Wind and more wind have opened the lake up!! There are some pockets of ice out there floating around, but the majority of lake is ice free!!
As for the fishing there are some excellent shore bites happening right now on the coulees and some of the rivers near Devils Lake. The Warwick area has been very good and there have been some nice fish caught at Channel A and further up north. Jigs and plastics are a very good presentation to use this time of year.
We are looking forward to fishing the lake later this week and we will keep you posted with what we find. We have not been in boats on the big lake this early since I have been guiding on Devils Lake. Should be very interesting!
Also, on Saturday I will be at the boat show in Devils Lake!! Stop inn and check out some of the boats that Blake's Marine has to offer!!
