What are the best places to fish right now for walleye and northern. Depth of water would be helpful
Devils Lake (Overview)
Hit Devils lake the other day, had a south, south east wind. Went out of 6 mile and ran down to the Grahms Island road. Drifted spinners, jigs, and puppet minnow. Caught 1 walleyes and a hadn full of small white bass. Moved up the to Pillers, same presentations, got a hand full of eater walleyes and even more white bass. Fish seemed to be in a negitive mood, puppet minnow was the most effective presentation for walleyes, white bass crushed the spinner and jig.
17 to 22'
Spinners, with crawler.
North 6 mile
Fished out of Grahams Island on Saturday with a few freinds. We found fish in 15-31 FOW drifting/trolling sinners. Caught a few ripping puppets as well. Lots of undersize fish to pick through to get our limits. Bonus for the day was a pair of dandy jumbo perch.
Silver seemed to be the color, minnow and crawlers worked equaly as wel..
Fished East Bay using spinners and single hooks with crawlers. Caught some nice walleye.
Fished Six Mile using single hooks/bottom bouncers with crawlers and leeches.
Sunday we drifted Lindy rigs with leeches in 6 Mile Bay. 14 to 16 feet was the best depth to target. Caught fish all day. There wasn't a hot color as they were biting just about anything we put down. Great day to be on the lake.
Pulled blades along the old shore lines in east bay, crawlers worked best with bottom bouncer!
Went out to Devils Lake last Thursday. Deep blue skies and a bit on the windy side.
Rented a boat from Sprirt Lake Casino.
Fishing the shallow inlets yielded two pike. One 21" on a spoon and a 31" on a Rapala.
Then fished the bridge channels using bottom bouncers and leeches leading to 2 walleye and a sauger.
Couldn't get anything going fishing a ton of submerged structures. It was crazy.
Overall a slow day but better than being in at the office!
Fishing was slow on saturday, the wind beat us up a little bit and we had trouble finding Walleye that were bigger than 14". Best luck came out of Howards Bay.
