Lots of walleyes are being caught at a variety of different depths

Fishing remains good!! Where is this summer going to… Lots of walleyes are being caught at a variety of different depths. It is really fun now because you never know what you are going to catch. We have seen everything from 8 inch up to 25 inch walleyes. The majority of the walleyes have been in the 14-16 inch range. There have been several dandy pike caught while we are fishing for walleyes and we have even had the occasional perch. Some of our perch have been flat out huge!! Seems like the size of fish can vary from day to day. One day you might find a school of 14-16 inchers and the next day they might be 16-19 inchers. Also, it seems like there are days when the fish are tight on spots and other days they are scattered. We have had our best luck pulling live bait rigs and trolling cranks. There are days we have had great luck pitching jigs and plastics as well. Best depths seem to be in that 8 to 17 ft. range; however, we have caught fish shallower and deeper than that.
Best tip to give you would be to cover water until you find active fish. Don’t be afraid to try different presentations and depths, with a  bit of persistence, you will be on fish!!

Good luck to all, if you want to get out to Devils Lake and enjoy some of this great fishing, shoot us an email or give us a call and we will make it happen!
