Hello again everyone!
Looks like we are going to see another warm weekend. The wind is also supposed to blow around 30 mph on Friday, but it will dial back a little come Saturday. Walleyes and perch are both being caught at a moderate rate the last few days throughout the lake region. We are seeing ice in most areas at around 20 inches. Buckshots, jigging raps, and smaller tungsten jigs have still been the presentations of choice. Throughout the day many people switch between presentations trying to get these fish to bite. This can be and is a good approach to dialing in the fish, however sometimes it is best to fish with what you are most comfortable doing.
The 16th Annual Shiverfest is right around the corner! Starting Friday February 20th the party is to be kicked off at The Cove with “Portland Junction” playing at 8:00 pm (no cover charge). Saturday will be a busy day out here. At 9:00 am the Frozen Fanny 5k will start off the morning activities. This will be followed by a bunch of events. North Dakota Pond Hockey Tournament, Curling on ice, and Sleigh Rides will be all day events out here at Woodland Resort. Ackerman Acres will be hosting kite flying from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. There will be a Winter Wonderland Vendor Show at the Peterson Arena from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The Youth Ice Fishing Tournament will be from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. Vehicle parking for this will be on the South side of our Marina. From there it will be just a short walk onto the ice where the tournament is being held. The evening events will be capped off by a Fireworks Display and “Portland Junction” at 8:00 pm at The Cove. Sunday will be kicked off by the Pancake & Sausage Breakfast Benefit for Fishing has No Boundaries will start at 8:00 am at the KC Hall (downtown Devils Lake) and will run until 2:00 pm.
