Meet Your Fishing Guide

Mike Peluso

ABOUT MIKE PELUSO Mike Peluso is an infamous North Dakota fishing guide that’s well known throughout the state. Mike prides himself on being consistent, as well as versatile on any body of water he fishes. Mike guides year-round, so you can find him on the water or on the ice. Give Mike a call for your next fishing adventure!

So what does Devils Lake and Lake Sakakawea have in common right now? Well, they both have really good fishing right now. One lake is rising (Sakakawea) and one lake is lowering (Devils Lake) but both have awesome walleye population.
Devils Lake, at least for me the past few days has been really good. What do you like to do? If you want to bobber fish you can go through leeches by the pound in a hurry. Fish of all shapes and sizes are being caught. Find any type of structure like rocks or trees and bobber up. Catch a few or catch a pile. It seems about 1 out 5 is a really good fish. Spinners and slow death pulled on the structure is producing also with maybe a little better big fish ratio.
Overall we are super spoiled. I know many areas in the country where 14 to 16 inch walleyes are the best fish in the lake. Here we take those fish for granted. Those fish in my mind are the best eaters in the world and Devils Lake has a ton of them!
I’ll post a Lake Sakakawea report here in the next day or so. The water has risen and it has moved the fish a bit, but they are there and willing if the timing is right. I have openings in a August and September so feel free to email me at mikepelusooutdoors.@gmail.com

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...
