It's the time of year where walleyes can and are caught in a range of depths and locations. We have caught fish in as shallow of 8ft of water and as deep as 35ft. Without a doubt a bottom bouncer and spinner have been the most productive method to produce numbers of fish. We have used leeches, crawlers, and some plastics for our best results. Cover water and find the pocket and life is good!
Slip bobbers have also produced fish and vertical jigging has been good at times to. If you can find the "X" then bobbers and vertical jigging is super fun. The key is to be on top of the active fish.
Pike action has slowed a bit; however, the pike we are catching are big and feeding on walleyes. We have had many in the mid 30 inch range with fat bellies. Bass have also been caught out in the deeper water with walleyes. Seems like once you find the school it is game on. We have even caught a few perch mixed in with the walleyes. All and all life is good in Devils Lake!!
Book that trip now before harvest starts or school begins, summer is starting to slip away.
