Spinners are the Name of the Game!
The bite on Devils Lake has been good. It is the time of the year when the water temps are starting to rise and the spinner bite is starting to take off.
Try using an ounce and half bottom bouncer with a #3 or #4 spinner blade attached to the bottom bouncer. Right now the bait of the choice has been Berkley Gulp! in the minnow or minnow grub styles. Colors have been dependent on the fish, grab a bag of green, white, or orange and throw one color on see what the walleyes are wanting. Don’t be afraid to try worms if the bite is a bit tougher after a front has come through. Pulling crankbaits has also been productive in putting walleyes in the boat. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and try different styles of fishing, Devils Lake can be a lot of fun this time of year!
As far location and depths go, try in the 10-16ft range. Some areas that have been producing are Six Mile Bay, Doc Hagens, New Mill, Howards, and areas in Pelican. Try pulling along the weed edges or the structure of sunken roads.
Good luck to everyone out fishing and remember if you are not on fish, keep moving until you find an active school!
