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.

    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
