I went about 12 years ago, 1st week of March. We used a private guide. There was still 19" of ice. The problem was getting onto the ice with the 4-wheelers. The edges wanted to open up. If you go in Jan or Feb. they are using full sized trucks to get around. When we went, Devils lake was slow, so we ended up about 60 miles south on Alkaline lake. Caught a lot of perch. They ran about 11" on average. We shipped 80#s of filets home overnight UPS. There was only 2 of us plus the guides, this was a two day total. We fileted for 6 straight hours. At that time there was no limit on perch. There is a daily limit now, and from everything I have read the last couple of years, the Walleye fishing is even better than the perch fishing. Keep us posted, I am ready for a road trip.
