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!!!

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
