Humma Momma what a week! The schools of perch seem to be getting larger with each passing week. We literally had schools of perch coming out of the auto zoom on the Vexilar and at times they would be 8 feet thick! Our best day we had 26 clients all limit out on perch by 1:00 pm. Now that is some perch fishing at its best.
We are having our best luck fishing the basins in any where from 36 to 48 feet of water. Still catching most of our perch on Northland Buckshot Rattle Spoons and Hali’s tipped with either minnow heads, waxies, or perch eyes. They key is as always, drilling holes and finding them. Every bay we have fished this year has a school of perch some where. It has been a fun year because we can pretty much go anywhere with our 4 wheel drive trucks. This the best access we have had on Devils Lake in years.
Our schedule is nearly sold out for this season. We do still have a few openings but with every passing day there is less and less. We have been asked if we are going to take reservations in April and the answer to that question is we will make our decision on that later in March. We need to see what the forecast is, how fried our guides are, etc.
If you are planning on fishing Devils Lake on your own make sure to put your extensions on your augers or you could be in for a long trip.
Have a great week everybody!
