Lake Sakakawea

(or electronics
/livescope training)

Lake Sakakawea
2024 RATES

7hrs dock to dock 
$600(1-2 people)
$900 (3 people)

(Add $200 for an 11 hr trip)
FYI I'm currenlty NOT offering ice fishing trips. There is a $200 deposit required to book trips (remaining balance is paid at conclusion of fishing trip).  If you have to cancel for any reason it must be more than two weeks in advance of the trip or you will lose the deposit money.

Trips could involve specifically targeting a certain species such as walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, or white bass etc. Or we could take more of a multi species/whatever is biting best approach.   I also commonly get requests for electronics and specifically livescope training which I can do also. 

If you would like to keep fish for eating that is fine, and I clean and bag fish afterwards. I do strongly encourage releasing larger fish of all species and only harvesting smaller to medium size fish.  If you have any questions about this I'd love to answer any questions you may have.

I predominantly fish the western half of Lake Sakakawea.   There are exceptions where I fish the eastern part of Lake Sakakawea but most of my experience and trips happen in the western part of the lake between Williston and the Van Hook Arm.  Most summer walleye trips I run out of the New Town/4 Bears Casino area.

What you get guaranteed with every guided fishing trip: a fun adventure, quality equipment, bait/lures, safety gear, education about the fish/the lake/patterning the fish, understanding sonar/electronics, rigging, quality photos/video of your catch, and I will clean any fish you keep as well.  Something I can't guarantee: catching giant fish or limits of fish every time. However, with some persistence most days turn into very memorable fish catching days as well! 

 I run a 2021 Skeeter SX 230 Bay Boat with a 250 Yamaha outboard with a mix of Humminbird, Garmin (including livescope), and Simrad (very similar to Lowrance) electronics.  The boat is very effective for both running big water and has great fishability for casting or trolling applications.  

All the fishing gear is provided by me, but please bring your fishing license, appropriate clothing/rain gear, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a lunch!

Seasonally various bites and preferred locations come and go so contact me and let me know your interests and we will figure out a trip for you!

I look forward to fishing with you!
