Last year we had the fastest thaw I've ever seen and this year it is the slowest I have ever seen. Actually, it really hasn't even started to melt or thaw in the Devils Lake area. It is still winter and it looks like it might be here a bit longer. We do not have any real warm weather scheduled in the near future.
The bottom line is life goes on. We can ice fish a bit longer. There are some pretty good bites for eyes, perch, and pike going right now. We could have ice fishing into late April?
We have had a fair amount of people wanting to fish in the next few weeks so we will continue to fish until conditions are unsafe. It looks like we will have at least two weeks of good ice, probably more.
Let us know if you want to do some real late ice fishing!!!
