I know it’s hard to believe but I’m closing in on the end of the ice fishing season up here on Devils Lake. As I write this report I’m one month and a day away from my last trip on the hard stuff.
It’s been a good first full time winter for me. I’ve learned a ton being out on the ice daily chasing these gilled and finned creatures. The past few weeks the perch have kinda started to bunch up a little making them a tad bit more responsive. The walleyes have been really consistent this winter and the future of walleye fishing on Devils is looking good! The one fish I’m a bit mystified with is the lack of pike we are catching and seeing? We kinda noticed this last summer. The northern pike didn’t seem to be as abundant, at least in the areas we were concentrating on.
The report up here doesn’t, or hasn’t really changed. The perch are being caught out deep using using tungsten and waxies. The walleyes are on any type of structure, using buckshots and minnows. The pike 🤷‍♂️ if you have a report please send it my way.
Now, with just a month left to go, I’ll be switching gears immediately to open water guiding. I had lots of clients last spring take advantage of booking me for both Tailrace and also the Bismarck area Missouri River. I’m hoping, and judging by the emails and texts we should be busy again! I’ll be starting up March 15th! So if you are looking at getting in on an early walleye bite, especially maybe before your waters open up, or your season opens up, please get in touch with me and book your trips so you don’t miss out. I can accommodate groups of any size! I’ll have a major announcement coming very soon I think everyone will be excited about it interested in! To book a trip for the upcoming season please 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...
