Many different presentations that are working…

I must say that I am truly impressed with how good the fishing has been despite major winds, rain, and cold fronts we have had off and on the past week. Seems like the wind has blown from a different direction everyday. Our water temps dropped about 10 degrees but they are slowly climbing back up!!

As far as the fishing there are many different presentations that are working right now for walleyes. Many of our guides are still pitching jigs/plastics and cranks into the shallows. Usually, the best best is to follow the wind (but not always.) We have also had days where the live bait has been the ticket. Bottom bouncers and spinners or slow death rigs tipped with leeches or crawlers. We have also had some great bobber bites. Our best depths are anywhere from 3-14 feet of water.  Seems like there are 14-16 inch eyes everywhere. We have many 17-22 inch fix mixed with a few over 22 inches most days.

Bass are in the shallows with the walleyes. Seems like if you cover enough water you will run into them. We are seeing many larger bass mixed in with some smaller ones as well.

Pike have been caught in shallow but we are not catching quite as many as we were a few weeks ago. However, we had some really slough sharks hitting witch always makes it fun!! Look for bigger pike to get more aggressive for the second half of June. This is usually the best time of year for a true monster pike!!

So overall life is good on the waters of Devils Lake! We have had a busy summer and the future looks busy as well. If you would like to get out and have some fun, give us a call. Also, some of the best action of the year is coming up…Fishing in July and August can be awesome on Devils and if you would like to experience the action, we would be more than happy to take you out! Thanks, and good luck to all!!
