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
