From walleye to carp, Lake Oahe is a diverse fishery with a ton of fun at the end of your line. Whether
you want a relaxing day on the water, or want to learn new techniques or locations of fish producing
spots, I will do my utmost to make your day on the lake an enjoyable outing. Noviced or experienced,
you'll have a memorable fishing trip using dependable equipment at competitive and up-front rates.
Fishing Photos and Outdoor links
A link here connects you to numerous photos taken over the last few years - photos of walleye to
carp. Also included is a link to the SD Game, Fish and Parks website, where a person can become
acquainted with SD fishing rules and regulations. Fishing licenses may be purchased on-line at the
state website as well.

Rates and Equipment
Here's a list of the different packages that I offer and what I charge for each. The equipment that we'll
use is listed: my boat, its electronics, motors, rods/reels and misc. equipment.
Several packages are available. This link will get you to them and their rates. I can take out one
to four people, or I can arrange to have a large group guided with several boats (no pay guarantee
may not apply - ask about it). I'll work around what you need; from the time of day we fish, to the
length of time on the water.
The fishing is so good on Lake Oahe, that there's a "no fish - no pay" guarantee. If your group doesn't
catch a fish, you don't pay a thing. Half a limit is 1/2 guide fee. No fish = the trip is on the guide.
This guarantee applies to a two-person limit and to 8 hrs of fishing during June/July/August.
In '15, I'm holding a "big fish" tournament where the person who catches the longest walleye on a
booked outing with me will win a free guided day in '16.
