I feel still to some degree like N.D. is home. Lived there from 1972 to 1988 and from 1991 to 2001. Fished the Red a lot, Devils Lake a good bit, Laretta a fair amount after it got turned from a slough into a lake.

The challenge for you, as I see it, is turning this board into more than simply Devils Lake, which draws far more anglers, especially in winter, than any other body of N.D. water.

Although, judging from the few Devils Lake posts, you may not have much of a challenge after all.

By the way, ever notice how many Wisconsin license plates you see plowing around the ice on Devils Lake? What is it about D.L. that brings in the cheeseheads?

Just let us know when they are fishing Devils Lake and Loretta and we will all be happy. I never want to be the first on the ice but surely don't want to be the last!
Thinking Maple Lake by Mentor might be my first spot out.

I am more prone to hang tight to rivers, even in the winter, but eventually I do wonder on the big ice.

So far I have not got any word of any safe or even close to safe ice in the region. Warm weather is on the way again for a few days so that will slow that down too.

It is the in-between time now, kinda frustrating Eh.

Just be darn cautious folks, no need to rush anything, safe is better then wet or worse.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
