting,
some hunt & fish or just fish, with good success at
both. One fisherman had really good success. In October of
2012, local fisherman Steve Rowe went out by himself and caught
his limit in just over a couple of hours with his over 20"
fish being a big 8 1/2 pound Walleye. Just to show that he
knew what he was doing, Steve went out again on Sunday and
brought in another limit with this time his over 20" was a
31 inch, 9 lb. Walleye. He then had time to go hunting in the
afternoon each day. We had the last fish mounted and it is
hanging in the Windjammer.

all the big Walleyes are gone in Lake Oahe at Mobridge????
9 pound 30" Walleye was caught on November 6th, 2009
just north of Mobridge along the west side of Lake Oahe in the
Cuthead area. It was caught in approximately 40 foot of water
using a 1/2 ounce bottom bouncer with a spinner. It was a
cool day, about 50 degrees and not much wind. A great day for
fall fishing. So just to dispel the rumors, we are still
one of the best places to catch walleye and to have a great time
doing it. Make your plans now to visit Mobridge next spring,
summer & fall for your chance at that BIG WALLEYE.

Mobridge, located on the
shores of Lake Oahe, is known as one of the top walleye fishing
the nation. In addition, anglers will find trophy northern
pike and an abundance of white bass, catfish and other game
In the spring, Mobridge is the
best location on the entire Oahe Reservoir for landing rainbow
smelt during their annual spawning run. Smelt fishermen
come from all over the Upper Great Plains to haul in literally
gallons of the tasty little fish. The state has also added
Chinook Salmon to Lake Oahe, and the Mobridge area is one of the
hot spots during early fall spawning run. Summer or
Winter, fishing is fun in the Mobridge area because Lake Oahe
provides room for you to fish miles from any other fishermen.
