Devil Track Lake

5 posts in this topic

FMers,

I'm heading up to Devil Track Lake this upcoming weekend. I've never fished it before. I've done some studying up, primarily pilfering through DNR netting stats, etc...

Anyways, I'm just trying to kill some time while "vacationing" with the in-laws. Not planning on keeping any fish, not asking for any honey holes. I'm simply interested in catching some fish.

Thanks a lot guys.

The bass should still be in the shallows. I was up there 2 weeks ago and we caught over 100 bass in the day. You'll nail them every other cast with a white or orange 3" power grub or twister tail. The walleyes were tight lipped, maybe they'll be more active now. Most of them run on the smaller side though. The north side of the lake has the better fishing. There are some potential big northerns in the lake. It's a good evening lake too, walleyes move in real shallow. If you have a lakeside site you'll be able to catch them from shore with a bobber and leech.

JB - any size to your bass? I haven't fished Devil Track much the last few years, but it was always hard to find respectable-sized bass or walleyes.

Mike, I'm sorry, I meant the south shore of the lake is better fishing. If you start in the middle where the islands are and work your way west (or vice versa depending on the wind) you'll catch more bass than you can count. The northshore from the campgrounds west can be good too though.

Jaybird. I have noticed the average size has gone down just a little bit, but we were still catching them at 3/4 to a pound, with a few 2 pounders mixed in. I seen a few reel biggies cruising around in the shallows, but they weren't interested in any baits.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
