Places to go - Fish to catch!!

Recommended Posts

I am looking to make a trip to Devils Lake this winter to chase some jumbo perch and maybe an eye or two. I can use some help here on places to fish, places to stay and any other good info I can find. It would be nice if I could find a place that provided plowed roads and/or sleeper houses. Houses are an optional thing but it would just be a bonus.

All help is appreciated.

Thanks IFFWalleyes. I have had some contact with Ed's Bait in the past. I am hoping we can keep this forum current with some good info as well. I know that North Dakota has a lot to offer the outdoors people that some do not even realize is there.

Jeff-

My opinion, ND is outdoorsmen's paradise. I just live too far away to enjoy it as much as I should. Deer hunting (both Mulies & Whitetails), Duck hunting, Goose hunting, Big Horn Sheep (if you are lucky enough for a tag), Pheasant, and the fishing opportunities are endless. Awesome catfishing if you look at the Red River to the east.

Anyway, I've got a group of guys that plan on making possibly 2 trips out to Devils Lake this winter. One early & one late. We just stayed at a hotel in Devils Lake and went out on our own for fish last year. There is a trail association (or something like that) that maintains a network of plowed roads on the lake. I know the Black Tiger Bay area is usually pretty decent for perch. We did alright, but the weather was incredibly unruly. I know last winter Devils Lake had a problem with too much snow. It was too deep for vehicle traffic and they couldn't keep the roads plowed. This time we'll be towing snowmobiles out there to stay a little more mobile.

It would be nice to see a little more activity in this forum.

Hanson,

I agree. There are just a ton of hunting and fishing opportunities out there. I have not had, or taken, the chance to do much fishing out there but I have had to pleasure of hunting geese and pheasants a couple times. What a blast that was. I know I probably seen more geese that weekend then any other place or time. I think one of the things that really surprised me was the welcome we got while we were there. The people that we encountered there were just great.

Glad to see there is starting to be more interest on the North Dakota page. Waterfowl hunting is in full swing and before we know it there will be a sheet of ice on the lake. I cant wait! This year hopefully we dont get as much snow. As it gets closer to ice fishing I will be posting weekly reports to keep everybody updated on the current bite and trail conditions. Besides running a guide service we do also offer lodging. We currently have two houses that both sleep up to 6 people and are very affordable. If you plan on coming up this winter give us a call or drop me an e-mail and hopefully we can help you out. Think Ice!!!

A weekly fishing report for that area would be great. I also am glad to see some activity on this board.. I look forward to reading your reports.

    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
