FISHING REPORT
3/13/15 9:23 PM CST
Ice Depth: 27"
March 13th; Perch and walleyes are biting very well. Small jigs with waxies and spikes for perch and tip downs with minnows for walleyes. The lake is very deep and is holding it's ice very well. The edges are 100% and no marbling of ice yet. We have about 27 inches of very good ice. Some are still driving pick ups on the lake. You can walk out 100 yards and have good fishing! Remember, always CHECK YOUR OWN ICE! If you have a problem on the ice, it's your problem and nobody else! All ice condition reports are history reports, not the right now that you are living in! Some shallow muddy lakes are showing dark ice. Bringing wheelers is always a good idea. Access is very good at the old black top road. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 cell

March 10th; Doing very well on one lake and some times good on another for perch. Some walleye also. Ice is very good on the lakes that we are fishing. The trails are starting to dry out. So far we do not need wheelers. That can change soon. If we get strong winds and warm. Then the lake edges will go. So far so good on the lake edges. I have opening 3/23 and depart 3/27. I will get cancellations also. No snow in the fields. I have a fishing tip in regards to my friend is catching fish but I can't catch a darn thing! One cause is Putting under arm deodorant on in the morning before fishing and not washing it off your hands with warm soapy water. The out side of the container has the smelly stuff on it too! The fish don't like that smell. The fish think you stink! Smelling like fish could be a good thing after all! Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

March 7th; We have a new good lake that lots of locals said is fished out, because they can't catch them any more! Guess what, the fish are there in large numbers, just like the fish manager said at the meeting in Lehr. If you can't catch them now, it's your fault. Small jigs and wax worms or and spikes. If they are not biting for you it's all about the food! We have excellent ice and easy travel. Border line on the extensions. Almost no snow in the fields. Good fishing and good luck.

Fished last week for 6 days and ended up with 2 guys getting 80 fish. It got progressively slower as the week went on but we were in tough conditions with 15 below zero and 20+ mph wind at times. we had one day where I was able to hole hop and that was my best day. Thank you Kurt Karnes for the awesome accommodations and hospitality. Thank you Don for the great reports and fishing info. Hope to see you in March next year. Neal and Tim.

March 3rd; We have one lake that has a bite for perch. The last High pressure systems shut it down for the week end. Yesterday Brandon's 4 guy's caught limits of perch. The day before they caught 12 each. One was 15 inch. They ice trolled until they found a big school and game on. The other groups had a tough time of it. Some had good walleyes early and late. High pressure days are slow. If you use small jigs with grubs you can figure it out and do well most of the time. I have a new opening. Arrive 3/8 Sunday and depart 3/11 Wed. We have about 4 inches of snow on the ground and patches of snow on the ice. The snow on the ice is deep some times. If you get the yellow shooters glasses, you can see the big snow piles. Wal-Mart has them for 7 bucks. Ice cleats are a must have, HT Enterprise has them and a lot more good fishing stuff at www.icefish.com My LP Jiffy auger always starts easy and no stink in the shack. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

Swede; I agree with what you are saying. I'm saying the only place left to look is feeding on the large number of shrimp on the bottom of the ice and staying there. The only way to prove it is lots of tip ups set at 6 inches under the ice and over a large area. Don

Don,

USUALLY you can mark a perch even when they aren't biting. At least I can in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Drop a line down and curiosity brings them in to sniff the bait.

Many times we drill holes to attract fish, too.

No, we didn't drill holes over every inch of the lake, but we covered the major areas - deep, shallow, middle, shoreline, points, bays, weedlines, wood, etc. Not even a flicker on the bottom of the graph.

I know there are fish in there - our mutual acquaintance spoke with F&G last year when they were netting it. But, the numbers they spoke of? And not one fish graphed in over 100 holes scattered across the lake? Might be a secret bay I missed around some corner?

Feb 26th; We have one lake that has a good bite for perch. This lake also has produce lots of walleye early and late in the day. High pressure days are slow. If you use small jigs with grubs you can figure it out and do well. Swede, the fish manager says none of our lakes have reduce numbers of fish due to fishing pressure that he can measure from his yearly Fyke netting on each lake. He has a lot of experience in the field as well as a degree in this field. Are you saying you know the fish are gone because you can't find them? They could be feeding on the bottom of the ice on all of those shrimp. When you drill a hole they scatter? Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

Feb 23; The perch fishing has been good some days and bad some days. Some fishermen have done well and some not as well. Small jigs and waxies with spikes. The walleyes have been good lately. Northern bite remains good. We have some openings due to cancellation. It's hard to believe you guys are so crude and rude. I called ND Game and fish today and asked where their funds come from to pay for all of the activities and costs of operation for Game and fish. That's what you should have done instead of the usual bash I get from guys like you. They said that all of their funding comes from liciensing fees! Not taxes, dummy! "Carpkilla...agreed. Another question? Not directed at any one outfitter. Always wondered why it's ok for someone to make a living off the backs of the people of ND. Taxes pay for game and fish and they in turn stock the lakes. " You said you wonder why the numbers of big perch has gone down at Devel's Lake, when we get 2-3 years of heavy snow making it hard for many fishermen to get around. It must be the same reason you always use. It's the fishing pressure. All of the guys that couldn't fish in the deep snow on Devel's caught all of the big ones! That makes as much sense as you do! You still believe that your fishing pole and a minnow decides if the fish are in the lake any more. After that finger pointing that they are gone because of your fishing pressure! Latter in the year when the fish start biting again, then the amnesia comes into play. Well I will forget that for now. How convenient and pathetic! Could it be the big fish are eating the baby perch, bugs and are not hungry for your minnow? It's always about the food! No matter how many times the perch limits are reduced you always want it lower. Like that will make them bit your minnow! They like bugs much better. Mother nature makes the rules. Get used to it. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 cell

Feb 14th; It was a great fishing day. Some nice fish caught. If you check around, you will find. Our area is one of the only places there is a bite. Lake of the woods, Devil's and others are having a tough time finding biting fish. We are lucky to have at least one good lake this winter. That lake was over stocked with walleye and the minnow population was decimated. Our fish manager says this lake will eventually run out of food and crash. Our two area fish managers both say all of our lakes fish populations show no reduced numbers of fish in their annual fyke netting's due to fishing pressure. Also our fish grow so fast that any caught fish are replaced very fast. Twenty eight months for a 17 inch walleye. The fish managers also said if the fish are not biting, they have too much food! If you can't catch fish, it isn't someone else at fault! Learn to fish with something other than minnows. I will teach you for free! Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 cell

Feb 13th; Some of our groups are catching about 12 nice perch a day each. Some much better and some less. Small baits with grubs are best. Walleyes are biting around the edges of the lake with minnows or buck shots and minnow heads. Mostly 15 to 22 inchers. Northern are still good. We have openings. The snow is 2 inches on the ground. The snow on the ice has blown off except for piles. The accesses are very good and travel on the ice is very good with 4x4 pick ups. Ice is 24 inches and very good. Ice cleats are a must. I have openings. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c
