Just follow sdwxman; he catches all the hogs!

Reetz would be a good bet.  There are still some of those big walleyes from the late 90's early 00's year classes in Waubay, and I know there were several PA's taken from there last year.  In fact, if I'm not mistaken, Waubay may have had the highest number of PA's reported to Dakota Country Magazine, if I remember right.   I caught a 29" fish there in April. 

I think Roy Lake and Lake Thompson also kick out some real pigs at certain times of the year.

After all this talk about big Walleyes, decided to take the afternoon off. A couple of 25 inchers and a 15 pound Musky made this a great afternoon....

I know I'll be on Thompson every nite next week with the full moon. Large blu and orange husky jerks. Roy would be a good bet as well. A real sleeper is Lynn. You might also pick up a bomber of a saugeye. There arent many left but if you get one it will be 6+.
