Fished Devils Sunday evenign the 1st of May,  Fish a rock shoreline that was wind was blowing into from the south west.  Caught a handful of eater walleys and just over a dozen Pike.  Fish were most active on Plastics being fish slow and spoons.  Biggest fish were a 17" walleye and 3ft pike.   Key Colors were Firecracker and Lime Green.

Fished Creel Saturday 27 February 2016. The bite was great in the morning till about 8 am in 14-17FOW, we bucketed a few walleyes and perch each. At 9am, we followed the fish out to deeper flats and fished 30-38 FOW, with most fish coming in 34ft. Fish were very active, and the dead stick with a plain hook and minnow and active jigging with a slender spoon and minnow head both produced well. We actually got down to our T-shirts with the sun and 42 degree temps.

I fished Devils lake with my neighbor yesterday 24 February.  We stuck to Creel Bay all day.  Found Walleyes and Perch in 17fow in early mornind fron 430-630 in the evening.  Got into perch mid day on a 25-30 drop off, but all were 8 inch size range, but it broke up the lul of the day.  Also got 2 nice 5lb pike as a bonus.   Final number of fish taken home was 5 walleyes, 2 pike, and 12 perch, released about 3 times that number of fish.

Dead stick next to a jig was key, mid day fish took agressive jigging to attract.


Devils lake fishing report.

Fishing has been slow for me by the casino, never got skunked but nothing but small walleyes and a few pike here and there. Had good luck a few nights ago in creel bay in 25-30 ft. But went the next 2 nights with little to no luck..bites have been light. All fishing I did was between 3pm to 630 pm...

Devils Lake Perch Patrol

Quick question for all who fish devils lake on a regular basis.  If I were to hire a guided trip through perch patrol for the simple reason I'd like to get my father and grandfather on some fish since my grandfather is getting old and might be his last time ice fishing with me... is it better to fish with them early ice, mid winter or late ice.  Keep in mind that my grandfather will not walk out on anything under a foot so i can't do like first ice.  Not looking for a spot, just looking for advice as a whole.  Thanks

Fishing continues

Even though there have been very few reports posted to this page in quite some time, there are still some folks fishing Devils Lake.  I was out Sunday 10-11-15 in the morning for a few hours and got my limit of eyes.  I was well off the lake before the wind picked up.  I was fishing in about 16-18 pulling crawlers on one rig and gulp minnow on another.  Got my five in a little over 3 hours.  The last two were a double which is fun and frustrating when you are out alone.  Still using hammered gold.

Happy fishing!

7-3 to 7-4 2015

On Friday the 3rd we started up in the New Mil area with slip bobbers and leeches, in water ranging from 9-14 feet.  We ended up with a limit of fish in the 15-17" range with 1 C&R 25" Walleye.

On Saturday the 4th of July we changed it up and went into Pelican where we pulled spinners along a road at roughly 10 feet of water.  We fished for 2 hours and had our 3 man limit of 18-22" fish.

We attempted to troll and pitch cranks but that yielded northern after northern, once we slowed the presentation down and switched to live bait the Walleyes bit fast.
