If it's cold, you know, near-zero? Well, fishing is great in South Dakota!

Middle of July, in the nineties and hot? No problem, the fishing is still great in South Dakota!

One of the reasons is the many lakes we have here in the Sunshine State. Oh, we're not the 10,000 Lakes place. Nope. That goes to our neighbor. But we do have some dandies!

I'm not going to name them all, but what I'm wondering is...

How many of the ten biggest lakes in South Dakota can you name? And for that matter, how many of them have you dropped a line into, maybe on a hot summer afternoon or through the ice on a cold February day?

Now, I'd think most would know the biggest of the big. That would be Lake Oahe. I'd bet even the non-fishing folks might know that. But what about the others in the biggest Top Ten.

Are you Sharpe enough to name them all? Can you Traverse and identify the entire list? Or would you have to admit Bitter defeat?

World Atlas lists the Top Ten Largest Lakes in South Dakota here and best of luck pulling in the big one!
