North Dakota Fishing Destinations

From the Missouri River System, the Red River, and up to Devils Lake, we film a lot of great shows in North Dakota for a simple reason, the fishing is awesome. The Missouri River and Lake Sakakawea are favorite destinations for filming walleye shows. Devils Lake is our go-to ice fishing mecca where we get some of the most extraordinary walleye and perch footage possible, not to mention great open-water walleye material to use in our shows. The Red River is one of the most under-recognized trophy catfish water in the United States.


Devils Lake is one of the greatest ice fishing destinations in the Midwest for walleye, pike and perch but the open water walleye and pike fishing plus incredible waterfowl hunting opportunities makes this outdoor playground a must do. Jason Mitchell spent several years guiding on Devils Lake and earned a legendary reputation as a guide on this massive body of water. Unique open water patterns for walleye make this lake extremely enjoyable to film.
