August DL or Lake of the Woods

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a 3 day trip to either Lake of the Woods or DL. I have a 16' lund. Do you think I'll have a better chance of not getting blown off DL than Lake of the Woods? There really isn't anywhere to hide from the wind at Lake of the Woods. How is DL???

I would pick Devils Lake because of the many boat ramps on all sides of the lake. Yes it is big and it can be rough but I have always found spots out of the wind. My 2 cents. One thing for sure, the fishing has been good on both lakes recently.

I'd have to agree on the last response. I have a 16' boat & fished Devils Lake in June. It would be hard to imagine it being so rough there that you couldn't find a bay to trailer to & it still be fishable. It's huge, but broken up into several major bays, with a ton of smaller bays off of those & plenty of access points. I've only ice fished LOW, but there's some huge expanses of water out there & I've read posts this summer of some awfully larger rollers on windy days.

Fished Devils Lake for the first time this past weekend and I must say I was impressed. You could always find a good place to fish on this lake.
Getting out of the wind looked like it was not a problem and tying up to flooded timber and fishing right off the side of your boat was an added bonus! Didn't hardly burn any boat gas.
We all filled out with very nice eating fish. Sure went through a lot of leeches though. As a forty year fisherman of L.O.W. I just can't wait to try it out with a house this Winter. I know I will be back again. We really had a good time and there was no crowding issues either at the dock or on the water. Local motels also seem to know what fisherman want and need, [a place to clean your fish and park your boat] Not trying to kill any L.O.W. action here just my thoughts on last weekends fishin.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
