FISHING REPORT
12/25/14 9:41 PM CST
Ice Depth: 15"
Dec 25th; We have three lakes producing walleyes. Buck shots and jigging raps with minnow head works best. Lindy flying jig works also. Northern bite is very good. The perch bite is back at Beck Lake for some fishermen. Still looking for a better perch bite. I have an opening starting 12/31 with depart 1/2/2015. Also 1/4 with depart 1/11. Also 1/10 with depart 1/16. Also I have a small house for up to four people, starting 1/4 to April. We have about four inches of snow. Easy on all lakes with 4x4 suburbans and pick ups. Remember to check your own ice! Nobody can do it for you! Good fishing and good luck. Don 608-697-6910 c

Dec 24th; The some of the traditional great perch lakes are showing promise! Two lakes have a great walleye bite. Some northern lakes have produced very well with a new lure that pounded them. Thamco, I never said I was anything! My friends and customers do. You seem like a guy that would like to tear down bridges instead of building them! I hope your life's ambitions are more than the satisfaction of seeing a pile of bridge rubble! Yes, I do make up names of lakes! I protect the lake names from the internet and guy's like you! Mary's Lake is a good example. Mary is a wonderful lady that can out fish the guys and make a kick ass good apple pie! What better reason is there! She loves having a lake named after her! Beck lake is just west a bit of Dead Duck Lake and very close to Clue Less Fisherman Slough! Our area wardens have a tough job to do! They protect our fishery from resident and non-residents alike. Only fat head minnows from North Dakota! Please, all boaters show respect to our lakes and the law everywhere. Drain and remove lake water and weeds from your boat and trailer at the ramp or they will remove some green from your pocket! Good fishing and good luck. Don 608-697-6910 c

Stayed at Don's this week. Had a great time. The fishing was slow but we managed to take home some very nice perch. He put us right into the perch. The shanty we rented was top of the line with heaters and a bathroom. We hole hopped for awhile and picked up some 13 inch perch! We managed a few walleye on our tip downs with a minnow! Seems the fish wanted small green vertical jigs with a small waxie on it. We hot them with everything we had and did ok. The house we rented was very nice and we relaxed at night and fell asleep in the comfortable chairs and sofa! Cant wait to return for another relaxing great time! Thanks Don for the great maps and info you provide your clients. You run a top notch outfit! Tom Luedtke.

As both a resident/non-resident fisherman and hunter through the years, I have to say that from what I have seen, we as sportsman need to get along. I've met some truly nice folks along the way and have to say that Don is definitely one of them. Not sure what the huge concern is for the out of staters coming to these smaller towns and bringing in revenue. They purchase rooms, food, gas, bait, etc... And contrary to popular belief their impact on local fisheries is minimal as most only make it once or twice a year. We are talking about fish and fishing here and as we all know fish are renewable resources, and fishing is supposed to be about fun. It's not a competition to see who leaves the lake with the most fish; it's about memories, it's about seeing a father take his son for the 1st time, it's about giving the guy next to you a tip on what's been working if he/she is struggling to catch fish. At what time did we lose track of all this and decide that any fish or animal in any state was yours, ours, theirs???? They belong to none and are there for all to enjoy and reap the harvest. Let's try to keep all of this in perspective the next time we are granted the gift of being outdoors. After all, it's fishing right?

The individuals who post negitive comments about Don and other guides/outfitters on here and other fishing sites have apparently never had a face to face conversation or phone conversation with any of them. It really isnt all that difficult to catch decent fish in this area of North Dakota, simply push yourself away from your keyboard, get out on the water or ice and fish! If your techniques aren't working try something different. Hint hint, go smaller and more subtle if you aren't catching fish! I have been fishing in the Lehr area ALOT in the last 6 or 7 years, I have rented homes for my stay in Gackle, Lehr and Wishek. Each and every guide/outfitter/landlord I have rented from were a wealth of knowledge of the area fishery. The local businesses in the Logan and McIntosh counties not only like the business that these fisherman and hunters bring to them, they need it to help their businesses survive. Quite a few of these outdoors minded people have purchased homes in our local communities. These purchases add money to the local tax base, not to mention the money spent on utilities, groceries, gas and other miscellaneous expenses. Non resident and resident license fees help fund the budget of the NDGF, which we all benefit from. If you are a resident or a non resident, I could really care a less. Lets all get along as sportsman and not give the anti's anymore help to divide us.

Last year a fisherman lost a bearing on his truck - he wasn't even staying in one of Don's houses because he was booked up.

Don arranged for a trailer to transport the truck to the garage, and loaned the guy his OWN truck to continue fishing the rest of the weekend.

THAT's the kind of guy Don is.

Give Don a call, 608 697 6910, be respectful and I would bet he will tell you any info you want to know about the area lakes. Even if you are not renting from him...

FISHING REPORT
12/14/14 7:38 PM CST
Ice Depth: 13"
Dec 14th; Yesterday, my wife Vicky and I fished from 2PM to 4:30PM. We caught 20 nice perch. One perch was 13 inches. And one smaller walleye. Vicky lost a big walleye at dark at the hole. The ice is 13 inches and we are driving 4 wheel drive pickups and suburbans on the lake. We have very little snow. Some of my customers did well in the mornings for perch. Beck Lake is the best bite. Good fishing and good luck. Don 608-697-6910 cell

don, do you have an update on ice conditions around Lehr? Heading your way on the 27th and need to know if they are driving with pick up trucks or 4 wheelers only? How has the bite been the last few days?

To all who oppose what Don does... This will be my third year staying with him with no regrets thus far. His set up is a great semi-guided opportunity to be a part of some awesome fishing... How he handles his relations with the locals is his business and the success of his business relies on that... I am sure the grudges if present from the locals stems from him charging for what he does... You are basically paying for him to keep the lights and heat on in the houses and yes I am sure he is making extra besides too. Its a free country folks. He can do what he wants. If you dont like it don't stay with him... Also dont bash him for making a living and creating an oppurtunity for those of us that might not have the time or money to spend chasing our tails for couple days in an area we are unfamiliar with trying to catch some fish.... Plan on taking my kids this spring and I know Don wont let me down in making it an awesome experience for them. Thanks Don and keep up the good work. See ya in a few weeks. And thanks to most of the north dakota residents I have ran into while out there for accepting us outsiders. We have had a few run-ins but hey I have worse than that on my local waters... Cant wait to do some perch jerkin!!

Thanks for the report Don. As always, your knowledge of the area lakes and the fish activity are greatly appreciated.

Marti, Ken, Dave, Mike and I will be making our annual ND Perch Adventure Dec 26-30. See you then.
