> You don’t always need a boat to catch walleyes…. Many consider Devils Lake, ND to be the walleye shore-fishing capital of the world, and guess what? The season never closes. #Jackpot
> DL is one of the few walleye factories (that’s not a river) where the walleye season is open during pre-spawn and spawn. Male walleyes are the first to show up shallow when the water begins to climb into the low- to mid-40s.
> Anywhere there’s current in 1-8′ is a good place to start: bridges and channels, inflows/outflows in the backs of bays near spawning areas, even riprap along road edges.
> Look for south-facing structures along northern shorelines as it warms the quickest. Packing a set of waders can help you to sneak away from the crowds and cast where others can’t reach.
> Being able to fish with 2 lines per person gives you a huge advantage in dialing in the bite. Try pitching plastics or tossing shallow-diving cranks with your “active rod” to catch aggressive fish. A slip-bobber or slip-sinker rig with live bait on your second rod will fool the fussy biters.
Here’s 28 reasons why (all in inches) you might want to consider a road-trip to Devils Lake, ND this spring – and congrats on the PB, dude! #ShoreBruiser
