October 14, 2018: 
We received about 6-7 inches of snow this past week.  But the smallmouth bite has been outstanding.  I don't think we have had a better smallmouth bite.  Lots of fish and the quality has been great.  Most all smallies are in that 17-19 inch range.  The weather is supposed to be warmer by the end of this coming week.  So the fishing should be really good.  The walleye bite has also been excellent.  Lots of bigger fish in shallow water. - Courtesy of Fish Hunter Guide Service

An extremely good bite on Big Stone Lake for perch.  Mostly in the 9-11" range.  Opitz is great for walleye, with a lot of action there.  A lot of 14" fish.  Remember, the limit there is 2 a day with a 15" minimum.  Not a lot of action on Bitter Lake, other than some shore fishing.  There's only a little bit of interest on Waubay.
