Devils Lake Ice Reports

Recommended Posts

So if we went up on friday or sat. do you think we could get on the lake? Wifes wondering why I've been such a bear lately. If I don't get that sucker in the water this weekend Im gonna loose it. They are saying 60-70 most of the week.

It will still be a few days before ice is off here on Devils Lake. The smaller bays are clear. Ice is pulling away from the shore on the main bodies. Wind pushes the slushy mess back into contact with the shore. It still is somewhat firm in the main bodies but just needs some warm wind to really break it up.

I have been predicting an April 26 ice-out. I would guess this Thursday might be it. It will take a few days to get docks in. The State Parks crew at Grahams Island, the Lake Region Anglers Association and the Minnewaukan Community Club do a great job in getting the public docks in so us nuts can get in the boat. I can't wait to smell the exhaust.

I wouldn't want to lay odds on totally open access. It will depend on were on the lake you would try. I don't know for sure if any ramps and the general areas around them are clear.

I need to find one close so I can at least get the motor in the water and fire it up before I actually plan to go out. You just never know until you get it running.

Today looks better than yesterday. More and more open water but we ain't there yet. It is open for hundreds of feet not miles.

Deemo I talk to a guy from DL yesterday and he said that all the bays were open and that you could get boats in, but the main part of the lake still has ice.

    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.

    • nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • The greenhouse experiment this year has paid off for me. I got to plant about a month earlier than I usually do.
    • They sound like they got cold, I planted too soon years back and had the same thing. I bought smaller new plants that out performed the stunted ones. It took about a month before they started growing again. The heat at the end of this week should help them out.
    • Not really. My cukes are going well. Got 3 tomato plants that look like they don't wanna do anything though!!??
    • That's a heck of a nail driver you got there!  😉
