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!

So I’ve been a little slower than usual on writing a fishing report. One reason is I’ve been grinding hard guiding, another reason would be the fishing has been pretty tough.
I’m going to write this report on Devils Lake. I do have a few reports from some others areas and if you want some information on that just email me and I can help you out on that.
We have pretty much been all over the Devils Lake region fishing for both walleyes and perch. Some days are good and others are tough. We are catching fish and keeping our clients happy. Unfortunately, it’s not keeping us guides very happy because it’s forcing us to move a ton trying to locate the next best bite.
I’d say the walleyes have been the most consistent over these last color of weeks. Again, structure being the key to catching eyes on Devils Lake right now. Buckshots with both full minnows and minnow heads working best for us. Water depths seem to vary depending on where your at on the lake.
As far as the perch are concerned, we are still waiting for them to gather up and get into a major school. This has yet to happen and is creating tough at times fishing. When you get a small school to flare up you can catch them and you catch some really nice ones mixed in. Tungsten and wax worms have been the best in 30 to 45 foot of water and also a small minnow on a tiny hook held really close to the bottom is also catching a few.
I know it’s hard to believe but I’ll be opening up the open water walleye season starting March 15th on the Tailrace region north of Bismarck. As soon as the open water hits near town I will begin guiding that. Please if your looking to book don’t hesitate! Last spring got extremely busy and I anticipate it getting busy again especially how good it’s going to be! Contact me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com and let’s book a trip! I’m also renting out spear houses if your interested and my clients have speared some quality fish!

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...
