Oahe / Sharpe
Monday, June 15, 2015
Oahe continues to have a good bite in the Pierre area. I have been fishing from Agency to Sutton bay and I have been finding fish all through there. It has been a wind driven bite for me. My best luck comes when the wind blows and the fish roll up shallow. 6 to 12 foot deep on windswept points is my best pattern. Classic Oahe mudlines... Its an amazing bite when you find it. I have been using minnows and crawlers on plain hook rigs. Been more crawler lately... I have been pulling an occasional crankbait up shallow too. Walleyes and Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Catfish.... Everything is going now. Fun. The fish are moving out deeper as the water is warming up. There is a deeper livebait bite going on too. 16 to 25 foot. I have been working the shallow, more aggressive fish. Its going good.
The best bite has been from Joe Creek on down. Channel edges and sunken humps. Lots of smaller fish to go thru but the bigger fish are there. Just be patient and work your patterns. Bouncers and live bait. Both Plain hook rigs and spinners. 12 to 25 foot. Minnows and crawlers. Crankbaits up shallow for the Smallies. Key on the channel edges and big flats. Oahe is where its at... Its not even close.
