Well I've been to Devils Lake twice this year and spent six days on the water and change. I've watched about 150 boats at the cleaning stations and have decided that the great fishing they promote and what occurs are not the same.

Hit Devils lake the other day, had a south, south east wind. Went out of 6 mile and ran down to the Grahms Island road. Drifted spinners, jigs, and puppet minnow.

Fished out of Grahams Island on Saturday with a few freinds. We found fish in 15-31 FOW drifting/trolling sinners. Caught a few ripping puppets as well. Lots of undersize fish to pick through to get our limits. Bonus for the day was a pair of dandy jumbo perch.
Silver seemed to be the color, minnow and crawlers worked equaly as wel..
Sunday we drifted Lindy rigs with leeches in 6 Mile Bay. 14 to 16 feet was the best depth to target. Caught fish all day. There wasn't a hot color as they were biting just about anything we put down. Great day to be on the lake.Read more

Rented a boat from Sprirt Lake Casino.

Then fished the bridge channels using bottom bouncers and leeches leading to 2 walleye and a sauger.

Fished Creel Bay last night with my neighbor and my 2 youngest, target shallows 5-8FOW, used a Lindy with a leach or crawlers... Final count was 20 walleyes and 1 pike with 11 keepers for the table. Not to shabby. This was my kids first time fishing in a while and they had a blast.
Pics to Come this afternoon.
Went to Devils Sunday evening, Fished a few places from shore along hwy 19. finnaly found fish close to shore in shallow water. Best rig was a leach on a lindy in 3-7FOW.... Lots of small fish, had to pick through to find eaters.
Fished the west end of devils from shore last night, 3 guys managed 25 pike in 3 hours. The Mepps in-line spinners out fished plastics 2-1, biggest fish of the night was just over 30 inches, a larger fish was lost.
Kept 4 for the smoker, cant wait to fire it up next week.
Fished east bay on saturday and caught about 15 white bass and 15 pike all in the morning except one 42 inch pike in afternoon couldn't get any eyes and neither could anyone else on the lake that we talked to and we talked to like 25 to 30 boats and you can tell if they are lying or if they truly aren't catching fishRead more
