With the much anticipated Casino Cup Championship approaching up here in Devils Lake, it’s gonna be an interesting weigh in to say the least. I think we are going to see some very heavy weights come in weather prohibiting.

Lots of transition happening on Devils Lake right now, and I’m guessing this is the story for most of our waters here in North Dakota. It’s just that time of year! Water temps fall at night warm during the day. Weed growth begins to die off, and lots of food becomes available.

I will say this…Devils Lakes future is super bright! Record hatches of pretty much everything that swims took place this spring with the rising water. Lots of fresh new trees and vegetation have made Devils Lake into a fish nursery and I’m super excited about the next 5 years up here for all species. Especially the Perch!

Even with record breaking spawn, the fishing is tremendous right now. These walleyes have plenty of food to eat, but just like in typical DL fashion, these fish like to feed and feed they are! Look for weed edges, rocks, trees etc. where young of the year fry are trying to hide and match the hatch so to speak to catch them. Cranks, cranks and more cranks are working best. However, we are catching fish on jigs, spinners, and bobbers still.

Few dates remaining for open water especially on the river near Bismarck later fall. If you are looking to book an ice fishing trip with me get ahold of me so we can get you all lined up before all available dates are taken.

Sakakawea and Devils Lake Fishing Report-September 25th, 2022

If you follow me on my Snapchat you know there are two things I absolutely hate. One is the beet juice they use on our streets in Bismarck in the winter, the other is wind. As you can guess by the time of year, I haven't been complaining about the beet juice yet. The...

Mid Week Fishing Report-September 21st, 2022

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...

Mid Week Sakakawea Fishing Report-September 14th, 2022

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...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-September 11th, 2022

Water temps this week started in the 70's and by weeks end they are dipping in the mornings at times in the mid 60's. That can only mean one thing, the fall feeding frenzy is closing in! Up here on Devils Lake this week I'm seeing alot of sportsmen taking advantage of...

Mid Week Fishing Report-August 31st, 2022

This mid week fishing report I'm going to change course just a tad. With my recent cancellations, it has given me an opportunity to pre scout the upper stretches of the Missouri River near my hometown of Bismarck, ND. I like to get out on the river a few times early...
