Ice is Getting Better!
As we continue to get colder, ice conditions continue to improve on Devils Lake! There are still some areas where the ice is “spotty”,so please make sure to get out and check areas frequently that you have not been on yet!
As for fishing…Steady is the word. There have been some solid catches of both walleye and perch coming in. We have caught walleyes in the shallows and we are also starting to see some out deeper as well (12-25ft). Perch have been caught in 10-35 ft, with the most consistent bite bring in the 17-30 ft depths. As always, persistence, moving, and searching are the keys to continually catching perch.
Best lures: Hali’s, smaller buck shots, slender spoons, and a bobber w minnow set-up.
All and all life is pretty good in Devils Lake these days, good luck!!
