Fishing Report July 10, 2014
Finally some stable weather here on Devils Lake which helps produce more consistent fishing. Techniques have been consistent for the past month which means fishing the windswept shorelines using bottom bouncers with spinners. Night crawlers have been the number one bait with spinners, however leeches and plastics have also been working well. #5 and #7 Rapala and Salmo have also been producing a lot of fish particularly in perch and firetiger colors. Jigging around the various bridges and towers on Devils Lake has continued to produce many fish. Don’t forget about slip bobbers. Slip bobbers were working extremely well early in the year, and have continued to do so in July. Either with a plain hook or with a small jig, both have worked well with leeches and crawlers.
Areas to target on Devils Lake include flooded roads and deep weed edges which can range from 7 to 12 feet of water. Several spots in East Devils Lake, New Mill Bay, Hog Bay, Cactus Point, and the north end of Creel Bay have all been producing a lot of fish.
Shore fishing on Devils Lake has continued to be very good in the early morning and late evenings for anyone that is looking to put some lines in the water and catch some nice walleyes. Areas to target when fishing from shore include the Woods-Rutten Road, any of the bridges including Six Mile Bay and the Casino Bridge, and also the road out to Grahams Island just to name a few spots.
We have all of the tackle mentioned above along with some of the hottest colors that have been working well here at the Woodland Resort bait shop.
