Devils Lake (Overview)
Can anyone help a Dad take his son fishing? I would like to take my young sons fisahing for walleye and we are looking for a nice place we can shore fish from and be able to land some walleyes. Any help would be much appreciated.
Fished Channel A North of Devils Lake saturday evening, we caught 10 pike, with the biggest being 42"... Was a good outting... Workign Plastics allong the current edge.
Fished Devils Lake from shore Friday the 20th, did pretty well, had to find wind blown shorlines and water that was not churned up. got 20+ walleyes using platics, between 15 and 24 inches. Also caught 15 pike, brought 4 home for the smoker.
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.
Fished sw side in about 11 ft of water, had one bite the whole time. Marked a few but they would not bite. About 20 inches of ice but the ice is getting worse in spots. This was on lake Addie, no tag for it
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.
17 feet. 3 walleyes last night. Northern part of east bay. Marked fish all evening but tough to get them to bite. Perch jigging rap and orange buckshot got them.
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...
