Fishing Reports 2010

 
12/09/2010 Fishing Report
Hey guys hope you guys had a good fall. Well we have 10 to 13 inches of ice on the west end of the lake and about 10 inches of snow. Walleye"s are biting really good in the early A.M. and late P.M. Most the fish are coming in 6 to 10 ft. of water. Jigging spoons like the Lindy Flyer's are working well tipped with minnow heads. Tip-Ups with a #10 treble hook tipped with a minnow is working well also.
We do have some openings yet this winter if your interested, and a great Dec. special if you can make.

Keep your lines tight.

Hot Hot! The temps are hot along with the fishing. The new Lindy spinners are still number one on our guided trips. We are using the two hook harness tipped with 3/4's of a crawler. The best depth seem to be 10 to 12 foot of water along road beads and weed edges. For the best results we are using 1 1/2 oz bottom bouncers with the new Lindy spinners. Colors that work best for me is Perch, Blue Gill and Fathead minnow. Speed seems to be key at 1.2 to 1.4 MPH/ Fishing the first four hours and the last four hours of the day seems best. You will also run into Pike and White bass while pulling these spinners. KEEP YOUR LINES TIGHT!

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. As a full time guide, Jason Feldner spends over 200 days a year on Devils Lake, his favorite body of water. To say hes in tune with its seasonal walleye migration is a severe understatement. But when the ice finally receded on Devils this spring, even he struggled with the high-water conditions.

After coming up empty in his traditional honeyholes, Feldner finally gave up and began treating Devils as a new body of water. Some of his favorite trees had been ripped away by the ice and other productive areas suddenly had an additional five feet of water on them. It took some time, but the Minnewaukan, N.D., native finally figured it out. He started putting his clients on good fish and then a few months later the FLW Walleye Tour rolled into town.  

Most of the Tour pros started practice by returning to their favorite trees. Just like Feldner and other locals learned months earlier, this is a different Devils Lake. The bobber bite was off altogether and the crankbait bite was just so-so.

Feldner was dialed in from the start. On day one he caught a limit weighing 17 pounds, 15 ounces taking over a lead he would never relinquish. Days two and three were more difficult, but he still managed sizeable stringers 15-2 and 15-13 to be precise.

I was pulling Lindy spinners in Pelican Lake in 9 to 12 feet of water, said Feldner. The blades Im using just came out at ICAST a few weeks ago. Bluegill, perch and fathead minnow were my main three patterns. Fathead minnow was better in the sun and perch and bluegill were good when it was cloudy.

Earlier in the week, Feldner also mixed in the new Lindy Shadling, but on the final day all of his keepers came on the spinners. Behind those blades was a two-hook crawler harness.

I was fishing the bottom of the water column and trolling at approximately 1 to 1.5 mph.

The bite was slow early Saturday. In fact, Feldners first two spots, the same areas that produced nearly all of his opening-round weight, were void of fish.

We had nothing in the livewell at 11 a.m. Then we moved to our third spot, a spot Id been saving for the finals, and finally we found active fish. We had one 400- to 500-yard stretch where we caught all eight. At about noon, the big kicker hit. In those two hours, I bet we caught 20 or so. Once they turn on, they turn on. And youve got to be in the right place at the right time.

With the addition of optional pot money the 37-year-old earned $17,750.

04/26/2010 Fishing Report

     What an early spring. Last year at this time we still had ice on the lake. This year the Walleyes are just about done spawning in most areas. Fishing is starting to heat up. The current areas are still producing fish. Areas like the coulee bridges, six mile bay and where ever there is running water. Leeches seemed to be the anglers choice along with jigs tipped with plastics. Now that the docks are in at the boat ramp in Minnewaukan we are see more boats out ad about. Guys are catching fish pitching jigs along old Hyw 281 and any place that has rocks on the shore line. Again leeches and jigs with plastic are the key. Old hyw 281 is closed to truck traffic but you are allowed to walk, bike or take your ATV down them. there is a little water on top of the road, but for the people that put the rubber boots on and venture out are catching pike and walleye. With this early and warm spring are fishing is a good two weeks ahead. I would bet in the next 8 to 10 days the fishing will be second to none.

Keep your Line Tight


04/02/2010 Fishing Report

     Well I think the grip of winter is now departing us. We had our first claps of thunder this morning. As I look at the rain gauge it says about an inch. That should do it for the ice fishing. The shorelines are about done unless you want to plank out. My phone has been ringing off the hook. Are you guys flooded? I heard the town is under water? Do we still have a place to come. Yes we are still here and no we are not flooded. Yes we are getting a bit more water than last year. But not as much as they said so I think we will be fine for another year. So bring smiles and fishing gear and lets have some fun. Now back to the fishing. I have heard good reports from the few that are out ice fishing. Six mile bay, mission bay and the maulvee culee areas are doing good. We do have some run off coming into the lake around the bridge and culvert areas. Just in the last couple days I have seen some nice eyes being caught. Most guys are shore fishing or taking little boats out and putting them in over the rocks. Remember our best shore fishing months are coming up, end of April and May. We do still have some openings for Lodging and or guide service.


Thanks to all for a great winter season and we hope to hear from you soon.


01/09/2010 Fishing Report

     FISHING, it's up and down one day we will clobber them and the next day will just plain stink. Most of our walleyes are coming in that ten foot range. Tip-ups tipped with minnows and jigging spoons with rattles are working well. The key to catching big numbers of walleyes is moving allot during peak feeding times, A.M. and P.M. The mid day bite is slow and boring so if you get on the fish in the morning they should reappear in the late afternoon. Check out the fish these buddy's caught on our last guided trip. There was 14 of us and we limited out both days. WOW what a day. we still have a few opening's for the winter so quit wish'n go fish'n.

 

December 28, 2009 Fishing Report

     We had our first group of 7 guys out today (12-28-2009) and the fishing was good for the big weather change we had. The water is a little dirty on the west end and the fish are responding to it. When we get dirty water the fish seem to bite during the day versus the first and last our of the day. Walleyes like it dark, but when the sun isn't out it's pitch dark down there. So with a lake with no night bite you can see why the fish are feeding during the day. Back to the catch we ended up with 25 Walleyes, 7 Perch and a couple pike to go with them. Check out the pictures below of a couple dandy's that we released, A 24 incher and a 28 incher.
