Hey Epic,

I grew up in South Dakota. All the people from North Dakota are a bunch of yahoos. ;D

I can give you some advice on South Dakota and My brther in law lives in Bismarck, I can check with him on other places. Also what type of fish do you want to target?

Walleye try Waubay Lake.
Muskie try Amsden.

Both of these are near the Webster/Waubay area. Lots of great fishing lakes in that area.

Walleye, crappie and Bluegill try Richmond. Outside of Aberdeen.

For Bullhead and walleye Elm Lake. Just south of the ND/SD border on US-281.

Bass and Bluegill, Roy Lake, Near Britton.

The James River can be good for Walleye, Northern and catfish. The locals call it the the "Jim River" orjust the "the Jim"

Walleye can be very good on the Oahe Reservoir (Missouri River from Gettysburg to Mobridge, though a boat makes fishing it much easier.

I'll check with a couple of people and see if I can get you a whats hot whats not on that area.

Epic,

Here are the numbers for some bait shops in the North East South Dakota area. They might be able to give you some advice for fishing that area.

Another thing If you buy minnows there and if you ask for a dozen you will get a strange look. They sell minnows by the scoop. I have had as many as 2 dozen in a scoop but always at least a dozen.

You can also buy a single day license or if you will have several days you and Cody can both fish on a "Family License" Its good for you, spouse and any kids under the age of 16. The only catch is you are all limited to the equilavalent limit for one person. I buy that when I go visit my Parents in Aberdeen. Same price as an adult out of state annual license.

Kokales Fishing Gallery 624 South 16th Street Aberdeen SD 57401 US (605) 225-0222

Matterns Sporting Goods and Bait 107 North Roosevelt Street Aberdeen SD 57401 US (605) 229-2787

Grenville Sport & Convenience Grenville SD 57239 US (605) 486-4641 (Waubay and Webster area)

Highway 10 Bait Service Sisseton SD 57262 US (605) 698-7379 (Roy Lake, Big Stone Lake Area)
