 fishing was much slower yesterday and only caught one over on a slow death hook, bottom bouncer half a crawler up north.. We caught six unders about 10 to 13 inches. one on plug and rest on bottom bouncer and spinners full crawler. we did not catch any slot fish yesterday. we did catch one bass up North as well. we fished close to 5 hours but it was pouring rain and definitely much much slower than two days prior fishing the same exact spots. Graphed a lot of fish but could not get them to bite.

 Great plug bite going at orman. Our boat of four krot our 4 overs around 22 inches each and caught all of our unders around 10 to 13 inches each but threw them back. Caught a lot of fish over 18 and a lot under 15 and only a few slots. The over 18 wanted it slow and unders would bite when we trolled faster. Great great day on the water but water was very rough with some whitecap but the ranger boat did it's job.

Fishing Report Lakes Oahe/Sharpe Pierre area for May 14th thru May 21th 2015

I guided the Tom Gilbert Group from Michigan, then the Cooper Group from the Des Moines area and Bill Hilbert and his friend Tim from Kansas over the last 7 days. We fished both at West Bend on Sharpe for walleye/smallmouth and on Oahe for northern/catfish. We caught the fish at west bend mostly on either flicker shad plugs or bouncer/minnows in 8 fow or less and we caught the catfish/northern in 5 fow or less on slip bobbers/smelt in the back of creeks/bays. The last trip I guided we caught more northern than the previous trips along with around 25 nice catfish average. There are a lot of boats in the Bend area and the bite there is mostly good for walleye and smallmouth however numbers of under 15 inch fish are being released to get limits. From the bad river down to the bend the water is still too muddy to do much. Walleye fishing on Oahe around Pierre is still slow but temps are coming up so the bite should get better with every warm day.
