4-25-2014 Fishing Report
Well we are getting really close to Ice out and when this happens watch out. We have very little run off this year due to small snow fall amounts this year. So in return the classic bridge and current areas won't produce like other years. You will have to fish rocky shorelines and road beds. If you are looking for a great pre spawn bite you will have to be here Around the 10th of may. all we need is a little sun and wind and the ice will be gone and the walleyes will be moving shallow so don't wait, give us a call for some of the best fishing of the year.

Well we had a great fall for fishing and the ducking hunting was good also. We are deer hunting now and the lake is starting to ice over. We are 99% booked for the up coming ice fishing season. I will not be posting fishing reports this winter so if you have a trip booked with us and want to know how the fishing is please call me and I will fill you in.

8-5-2013 Fishing Report
We have had a few bumps in the road since the temps have cooled down both water and air. Fishing still remains good. Some days its mostly eaters and the next day you get a couple releasers. Trolling cranks is starting to heat up. I would have to say spinner and crawlers are best by far. We still have a few openings in aug. and sept. if you want to get one more trip in this year.

3/17/13 Fishing Report
Well winter just won't turn into spring:'-( We have need getting blasted with snow but not to worry we have tracks on our trucks and can go, we are not limited. Just wanted to clear that up. I have had some phone call asking because off other guide services calling it for the year. Fishing is hit and miss nothing fast but good numbers by the end of the day. We have need all over the lake so to say what depth we are catching is literally all depths, flyers with minnow heads or spikes seem to be best. We are totally booked for this season and 50% for next year so do miss out if you want to join us next year.


3/09/13 Fishing Report
Well we ended up getting another foot of snow. The only way to travel on the lake is tracks or snowmobile. Fishing has slowed a bit with the snow cover. If I can get my customers to get outside and hole jump you end up with a good catch, nothing fast but steady. We had a customer get a 30.5 inch walleye WOW. He some pictures of some catches from the last ten days.

2/11/13 Fishing Report
Well it has warmed up a bit and has been cloudy for 15 days :-(. Fishing is not fast but if you stick with it you end up with a nice batch of fish by the end of the day. We have been bouncing around a lot to catch fish. Some days driving as Far East as you can go. Lindy rattlen flyers seem to be best tipped with a minnow head. Tip up action for walleyes is slow most all fish coming on jig rods. Pike action is hot tho.  Call Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294.

1/29/13 Fishing Report
Fishing is really up and down with a few here and a few there and by the end of the day you'll have a nice pile of fish. We are catching walleyes from 6 to 20 foot of water. Lindy Rattlen Flyers tipped with a minnow head seems best. The tip up bite for walleye hasn't been as good as the past years. Perch fishing is all over the board. One day you'll do good and the next will be none. The perch are 20 to 52 foot of water with the east end being the best.  Here's a 2.04 oz hog Scott Gooder got on a guided trip.

11/24/2012 Fishing Report
Well deer hunting is winding down out here in ND that means its time to break out the ice fishing gear. With the cold weather we have been having the northern parts of Devils Lake and smaller lakes around the area have ice on them. Good reports are coming in on Perch, Walleye and Pike. 3 to 5 inches seems to be the rule right now. We do have more cold weather lined up so I think we will be on the west end in a week or so. With the Perch Numbers up we are hoping to have another great year on the ice. We still have a few openings in Dec. and Jan. if you want to take advantage of some of the best Ice fishing of the year.
Call Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294

9/10/2012 Fishing Report
This season is chalking up to be one of the best on record. Fishing is still stronger than ever. Spinners, trolling lead core, jigging, bobber fishing and casting cranks is how you can catch fish. Depth range 3 to 25 foot. And that's a fact. Pick a piece of structure and fish it the way you want and you'll catch fish. Here are some pictures of some nice fish from the last week.

8/22/2012 Fishing Report
Fishing remains very strong. I know I sound like a broken record but spinners in 8 to 12 ft of water on the wind blown shorelines with crawlers is working best. Pitching lindy shadlings along the shorelines is working for bigger fish but the bites are spread out. Bobber fishing is working well on the humps with leeches as well. It seems a lot more bigger fish are showing them selfs. I feel Sept. is going to be one for the record books.

8/15/2012 Fishing Report
 
Fishing remains very good on Devils Lake with limits coming in every day. Most walleyes are coming from 8 to 10 feet of water pulling cranks or spinners. Bobber fishing the humps is also working well. We have a few slots open in Sept. if you would like to book a trip.
Call Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294

8/3/2012 Fishing Report
Fishing remains great, limits of Walleye every day along with pike. We are even getting a few perch mixed in. Spinners and crawlers are the best in 8 to 12 foot of water. We do a a pitching bite going but it takes awhile to get a limit. Bobbers and jig fishing is working well on humps. We still have a few openings for the summer if you want to make the trip.
Call Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294

7/28/2012 Fishing Report
Bobbers, jigging, casting cranks, trolling, pulling Bottom bouncers with crawlers. You will catch fish! You can literally catch fish in any depth you want. Bigger fish are shallow and it takes a lot of patience to get them. Fish a little deeper and you'll get numbers and some nice eaters.

Call Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294


7/17/2012 Fishing Report
Well even with temps into the 90's the walleye action is nonstop, pulling spinners, bobber fishing and pitching jigs and crank baits are all working great. Most of the nicer fish are coming less than 12 foot of water. Crawlers and leeches are the bait of choice. We still have a few openings yet this summer if you want to make a trip out.
Call Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294

7/3/2012 Fishing Report  
Well customers from IA seem to be the norm for this year. We had a family of 8 out for three days and they smashed the walleye. The bite was best early in the morning with the flat calm conditions and the third day of there trip we had some wind and landed some really nice eyes. You can catch fish doing anything right now. We pulled spinners in 10 to 14 foot of water along shorelines and road beds. A couple of my guides also had good luck slip bobbering the bumps on the flats. We still have a couple open slots if you want to plan a trip.

6/29/2012 Fishing Report
Well the fishing is really good. The water temp is from 65 to 70 you can catch fish slip bobber fishing, casting cranks and pulling spinners seem to be best. The best fishing times seem to be early morning and then 1 pm to 3 pm. Perch pattern spinners seem to be working best with a two hook harness tipped with a crawler.

6/22/2012 Fishing Report
Fishing has been very good for us. Bobbers, spinners and pitching jigs with sliders and assassins or shadlings has all. Even productive. Bobber fishing along with spinners have been best in 7 to 12 foot of water. If your going to pitch put your boat in 8 ft of water and cast to the wind blown shoreline. We still have a couple openings if you want to get a trip in.  Jason Feldner Cell: 701-351-1294

5/26/2012 Fishing Report
Well despite this cold front with a high of 50 degrees we managed to catch fish. Water temps dropped to 50 to 55 degrees. In return we stopped casting cranks and plastic and went to slip Bobbering shore lines. The pike are s very active. With the warmer temps this next week I think we will be back to 50 fish days.

5/17/2012 Fishing Report
After a slow week of fishing the bug hatch is about over and the fishing really picked up. Pitching lead heads and plastics along wind blown shorelines has been best for us. The afternoons seem to be a little better fishing than the mornings. Anglers are having good luck shore fishing for walleyes the last two hours of day light. Water temps are in the high 50's and the fishing is just heating up.

5/7/2012 Fishing Report
Well the Walleye are wrapping up there spawn. We had some great fishing this spring mainly on rocky shorelines, The males where thick. I think its going to be a great season. We had no run off this spring so that meant no current coming into the lake this spring. In return we didn't have a huge number of fish head north. So that means they stayed in the main part of the lake so it should be a great season. Everything we are catching is less than four foot of water. Lead heads and sliders (plastics) have been the best for me. Bring a lot of tackle the pike are on fire. I'll be doing a lot more fishing in the next week or so so stay tuned.

4/11/2012 Fishing Report
Well the ice left us one month earlier than last year. WOW! the pike have spawned out and the walleyes should start around the week of the 20th. With the early ice out I predict that we are going to have a great May for fishing unlike the last two years where it was hit and miss. We have been out a few times for the pre-spawn bite and it has been good. Some big females and some nice eater males. The shore fishing has been hit and miss from what I hear but pretty good. Channel A and the coulee bridges along with church's ferry have been the best. I hear since the pike have spawned they are really heating up. I will get back to fishing and get you guys another report soon.

Well fishing was a little more hit and miss this last week with all the front but still managed to get some good fish. Here are some pics for you to check out. Also looks like some really warm weather coming in, should make for some great fishing. 

3/06/2012 Fishing Report
Fishing still remains good, these guys from Iowa got there limit of perch over the weekend:-), the ice is in great shape. 30 inches. We did get about 5 inches of snow but that will be short lived with the warmer weather coming. We still have a couple days open in March if you want to cash in on some fishing.

3/01/2012 Fishing Report
Perch fishing this last week has been very good. The perch have been going at all depths any where from 18 to 50ft. East devils lake and the main lake have been the best. Walleye fishing this last week was a little slower than the past. I guess the perch made up for it. Here's some pictures of the last couple groups we had in.  Jason Feldner  Home: 701-473-2533  Cell: 701-351-1294 Or  701-351-8170  - percheyedl@yahoo.com

2/27/2012 Fishing Report
Scott Beshorners group managed to get 200 perch and around 35 walleyes and a hand full of pike on the 3 day adventure with Perch Eyes. We had a little weather system come through while they where here and the fishing stayed strong. The rest of the week looks to be warming so the fishing should stay good. We have just a few open dates left for the winter do if you want to get something set up for next year give us a call. Good fishing to you all. 

2/24/2012 Fishing Report
Fishing still remains good:) these guys from MN had there limit of eyes and 30 perch to go with them and one tipping the scale at 2 pounds. The walleyes are still biting on shoreline structure and mid lake humps. The perch are biting from one end of the lake to the other. Depths from 10 to 50 feet of water. Get of the edge of the structure and start drilling holes. We still have some dates in March open of you want to make the trip out.

2/18/2012 Fishing Report
Fishing remains strong. Here are some pictures from the last 3 days. The action for the walleye is only about the first hour of the day. Jogging Lindy Rattle'n flyers tipped with a minnow head has been working well along with tip ups tipped with a plain hook and a large fat head minnow. Perch action is good but slow. I'm saying this because you get little spurts during the day sometime you'll fish for a hour with nothing and bam you'll get 5 in 5 min. And then you sit and wait again. We have tried drilling g a 100 holes but it seems you catch more by sitting still still have a few openings yet this winter.

2/14/2012 Fishing Report
Steve Bouwmen and his son spent a day on the lake with us and hit the perch. They had 6 walleyes, 2 pike and there 40 perch. Great job guys. Fishing slowed a a little but rebounded nice. It seem like every part of the lake is producing fish deep to shallow it's just one of those winters.  Good luck to all and we hope we can be a part of your next trip to Devils Lake.

02/11/2012 Fishing Report
Well as you can see these lady's from WI. Had some good fishing despite the full moon this last week. The walleye fishing has been good but the window of for catching is short but sweet.  Perch fishing this week was a touch slower. I think The reason is the cold weather. The reason I say this is when it was warmer we could get out and hole jump. When its cold everyone wants to stay put and warm. This next week is going to get in the upper 20's so the catch rate will go up. We still have just a few openings left if you still want to make a trip out. The ice is 22 to 24 inches and no snow so conditions are great.

02/03/2012 Fishing Report
Well despite all the fog this week the fishing was still good. Nothing fast but just enough to keep you interested. These guys had a great day with a limit of walleyes and 34 perch one tipped the scale at 2.09 pounds a true lunker.

One good thing about having a few days off we got out and scout fished and found some new perch and walleye spots. Jigging lindy flyers tipped with minnow heads are working best for perch and walleye this week. Lake Ervin seems to be the place to fish this winter. For those of you that don't know the area lake Ervin is connected to Devils Lake. Walleyes seem to be biting every place you go you just have to weed through the little ones. We still have a few openings yet this winter with some of the best yet to come. GO PACKERS:))))

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. – As a full time guide, Jason Feldner spends over 200 days a year on Devils Lake, his favorite body of water. To say he’s in tune with its seasonal walleye migration is a severe understatement. But when the ice finally receded on Devils this spring, even he struggled with the high-water conditions.

After coming up empty in his traditional honeyholes, Feldner finally gave up and began treating Devils as a new body of water. Some of his favorite trees had been ripped away by the ice and other productive areas suddenly had an additional five feet of water on them. It took some time, but the Minnewaukan, N.D., native finally figured it out. He started putting his clients on good fish and then a few months later the FLW Walleye Tour rolled into town.

Most of the Tour pros started practice by returning to their favorite trees. Just like Feldner and other locals learned months earlier, this is a different Devils Lake. The bobber bite was off altogether and the crankbait bite was just so-so.

Feldner was dialed in from the start. On day one he caught a limit weighing 17 pounds, 15 ounces – taking over a lead he would never relinquish. Days two and three were more difficult, but he still managed sizeable stringers – 15-2 and 15-13 to be precise.

“I was pulling Lindy spinners in Pelican Lake in 9 to 12 feet of water,” said Feldner. “The blades I’m using just came out at ICAST a few weeks ago. Bluegill, perch and fathead minnow were my main three patterns. Fathead minnow was better in the sun and perch and bluegill were good when it was cloudy.”

Earlier in the week, Feldner also mixed in the new Lindy Shadling, but on the final day all of his keepers came on the spinners. Behind those blades was a two-hook crawler harness.

“I was fishing the bottom of the water column and trolling at approximately 1 to 1.5 mph.”

The bite was slow early Saturday. In fact, Feldner’s first two spots, the same areas that produced nearly all of his opening-round weight, were void of fish.

“We had nothing in the livewell at 11 a.m. Then we moved to our third spot, a spot I’d been saving for the finals, and finally we found active fish. We had one 400- to 500-yard stretch where we caught all eight. At about noon, the big kicker hit. In those two hours, I bet we caught 20 or so. Once they turn on, they turn on. And you’ve got to be in the right place at the right time.”

With the addition of optional pot money the 37-year-old earned $17,750.

2nd YEAR LUND PRO JASON FELDNER TAKES HOME TITLE 2007

Congratulations go out to Lund Pro Jason Feldner and his fishing partner Chris Koth on their $30,000 win at the Lowrance Pro Team Walleye Circuit Championship held at Devil’s Lake, ND August 22-24, 2007. 

Jason and Chris are both from Minnewauken, ND and guide on Devil’s Lake year round. This makes two wins in as many years for Jason on Devil’s Lake. Jason also took the title of “Champion” home when he won the 2006 Professional Walleye Trail event at Devil’s.

Jason and Chris lead after the first two days of competition with a total of 23.74 lbs. In the Lowrance Pro Team format, only the top 13 teams advance to the final day and all teams start over at 0.00 lbs. On day 3, it took Jason and Chris only eleven minutes to put a limit of walleyes in the boat. They estimated those 5 to weigh about 22 lbs.

North Dakota is a no cull state, so you can put eight fish in your livewell and weigh your biggest five. Once you put your 8th fish in the livewell you must quit fishing and return to the weigh-in location. It only took them another hour to add three more fish in the 6-7 lb. range to complete their day of fishing by 9:30 a.m. and allowed them to weigh a final day five fish limit of 31.29 lbs! What an amazing catch.

Jason and his wife Shelle own and operate Percheyes guide service out of Minnewauken. He has also been featured on John Gillespie’s Waters and Woods TV show shown on Fox Sports North.


2006 WALLEYE TOURNEY
      I had a chance to fish my first PWT walleye tourney this year and ended up winning it on my first try. The first day I came in at 10:30 am with 28 pounds of walleye for five fish, I was in second place. Day two I came in at 11:00 am with 26 pounds of walleye to hold myself in second place. Day three took me all day to catch 21.42 pounds to put me in first place and to win the tourney with a 7 pound gap between me and second place. It was awesome! My three day total was a little over 75 pounds of Walleye for 15 fish. I guess all that time on the water paid off.
