Sunny skies, a little wind and warmer temps has been making Devils Lake fishing a success!
Hello Anglers…….sunny skies a little wind and warmer temps has been making Devils Lake fishing a success. Reports this past week have been pretty good for the most part. Anglers moving around the most and trying different methods are having the best of luck. Pitching and trolling cranks remains to be the best method on catching nicer fish. Not the numbers but the size is there. The weed beds and shallower tree lines in east bay have been successfull with the right wind. Penny bay outside and inside the bay have been good, north of the stromme addition along the dike and weed beds, dairy farm and haybale bay have been some good spots. Doc hagens, old and new mill bays, howard farm area, and scattered spots up in Pelican lake…( Refuge Iland, small bays to the west, and north end of the tracks for pitching.) If you want to troll moon bars, old road of refuge island, and pelican ridge have been the better spots. Crank in 5-10 FOW and troll in 12-25 FOW. Brighter colors have been the best since the lake is still pretty murky. Live bait fishermen spinners and bottom bouncers on pretty much any old shoreline, deeper points and rock piles have been working. Leeches, crawlers, and minnows have all been bait of choice. Any of the bridges are also producing fish in the mornings and evenings. Use a jig tipped with a minnow. Good eating size fish are being caught at 57 bridge, 6 miles bridge and mauvis coolee bridge.
There are still quite a few birds around but with these nice days we are having the bird hunting is a hit and miss. Pheasent season opens this weekend, lots of good reports on pheasents. Good luck to all, keep those lines tight!!
