Fishing Devils Lake in October???

6 posts in this topic

My bro and I are planning a duck hunting trip to ND for the non-resident opener. We are planning on getting our limit early enough in the day that we will have time to do some fishing. We have never fished devils lake before and are wondering what to expect. Will the landings be busy? Is any of the water off limits due to the indian reservation? What is the best tactic for walleyes that time of year? It would be nice to find a landing on the SE side of the lake. Do we need to worry about busting our boat prop with all the stumps and what not? Sorry for all the questions but I am just trying to figure a few things out so we have a basic idea of what we are doing. Thanks in advance!!!!

As for october fishing usally its the bridges (current area), or shallow areas right next to the DEEPEST part of the area of lake your fishing. Your looking for a landing on the SE side well thats going to be EastBay campground or Black Tiger bay landing..I suggest east bay. If your planning on just half the day there I would launch from the campground and drive to the woods rutten road bridge and fish the north west side of it. You cannot go wrong with green jigs and half a crawler threaded on it in Oct. Or a lindy rig with a crawler.

Dont worry about stumps just stay out from the shore atleast 200 feet, but not a bad idea to bring an extra shear pin with.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
