Lake Oahe Walleye's

Last June we took a trip to Lake Oahe in South Dakota in hope of catching some of the trophy walleye’s there. We stayed at South Whitlock’s Resort , http://www.southwhitlock.com/. We fished in Whitlock’s Bay when the wind was blowing because it is a little better protected and moved out onto the main lake when the wind allowed. We caught the majority of our fish trolling Shad Raps in 15-18 ft. of water. Trolling spinners with nightcrawlers was also effective at times. Any point either north or south of the Highway 212 bridge was good. One day we trolled back and forth under the 212 bridge with Shad Raps and caught a walleye nearly everytime we went past the bridge supports. We took the boat south to the dam one day to try for Salmon and did OK until the thunderstorms hit. We talked to one group that had come from Colorado to fish for Salmon and they had filled out each day trolling by the dam.
