Planning an ice fishing trip to North Dakota this winter and want to know the top five places to sink your line? I’ve got you covered

1. Devils Lake

 Over 16,000 acres of ice fishing nirvana is what you’ll find at Devils Lake. Long considered one of the top five fishing lakes in the nation, it is home to copious amounts of jumbo perch, walleye, northern pike, and white bass. You may even be able to get in a little darkhouse spearfishing while you are there, providing you arrive before March 15, 2012.

  When it comes to lodging there are two places you should consider. The first is the Woodland Resort, which sits on the shores of Devils Lake. Ice fishing packages start at $85 per person and include overnight accommodations, an ice shanty, transportation, and bait. The second place is the Sunlac Inn in Lakota. It’s not as fancy, but you’ll find a fish cleaning station and freezer storage available on site just in case you catch the big one. Room rates start at $60 per person.
