OrabsSheldon, Iowa — The Sheldon Orabs would outlast the Sibley-Ocheyedan Generals 12-10 in Sheldon Tuesday night.

The Orabs would come out of the gate swinging putting up 5 runs in the bottom of the 1st highlighted by a bases clearing double by Alexa Vanden Hall and take an early 5-0 lead. The Generals would edge their way back into the game with Jill Berkland scoring on a balk in the 2nd inning, but the Orabs responded with a solo home run by Sydney Iedema to make the score 6-1 after 2 innings of play. Jada Carlson would drive in a run in the 3rd, and Sibley-Ocheyedan would get to within one run in the top of the 4th with aggressive base running along with a 2-run double by Charlie Palsrock. Heading into the bottom of the 5th, the Orabs lead was 6-5. Sheldon would then have 6 players touch home plate after Vanden Hall and Macy Jacobmsa would each drive in a run, along with Van Aalsberg and Nicole Johnson each batting in two runners, making the score 12-5. Sibley-Ocheyedan would tighten things up in the 6th off of the bat of Palsrock as she would hit in two with a double to center, cutting the lead to 5. The Generals would manage to score 3 runs in the top of the 7th, but fall short 12-10.

Nicole Johnson got the win for the Orabs, going 6 2/3 innings giving up 9 earned runs on 13 hits and 6 walks while striking out 9. Haley Wagner got the save with 1/3 IP.

fishingSpirit Lake, Iowa — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issues a weekly fishing report on Thursdays in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend. The weekly fishing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff. For more information contact the Spirit Lake fish Hatchery at 712-336-1840.

NORTHWEST

Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

Water temperatures are in the upper 40’s. A few walleye have been picked up near shore. Anglers have had the most luck fishing the north side of the lake near the Chautauqua Jetty.

Big Spirit Lake

Smallmouth Bass – Good: Good numbers of fish have been caught fishing the shallow rock piles casting jigs tipped with live bait. Look for sunny warm days with calm conditions for the best action. Black Bullhead – Fair: Look for action at the north grade to improve as water temperatures warm. Fish crawlers on the bottom.

East Okoboji Lake

Channel Catfish – Good: Anglers fishing after dark will catch acceptable size and larger fish. Use cut bait on the bottom for this hard fighting game fish. Yellow Bass – Fair: Yellow perch and yellow bass action have been reported from the trestle located on the south end of the lake.

Silver Lake (Dickinson)

Walleye – Good: Shore anglers fishing after dark will have the best action. Cast slowing moving lures such as a modified minnow imitation lure.

West Okoboji Lake

Black Crappie – Fair: Look for action to pick up for this species as the water warms.

Due to the windy weather, fishing activity has been limited at the Iowa Great Lakes. Expect increased activity as warmer temperatures are expected.

NORTHWEST

Beeds Lake

Not much angler activity this week. Channel Catfish – No Report: Channel catfishing is usually good after ice-out on the causeway near the bridges. Use cut bait or worms.

Lake Smith

Not much angler activity this week. Channel Catfish – No Report: Fish in the shallower water or bays on the warmer days or on the windward shorelines where bait is pushed.

Clear Lake

Water temperature is around 44 degrees. Walleye – Good: Shore fisherman near the Ventura grade have caught some walleyes during the day and at dark on minnows and twisters. Channel Catfish – Good: Catfish action has been good this past week. Use cut bait, worms or minnows near inlets and windblown shorelines in the early season. The water is still very clear in the shallows, so fish a little deeper on calm days. Bluegill – Fair: A few bluegills have been caught in the canals. Fish with small ice jigs under a bobber or add a split shot or two and vertical jig near structure. Muskellunge – Fair: Target shallow flats along the shoreline on the east end of the lake. Use a jig and a minnow or a slow moving artificial. Walleye anglers have caught a few near the outlet on the east end and also by the Marsh inlet by the Ventura grade. Black Crappie – Good: Crappies have been caught in the canals. Use small ice jigs under a bobber or add a split shot or two and vertical jig near structure. Check out the edges or inside the rushes around the lake as crappies will likely be found near them as well. Yellow Bass – Fair: Yellow bass have been caught in low numbers off the Grade. Farmer’s beach and Baptist camp shorelines can be good spots in the early season.

Crystal Lake

The fish cleaning station, boat launch dock, and the courtesy dock are in at Crystal Lake.

Blue Pit

Rainbow Trout – No Report: Trout stocked in winter should still be able to be caught throughout spring. Try using a quick searching lure like an inline spinner.

Bluebill Lake

The access gates to the boat ramp are now open and the courtesy dock has been installed. Minimal fishing activity has been observed to date. There is a 15 inch minimum length limit on largemouth bass.
