FISHING TIPS
 ON FISHING AREA LAKES NEAR LUNDS LANDING MARINA & LODGE

New: State of the Art Fish Cleaning Station!

Dear Guest,

     In the Lunds Landing Marina & Lodge area, the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers' flowages along with regional Prairie Lakes, offer excellent angling opportunities.  Lake Sakakawea, named for the American Indian Woman who helped guide Lewis and Clark 200 years ago, is the third-largest manmade lake in the United States.  This vast lake, which features more shoreline than the State of California, is home to numerous types of fish.  Walleye is the most popular catch, but anglers can reel in Northern Pike weighing more than 20 pounds, Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Catfish, Rainbow Trout, Yellow Perch, Crappie and Sauger.

    The above mentioned areas have always had a reputation for producing Walleyes.  Whether you choose to fish from shore, a Bass boat, V-Hull boat or Pontoon, you will find a "fishin hole" on Lake Sakakawea.

     Walleye, Crappies, Northern Pike, Catfish and White Bass are found in the local areas.  We  will gladly offer tips on fishing in the area.  We recommend 1/8-3/8 ounce orange or chartreuse jigs and a fathead minnow tight to the shoreline or standing tree stumps.  Drifting or trolling with bottom bouncers and spinners tipped with crawlers or leeches are also effective.  Crappies and Walleyes will hold up in tree stump areas and slip bobbers and 1/32 ounce jigs with a small minnow on a number 4 or 6 hook work well.  Carefully move from tree to tree until you find a school of fish.

     Northern Pike hunters are also drawn to The Lunds Landing Marina & Lodge Area pursuing a wall hanger.  If time permits, you have a good chance at catching a 20 pound pike.  In May and June, Northern Pike relate to the shallow shoreline edge of bays in pursuit of forage.  Work the shallows (4-8') with bottom quick strike rigs tipped with smelt, chartreuse buck tails or shallow running crank baits.  In September and October, try soaking a creek chub, smelt or large fathead along the steep rock shorelines.

     Once you arrive at Lunds Landing Marina & Lodge, fishing options are at hand.  As you criss-cross the area, you will find diversity that gives angles choices in every season.  the area is recognized for its Walleye fishing, but you will find treasures within small bodies of water and small rivers and creeks.

     Quality Largemouth Bass are found at Kota Ray Lake with fish weighing 4 pounds.  The best time to fish Largemouth on Kota Ray us from late May through June.  At this time, they are shallow and cooperate even for the novice angler.  Cast near the rocks using a plastic grub, spinner bait or crank bait.  Work the bait as tight to the rocks as possible.  If fishing is tough, try a crawler, minnow or leech on a #4 hook.  In the fall, vertical jig along the rocks.

     All of our area lakes produce Yellow Perch; however, McGregor, Kota Ray, Springbrook and White Earth Lake get the most attention.  We say, "They are wherever you want them!"  Also, try using a small float or slip bobber with either 1/32 ounce jig with a small minnow or crawler or a small minnow on a plain hook.

     Lake Sakakawea and our Prairie Lakes offer a variety of unique fisheries.  Anglers can choose to concentrate on one lake or choose to fish from them all.  The only problem you might have is deciding which one to fish first.
