The local word is there aren't very many people out fishing, for whatever reason.

They are having an ice fishing tourney the last week of January. Seemed like a good time to go, so the wife and I are headed up then. We were gonna fish anyways so why not get a shot at a prize.

It is mostly weather related they should start popping up out there in the next week

That's what it sounded like to me as well -- cold enough people are waiting to drive, plus access problems. Some people are saying those going out are doing well, but nobody I talked to knew anything specific.

What I do know for sure is there is no shortage of tight lips up there, if not with fish then with fishermen.

Did you get a ticket for the derby they always used to sell out.

I'm pretty sure they are already sold out. We have 4 tickets and are looking for 4 more.

I got a 3 day guided ice fishing package for Christmas and am looking for the best time of the winter to go. I hear a lot of good things about Devils Lake. What can I expect?

    •   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.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
