Things are happening fast up here on Devils Lake! The fishing is getting better by the day as it’s a race to catch them now while we still have ice.

We’ve seen a lot of highs and lows this winter but things are definitely headed back towards the high!
My only concern with this warmer weather is we do t have the snowpack to insulate the ice. My guess is the access areas onto the ice are going to get ugly fast this year.

So what do I expect from Devils Lake here as far as the bite is concerned? Don’t t be afraid to try shallow! The shallow fish are gonna feed, if you mark them, they should bite!

Moving forward please watch the pressure ridges and check ice daily making sure it’s safe to fish. No fish is worth a human’s life. Small buckshots, jigging raps, and small spoons will definitely be best tipped with both minnow heads and wax worms. If you can get outside and drill holes and continue to move your success will be pretty solid!

This will probably one of my last Ice fishing reports. I’ll be moving my attention to the open water on the Missouri River near Bismarck. I’ll start my open water guiding as soon as the river is ice-free! Keep tabs on my reports and if you’re looking to get a jump start on the open water season get ahold of me and let’s get you on the schedule! mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com

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...

Transition is definitely the word to use right now up here on Lake Sakakawea. If you are to ask 10 boats how things are going on the water up here, you will get all kinds of different answers. Some will say it was good. Some will say it was a little slow, and some...
