Sleeper House on Devils Lake...Need Help

Recommended Posts


I am going to be coming up to Devils lake this week Thursday and will be pulling up a new 26’ Ice castle fish house. I have a few questions for you as I want to make the most out of this trip as possible. First off how is the snow situation on the lake? Back home we have a ton of snow and getting around with this rig just isn’t possible. Also are there a couple different accesses that will allow this rig to get onto the lake? As far as fishing, I was thinking to set the big house up on some structure for evening/night/morning walleye. What would a typical spot consist of, not asking for where(of course that would be great) but more of what I should be looking for, I have a map chip with my locator set up in my truck so I will be able to find some spots just want to know what I should be looking for. Now for the real reason we are coming up, the perch….I have been doing a lot of reading so far and it looks like they are going deep…are these fish just constanly roaming out in the main basin of the lake? Or should I bee looking for some kind of structure relating schools of perch? I am under the assumption that I should be drilling a tond of hole over a large area in the main lake and hop to contact some fish…I am completely fine with doing this but would like some tips that could maybe narrow down my search time…..Again I just am pulling for some loacal knowledge and hoping you can get back to me with some information…

Lake access and getting around is easy. Go to Woodland resort and pay their $10 access fee and use their road system. You are right about the perch. Start looking in 36ft and deeper. Drill lots of holes.

Thanks for the response, I have already sent some emails out to Woodland as well, hopefully we can work something out with them....Back to the perch fishing....when looking at a lake map, do you start in the middle of the bays....6-mils and Creel bay both looks to have deep water in the middle of them, or does one just go out into the main lake and start drilling around....I dont like to fish by other people so I am going to be avoiding people....Thanks for the help...

    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
