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!

With the Devils Lake Casino cup coming (no I’m not fishing it) I’ve been a little quieter than normal on my Facebook and fishing reports. I do have a few really good friends that are fishing it, so trying to hold the noise down a little.
The bite is heating up! Water temps on Devils Lake have been climbing steady and the walleye activity is also.
Casting cranks is still the go to tactic right now but bobbers are slowly starting to pull their weight. Especially in the later afternoons.
Weed growth and water clarity is the subtle things you really need to pay attention to right now. For some reason the lake is staying really clear this year in areas it’s normally a lot dirtier. Makes me think the lake being as high as it was for so long, and now dropping has changed the lake chemistry. We were just talking about this around the campfire the other night. So many areas that used to be a forrest on the water, is now all but gone with only a few some stumps remaining. You also can see a lot more rock on the shorelines since the higher water.
All in all I have to admit Devils Lake is a Walleye factory! The fishing is still top notch and in pretty good shape. If your looking to book a trip on Devils Lake either email me at or go to and we can get you lined up for some amazing fishing! A few more trips on Devils before I swing back to Lake Sakakawea. I’ll get everyone a report from both later this week! Most people say tight lines, I’ll go with keep your rod tip up and your stick on the ice!

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...

    Hi Mike: Dave and I fished with you this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I had a great time and enjoyed catching walleye and northern. I was surprised that they were in that depth of water. The white bass were great fun but far too numerous. I told my wife that you liked the cookies.
