North Dakota guide Jason Mitchell gives his latest Buzz Bite Report for Devils Lake on February 3rd, 2023.
Devils Lake Buzz Bite Report 2-3-2023
Overall the fishing on Devils Lake has been pretty good. The good news is the perch numbers are defiantly up compared to previous years and the walleye fishing has been really good.
The bad news is that we’ve got a lot of snow and a decent amount of slush forming. If you don’t have a track machine or snowmobile it’s going to be difficult to get around.
There are a few plowed roads by some of the resorts, the casino, and East Bay campground, but overall you’ll be pretty limited to where you can go.
Target perch in thirty-four out to thirty-nine feet of water. Small tungsten jigs like the Clam Snow Drop XL in a glow or gold color have worked great. Tip the jig with either a minnow head or wax worm.
Walleyes can be caught in seven to thirteen feet of water on main lake structure during primetime hours in the morning and evening.
Aggressive jigging baits like the Clam Tikka mino or the Pinhead pro spoon tipped with a minnow head has produced a majority of our fish.
Stay safe and good luck to all the anglers fishing Devils Lake!
