Devils Lake Report

Recommended Posts

First of all i would like to say what a great job everyone did that helped make the ice fishing tournament a success. It takes a lot of planning to make it work and Jim Moe and his crew really do a great job! We could of had a little less wind but that didn't stop everyone from coming out and a lot of fish were caught and everyone had a great time. The last time I heard there was a little over 3,000 people on the ice.

Now for a fishing report: The high winds over the weekend made it hard to be very mobile and most people were blown off the lake. The good news is that the warmer temps helped to settle some of the snow and make travel a little easier. Today we spent the day chasing perch and we found that traveling off the trail was much easier and made looking for perch that more fun. Some of the best perch reports of the year have been coming in the past week or so. Several different areas of the lake have been reporting excellent perch catches with nice size Jumbos being reported. A group of 3 came in with 54 perch averaging 10-13 inches. The best depths have been 28-36 ft and halis, genz worms and small buckshots tipped with waxworms or small minnows have been working best. The walleye bite remains fairly steady with walleyes coming in depths of 6-30 ft. Shallow timber lines are producing early and late and some walleyes are being caught along with the perch on deep rocky structure. Jigging Shad Raps and Buckshots tipped with minnow heads have been working best. Northern fishing continues to be excellent in many parts of the lake. Smaller pike have been coming off jigging while the larger pike are coming off tip-ups with smelt or herring.

    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids..  steak night is probably my favorite night 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.
