I would like the same information.

It would be nice to have some good sunfish and crappie fishing "so close" to Grand Forks, ND.

Also, what type of bait or rigs to you use when fishing the sunken road that used to run from Minnewaukan.

i know this is not about devils lake but you said you are looking for good sunny and crappie fishing so close to GF.
well we have had pretty good luck so far this year fishing maple lake. it is in MN so you would need a MN licence to fish there legally. Maple is just off of US 2 in Mentor.
most of the time a slip bobber is used but some use beetlespins with luck as well. have not quite got the colors thing worked out as it weems to change constantly.

so back to ND fishing

since i figured i fish the red for cats and i want to hit Devils lake i got a non resident ND license.
so now i am looking for some good spots in ND for fishing. not really picky about the kind as i am a catch and release fisher. though i might actually keep some this year as i have a fillet knife now.
have heard talk about sakakawea but that is one heck of a drive.
any other places?

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
