Perch Patrol Fishing Report
Things continue to rock and roll for the Perch Patrol on Devils Lake. This is easily shaping up to be one of our best years ever. It seems like every where we go on this lake, we find a new batch of perch. It really makes a huge difference when we find a fresh school that haven’t seen a lure for a while. They tend to be of the biting variety.
We continue to have our best luck in 34 to 52 feet of water using northland buckshot rattle spoons, or some new lures made by Clam Outdoors. Both the bomb spoon and the speed spoon have proven to be very successful. Minnow heads are still producing the best, followed by a perch eye, and wax worms.
If you are coming to Devils Lake to fish on your own, make sure to bring your auger extensions. The ice continues to grow and we are finding some places that you won’t get through with out at least a 6 inch extension.
Our schedule is nearly full for the rest of this season. We still have some room in March but it is filling fast. More room the last 10 days of March and by the looks of things and our ice thickness we should easily be still fishing until then.
Have a great week everybody!
