It certainly amazes me how fast word travels these days when it comes to catching fish. Modern technology without question, is a huge factor in this. Texts messages, snapchat, instant messaging, pin drops etc all factor into word of a bite and spots being discovered extremely fast.

We have found this to be the case so far early on here up on Devils Lake. I’m sure some of you slough fish heads find this to be true also. It certainly can be a good thing to help each other out especially in my line of work. We have a group of 7 guides that share information on a daily basis. All of the guides I work with are extremely talented and versatile anglers. I admire each one of them for their talents and each one is versed in a different way. But let’s face it, breaking a lake down 6 to 8 inches at a time is never an easy task, so having help is a huge benefit!

I’ll use this week as an example. Our group was fishing an area all together. Shacks fairly spread apart. After checking on my two shacks, I discovered they only had two in the bucket. Never a great feeling as a guide after the first half an hour. As I climbed back into my side by side, ready to get search mission underway, one of my buddies pulled up and asked me if I got his text. I said not yet, and he informed me just a 100 yards away, that his guys were up to 25 already. With that information, I loaded up my crew and set them up a little closer. Boom, an hour later we had a nice couple of buckets of fish going and some extremely happy clients!

As far as the bite goes, it’s still pretty good! The fish are grouping up a tad in areas. Not all areas are created equal though. I think each area of the lake is containing a goof population of perch. Will they bite or will they not is the normal sequence of the perch bite.

I have a few random openings left yet for this winter. Not many, but if you are looking to get out let me know!

Ok, if someone has the controls for the fan you can dial it back a bit. I just spent the last 3 days at Devils Lake and now I'm pretty sure 60 plus of those hours were winds over 15 mph and as much as 30. Definitely wears on a guide. Even though the wind blew, the one...
