Fished Goodners on Tuesday and Wednesday night last week.. Both very nice nights to be out. Caught tons of fish - nothing of great size or anything but was way better than sitting in the hotel all night. Lots of 9-10" Crappies and some medium-sized sunfish. Seemed like if you were in that 8-12' depth range you would mark fish no matter what hole you were in.

I know you said winter, but I would strongly consider ice-out (in a typical year, the ice does start to come off Oahe in March).

Ice-out can be absolutely fantastic out there if you hit it at the right time and you can fish right from shore and be successful. It's hard to plan a trip there ahead of time, it's more like if you hear the ice is off - then you should head there. Most of the guys fish the bays above the dam in Pierre such as: Spring Creek, Okobojo and Cow Creek. Most of the time they just throw out a large smelt with a quick strike rig or something similar and just let it sit on the bottom. You want to hit the shallower areas of the bays with flats that will have warmer water. I'd say anything under that 15' depth is best, because they're looking to spawn, obviously. Hope that helps you out! I have no experience getting them through the ice but if I had to pick a time to get big Pike, it would definitely be right after the ice goes out.

As far as places to stay, there's plenty of hotels in Pierre. If you want to be close to water there's Spring Creek Resort & Marina and The Outpost Lodge.

Don't forget to release the biggens!

Heading up to the St. Cloud for work, thinking about throwing in the ice gear and doing a little hole hoping. Any reports? Thinking about Grand, Goodners, Pearl or Pleasant.. Shoot me a PM if you like. I'd imagine the ice is still good??

Thanks in advance!

We didn't get out as much as I would've like due to the rain but we tried to do some vertical jigging with Raps on Saturday.. Small fish, nothing worth mentioning.

My new addiction. Been a good year for picking it, lots of rain and some heat mixed in helps a lot.

You can't tell by looking at them. Assume everything over 20" is a female and throw it back.

Skunk off. Works like a charm in my experience.

Check the first post of this thread.. He updates it when the sizes change. 12" is what you need for a free Bluegill.
