3.5 lb. Walleye caught by Buddy Seiner fishing in Lake Oahe in South Dakota on 06/14/07
3.5 lb. Walleye caught by Buddy Seiner fishing on Thursday June 14, 2007 at 15:15 in Lake Oahe 11.72 km from Mission Ridge in Stanley County, South Dakota (SD), United States North America using a double hook harness with large chartreuse blade a Worm

Lake Oahe, running from Pierre, SD (the State Capitol) to Bismark, ND is one of the greatest fisheries in the state. Holding high quanities of walleye, northern pike, salmon, catfish and smallmouth bass, Lake Oahe is a fishing enthusiast's dream come true.

A little tip when fishing the waters of Lake Oahe during the summer months...You will often find yourself fighting wind on the lake. When I caught this fish, the wind was blowing about 25 mph. When this occurs, especially in the summer time, the fish are going to move closer to shore with the baitfish. I caught this beauty in 5 ft of water, right next to shore. When the wind dies down on the lake, you will have to move to deeper water, 20-40 ft. Start low and work your way out. Crawlers and spinners usually do the trick. If the hits stop coming, take off the blade and go with a plain hook, maybe with a bead.

Thanks Albert. South Dakota had great walleye fishing last year, both on the Missouri River system and in the northeast Glacial Lakes. This year should be just as good in South Dakota.
