My son & I fished 6/19 thru 6/21. The fishing was great, nothing big but lots of action. We fished out of Grahams Island and went west from there. We spent 5 to 6 hrs a day fishing and averaged 80 to 100 walleyes a day. Most fish were 13 to 15" with a few 17" mixed in. Had to sort thru a lot of fish to keep decent eaters. The first day we used slip bobbers on the humps in 14' to 21' of water using leeches. The second and third day we mostly pulled spinners with leeches and crawlers in 14' to 18' of water and caught a little larger average size.
Devils Lake (Overview)
Fish again this weekend on the west end of the lake and never had a problem getting the fish to bite. Had our limit both day in under two hours. Talked to some others who said they struggled.
We fished six mile bay from 10:14 a.m. to 5:15 a.m. on 6/4/15. Tried both deep water and shallow bays from the Hwy 2 bridge to all the way to the Hwy 19 bridge.
From when we went there two weekends ago, the Pelican Lake landing was like a foot deep, no one was putting in there. We went to Graham's island and drove up to Pelican. Did very well pitching cranks.
Sorry not a report, just planning a trip to fish Pelican Lake this weekend and curious to where a guy can put his boat in? I seen a topic a few weeks ago on it and can no longer find it. I've fished Devils Lake for years now and would like to try some new parts of the lake, thanks!
Fish are biting on west end of lake. Saturday we had our 25 eyes in two hours. Sunday was three of us had our limit in hour and half. Monday had our fifteen in hour ten minutes. Fished 3 to 9 fow. Pitched cranks and slip bobbered.
I'm assuming DL fishing must be VERY slow right now. No one, including the bait shops, are taking the time to post fishing reports. Even the DL tourism site's last post was on April 30th !- not a good enticement to come join in the fun?
Heading to Devils Lake with the wife this weekend and we're bringing the fishing poles to shore fish Friday evening. Looking to catch anything with fins. I use to fish off the bottom with a leech for walleye but wondering if it is to early for that. Any information on what bait, jigs, plastics, ect. to use would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Just wondering if walleyes are biting up shallow yet? Looking at going up for this weekend, had fun a couple years ago in May up there and wanted to give it a go. Not looking for anything specific just haven't heard much yet this year. Thanks!
Anyone still fishing on the ice out there or that game over?
