We fish a lot of different lakes in Northeast South Dakota. Each week we'll highlight some different lakes for our fishing report.

Lake Albert

Pretty decent walleye bite going on right now. Pulling plugs and covering water seems to be the best presentation. Number 4 Salmo Hornets and #4.5 Rattling Hornets along with #5 Flicker Shads are working the best for us. Each day varies as how the bite goes. One day it’s hot and the next day you have to work pretty hard for them.

Lake Poinsett

There is a very good bite going on right now. This lake is loaded with smaller walleyes (13 to 14 inches) and the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks took the 15” minimum length limit off as we need to get some if these fish out of the system.

Try the new Butterfly Blade Super Death Rig from Northland Tackle and half a crawler out in 12 to 15 ft of water and hold on!

I’ve seen some very nice crappies on Poinsett too. Once you find them a jig and plastic works great.

Waubay Lake

The white bass bite on Waubay is HOT! Pull cranks out in the basin and hold on. 80 white bass in a day is possible. The walleyes are with the white bass also.
