Took a trip to North Dakota to visit family a couple of weeks ago. Carried my kayak intending to fish but much of the time I was there the wind was blowing 20 - 30 mph from the west with 40 and 50 mile gusts so I stayed off the water. One of the last days of my trip, the cold front finally arrived and though it was a blue bird sky and 48 degrees, I hit the water. This particular lake has bream, yellow perch, crappie, SMB, LMB, walleye and northern pike, so I expected to catch something. Wish I could show some fish pictures but I only had 3 hits in 6 hours on the water and none were even partially hooked. I did manage to disturb a small flock of Freshwater Pelicans and capture their flight on film. [video=youtube_share;NFkqBr-LECQ]http://youtu.be/NFkqBr-LECQ[/video]
These birds were at least 4 ft long with 6 or 7 ft wing spans.


As a side note, you know you're in North Dakota when the local bar has Sauerkraut Pizza on the menu

Those are the smaller of the two types of freshwater pelicans found in the Dakotas. The other has 9 ft wing span. When you see either of them in a pothole, you know there are fish there too...

Nice! I hear lots of good things about the Dakotas in regards to scenery and nature. I look forward to checking it out sometime.
