When we have winter climate 10 out of 12 months of the year, the opportunity for ice fishing is larger than regular fishing. Have you ever wondered where the best spots are to go?

According to an article by Killeen Gonzalez, these are your top 5 ice fishing spots.

  1. Devil's Lake. Your number one place to go ice fishing in North Dakota houses large perch, walleye, northern pike, and white bass. There are also a couple places for lodging if you want to fish multiple days. The rooms do cost money to rent, though. But with over 16,000 acres to fish at, you can't pass this opportunity up.
  2. Lake Renwick. This lake is just off of Highway 5 in the Icelandic State Park. It's a great place to go if you're looking for a ton of northern pike. If you want to fish a couple days, you may need to consider that there aren't a lot of lodging spots nearby.
  3. Lake Metigoshe. This lake is located north east of Bottineau and holds tons of walleye, perch, and northern pike. You also have the option of renting a cabin or other accommodations. This park does have an entry fee and fees for staying overnight, though.
  4. Lake Sakakawea. This lake houses salmon, trout, perch, walleye, crappie, and northern pike and is located in Garrison. There's also a couple locations to lodge - one being a cabin.
  5. Lake Audubon. This lake is filled with smallmouth bass, pearch, and wallye and has great lodging options if you want to stay for a couple nights. Head north from Coleharbor (about 20 minutes from Garrison) to find this lake.

Do you have a secret ice fishing spot you think is as good or better than these? What is it?
