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 got a chance to spend sometime on Devils Lake this past week. Between driving, fishing, trying to mow yards, and fixing things, I was extremely busy.
Another thing that was busy was the walleye bite, white bass bite, and for me a few northern pike. Not sure what is going on worth the pike but they are definitely not all over the place like previous years. You had to move around quite a bit to find the active fish. To be honest I think you can pick whatever your flavor is to catch walleyes and catch them on Devils Lake right now. The water is pretty clear right now so look for the stained or dirtier water to increase your catch rates.
Lots of 14 to 17 inch walleyes are being caught. In my personal opinion those are the best keepers and eaters you can find.
On a side note I heard on the news that they have closed the road to get into Mikes lake up there. So if you were planning on fishing on Mikes you will have to change your plans. Not sure if this is temporary or not but just a heads up for everyone.
I’m headed back to Sakakawea now, so I will have a report coming up from up there here in the near future. I have July and August dates available so if your looking to get on the water get ahold of me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com Hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying the start of the summer!

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...
