Brief Report Details: 

Fished 5-18 and got 6, kept 5. Fished noon til dark and most fish came the last half hour I was fishing. Fished this morning as well and had my limit in less than an hour, Kept fishing just for fun and picked up three more I released. I missed a lot of fish both trips. Water is high and stained right now and has been staying right under 50 degrees. Been getting nothing to go on minnows or crawlers, tried tossing cranks and twisters as well with no luck. All fish came on swimbaits. Bigggest one was 25 in at 4.5 lbs. I was fishing Mandan side south of the refinery, but I think you'll find them anywhere now. The ladies have dropped their eggs and the fish are aggressive, get out while you can, it's a blast. Tight lines!!
