Well, had a couple guys back up at Sakakawea checking on ice for the spear shacks. Happy to say we have one spear shack set up and I will be bringing another one out this weekend. So if your interested in booking a day or two of Dark House Spearing we will be ready for you starting Monday! I’ll have the contact info at the bottom of this report.

They found a good 4 inches in a bay on the east end that I checked earlier this week, so it is encouraging for sure. A couple more cold nights and we should have a decent base back in the bays on Sakakawea. I’m going to spread the spear shacks out right away until we find good movement of Pike. The one thing I will say about spearing on Sakakawea is you have a shot at a 40 plus incher at any moment.  Just like sitting in a deer stand, you have to be there in order to get one. Super excited that we are finally up and running.

I decided to go the other direction and check Ice this morning. I stopped in a couple areas down on Lake Oahe. Found good ice east on Beaver Bay. 6 inches seemed average in that area. The main portion had roughly 3 to 4 inches in spots. Moved further south and found 2 to 3 inches around the State Line. So if you are planning on heading down that way this weekend please use caution. I’d recommend walking with picks and a spud bar.

I did not venture back to Cattail so if any of you readers have been in that area please message me and I will update and or leave a comment here and people can read it. Like I always say safety does not take the day off while ice fishing. Hopefully the same holds true down there, a few cold nights and we can get a good base built up.

So the spearing trips will begin next week! I will have another shack up sometime this weekend. I will send reports and pictures and updates as I go. If you want to give spearing a try please text me at 7014718649 or email me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com and I can get you all set up! Let me do the work so you can just sit and enjoy!

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...
