The PWT is finishing their ournament on Devils Lake today. Bruce Samson is leading after two days with over 50 pounds. Many fine fish are being caught with most successfully released. The boats are widely dispersed and the pros are being closed mouthed as to exactly where and how they are finding success, but the fish are definitely being found. Steve Haynes (who is staying here at Spirit Water) is doing very well. He may well be rookie of the year and gain a championship finals berth. His wife is coming over from Duluth to share in the festivities. My local buddy Cory Anderson is standing tall as well. Yesterday's highlight gpoe to Alan Freidig my friend and real estate agent from Devil's Lake. He brought to boat a lifetime best Northern Pike measuring just under 50" very likely well over 30 pounds. And he released it to cruise the flats some more. Wow!!!

Bruce Samson held on to win the PWT here on Devils Lake with a 18 fish 84.5# catch. This is Bruce's second win on the lake.

What catches my eye is the vast number of presentations that were successful from 4 to 30 feet deep. Deep trolling, shallow trolling, bottom bouncing leeches, pitching split-shot, jigs and cranks, slip bobbering, vertical jigging, spinners, lindy rigging... all had varying degrees of success. It goes to show you that Devils Lake is a very healthy and productive fishery. One that definitly should be tried by all dedicated fisherpeople.

A 6 fish daily bag of of 2-3 pound fish was an average catch with several over 20 to 30 pounds a day coming in.

Thanks to all those, both pro and amatuer who visited our communities this week.

    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig. 
    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
