Lake Thompson overcast walleye fishing

Lake Thompson overcast walleye fishing

I have fished Oahe and Sharpe since 1994, to include a few years of guiding with my dad, prior to taking over the business. I love it! I love meeting new people. I enjoy the camaraderie that develops throughout the day and I enjoy sharing ideas and knowledge concerning the great sport of fishing. I've also been fishing glacier lakes: Thompson, Poinsettia, and Sinai since the early '90s.

Lake Thompson Species - walleye, pike, perch, crappie, sm bass, catfish.

So far, I have been more than lucky in meeting some great folks while guiding and I am looking forward to meeting and fishing with even more. For those of you who have not fished on our great fisheries I am looking forward to meeting you and taking out on trips that will create great memories for you.

I believe Lake Oahe and Lake Sharpe are the Capitol of walleye fishing in central South Dakota. The great thing about fishing for these walleye is that you run into other species such as trophy small-mouth bass, trophy pike, white bass, channel and blue cats, and the list goes on with occasional trout and salmon. About 6 years ago, I expanded my waters for guiding on glacier lake, Lake Thompson. Lake Thompson offers a variety of species to be had: walleye, pike, perch, crappie, sm bass, and white bass.

When I'm not on the water, I have a small welding repair shop (www.abawelding.com). I hold 3 AWS certifications in welding.

These days I'm still guiding on Lakes, Oahe, Sharpe and Thompson and my schedule fills fast. Early bookings are much appreciated.

Here I am with my beloved, late friend, Dick Sterud, thank you for your brotherhood, competitiveness, and all the great memories including this special day in July of 1999 when we both captured a pair of Proud Angler Walleye.
