Devils Lake walleyes fall for jigs and slip bobbers

Email

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — Dustin Larson had a game plan to put walleyes in the boat on this early June morning: Pitch jigs and soft plastic tails along the edge of a shallow flooded shoreline and cover water.

If that didn’t work, he’d cover even more water by putting the motor in gear and trolling crankbaits.
