Well we are in Fort Peck, MT at the moment getting ready for the Rock Creek Tournament. This tournament is known for big fish with 75+ pounds winning the past few year and a record weight of 97 pounds!
The weather here is terrible. Lake wind advisory, constant rain with totals for the last 3 days being 2-6 inches. We did make it out fishing yesterday afternoon for a couple hours after the interesting road into the rock creek marina (check out the video here). We caught a few northerns and small walleyes but the highlight happened within 20 minutes of dropping our first line, a beautiful 28 inch walleye! Hopefully the fish stay there and we can catch a few more like that tomorrow and sunday! We are not fishing today since all of our gear is soaked, and it's still raining and there are 4+ foot waves, and the road into rock creek is very treacherous! So the plan for tomorrow is to hit the big fish spot right away then run and gun trying to find active fish! The weather change is going to change fishing patterns so being able to adapt quickly is a must. It's going to be an exiting tournament!
As for Lake Sakakawea, the water temps are still a little bit cool for the hot walleye bite, but there are fish being caught. It just takes a little more patience. Smallmouth bass and northern are also starting to heat up as well.
I will be coaching at the State Class A Golf Tournament early next week, but will be fishing starting next friday! Call me to book your trip today! June dates are filling up fast and July is already very busy so call asap!
