I promised a Devils Lake Walleye Report after my perch report yesterday. I feel bad that some folks were giving us a hard time for keeping some of those perch. Some we kept because they wouldn’t have survived coming up from deeper water. To be very honest with everyone I hardly keep fish for myself throughout a season. Perch are by far my favorite to eat, so for us keeping a few 8 to 10 inch perch that otherwise would not make it I’m not going to apologize for. When we ate a pile of them Saturday night I didn’t feel bad. I just kept on looking for the perfect bite, and I’m pretty sure I had lots of them.

Now on to the nuts and bolts of this Walleye Fishing Report. Of course both the early morning and late evening were the best! Now, before you go saying I’m only telling you this because I’m sponsored by Lindy. I have to tell you we used the new “Lindy Glow Spoons” this weekend and holy moly did they perform well! We found them to work extremely well early and later for obvious reasons. One trick we figured out was after the glow stick is in the cold water for a bit, they begin to lose their brightness. So we simply put them in our hands blew hot air on them and they instantly regained their glow.

Most walleyes were caught on any type of push up out on the lake. We caught them on all of the bumps we fished! As shallow as 8 and as deep as 23 we caught them this past weekend. We caught and released a handful of fish between 22 to 26 inches as well. The walleyes were pretty aggressive cruising in to check out our Lindy Glow Spoons and a few jiggles and BAM! Fish on! Just something about that aggressive strike that keeps us coming back for more!

Also, if your looking to do some spearing or what I refer as bow hunting on ice I’ll be setting shacks very very soon! This is an affordable way to spend the day watching underwater TV. Please email me or text me to book your spearing adventure on Sakakawea! 701-471-8649 or email me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.

I will also have another ice fishing report for some other lakes coming soon!

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...

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?...

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...

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...
