Daddy Fisherman, I sent you a PM. I will also be there this weekend as this is our annual trip there for the last ten years. I have done well in the past on the trout. Maybe we can meet up and discuss tactics.
Fished there a couple weeks ago. Threw chompers from the launch along the
Heading down this weekend camping with the family and some friends. I was thinking about row trolling with kayaks w my buddies a bit and possibly fishing from shore with the kids. Wondering if anyone has tried this before out here. I have some ideas i guess i just want to get some feedback on what might work. and possible areas to target. PM me if you would like.
I had some fast action on smallies and rock bass this last week. My video only shows a few fish caught but I ended up with 3 smallies and 2 rock bass and my son caught several largemouth bass and 1 smallie. The largemouth where around 15 inches but the smallies were under 14. This was my first time trying to fish here and it was a challenge trying to fish and watch my kids at not get yelled at by my wife for fishing LOL!
Fished Saturday 7/13 from 7am to 11am. 12 to 19 feet of water just off the weed line. Caught bluegill and perch. Kept 8 of each between 2 people. Gillls around 8 to 9 inches and perch from 10 to largest was 12 inches.
State park pass is all you need. Gonna be a busy weekend at the lake with all the heat, better get an early start!
Question. If you have an Annual State Park Access tag, do you need to pay anything each time you go to Devil's Lake, or just have the tag visible?
JBS - Was there a couple days ago. All along the East and West bank there were keeper bass in sight, hanging around the rocks near the shoreline. Water is crystal clear though, so I imagine live baits set fairly deep would be the best presentation. Slip bobber rigs or some such. I did get three to hit spoons/kastmasters I was throwing into deep water trying to catch Brown Trout. Pesky bass kept swimming up to me, looking at me like they expected me to feed them. Really weird. Also saw a couple of big carp (15-20 Pounders) hanging around. Didn't think y'all had carpies in Devil's Lake. Bet they'd be fun to catch.
Has any one have any luck on bass? Planing on comeing in a week or so? You think they hit big glide baits or swimbaits? Thanks in advance!
Yes, they sell minnows and I believe it is a Mobil, but not sure.
MasterPiker: Do they sell minnows? I think that would be the Mobil station, Correct??
