We are anticipating another great season of ice fishing again on Devils Lake!

DEVILS LAKE HAS ICE! Another ice fishing season is officially underway. The smaller bays like 6 mile bay, Wolfords Bay and Mission bay have reports of 3-5 inches of ice. The main lake itself has 1-3 inches. With below average temps and little snow cover on the lake we are making ice fast.
Some anglers have started to venture out but please use caution on early ice as ice conditions vary from place to place. If you do go out, please fish with a partner and bring ice picks and a rope just in case. Its a long season and we don’t want to see anyone get in trouble out there.
The perch fishing last season was the best we have had in years and looks to be even better this season. Devils Lake has also been listed as one of the top 5 best walleye fisheries in the country, add in a healthy population of hungry Northern pike and you have one of the best ice fishing destinations in the country.
This season we will again be using the Clam Thermal X fish houses as these are by far the best fish houses we have ever used and our clients had nothing but great things to say about them. This season we will be using the Vexilar FL-18s and new this year are the Vexilar Fl-22s. We are really excited to use these new units.
We have started to take reservations for the upcoming season and if you have a large group we urge you to call soon as some dates are already filling in. If you want a good look at Devils Lake Jumbo Perch fishing, check us out on, “Jason Mitchell Outdoors.” on Fox FSN north TV this weekend.
