I will have my booth at THE COUNCIL BLUFFS RIVER CITY FISH/HUNT SPORTS SHOW starting January 20th and then the 21st and 22nd. Along with my booth I will do seminars on fishing the Missouri river system specifically targeting LAKES OAHE /SHARPE for all of the species that swim there. If you are in the area stop by my booth to either book a trip or just talk fishing. This has turned out to be one of my favorite shows with lots of exhibitor's and many other hunt, fish, etc. speaker's. For show hours and seminar speakers/times and other info you may go to www.rivercityexpo.com. Free parking at this show and general admission nine dollars or 15 and under three dollars so it is real family friendly. Hope to see you there.
I will have my booth at the Black Hills Sport Show and will also be a seminar speaker.

Both of these month's produce excellent walleye fishing along with great smallmouth/ Northern/ Catfish. Weather is a factor so many times we have to stay off big water because of high winds etc. but this is a great time to go after the big northern and catfish in the back of creeks/bays to beat the weather. Also fishing on Sharpe below Dam keeps you out of wind and produce's nice limits of walleye. Jig fishing when water temps cold along with btm. bouncer presentations as water warms most common .Boat traffic can be much more around the Pierre area.
By far the busiest month on both lakes.( School out and just traditionally start of summer season] so book early if possible to get best guides/lodging. The fishing is excellent for all species. Weather can still be a factor. We are usually fishing with Lindy or btm. bouncer's.
Best all around month for both fishing and weather especially family trips Walleye fishing at seasonal peak especially in high water periods on Oahe. and Sharpe good two. Btm. Bouncer presentations most common.
Same as July but there can be hotter weather. If there is a breeze it is not to bad as big lake water temps keep heat down. Fish can be a little deeper but still great fishing.
Very good on the walleye fishing with fall weather great toward end of month. As water cools jig fishing starts to come into play again.
Fishing is still good but weather coming into play again Jigs work best especially in colder water. Combination Hunting /fishing trips most common. Just a note: You can catch fish in all the months above tolling or casting plugs and we do that often. But I have found that guiding people over the years most prefer live bait hover fishing better so I spend more time with btm/bouncer/crawler/minnow/leeches than the plugs but pulling plugs is always a good alternative and sometimes can be the best.
