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!

I’m in the busy stretch of the guiding season Right now and loving it. With me jumping back and forth from Lake Sakakawea and Devils Lake these past couple of weeks it’s sometimes hard to keep up.
I do have to admit the fishing has been pretty good considering the weather conditions we have had. Warm to cold, flat calm to gusty, blue skies to thunderstorms and everything in between usually doesn’t equate to good fishing. For some reason though the fishing has been really good.
With the weather going up and down like a toilet seat, we have adjusted our fishing tactics accordingly on Devils Lake.
Fish are starting to show up on main basin type structure. Depth hasn’t been been all that important. Seems like you can catch them in all depths right now depending on the day. We are pulling rigs and spinners with both leeches and crawlers. One change I made this year is I have swapped out all my bouncers with quick swaps. I’m absolutely loving the ease of changing them out, getting them out of snags and the fish catching ability. I see so many other possibilities with them also that I’m excited to try here as the season progresses.
So with me bouncing back and forth here I’ll also be giving you another Sakakawea Fishing Report. also between percheyes.com and mikepelusooutdoors.com we do have trips available if your looking to fish either lake. So don’t hesitate to get ahold of us and book a trip!

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...
