what are they biting on?

Recommended Posts

Heading to Devil's lake this Friday and fishing through the weekend. I've fished perch on Winnie many times and just wondering if they bite on minnows and small jigs or is there some special formula to catching fish on D.L. Any info on this would be most greatfull.

I assume you are talking about perch. We use spikes. They look somewhat like shrimp when on the hook.

The perch are 32 to 45 foot deep and probably never seen a fathead minnow. Fatheads are to active anyway. The base forage is shrimp. The perch do not have to fight for food.

Sometimes a perch eye will do the trick.

You cannot bring bait into the state so get it at a local bait shop in Devils Lake.

They are smaller than waxworms. They are some kinda larvae. Get them here at any bait shop.

Start by using 2 to 3 on a hook.

Keep them cold to stop them from going into a pupae. Don't let them freeze, but keep them refrigerated over night

Thanks Kevin for all the info. I read on one of your earlier reports you drive a black dodge four door with perch on the license plates, I'll keep a eye out for you. Thanks again.

I think spikes are fly larvae whereas wax worms are bee larvae. I personnally like to use spikes especially when the bite is lite. Spike tend to be tougher and stay hooked better and can be dropped down the hole again fast. My own experience with wax worms is the fall off easy and need to be rebaited almost every time you put the line down. Good luck.
