Well things have really started to heat up here on Devils Lake! If you take a look at all the weights in the Spirit Lake Casino Tournament you’ll see what I mean. Pretty impressive to say the least.

So what’s working? Maybe a better question or easier question would be what isn’t. I truly believe you can catch fish anyway you like to catch fish right now. For us guiding right now it’s been a mix of bobbers and trolling bouncers. Kind of depends on the day/weather.

The one lure that is doing really well up here this year is the Dakota Disc made by PK lures. I like to pull them the same as I do a slow death rig with a half crawler on a 1-1/2oz bouncer around 1.0 mph. Pulling these along or on top of structure will definitely get you results. When the fish are on the electronics but not willing committing to a moving bait, I’ll switch to bobbers with small jigs and leeches. Some days a mix of both.

All in all the bite is pretty darn good up here right now. I have another week here yet before sliding over to Lake Sakakawea for about a month. After that I’ll be back and forth a bit fishing both bodies of water.

I do have some openings in August on bith Sakakawea and Devils Lake if you want to get on the water. I know this is a little ways out yet, but the end of October through November is go time on the Missouri River near Bismarck. If you are coming out to hunt don’t forget to book a day on the water with me also. Make it a combo fins and feathers trip!

Lake Sakakawea Fishibg Report-August 7th, 2022

Being back on Sakakawea has been fun! Honestly for me, I love being able to guide on both of North Dakota's big bodies of water this time of year. It keeps you on your toes and I feel I'm a better guide because of it! No time to get complacent. The fish are moving...

Mid Week Fishing Report- August 3rd, 2022

Back on Sakakawea this week certainly isn't a let down. This lake has been on fire since the very beginning this year and hasn't let up a bit. The fish are moving around some. You can still find some really nice fish up shallow. Just need to be a tad more patient with...

Devils Lake Fishing Report- July 31st, 2022

It's been good! Bug hatches, tons of new food like baby perch and white bass, lots of fresh water shrimp, yet the walleyes on Devils Lake just continue to bite! What's working? Well, it's Devils Lake. Seems like whatever you like to use will work! What's working best?...

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 27th, 2022

So I've been up on Devils Lake now for over a week. Lots of different weather, a couple more bug hatches, and a really strong walleye bite. I get asked to compare or I get asked what lake is better? Totally not a fair question to ask. I just tell folks they are both...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 24th, 2022

I reluctantly left Lake Sakakawea earlier this week to travel east to Devils Lake. All the Rage (no pun intended) lol has been on how good the fishing has been on both bodies of water. I'm here to tell you Devils Lake is holding its own. Both bodies of water have been...

Mid Week Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report-July 20th, 2022

If Lake Sakakawea was a movie, I think we could call it Groundhogs Day. Nothing has changed really with the mood of the fish. They are still eating! They are a bit more scattered as far as depth is concerned. Some days it just doesn't matter, but the bulk of the...
