Disclosure:  This post is brought to you in partnership with What U Talking Bout Willis and Devils Lake.  

Imagine going on a trip with your family where you can breathe fresh air, fish to your hearts content all while enjoying the outdoors.  If making memories with your family is at the top of your list, then Devils Lake should go hand and hand with your memories. Covering over 160,000 acres it has hundreds of miles of shoreline to do your fishing trip from. One of the best parts of fishing (in my opinion) besides hauling in ‘the big one', is when your bobber goes up and down. There is just something about the excitement that fishing brings when you love the sport.

Devils LakeAbout Devils Lake

Devils Lake is known as one of the best places to fish in North Dakota.  This lake is the largest body of water in North Dakota and holds a large quantity of walleye, white bass, and even northern pike call it their home. You will also learn that Devils Lake is known as the “Perch Capital of the World“.  So, if you enjoy catching perch as our family does, you will really enjoy fishing here too. If you and your family enjoy going out onto the water and do not have your own boat, there are boat rentals available. There are also a dozen or so bait shops close by to get what you need for your fishing excursion, plus extra rods and reels if needed. Of course, you are going to be better off remembering to pack your own best fish finder from this list for the trip rather than renting one you haven't used before.  Possibly you are new at fishing and want the best experience possible, then a fisherman guided tour is a great idea. Even if you are a seasoned fisherman but haven't fished at Devils Lake before a tour guide would be a great experience too. You can choose from open water or ice fishing depending on the time of year. There are 16 fishing tour guides available to choose from on their site, so you are sure to find the perfect fit for your trip if you choose.

I live in Illinois near Wisconsin. We have a lot of lakes nearby. I would not have expected lake activities in North Dakota. It’s been a long while since I’ve been out that way. Thanks for a great review.
