Went back to the areas we had great success on Monday and quickly realized things had changed. 50+mph winds on Friday night pushed a bunch of water up the channels and made everything muddy. It also forced the current to run backwards the next day. Also there was a huge front behind the wind that brought in super cold temps. About the worst conditions one could ask for and the shore fishing showed it.

With no school my boy and I went channel jumping around Devils Lake. We found pike in the channels (mostly spawned out)smelt on the bottom was very effective but the most effective method to catch them was smelt under a bobber suspended about a foot off the bottom. Good numbers and great fights for a 6 year old.

Fishing is starting to heat up as the ice recedes from the shorelines. Casting to the ice with boot tail jigs and crankbaits have been working well. Fishing should continue to get better as the lake opens up.

just got back from 4 days out there. ice is around 15" on most of the lake but is melting super fast. Landings are too bad to land a wheeler in most locations (we trailered one out and used in certain spots). By the 19th I would say you'd be pushing it on having safe ice and would for sure not even bring the wheeler and save gas. while we were out there 5 trucks fell thru the ice in different bays around the lake. caught about 25% of the fish I marked but did come home with a good mess of fish

Took my boy out to Devils Lake for what appears to be our last kick at the can this ice fishing season. We went to a spot we found at early ice. It is clear the ice is changing fast. The access got really soupy just while we were out.

We set our eight tip ups and waited longer than usual for the first bite. It took almost an hour before we landed a fish. I was considering moving part of our spread then we had a magic hour and got the fish we wanted to keep. Over the next couple hours we picked up a few more that we let go. It was a good winter but after the next couple weeks of conflicts I am thinking there just won't be enough ice to get back out, at least with a little kid in toe.

Hey, I'm making a trip out to Devils this weekend.. I was wondering how the fishing has been lately, and any tips? Colors, water depth, anything! Young angler trying to enjoy alittle ice fishing before the ice melts. And has anybody been fishing around bird island rock pile? No idea what it's like over there, buddy showed it to me on an navionics app. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you and happy fishing!

If you have a trip planned to Devils lake after this weekend bring four wheelers and or snowmobiles the landings are already in rough shape open water on the tops of road beds specifically pelican and Alice bridges are wide open stay away from shallow cattails. Temps on Friday and Saturday both 40 and sunny.

Four of us fished Devil's Lake last Thursday through Saturday with Bry's Guide Service. We fished out of a snobear on T & F with a guide which was awesome and he put us on fish. I agree with most of what Buck said but we were fishing 10-15' for walleyes early and late and perch were in the shallows too but not many and we did better in 24-38' for perch. The perch bite was hit or miss in the middle of the day but we managed 36 & 38 perch and 16 & 20 walleye each day.

Two of us stayed on Sat. and floundered on bait shop talk. The perch were not active at all on Sat. and we ended with 4 decent perch that we gave away and no walleyes.

I will go back to ND next year but go in Dec. or Jan. or late ice in March but we still had a great time.

Ray- All the walleyes that we caught were on spoons, with gold or red colors by far being the best, always tipped with minnow head. Caught a few perch on these same spoons. Majority of the perch were caught on green fire tiger tungsten jig, also caught a decent amount on minnow dead-sticking next to the hole we were actively jigging...Many times several fish would rise in the water to hit the jig, after the hook-set, another perch would then hit the minnow. Good luck!
