Once again the big lake is still kicking all a lot of nice fish. Things are getting a little tight lipped up here on the Sakakawea right now simply because the end of the year Aim state championship is right around the corner. Probing sand looking around the lake doesn’t always equate to a lot of fish, but we are still finding nice fish in all different depths including extremely extremely deep water. It’s going to be super interesting to see what all these teams uncover in the next week or so on the lake. It is amazing to me and no matter what somebody always finds a big batch of fish somewhere, especially on a lake that is 178 miles long by 6 miles wide. A 20 incher average used to be considered good, but my guess is we will need 22 and up to even be in the game. These guide fish we had today came out of 32 foot of water on the steady go to presentation of a slow death hook, half crawler and a bottom bouncer. Another great day on the water catching fish! If your interested in fishing with me or my group mjsguides.com please get ahold of us and book a date. We have some really good time slots available coming up. The bite should actually continue to get bettter as fall closed near. We will also be booking trips on Lake Oahe and the Missouri River here heading into fall. Last but not least if you get a chance to watch my YouTube videos please like, share and subscribe! We are trying to grow that area of the website to help people catch more fish and to also keep people up to speed on the fishing here in ND! Until next time, keep the line tight and the rod tip up!

Lake Sakakawea Fishibg Report-August 7th, 2022

Being back on Sakakawea has been fun! Honestly for me, I love being able to guide on both of North Dakota's big bodies of water this time of year. It keeps you on your toes and I feel I'm a better guide because of it! No time to get complacent. The fish are moving...

Mid Week Fishing Report- August 3rd, 2022

Back on Sakakawea this week certainly isn't a let down. This lake has been on fire since the very beginning this year and hasn't let up a bit. The fish are moving around some. You can still find some really nice fish up shallow. Just need to be a tad more patient with...

Devils Lake Fishing Report- July 31st, 2022

It's been good! Bug hatches, tons of new food like baby perch and white bass, lots of fresh water shrimp, yet the walleyes on Devils Lake just continue to bite! What's working? Well, it's Devils Lake. Seems like whatever you like to use will work! What's working best?...

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 27th, 2022

So I've been up on Devils Lake now for over a week. Lots of different weather, a couple more bug hatches, and a really strong walleye bite. I get asked to compare or I get asked what lake is better? Totally not a fair question to ask. I just tell folks they are both...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 24th, 2022

I reluctantly left Lake Sakakawea earlier this week to travel east to Devils Lake. All the Rage (no pun intended) lol has been on how good the fishing has been on both bodies of water. I'm here to tell you Devils Lake is holding its own. Both bodies of water have been...

Mid Week Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report-July 20th, 2022

If Lake Sakakawea was a movie, I think we could call it Groundhogs Day. Nothing has changed really with the mood of the fish. They are still eating! They are a bit more scattered as far as depth is concerned. Some days it just doesn't matter, but the bulk of the...
