Catching most fish with….

Not a whole lot new to report.  We are still catching most of our fish bottom bouncing with spinners, crawlers, and powerbait.  We are still catching most of our fish in 9 to 16 feet of water and we are still sorting through a lot of fish to catch our keepers.  We have found some new spots along weed walls that have been producing a nice mixture of walleyes and the occasional northern pike.  The key to fishing these weed walls is to always fish the windswept side of the lake.  In other words we always want some sort of wave action coming in to the weed line we are fishing.

We had a little slower week this past week as far as customers go and some our guides did take some well deserved couple of days off.  We have a fairly busy schedule coming up this next week and we want to remind everyone that even though school is starting and harvest is under way, the fish on Devils Lake don’t quit biting.  The past three years late August and September have provided some of the best fishing of the season.  The fish generally run larger and the number of fishermen on the lake is normally way down so once we find some of the larger fish, we generally are able to enjoy some of these spots all to ourselves.

Lots of good fishing left…get them kids off to school this next week and plan a well deserved fishing trip with Mitchell’s Guide Service!!!  We would love to have you!

See you on the Water.
