Beautiful weather, fish are cooperating!

After a long winter it is so special to get out on the open water! Water is warming quickly and we are currently experiencing some walleye action in or near the current. Vertical jigging with a minnow or a jigging rap has produced some dandy eyes! There are some females in the current spawning and some have already spawned. There are more and more males showing up in the current areas the past few days. 
Look for the back bays to continue to warm and for post spawn Walleyes to be arriving very soon!
Pike are already there (in shallow). Pitching cranks/ jig plastic combos is a great way to cover water and find the active pockets!
As the spawn occurs/completes, please remember to practice "catch and release" on the nicer fish!
Good luck to all!

Open water time!!

Devils Lake is ice free! The lake is open and ready for fishing via boat.
As far as the bite goes....concentrate on current areas (either in or near) as the spawn is going on and will be for a few weeks. Once the spawn is complete look for shallow warm back water bays!!
We will keep you posted with the most accurate/current bite on Devils Lake each and every week!
Good luck and enjoy the open water!!
