Shallow water bite that is getting better and better each week!

“The weather has been the biggest factor involved with catching fish on Devils Lake this past week. We have had everything from calm and upper 70’s to windy and lower 50’s. The biggest factor involved on windy days is good boat control. Seems like the most consistent action is current. Some days the fish are in the current or just off it a bit, while other days they are scattered many yards either direction from current. Deeper rock piles have been very productive for us as well. We have caught many nice fish in that 25-32 ft of water over rocks or on the edge of them. As mentioned in the last few reports, there is a shallow water bite that is getting better and better each week. Pitching cranks or jigs and plastics has been deadly at times. This bite stays very solid and consistent right to freeze up. Here are just a few activities that are happening around Devils Lake this weekend: (duck hunting, goose hunting), right now: grouse hunting, and archery hunting for whitetails…and oh ya some excellent fishing still!! So many opportunities this time of year and so little time!”
