The bite goes on...Our clients have been experiencing some fast and furious fishing on Devils Lake over the past week. We are catching lots and lots of nice eating size walleyes (15-18 inchers) with the occasional nicer eye as well. Not a lot has changed as far as presentation and location goes. The majority of the walleyes are still in that 24-32 ft range. More and more fish are being caught near the bridges/current areas as well. There is always a shallow water bite on Devils Lake somewhere, so don't be afraid to go into shallower water and try casting cranks or jig/plastic combos. Perch and pike have been caught daily with the walleyes out in the deeper water. If you are looking for pike, concentrate on the shallower water with a crank or jig/plastic combo.
Again, this is a fun time of year to be in the Devils Lake basin! Waterfowl hunting has been great and should get better and better as more birds migrate down from Canada. The leaves are beautiful and the air is crisp! Lots and lots of options this time of year for people to pursue!
If you would like to experience some of the fast and furious action on Devils Lake, give us a call and we will make it happen!

We still have fantastic fishing!! There are 14-16 inch walleyes biting well all over the lake...we are still finding the majority of them in 22-30 ft of water; however,there are more fish are being caught in shallow water again and in the current areas of the bridges! Pitching cranks or jig/plastic combos in 6-12 ft of water can be deadly, look to catch a few nicer fish in shallow as well...vertical jigging, slip bobbering, or ripping blade baits is the presentation of choice near the bridges. We are still catching some beautiful jumbo perch and northern pike while we are fishing for walleyes!!
Goose and sharp tail grouse season is open and there have been a lot of geese harvested!! Duck opener is right around the corner and the sloughs are loaded with them...if you have never experienced Devils Lake in the fall, we highly suggest you give it a try, you won't leave disappointed!!
