Options Like Crazy on Devils Lake!
This is without a doubt my favorite time of year. Fall colors, harvest, cooler days, hunting is getting going, and of course, FISHING!! Really the biggest issue is deciding what to do or how much can one do in a day…
The bite has been solid! There are days we really get into them and there are days we work a bit. This is a transition period and we are still finding fish scattered from the shallows to the deeps on Devils Lake. We are using a variety of presentations: bottom bouncers and spinners is still the most productive for us; however, we are doing pretty well jigging live bat or jigging raps in current or on rocks. This time of year offers great potential for a trophy fish!
Again, current areas or areas close to current should get better and better. Also, do not forget to work some of the shallower water again. Those frogs are heading back to the lake and the walleyes and pike are going to be waiting for them!
Good luck to all and enjoy one of the best times of year in North Dakota!!
