Does anyone fish for whitebass from shore in Devils lake and know when they will start to bite like crazy? I have never fish during May/June time to see if they bite during this time of the year. When do the whitebass spawn in Devils lake? Thanks!

Any new whitebass fishing actions from shore? I want to book a fishing trip to Devils Lake and don't know when the WB will start biting from shore. I assume the water temp needs to be warm in order for WB to start hitting from shore line. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

MidCoast said in his post above that his buddy came back from shorefishing with their limit, so I'd say they've been biting already.

I will answer your question. White Bass spawn is pretty much over or in its last stages. 6 Mile Bay area, Black Tiger Bay area were producing the most. Walleyes were mixed in too. Northerns are plenty as usual also. Fathead minnows and bright colored jigs works.

The late ice out and cold temps held the spawning later than usual this year. There is no exact location on keying in on the fish. You will have to move about to find them in the areas. Sometimes waiting out the bite in a certain area or choosing to fish at different times of the day are important. Morning and evening hours are best. Light wind blown shorelines are key to finding fish.

Good luck and happy fishing.

went out last weekend and caught white bass every cast for over an hour from a boat. Went out the next day into black tiger bay and caught many from shore. Look for the people fishing from shore and you will find the fish.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
