The bite has been decent. Look for a more consistent bite as soon as we get warmer weather. Water is getting warmer by the day; however, we still need a bit more for the bite to really go. Lots of pike and bass with some dandy eyes mixed in! The bite will continue to get better! Good luck to all!!

Ladies and gentlemen...Start your engines because we have an ice free Devils Lake!! It sure feels good to be on the water after a long winter! As for the bite...We have had some pretty good walleye and pike fishing. Very important to be in or near current. Some fish have spawned, others are spawning, and there are some that will be this week. Culverts, bridges, anywhere there is water coming into the lake are all good places to try. Water temps range from upper 40's to mid 50's. The shallow water back bay bite that Devils Lake is famous for is getting very close, all we need is a few days of warm weather and the water temps will be where they need to be for active fish.

Best presentations include: jigs and plastics, pitching cranks, vertical jigging with leeches or minnows, and slip bobbering with leeches. Of late, a lot of the walleyes we have been catching are males. Most of the females have laid their eggs and the males are now milting.We are close to the shallow water bite exploding on Devils...START YOUR ENGINES!!

Come on warm and wind!! The weather is starting to act more like May and the ice is getting softer by the day. At this point I would not suggest ice fishing on Devils Lake. Ice is getting mushy and the edges are open nearly everywhere on the lake. Channel A area is opening up more and more each day. There have been some pretty good bites happening on ice and in smaller boats in the Six mile bay (Channel A area).

Key to fishing this time of year is to fish current. Anywhere there is water coming into the lake, bridges, culverts, etc. all will hold fish. If we can keep up this nice weather, ice should be off shortly! I am hoping for 10 days... Needless to say, everyone in the Devils Lake area is excited for open water fishing!

If you want to get out and experience some of the best walleye, bass, and pike fishing in the country, give us a call or shoot us an email and we will make it happen!
