I was thinking of planning a trip to Devils Lake this summer. Anybody have any tips or particular time to go for walleyes?

Walleye
We were up to DL last year in late June. Hit some rough weather lightning and strong SE winds made it rough on the main bays. We moved to Pelican on the other side of 19 and did good on 6-7 pound fish close to shore in about 10 ft over weeds.

I said it before and I'll say it again... the best time to fish is when you can fish. wink.gif Devils Lake is good all year long sometimes it is fantastic, 50-100 catch walleye days can happen. The season never ends. We buy leeches by the pound and crawlers by the flat. Do you want to cast, pull cranks, vertical jig, slipbobber...

There are no slots on DL. All we ask is that you practice CPR on anything 18 plus. Believe me when they get over 18 inches, the table quality does go down some. I personally like to eat 14 inchers.

We consider fish 15-18 inches "eaters" or "keepers" here. That is differnet from a lot of other lakes where 13-15 are the "eaters" or "keepers". Fish in the 1.5 to 2# range are most common and should make up the bulk of a days catch. Mix in several 20 - 24 inchers and you have a typical summers day catch. I've had many, many days when my top 5 walleyes are 24 inches. If release them you can catch em day after day and not burn a spot.

Eight pound northerns are a dime a dozen. Just pull cranks in 12 foot water of and you'll find some. Keep em all!!!

I'll have the Warrior with black trim and a golden retriever. Wave when you go by.

Hey Kevin,
I would bring my Golden Retriever but I am afraid he would swamp my small Lund boat. He weighs in at a slim 110 lbs.
I can't wait for some Channel A action!

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
