Tobacco Gardens / White Earth Bay Area - Monday, February 2, 2015

Been fishing White Earth Bay quite a bit the last couple weeks. We seem to max out at about 2 walleyes a night. We started out fishing 22' to 28' then moved out to 32+. We  had our best luck in 33' on red hooks/minnows and perch pattern jigs. All our bites came from 4p-6p.

We just hit Tobacco Gardens on Saturday, fished in 27' and caught walleyes/sauger from 10a-noon and again at about 4p. Best day of fishing we've had on the big lake. We switched up bait all day and couldn't pinpoint a favored presentation.

Went out of Lunds Sunday to enjoy the nice weather and was not disappointed.  Kept five walleye.  Caught two buffalo carp each over twenty pounds on a perch crank bait.  That was kind of surprising.  Plenty of northern and white bass to keep anyone busy.

Fished out of white earth yesterday and had pretty good luck with most everything we tried.  Fish were anywhere from 10 to 16 feet with the bigger fish coming out of the 13-16' depth.  Most of the fish were 17" and up and were very healthy looking.  It should be another stellar summer of fishing on Sakakawea.

I ice is 5-6 inches a 100 yards from shore on the main body of water. I caught all fish in about 20ft of water jigging with minnows. No fish were caught on tip-ups. The northerns were caught in the afternoon and all the walleye were caught after 4:15pm. I had steady action till about 10 and marked a lot of fish on my sonar. Pulled 4 walleye out and missed several others.

 Slow day today. First bad day of the year though so I'll take it. 6 hours, 3 flags, 2 slimers at 25" & 32". Tried smelt for the first time and every flag I had came on the dead suckers. I only have about 10 left, gonna have to stock up next time I'm in MN!! Great day to be on the ice though.
