Feathers - a group of us were on East Bay this past Thursday - Sunday with 4 wheelers. Lots of water was on the ice with the warmer temps. We did not see any autos on the ice the entire time and personally, I wouldn't after the beating the ice took this past week.

Good luck and be safe.

Can a guy still get a small SUV on the lake? I'm most concerned with the condition of the ice at the shore access points.

Thanks

The fishing is fairly good after ice out. Usually the pike fishing is the first thing that picks up once ice is out and then the walleyes starting picking up about a week or two after the pike!

Fished devils lake by minnawaukon on Friday all day. 4 of us and kept about 10 eyes and 15 perch. Fished on stump on Saturday a lot of water on the ice fishing was ok nothing to brag about. We were told last week bite was much better. Kept 15 perch 6 guys fished in 32' of water on east side of lake wax worms were the ticket for us. Bring fat head minnows as every bait shop must be supplied from the same guy and he has the flu and did not bring bait!!!

As of right now most people are calling today the last day of driving vehicles on the ice. The shoreline is starting to degrade very rapidly. You can still get a 4 wheeler on the ice. Some people are walking out just to be on the safe side. There is roughly 30 inches of ice on the main sheet but the top few inches are starting to get really soft. It would be a good idea to bring some sort of planking for Saturday as these conditions could worsen over the next two days very quickly. Good luck and be safe!

I know this warm weather is really messing with the ice conditions, but I was wondering how are the edges holding up? Me and some friends are coming there Saturday. Can you still get an ATV on the ice? And if the edges have gotten bad are there any ice bridges in the area? And how much ice is still out there? Thanks, be safe and good luck!

The warm weather has sure changed the conditions up here in Devils Lake. We are currently sitting with abnormally warm temperatures for this time of the year. The next 5 days look like they are going to be really nice, but that will not sit good for ice conditions. All of the snow on the lake has melted up here making for some very slushy conditions on the lake with lots of standing water. The forecast also calls for the wind to pick up over the weekend which can really cause some drastic changes in the ice conditions.

It looks like today and tomorrow are going to be the very last few days of vehicle traffic on the lake. If you are venturing up here over the weekend it would be a good idea to bring a 4 wheeler and planking as access onto the lake can get tough as the ice starts to pull away from the shoreline. Make sure to call ahead to our local bait shops (Ed’s 701-662-8321 and Pete’s 701-662-8033) or to the Chamber Office 1-800-233-8048 to find out the latest conditions as things can change very quickly. Be safe out there and good luck to everyone!

Heading up to Devils for a weeknd trip and just wondering how the accesses are holding up with all this warm weather. Also wondering if there are any areas where a little bigger like have been caught. Always have done well in 6 mile but wanna try some new water for the heck of it. Thanks

Anyone who heads to Devils Lake for the first time, my recommendation is get a guide no matter the cost! They will at least get you on fish, answer your questions about the lake and then you can go on your own after that. It is a huge lake so make sure you have a good map; paper or digital and look for the funnel effect; and with the incoming warmer weather-move, move move. There are some great utube videos on line that may give you some tips also

40-43" inches of ice about everywhere extensions are a must! Fished towers marked perch but no takers. Fished west of state park in channel marked few fish caught one small one. It's a really really tough bite. Bait shops will send you to common areas with no luck. Get out and bounce around. There are fish to be marked but getting them to bite is another story. The walleye bite is great common areas found in past work and pike is decent. Some areas are drivable in 2wd most spots are 4wd from small drifts forming. Load tungsten with waxes 3-6 and dead stick minnows seams to work. Glow worked for us in evening or low light. I marked perch in the 30-35 fow but perch found in 15-20 fow seemed to bite quicker. UL rippin raps in glow where catching eyes in 15fow last two hrs of daylight.

We are at Devils right now with the jiffy propane auger with a 12 inch extension with a couple inches left to spare. As far as travel on the ice as long as u have a 4x4 truck there's no need to bring atvs with the amount of ice that's here, if u have 2 wheel drive it might be a challenge with the drifts.
