Fall bite starting on Devils Lake


Hello, again everyone! We sure have had a absolutely fantastic summer with limits upon limits of walleyes being brought in. Now, with cooler mornings and some strong north winds occurring the fall bite has started. We are still catching our fish on bottom bouncers and crawlers or gulp at 1.2 to 1.6 mph. Pulling plugs with lead core line has definitely picked up this past week. Salmo #5 in firetiger and any chrome pattern has been great. Speeds when using leadcore with plugs generally should be in the 2.3 to 2.8 mph. Many of the sunken roads in Pelican or the Golden Highway have been producing well. Some of the many bridges have been producing some nice limits of walleyes and a few jumbo perch as well. Methods here have been a jig and minnow or leech, remember to use a heavy enough jig so you always make good contact with the bottom. A Lindy rig and a minnow or leech worked very slow on the bottom has been a favorite with the shore fisherman.
