Hiring a Guide

Recommended Posts

Guest

One thing a person must insist when hiring a guide here is that they stay with you and help you fish. If you are marking fish a good guide will talk you through it. If you are not marking fish then it is OK for them to leave you for a short while so they can hunt them down.

If they can't supply you with an FL-18 per each shelter don't book em.

When booking a trip get it in writing what you will be getting. Copy their web page, keep their correspondance and above all ask what you are getting.

There is no guarentee that you will catch fish, it does happen. Even on the toughest day someone will catch something somewhere on the lake. Have you seen the daily weigh ins for the top circuits? Not everybody catches fish every day. Also some people can't catch fish except on the days when the fish are committing suicide.

This lake is loaded to the gills with perch. It also is loaded to the gills with forage.

Devils Lake is not "your" lake. It is very different from what most people are accustomed to. The prey overwhelms the predator. If you insist on using tactics that are popular on minnow based lakes you will not catch perch here.

Kevin; I have never fished Devils lake, but I'am going to give it a shot, I'll be heading that way March 6,for about 4days. Any information would be helpful, I hope to fish walleyes, early morning and northerns during day and would love to catch some of those football size perch. Also what is the going price for a guide for a day. thanks Gar

It is my opinion that nobody needs a guide. First you have to be mobile. If you don't catch fish move, it is just that simple. And for the bait, basically find a school of hungry perch and almost anything will work.

On the guide thing,if you do the math you will clearly see that the package these guides setup for you is a far better deal than if you do your own thing. Most of the time they put you on fish,some get you discounts on rooms at casino,ect. All you have to do is jump in the wifes car and head out. When you get there,your treated like your the king again,just like home grin.gif

If this is your first trip I would hire a reputable guide. I fished Devils Lake in January. I was there for 11 days and didn`t have a guide. I caught fish but at the end of the day the guy`s with guides had alot more fish. The lake is HUGE, if you don`t have the time like I did hire a guide. Good Luck Fish On

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
