Despite less than ideal fishing conditions on Devils Lake, anglers are still flocking to the area. Anglers at Woodland Resorts on Devils Lake weren't having much luck Thursday.

Owner Kyle Blanchfield says the bite has usually been good, but that it's hit or miss lately. But drastically changing temperatures this winter have made fishing more difficult. While severe weather has kept a few anglers away from the lake, Blanchfield says business is still booming and it's the busiest ice fishing season ever for him.

Woodland Resorts owner Kyle Blanchfield said, "We've had folks not able to get here, and stuff like that, but we've had a boomer year. I'm real happy with how it's been going."

Ice fishing season isn't close to being over yet. Ice on Devils Lake is about 35 inches thick right now. Blanchfield says there will likely be enough ice to extend the season into spring.
