The bite on Devils Lake...

We are entering the heart of summer and all of the traditional tactics and presentations have been producing walleyes. We are catching a mix of walleyes averaging 10-20 inches. It is really awesome to see the smaller fish in the system as they are the future of the lake. By far, the most consistent way to catch fish is by pulling a bottom bouncer and a spinner. Leeches/crawlers or a plastic have all produced. We have used slow death hooks tipped with a crawler or a spinner with a #2 octopus hook. Some of our guides have been slip bobbering as well. Smaller jigs or plain hooks have both produced. They are tipping their hooks with leeches and working 10-20 feet of water.

Best locations to work include: any hump that comes up, flooded roads, points, the old shoreline, and weed lines. This is obviously a lot of locations, but they truly are all producing fish. Pike fishing has slowed but we are catching some mixed in with our walleyes. There is good potential to catch a giant pike this time of year out in the deeper water. Bass fishing has been pretty good when you find them. We are seeing a lot of smaller bass out in the deeper water so they seem to be coming back.

All and all life is good in Devils Lake, ND! Give us a call or email us if you would like to get out before harvest or the kids go back to school.
