Ice fishing has been great on Lake Sakakawea. Over my christmas break we found the saugers to be in 20-40 feet of water. The morning were best for us, but we never really fished the evening because we had our limits by noon most days. I've been fishing from Tobacco Gardens all the way to Skunk Bay. Jigging was out producing the tip-ups by a very large margin.
Coming up this weekend I'll be fishing in the Catch for a Cure Ice Fishing Tournament out of Tobacco Gardens. This is a great event with the proceeds going towards Relay for Life. If you are available come out and join the fun! 2 person teams. Fishing is from 8-6 saturday with the rules meeting Friday January 18th at 7pm. All events take place at Tobacco Gardens!
