  1. i say open water is going to be late this year middle to end of april over 40 inches of ice and it was still making ice this weekend -6
  2. the later it gets fish are going to start going shallow. a buddy of mine picked up a lot of nice perch fishing shallow for eyes. he had to go really shallow to catch eyes.
  3. live bait

    getting minnows has been a problem for the last 5 weeks. slews froze to the bottom in a lot of places and minnow trappers couldn't get traps in. hit and miss which bait shops have them
  4. it is going to make it a pain, I am sick and tired of below zero temps -29 this morning. the bite has been pretty steady all winter. there seems to be a lack of fresh water shrimp
  5. I have been going shallow for eyes early and late 14 to 18 feet over structure, perch anywhere from 28 to 40 I drill till I find a couple feet of fish on my vex then get them to bite if they leave sometimes a move of 20 feet can get you back on top of them.
  6. Fish House Regs

    pretty sure it is unoccupied house have to be removed each night.
  7. the snow is set up pretty good pickups are driving pretty much anywhere just have to watch the drifts. fish are still hitting pretty good.
  8. i was out this weekend fishing was hit and miss. woodlands has plowed roads all the way to doc hagens, snow is getting deep and hard if the weather ever stabalizes the fishing should be great.
  9. Ice on Devils Lake?

    they used to sell the maps you are talking about around devils lake but i havent seen them in a few years. I think petes bait in devils lake has crude maps I picked up a map from lake master off there web site. It has all the hot spots there chips have on them. On devils lake alot of the structcure is the old shoreline that is under water
  10. maybe try looking on the ice on devils lake thread
  11. Ice on Devils Lake?

    bring wheelers it was snowing when i left but i heard they didnt get more than a few inches of light fluffy snow. been cold this week so ice should be alot better.
  12. Ice on Devils Lake?

    ice is getting thicker up to 8 inches in places close to shore. was snowing when i left fish were biteing pretty good
  13. Ice on Devils Lake?

    Fished 6 mile bay south of the hwy19 bridge Ice wasnt great. Some nice hard blue ice but alot of white and broken refroze ice. Waterfowl have open spots on the edges and in the middle. Ice out to 50 yards wat 5 to 7 inches then it went to 4. been raining all morning today and didnt freeze last night. The fish were biteing 12 to 14 feet of water. Only caught eyes. If we get some more cold weather it should be good. I did see alot of people on the east side of 6 mile bay but i dont know what the ice was like. be careful and bring ice cleats.

    id say it is over unless you have a argo
