First time to devils lake.

Recommended Posts

I was asked to be apart of a trip to Devils Lake. Just looking for some general info. Or mabey a phone number to call. 3 people we're going to pull a wheel house with and plan on spending 3 days on the lake. I understand it's a big body of water and like any lake it could be hit or miss for someone fishing it with no experience of the lake. I have fished Lake Winnibigishosh for a number of years. It has taken me several years to learn the lake but the past 3 years has been very sucessful for me. Questions for devils lake. Access on to the lake? (resorts ect.) Are there plowed roads? Many people use wheel house out there? Just looking for a place to access what travel might be like once on the lake. And mabey a point in the right direction to mabey catch a few fish. Would be willing to pay a guide service to lead us out if it would be ok to use our shelter and equiptment. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated. Planning on the last weekend in January Friday thru Monday. Sorry I know it's rather short notice.

All of the access points on Devils Lake are public access. Many people use permanent houses but the key is to stay mobile. If your need more info or are looking for a guide you can give me a call.

I'm coming up to Devils Lake Jan 19th - 22nd. We will use a permanent house as our base, and we are bringing a couple portables to stay mobile. Looking forward to getting back up there, its a really fun lake to fish.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
