Guided Bass Fishing

South Dakota Outfitters Unlimited Bass fishing trips can be custom designed to fulfill your desires. If you are looking for a fight, Lake Francis Case above the Fort Randall Dam is known to be one of the best areas for producing trophy Smallmouth Bass fishing in the central United States.

We have a large population of Walleyes and Smallmouth bass in the 1-4 lb range, with the chance of larger fish during the peak of the season.

What to Expect

Fishing in South Dakota is the perfect getaway, and we are not as far away as you might think. It is not uncommon to have a 50+ catch day from early March to June.  Our team provides the very best fishing boats on the market. We take great pride in satisfying customers. We will do everything in our power to make sure you have an enjoyable and memorable vacation.

We fish woods and shallows in the early spring using spinners, crank bait, and plastic grubs.  In June, we start fishing the weed beds and other structures using plastic worms, jigs, and crank bait.

Peak Season for Bass Fishing on Lake Francis Case: Smallmouth Bass: April-June, September-November
Large Mouth Bass: April-October

What our Guests are Saying

Above and beyond what I expected. I've hunted and fished with numerous outfitters and this was beyond the most impressive. The accommodations are top notch. Comfortable rooms, outstanding food, and lodge is something everyone needs to see. The guides and properties that SDOU have are some of the finest in South Dakota. We hunted ducks and pheasants for 3 days. We experienced some of the finest hunting to date. I can't say enough about Joel's enthusiasm and passion for the sport. It also comes through from his guides as well. We booked through the Great Outdoor Show in Harrisburg. From the time we booked in February Joel was always available to answer all questions. This is a family owned business with Joel's and Amanda's presence daily at the lodge. The staff that prepared the food and does the housekeeping were pleasant and professional. If anyone is looking for an outfitter for South Dakota hunting and fishing look no further than South Dakota Outfitters Unlimited. We are already planning our spring fishing trip
