The walleye spawn was still on, and positive reports of fish biting up and down the river prompted us to make the short drive from Mitchell. The fish were small, but the bite was consistent. A hot bite and a strong fight will always make for a fantastic day on the water.
While jigging was the preferred method of tournament anglers in the area that day, we stuck to the traditional crappie rig and minnow combo. This classic rig produced consistent action, a relaxed setting and plenty of walleyes for the dinner table.
We caught plenty of fish that day. Even if we hadn’t, it would have been a great day. Enjoying the outdoors is more than taking home a limit or trophy every time out. Friends, family and the beauty of South Dakota make any outdoor adventure worth experiencing.
