Fishing Report

West Bend

Flying Walleye

This father/son team from Duluth, Minnesota had a great fishing trip with us this August.  The fishing is still fantastic at West Bend.  

Craig had a rare fish in his hands, and proudly held it up for a picture only to have it fly away. Those flying walleye are tricky!  

So, here is today's lesson .... when posing with a slippery, wet, fish be careful how you hold it. When it starts to wiggle, don't squeeze too hard.  Or, it will could pop out of your hands and straight up in the air, plopping into the lake before the camera could click.  

Thanks, Craig, for another great story about the one that got away!

Digger Doug and Company

How do you show your employees that you appreciate them? 

Digger Doug of Stuart, IA takes his two favorite employees on a fishing trip every year.  This year, he came to visit his old high school buddy, Brad Beeler.  

They had some fantastic days of fishing.  Nate and Ryan joined Doug for some excellent Walleye fishing and some great evenings at The Outpost Lodge.  They traveled to West Bend for a couple of days and spent one day on Lake Oahe.  They went home with plenty of fish to share with their family and friends.  

They were joined for the weekend by another high school buddy, Jim Nelson and his group of friends. Their trip started out a little slow, but once Brad got them on the fish , Curtis had luck with a nice small mouth bass, and the walleye bite was good too. They had more fish than the board down at West Bend could hold.  

Arnie is already planning a return trip in August, and Curtis is hoping to come again too.  

Crazy Canadians

Les and Ernie came all the way from Alberta, Canada to find out what Bass fishing is all about.  They have caught their share of Walleye up north, but had never fished for Small-mouth Bass.  

So, they found Spring Creek Resort & Marina on-line and drove down to check it out.  When I met them,the first words out of Les' mouth was "Can we bring refreshments on the boat?" and I knew we were going to have a GOOD TIME! 

Now, the wind always blows in South Dakota - but she showed us just how much she could blow! It was a windy three days, but we still managed to get some nice looking bass.  West Bend is still the best bass fishing in the area and luckily a little protected from that North wind too!
