1. Springtime in North Dakota!!!! Sunny and 50° one day. Snowing and 35° the next. Still no fishing for me. Sometime next month hopefully. Ice is almost ...more gone off the big lakes up here. They're catching pike and walleye in running water going to the lakes. Spawn is going on. Have a great week everyone!!

  2. 50 feet of water. 17” long. 3.06 lbs. what fight. Caught 5. This and 4 that were 15”

    White Bass with a fire tiger buckshot with wax worms

  3. Final day on the ice. Calling it a year. Caught these 5 in 50 feet of water. Gonna smoke these and the 3 from day before. White Bass are definitely a fun catch ...more and very good eating.

  4. Nice day on the ice. Last weekend of ice fishing. By next week the ice will deteriorate to much. Caught these guys in 50 feet of water. Schooled up to 20 feet ...more off the bottom. I love their fight!!!

  5. 50+ feet of water. On wax worms. What a fun fight!!!! 17 inches. 3.06 lbs

      Yes. It'll be decent ice probably thru the weekend. You may have to walk on but the ice itself is good yet Drove on last weekend. It's a matter of how ...more warm it gets
    2. Are they still fishing on Stump and Devils Lake. I want to go fishing tomorrow before I head back to Arizona.

  7. Slow Sunday. Fished from 8:00-3:30. Fish were there but finicky. Caught nice fish but had to work for them. Hole hopped from noon on in the same area. Water ...more comes over the ice when you drill so it gets slushy out there.

  8. Late post. Saturday's catch of walleyes. 33+ feet of water. No perch. Almost impossible to drive around in 4 wheel drive. Saw numerous guys bury their pickups ...more because they were just busting through. Be walk on from here on out after Sunday's ground drifting. Good luck out there and don't bother me if you get stuck. :)

  9. Took a couple days off. Fishing on the brain. Caught the big walleye a 7:00 AM and finished with the big perch around 12:30. Slow day but quality fish except ...more the 2 small walleyes. 35 feet they don't really make it from that depth. Lotsa snow on the ice. Gotta drive sensibly out there

      Just about anywhere. Everyone around here has their area they like. I generally go in the bay at hiway 1. But north of tolna has access. The west side that has ...more access is good also I'm told. Use the map on here for your depths. That's my key

      Where is a good spot to fish on stump lake?
    3. Randy M 0
      It's an either or deal. If your going without a guide and have spots to hit on DL that'd be my try. I don't fish but one area of stump. I'm more ...more into finding my spot in one area. I don't move much
    4. Im originally from Grand Forks so will be traveling back and forth from there. Devils Lake it is.
    5. Randy M 0
      Well I'm guessing you're coming in to Devils lake? Start on the big lake. Ask around. Keep stump as your back up. Fishing s decent. Everywhere. Stable ...more weather.
    6. I have never been to Stump Lake. I am flying in from Arizona.
    7. Randy M 0
      You could probably drive out a ways in your car. Depends on where you want to fish on the lake.
    8. Are there good places to fish that I can park my car and walk out to?
    9. Randy M 0
      Thanks Robert. Was quite the ordeal

Very avid fisherman. Love ice fishing best but open water is a close second. I open water fish just like I ice fish. Anchored over the side ...more straight down jigging.
