    Heading up to the Waubay area the weekend of 9/23. Any “catching” info would be appreciated. Would sure like to eliminate un-productive water, esp at $3.00 a gallon! Not adverse to any area lake, but usually fish Waubay, Pickeral, and Enemy Swim. Thanks in advance!

    Probably not a lot of good now, but I was there Aug. 10-14. Best action was definitely Waubay for numbers. Enemy Swim had a good bluegill and smallmouth bite. Everyone was talking about Bitter having a good eye bite, but we only got one. Swan was basically dead with algae all over in the water. Lynn gave us a few nice walleyes too. We fished Waubay, Lynn, Enemy, Horseshoe, Swan, Bitter. All were about equal. We only brought home 9 eyes and a lone perch. Let me know how you end up, September is the time we usually go.

    Nick, thank you for the report. I hope with the falling water temperatures, the fish might start feeding up. We’ve been up in September for the last 4 years and usually do OK. Thanks again.

    I forgot to mention in my email, that Lynn has been producing some decent eyes. You can also keep busy with the crappie about this time of year. It is full of true slabs. Only a 2 eye limit, but the action is fun.

    Well, just got back from our annual boys trip 9/23-9/27 and the fishing was OK, not great, but OK. Tried to fish Bitter on Friday, but the wind was just too strong and blew us off. Actually took one over the Bow and that has never happened! Did well on Pickerel, Did well on Waubay but had to fight the wind again. Fished Enemy Swim and only managed a few Smallies. Lots of Rock Bass on Pickerel with an occasional decent walleye, a few crappies, Smallies (Of course didn’t keep any) a few Pike, largest Pike went 8.5 lbs. Waubay gave up a limit of six eye’s (3 guys) and caught a few shorts. Other buddies in two boats didn’t do as well. First year we ever caught Smallies on Waubay though, However not a perch to be had. With all of the cold fronts we had to contend with, we found fish in any of the three lakes at least 12 ft and deeper. nothing shallower. Worm was a better bite than minnows (again, unusual for our group).

    It was still a great trip. However, One of these times, I’m going to hit it when a front isn’t coming through.
