Devil's Lake ?

4 posts in this topic

What can I expect during mid-March on a trip to Devil's Lake?

We'll be armed with tip ups and smelt and some jiggin rods. Is there much size to the pike in Devil's Lake? Never been there so we are excited to learn!

You can exspect good action in March, that is when I usually go out there for the best bite of the year. Size of DL northerns is pretty consistent 5-8lb range usually. One good tip is fish shallower than you usually would else were, not sure why but Northern in DL are usually pretty shallow

Expect to be overwhelmed by the vastness of the lake. I strongly recommend stopping at Ed's Bait Shop (or any of the other local bait shops) to get pointed in the right direction if you don't already have a game plan.

Pike on DL...no problem.

Set tip ups if you like and run the flag drill...but if you really want Smack'n Action than rip jig with Salmo Zippers and you will have so many pike flopping on the ice it will scare ya. They tear them Zippers up!!

Silver Blue, FireTiger, Real Roach, and the Gold Orange Zippers or Chubbys are Pike Candy.

Rip'n Zippers are real Hog Callers up there, most anywhere pike roam really. You get your share of dandy sumo walleye too when working Zippers and #6 Salmo Chubbys.

I highly recommend a Tiger Wire leader, about 16" long, a longer rod like the Jason Mitchell Elite Series 36MH Mackinaw bait casing rod or the new 38 inch spinning rod.....or.... a lot of extra Zippers and Chubbys.

Jason Mitchell Elite Series Rods and Combo's.

RIP..RIP..RIP....*THUD*...WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
