Does anyone have any info or tips on East Bay.  I will be staying at Camp Grafton this weekend with my son and elderly uncle so don't want to go to far from home.  I haven't fished East Bay since winter so any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Went out on Saturday. Crappy weather.  Weatherman lied about no rain in the AM, but made up for it when the rain didn't come in till after 5 PM. Was in a smaller boat and with the wind, we had to keep to the N edge.  Caught a 2 man limit of eaters, with nothing on the large size.  Ended up drift fishing on a point staying in 14-20 ft.

 Wife and I spent the last couple days exploring Main bay , An area that we haven't fished in many years.  The fishing wasn't as good as I thought  it would be.  Slip bobbers with a leech in 14' of green water caught more and bigger fish than trolling spinners in clear water at all depths.  There was an algae bloom going on and the wind pushed it south so we mostly fished the north end in clear water and trolled spinners but didn't do so hot.  Picked up scattered walleyes here and there in less than 20' and lots of snags.   Moved out to 30' and caught more fish but every single one was small.  Caught two 3/4 pound perch on spinners in 30'.  Did see some boats fishing by the bridge but tried finding my own honey hole.  What's plan B ?

Pulling spinners and slow death rigs east of the Grahams Island road in 13-16 ft of water.  Used both crawlers and leeches.  We used only half of the larger crawlers or else we got bitten off short of the hook.  1.1 mph.  Fire tiger spinner with leech caught a lot of small fish but we caught fish on red too.  Had to weed through a lot of smalleyes to get our limit but we limited in just a tad over 2 hours with a bonus perch.

I'm going up to devils lake Saturday and Sunday to shore fish with some buddies. Where would be a good spot to catch some fish and what should we be using?

Spent the last two weekends up to the big lake.  Hit pelly the first weekend and main lake, east bay, etc etc.   Bottom line those same 13 and under fish have not grown and you can catch them just about anywhere any depth.  We pulled in some 19s -- nothing greater than that.  We pulled spinners.   I will say last weekend the may fly (or whatever fly they have) hatch was on the east side.  Bite was affected -- however not that much -- you know those little gorgers they bite when they full.   Colors didn't matter -- but they did take a crawler better than gulp or leaches.  So if you want numbers and more numbers of 13 inch fish --- Devils lake is hot --- you have to sort through and you can catch some eaters.

Saturday the 5th, when it was hot, it took all day for 2 of us to catch our limit of nice eaters.  10-12 ft of water.  We fished New Mill, the old Grahams Island road, and Six Mile on the west side just south of the old road bed along the weeds.  Slow death rig did the best that day.   Tuesday evening we drifted from the Grahams Island road toward Doc Hagens pulling spinners and slow death rigs and had one of the best fishing days in a long time.  We caught fish on leeches, crawlers, and plastic worms. I think that night we could have hooked up some old shoe leather and caught fish.  Gold blades did the best.  Last night we went out and went to the same spot and rigged the same way.  Pulled our rigs instead of drifting because it started out calm.  Bright green worked a little better, but the bite was not nearly the same.  Lots of smalleyes and lots of shredded crawlers.  We worked anywhere from 9 to 14 feet.  Didn't keep limits but had a nice batch of eaters.

Good luck and have fun!

Fished Black Tiger Bay yesterday and used the launch off Hwy 20.  Buddy and I caught a 2-man limit of nice walleyes. Fish were from 14-18 inches.  Fish were caught using clown-colored #5 Shad Rap or bottom bouncing with silver or gold spinners tipped with a leech.  Fish were caught in 10-12 ft water along the weed edge.  Beautiful day to be on the water.

First time on DL in 3 years, wish it wasn't so darn far. Tried pulling cranks early in 8 ft or so, picked up 1 nice walleye and a few pike. Switched to spinners in 13 ft with crawlers and soon figured we should have started that earlier and brought more crawlers. Green blades and short (2 ft) snells were the ticket. Caught 25 or so, kept 12 over 16, biggest was 19, before running out of crawlers and the sun came out. Action was over. Had  a great time, can't wait to come back.

I was out at Devils Lake Thursday -Saturday. 30mph Wind was a problem on Thursday so the waves kept us confined to some pretty small areas where fishing was slow unless you are targeting northern.

Picked up our limit on Friday with slip bobbers in 6-9ft of water in various bays and flooded timber. There are plenty of Northerns to be found in the shallows to steal your tackle while you are waiting on the eyes. 

Saturday we found our limit of walleye stacked in 28ft of water. We pulled most of those with spinners, but jigging and slip bobbers worked as well. All fish were nice 16-18". Every pass we were pulling out 1-2 walleyes. That is the fishing that I have been waiting for. I checked other areas of deeper water and only saw them in one spot.

Saturday turned out to be a great day on the water. Flat calm but the fish didn't seem to mind. Did very well with a leech under a slip bobber in 4-7fow on the east side of the lake. Keeping the leech well off the bottom seemed to be the ticket. If we were in 7fow we were a good 3ft off the bottom. Actually had a few fish swirl at the surface right before they took the leech so I don't think you can fish too shallow right now. Took about 3.5 hrs to pull a 2 man limit so it wasn't fast and furious but the fish we caught were all real nice 17-22 inchers. Water temp where we were fishing was about 61. Good luck to those that get out this week.
