Things Have Heated Up!
The fishing has definitely picked up in Devils Lake. Water temps are hovering in the mid-60s right now and the fishing is good. There are reports of a lot of people getting into the eater size walleyes.
The bobber bite is still going strong right now. Focus on windblown weed bed edges in 6-10 feet of water. Plain hooks or 1/16th ounce jig heads tipped with leeches have been working well and producing fish. It seems like once you find the “x” spot you are in for a treat watching your bobbers take a dive under the surface.
Jigs and plastics are still producing a good number of fish as well. With the water temps warming up, the trolling bite is picking up right with it. Try focusing on the same weed beds that you would with slips bobbers and pull spinners and bottom bouncers tipped with worms or even with artificials like Berkley Gulp!
Good luck to everyone fishing this weekend! Feel free to share your catches with us on our Visit, Devils Lake Facebook page!
