Your Devils Lake Fishing Report

Well tried anything and everything this past weekend and failed each time to catch a walleye. Fished hard all three days and the best thing that I could come up with is a bunch of northerns. I have a feeling that with the high winds last week it chased the fish to deeper water where they suspended. I tried shallow and I tried deep, shallow water produced northerns and deep water marked a lot of suspended fish that wanted nothing to do with me. Hopefully with this nice weather this week and calm conditions the fish will turn on this coming weekend. All a guy can do is try!
I actually did catch a couple small eyes fishing from the dock on Sat night so hopefully that is a sign that better things are to come this weekend.

Good Luck

Hello,
With the warm weather this past week the fishing did get considerably better. Myself and two others fished Creel Bay this past weekend in the trees. We went through a pound of leeches and I would guess that we caught and released about 50 walleyes except for a few that we kept for a fish fry. The size was nothing to brag about but at least we were catching fish. Also were getting into the white bass at the north end of Creel. A side note, on Sat tried fishing in the flats by Howards ranch but was unable to find any active fish. Kevin how did you do this weekend in that area (the flats), it would be nice to hear how everyone else did as well.
Have a good week!

Fished Black Tiger Bay Saturday afternoon until about 7:00. The action was decent considering how miserable the wind was. We caught 14 and brought home 9 between the 2 of us. I think it is going to get better here in the next couple weeks. Did not see any white bass.

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up.
