Fishing Report September 9, 2014

September walleyes are in full swing on Devils Lake. Whether it is trolling with cranks or bottom bouncers and spinners along the weed beds, see or vertical jigging the bridges and towers around Devils Lake, both techniques have been very successful the past couple of weeks.

The crank and spinner bite has been most successful in shallow waters of less than 12 feet. The larger fish with this technique have been coming as close to the weed beds as possible. Area like this include Six Mile Bay, Pelican Lake and Lake Irvin to name a few. Spinner colors include any with yellow or orange, but it has not been limited that. Try tipping your spinners with either night crawlers, Gulp! or Northland Impulse. Crankbait colors include firetiger, perch, and yellow perch.

Many anglers have been having success by jigging one of the many bridges located around Devils Lake, including Hwy 20 and 57, Six Mile Bay and the Mauvas Coulee Bridge. Jigs tipped with minnows and night crawlers have been working well. Also try Rapala jigging raps in sizes 7 and 9.

It has been a fantastic year of fishing and as guide Mike “Spider” Shell would say “It was a good day (year) for everyone except the walleye”.

There is still a few days open for fishing for the rest of this year and we are now taking reservations for fishing trips next year. It is never too early to call and book your reservation and reserve your fishing guide for next year.

Fishing Report August 22, click 2014

Some people think fishing slows down in August and September, sovaldi sale not here on Devils Lake! Fishing continues to be exceptional throughout the entire lake. Presentations have been similar throughout the entire summer, with the fish not being too picky. Some of the popular presentations include trolling with either cranks or bottom bouncers with spinners. Slip bobbing and jigging along with Lindy rigs also continue to be popular especially around the bridges on Devils Lake.

As leeches become tougher to get this time of the year, many guides and anglers have been using crawlers and Gulp! with their spinners. Anglers that have been jigging have been using leeches when possible, crawlers, and are now slowly moving towards minnows.

The overall fishing has been fantastic on Devils Lake. Practically all presentations and depths are producing fish. There is currently quite a few smaller fish in the lake so make sure to stock up on bait in order to help you weed through them to get to the larger fish.

We have all of the tackle mentioned above along with some of the hottest colors that have been working well at the Woodland Resort bait shop.

August 8th 2014 Fishing Report

As expected, sales August fishing has started off outstanding! Many presentations continue to work great including trolling with spinners and/or cranks, slip bobbers, jigging, lindy rigs, and pitching plastics into flooded timber and weed beds. The best locations are the wind-blown shorelines where the baitfish are stockpiled. Keep in mind that the wind-blown shorelines are not the only place to fish on Devils Lake, however it is a good starting point.

Our guides from Mitchells Guide Service prefer the trolling technique due to the fact you can cover more ground in less time. This gives you a better opportunity to zero in on the fish in order to work an area more aggressively.

We have some of our guides from Mitchells Guide Service fishing in 6-8 feet of water with great success, and others are fishing depths ranging from 15 to 20 feet with the same success. As you can tell there are not any particular fishing techniques or depths that are more effective than others. Some of the larger fish that have come in tend to stick really tight to the weed beds. In order to get this big fish out of the weed beds it takes a lot a patience and passes in front of these weed beds to get them to come out and strike.

There has been a lot of success on Devils Lake as of late, not only for our guides, but for the fishermen going out on their own as well. A few spots that have been doing really well include the area in Six Mile Bay between the two bridges, Concrete Bay by the Casino, the Minnewaukan Flats, and Pelican Lake to name a few. Hot colors include Perch, Yellow Perch and Shad for crankbaits. The fish do not seem as picky when it comes to spinners as people are catching them on many different colors. When fishing with spinners, Gulp!, night crawlers and leeches have all been working great.

We have all of the tackle mentioned above along with some of the hottest colors that have been working well at the Woodland Resort bait shop.

We have many great dates open towards the end of August and into September, so let one of our 11 guides take you out and experience some of the Midwest’s best walleye fishing this season with Mitchell’s Guide Service. Call our office at 701-662-6560 to make your reservations, or call Woodland Resort at 701-662-5996 book a lodging and fishing package to make your fishing experience as hassle free and productive as possible!

Fishing Report August 1, 2014

The fishing was great throughout July and August should produce more of the same. Many presentations continue to work great. Presentations include trolling both with cranks and spinners, salve slip bobbers, view jigging, and lindy rigs. Both shore fishing and boat fishing have been producing great results. For best results when fishing from shore would be to target any of the bridges on Devils Lake. Whether it’s Six Mile Bay, Hwy 20 or 57, or one of the many other bridges, many anglers have found good luck fishing these areas. The best times to fish the bridges seems to be early morning or later in the evening, however you should still be able to get some fish during the middle of the day.

Fishing from boats continues to be exceptional! There is currently a healthy population of walleye ranging from 6 to 25+ inches, so make sure you have plenty of bait so you don’t run out when sorting through the smaller fish to get to the larger fish.

The bridges and towers have been really productive when jigging around them, especially on rock structure in about 15 to 20 feet of water. Pulling bottom bouncers with spinners has still been the number one technique that our guides from Mitchell’s Guide Service have been using, with cranks being a close second. The fish have not seemed to be too picky when it comes to color, however pink and white have been popular with spinners and hot steel and firetiger being popular with cranks.

Good areas to target include Six Mile Bay, the Minnewaukan Flats, the Golden Highway, and the Camp Grafton shoreline east of Military Point. Fishing west of highway 57, including East Bay and East Devils Lake have been just as hot as any other spots in the lake. The majority of fish are being caught in depths of 10 to 15 feet when trolling, but are not necessarily limited to those depths.

Some of the hottest fishing of the year is going on right now on Devils Lake. We still have some dates with Mitchell’s Guide Service throughout August and September if you want to get out and experience some great action. Whether you are an experienced fisherman looking to land a trophy of a life time, or just looking to take your family on an excellent fishing experience, now is the time to book your trip.

We have all of the tackle mentioned above along with some of the hottest colors that have been working well at the Woodland Resort bait shop.
