Hello from the fast deteriorating shorelines of Devils Lake!!!! Just to let everyone know that the 2014-2015 ice season has come to a sudden end with warm temps and wind making travel unsafe for us. I want to say THANKS to ALL of my Clients for a great season!!!! This winter has had it’s ups and downs with the fishing.

Perch fishing gave most of us challenges not only catching but finding them was hard. Days they could be found then the next day gone. Moving alot was the key to catching a few but the food source (freshwater shrimp) were in abundance and it was my conclusion why perchin was tough. Another factor was the large schools just never bunched together making it difficult to stay on top of them. Walleye fishing in the mornings and evenings was good, with evenings being better for my clients. Pike fishing was awesome with the average 3-5 # and several over 8# and even some over 10 being caught!!!

I am taking summer reservations now and preparing for yet another awesome open water season!!!! My summer calander has openings… so, NOW is the time to set up your summer trip on the lake with us. If you have any questions or just want to talk about fishing… don’t hesitate to call me at 701-381-2599. I would love to hear from you!!!!! Until next time…. Tight Lines John
