Spent the week of the 7-8 to 7-14 fishing Devils Lake. Primarily jigged the bottom, targeting 18-22 feet. The Lake was wild, with whitecaps most days, so we tried to fish out of the wind ( I had my mom & wife with me...and they don't want to be in the wind, even though the walleyes like a chop on the water!). Most successful places were the Golden Highway (when we could get there) and backside of Graham Island. Most fish we caught were a short 12.5-14 inches, but we did get a few that were 18-20. Best color was purple, second best was pink and then a orange/yellow/black combo. Did not try trolling...not set up for it. And when we bobber fished, it was a lot slower. So, we stuck to the jigging and we were able to take home our limits. Our trip was more about the girls than my fishing, as my wife had never caught a walleye and it had been many years for my mom. I missed quite a few of my own hits while helping them. Hope this helps.

Crittermo,  I did not make it there this year but some friends did.  Water level down about 2ft from last year.   The pike are usually everywhere.  This was the week before Memorial Day weekend.  They had terrible weather.  Most days in the 40s, rain and very windy.   Water temps were in the low to mid 50s for the most part.   It is mostly a walleye trip and they came home very short on their limit of walleyes.   They did catch a lot of northerns which is the norm on that lake.  Some years it's hard to catch a walleye because you always have a northern on the end of your line.  There are some big northerns in the lake, but also tons of little ones.   They are becoming a nuisance for walleye fisherman.  A boat would be better, but you should be able to catch them from shore too.  We usually use crank baits, but leeches and minnows work good too.

Hi, my first time to be on devil's lake next week to fish for pike. I know the lake is loaded with pike and they are pretty much everywhere but should I be in the backs of the bays in shallow water? Would bank fishing be as good as fishing from a boat? I'm not asking for specific spots but maybe some general areas. Thank you

Coming out in two weeks and am wondering how thick is the ice?  I want to know what kind of extension would be needed.

Long Shot here,

But I will be in ND on Saturday 02/09/19 for work, leaving the 10th.   I would have the ability to fish on Saturday.   Is there anyone using a guide service (perch/walleye) that would have room for an extra guy?  I would pay my share by dividing the total bill for number of guys fishing.   Would not be into drinking and an average middle aged guy from Wisconsin.   Message me if youd like.   Thanks
