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.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
