Whitebass Shore Fishing on Devils Lake

Recommended Posts

Does anyone fish for whitebass from shore in Devils lake and know when they will start to bite like crazy? I have never fish during May/June time to see if they bite during this time of the year. When do the whitebass spawn in Devils lake? Thanks!

Any new whitebass fishing actions from shore? I want to book a fishing trip to Devils Lake and don't know when the WB will start biting from shore. I assume the water temp needs to be warm in order for WB to start hitting from shore line. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

MidCoast said in his post above that his buddy came back from shorefishing with their limit, so I'd say they've been biting already.

I will answer your question. White Bass spawn is pretty much over or in its last stages. 6 Mile Bay area, Black Tiger Bay area were producing the most. Walleyes were mixed in too. Northerns are plenty as usual also. Fathead minnows and bright colored jigs works.

The late ice out and cold temps held the spawning later than usual this year. There is no exact location on keying in on the fish. You will have to move about to find them in the areas. Sometimes waiting out the bite in a certain area or choosing to fish at different times of the day are important. Morning and evening hours are best. Light wind blown shorelines are key to finding fish.

Good luck and happy fishing.

went out last weekend and caught white bass every cast for over an hour from a boat. Went out the next day into black tiger bay and caught many from shore. Look for the people fishing from shore and you will find the fish.

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
