Hey fishin4it just finished a short trip out there and to tell us the truth it's a combination of a few things very unsteady weather lack of snow and tons of shrimp and other food in the water. All the fish we caught were packed with shrimp in there stomachs northern and walleye are predator fish so they don't mind gorging themselves but there is a few perch to be had have confidence and good luck out there Cool

With reading all the negative reports, is not giving me positive feeling of this Wisconsin group heading out there next week. We Targeting Walleyes and Perch mainly.

Is there any reasoning/evidence as to what the deal is this year?

I've ask for input/suggestions in past but never received an honest response but will ask again with hopes.

Tight lines everyone!

Hello everyone wanted to post our short but memorable trip to devil's lake my wife son and myself fished sat 28th and sun the 1st. Of course most of the fishermen love to find the big Jumbo's and has it's been most of the winter they were illusive but the diehard ice fishing trio that we are we didn't get discouraged. We had booked our trip with John Adams of big John's guide service and let me tell you he found the fish for us. Since the perch were slow we went after walleyes and northern limited out on northern in an hour and a half and each of the 2 evenings together we had 15 eyes and lost countless more. Sad to head home after such an awesome weekend but we will definitely be back out chasing em again with big John. I wanna say Thx again to John for the great time and the hard work and hospitality. Anyone looking for a great trip and get put on some fish give John a call I highly recommend him to anyone for this wonderful fishery.good luck to all and stay safe out there Cool

10 of us.(Yes 10) just got back to Wisconsin from a 4 day trip to Devils Lake. The Chamber of Commerce made it sound like we would have no problem with the perch. Guess What?? Not one of us in 4 days of fishing even saw a fish. We fished hard and moved around even tho it was cold. I would strongly suggest to others planning on going out there to find somewhere else . We were totally misled. I think the problem is, is there is so many shrimp in the system. Everytime you drill a hole the shrimp would come boiling up out of the hole. Spend your money somewhere else.

3 of us fished a dozen different locations over three days in early February, we never cought a perch! I dropped my camera down at least 30 different holes over those three days and never seen a perch! At one time we fished amongst the masses in Creel Bay for four hours and never seen anyone catch a fish! It would've been nice to at least have seen a perch!

I feel for you; I went through the same thing the week before. Unless you had a guide things were pretty dismal. We were up there Presidents weekend and the below zero temps didn't help us out. I know everyone says you have to be mobile but its hard to do at those temps. we tried East Bay where we were very successful the year before but as a 4some we only scored 3 perch. Fished the Golden Highway up by Minnewauken and ended up with 3 pike. The first day was our best where we had 5 walleyes in 12-14 ft of water but then the wind picked up and the fish turned off. My round trip was 1400 miles. Ugh

February 19th Report

The fishing here on Devils Lake has remained steady despite these cold snaps that we have been getting lately. Being mobile and drilling a lot of holes has been the name of the game most of the year and still has been this last week.

Perch are not in as big of schools as they have been found in the past. We seem to be finding smaller schools but are still catching them. There really hasn’t been a particular depth that has produced the most fish. Perch have been caught in as shallow as 10 feet and also as deep as 45 feet. Don’t be afraid to go off on your own path and try something different than everyone else, you never know where you may find them! Small buckshots and tungsten jigs tipped with either a minnow head or wax worms have been working the best.

Walleyes are being found in the usual transition/structure spots. Depths for walleye have ranged from 15-30 feet and seem to be biting the best the first couple of hours at sunrise and last couple of hours before dark. Orange and pink jigs have been the go to colors this season up here. The pike are still going great and many people are having great success in the shallows for them.

We did get some snow over the last weekend but travel on the ice has still been very accessible. Don’t forget to bring your extensions for your augers this weekend as there are reports of the ice reaching upwards of 36 inches in some spots this last week. Good luck to everyone this weekend!
