It is here. The season hunters have all been waiting for, “Fall.” It arrived September 22nd, and one of the first signs is the turning of the sumac. Fishing is really picking up now and will be good through October, if you can put up with the cool to cold weather and the windy conditions that go with it. I have one friend that fished South Dakota and had outstanding catches of walleye and perch.
We who live in the northern hemisphere have probably all noticed longer days and shorter nights in the summer and the opposite in winter. This phenomenon occurs because the Earth’s axis is not straight up and down at a 90 degree angle, but it is instead tilted a bit.
We needed one more fishing trip up to Lake Francis Case before calling it quits, and this day was day two. The month of June was a beautiful month and the severe heat was coming that we all experience during July and up into August. The fish keep feeding, it is just that they go deep and seem to be more spread out. Anyway this is the feeling of the guide we have fished with for several years. He was born, raised, and worked in the area all his life. He is no stranger to Lake Francis Case.
This was day one of the trip. Continue reading
My wife said she would make the trip with me to Platte, SD to fish on Lake Francis Case. The lake is part of the Missouri River system of dams and lakes that provide some of the finest walleye fishing in America. Her only requirement is for good weather and she will even tolerate windy days. Cold and wet is a no go situation.
Just as you enter the town of Platte, you are greeted with this antique sign in outstanding condition. Plus, there is the original gas station. I showed that pic to some friends and they said the sign if in good condition is worth some change.
The lodge put us up at the new pheasant lodge they had just purchased. Pam had never seen this before and was astounded this first class hunting lodge was on the prairie of South Dakota and no one knew about it. Great rooms and we had the entire run of the lodge. There was another couple there and we visited with them about the fantastic setting of the lodge. We did supply our own meals, and our local grocery store deli has pre made meals that supplied us with all we needed. A micro wave was available so we are set with meals.Continue reading
