ND Fishing Report-November 21st, 2021

We have had a decent week of weather. A few guys have been out probing both the open and frozen waters.

For me I’m not quite ready to venture out on the ice. I do so much ice fishing starting mid December running into mid March, I’ll wait until she’s thick enough for the side by side.

Speaking of early ice, please be careful out there! No fish is worth falling through and possibly losing a life over. Be careful, and use common sense when venturing out. New float suits, like the one I wear from Kmdainc.com are important to wear. Ice picks and spud bars are the tools of choice while checking ice. Take it slow.

Still some open water fishing going on. I’m actually hearing guys are doing better off shore. The casting bite up at the Tailrace and also a few selective areas on the river is good after dark.

As far as the boat fishing goes it’s kinda inconsistent right now. Seems the guys pulling cranks in the current along the sandbars are doing best. The water has dropped again here recently, and that is creating the spots to change and the fish to relocate a bit.

I’ve been busy both getting all my equipment and bookings rolling for ice fishing this winter on Devils Lake. If you are thinking of a trip, please get ahold of me. We can accommodate groups of any size.
