Ice fishing Devils Lake

Recommended Posts

Anyone have info on a place to stay? When would be the best time to come up this winter? Are there rental sleeper houses on the lake? Any and all info would be great, as a buddie and myself are thinking of making a trip this winter.
Thanks

Check with Eds bait shop, Woodland resort, or if you feel lucky, the Spirit Lake Casino.

It will be a while until we get ice here. Water temp was around 40 last weekend. Daytime highs in the 60's this week won't help. The question is "Do we really want ice?" Of course we do not just today, winters up here are long enough.

Just got back from fishing, water temp 38-40 degrees. Caught about 20 eyes. Biggest 22 inches, half were sub 14". Jigs, rigs and minnows 18-23 feet on secondary flat on island topping out at 12 feet in 40 foot water.

I believe Kevin can also help hook you up with lodging to suit your preferences...from budget to fancy. I'm not sure, but I also think he handles those who would like to take the Amtrak out to Devils Lake.

I've been out with Kevin & Leonard Ice Fishing. We had a blast.

fishtrap I have places on the lake Mike Jelle Sportsman Paradise Adventures [email protected] I would come when you feel it is best for you, expect to work for the fish. The traditional best times are Mid February till ice out and early ice which is rite now. One of my guides was out yesterday and did very well. Fished slow plain chartrues hook with a small minnow seemed the best. Sleeper houses aren't poular here because the night bite is not done much. Plus we move alot to stay on the fish so we like canvas houses better for mobility. We have sleepers however if your heart is set on one. I like to take a shower myself after fishing a weekend.

What are the ice conditions like on Devils lake this week & weekend?

I have heard from sources that the ice is 4-6" on the flats, is this true?

Word is Devils lake and the area sloughs with perch & pike are on the chew?

Any angler reports would be appreciated.

Thanks

We're walking on 6-8" ice on the Minnewaukan Flats. Some northerns and walleyes. Best walleye bite is in the evening.

This will be the first weekend of substantial activity. Time to get going!

Cavanugh Lake is producing perch.

Very few reports.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
