We are experiencing the dog days of summer in a few northeastern lakes. Fishing isn’t fast and furious but fish can be caught. You may have to switch species.

Big Stone Lake

The perch bite is going but not every day. Tungsten jigs tipped with spikes works the best. They are light biters! There is also a decent bluegill bite going on over and along side the rocks.

A few limits of walleyes are being taken up north pulling plugs. In doing so they’re also catching a few perch.   

Lake Poinsett

Still catching quite a few walleyes in that 13” to 16” range. The SD GFP wants the smaller walleyes thin down due to over population. Spinners and crawlers or a spinner and minnow are working well.

Perch anglers are getting some very nice perch. You just need to move around and find them.

Lake Albert

Albert has really slowed down to what it has been.

Bitter Lake

A few walleyes being caught along the weed line using spinner/crawler combo or a jig and minnow.
