Lots and lots of things are happening right now out here on the frozen tundra of Devils Lake. Cold, snow and a little more snow is all adding to the puzzle of staying on top of a bite.
The walleyes have been fairly nice to us. Each morning and evening brings a different mood to these fish of course. All in all the walleyes are all over the lake. Any form of structure seems to be holding fish. Dead sticks with a minnow hooked in the back on a bobber is doing well when the walleyes come in and check out our rattle spoons with a minnow head.

The nice thing at Percheyes is we have a very talented group of guides that work extremely hard to find and stay on a bite for you the clients.
Like always we have some scattered dates open for this winter. If your looking for an easy day on the hard stuff where we do all the heavy lifting get ahold of us either here on the website or Percheyes.com and book your fishing and lodging packages. No group to big or to small. Hope to see you on the hard water!
