    • Fishing & Hunting South Dakota's Lake Oahe and Lake Sharpe
I guided John Meinars and his work friend out for a day trip on Sharpe. A couple of great young men just out of military service. We all had a great time. Then took Jay Lewis and friend from Rapid and Great Falls for a day on Sharpe and a day on Oahe. The first trip was great weather and limits went in the boat catching these walleye in around 10 fow mostly on crawler/bouncer rigs. Did the same in big wind the next day and did not catch limits but went on Oahe day two with the Montana guys and got full limits of smallmouth bass to 5 lbs. and a northern along with a couple of catfish using bouncer/minnow rigs in around 30 fow. Sharpe has lots of boats everywhere ( many driving 180 miles round trip from Chamberlain) but other than a few bass boats we never saw another boat all day long on Oahe. One other trailer at the boat ramp at Little Bend so if you just want to fish without a lot of traffic and catch smallmouth,, northern and some catfish no doubt the big lake is a great choice. Walleye fishing however is much better on Sharpe now as I think many of the walleye are down even deeper than 50 feet on Oahe making them harder to catch. Weather is always a big factor with fishing but it will start to play a bigger roll as fall comes around. Colder nights/days make for colder water and the start of the fall bite and many years this is one of the better times for nicer fish. We shall see if this year brings that kind of bite and my reports will indicate if that is the case.
