The bite on Oahe has taken off. Long-time friend Kenny Glanzer and his friend fished Sutton's Bay with a plain hook and crawler in 10'-12' of water. The bite can be had on Oahe anywhere from Whitlock's down to Bush's and Okoboji creek is doing very well.
The bite on Oahe should stay strong throughout the month of July and August. As the heat continues throughout summer, the fish will go deeper. Right now, concentrate back in bays and the mouths of bays. Towards mid-July end of July, concentrate on sunken humps and islands.
The bite on Lake Thompson is also taking off. My last 3 outings on Thompson were kind of a hit and miss as I was fishing cold fronts with 30 mph winds out of the north. Overcast and windy days. But we did manage to find a few. This week's weather has turned the bite into an automatic bite - fish can be had at the south end of the lake in depths ranging from 7'-15' of water, depending on wind and overcast. Plain hook and spinners.
