First things first, we have added another guide so we now have 2 boats to allow greater availability and to allow us to accommodate larger groups. Andrew Fisketjon has joined Liebel's Guide Service! He has many years of experience fishing Lake Sakakawea, he has been fishing it his entire life! Give us a call ASAP to grab the new dates we have available! (701)770-6746 The calendar will now have a new look, it will tell you if Boat 1(myself) or Boat 2(Andrew) is available or booked. Check it out!
I also must apologize as I had a mistake on the rack cards I had printed this spring. I incorrectly listed the prices for 3 and 4 person trips. We are going to honor the rack card prices if you bring the rack card with you on your trip. So if you bring the rack card to a 3 or 4 person trip you get a $50 discount! Normally those trips at $550 and $700, but with the rack card it's $500 and $650! Take advantage of our mistake to save some money!
As for the fishing, the water temps are finally reaching the low 60's throughout Lake Sakakawea. That means the bite should be picking up all over the lake. The lake is also rising very fast, which has brought the midline down past Tobacco Gardens and Lund's Landing, the fishing is generally very difficult in the muddy water. We have been focusing much of our time in the New Town, Van Hook, and Deepwater areas. The walleye fishing has been a little bit hit or miss. If you get on the right spot you can catch a bunch quickly or it may be a grind of many spots to catch a few keeper walleyes. I don't have a real solid depth or pattern because it is changing so much each day. Be flexible and willing to try something new or different! Look for windblown shorelines in the afternoon, that has been the most consistent pattern.
