Head west young man head west! Lol I decided to venture out west of Bismarck yesterday in search of walleyes and perch. I picked Danzig Dam as my destination of choice.
Stocking reports look good and it’s a lake I spent lots of time on as a youngster. Sweetbriar, Crown Butte, Fish Creek and Danzig were all high school destinations for me. I had also been given some decent reports from this little lake so off I went.
The lake was smaller than I remembered it. Amazing how things as you get older tend to change like that. I picked an area near the dam to start in a deeper pocket. Fish were present right away! Nothing huge but action with a mix of perch and walleyes.
I decided that wasn’t good enough for me, so I began moving around looking for a better bite. The old saying goes, never leave fish to find fish, but today I was in scout mode for some upcoming guide trips I have.
I didn’t have a great day after I moved off my first spot. Of course I decided to go back to where I began. I was running out of time but managed a few more walleyes and perch. Nothing huge but probably could have had a good little meal.
The water or the lake isn’t very deep at all. The deepest I could personally find was 8 foot but my reports were fish being caught in 10 feet of water but also up along the shore and the island in 5 foot.
Lindy frosty and the Lindy glow spoon was my lure of choice. I’m headed to Sakakawea to spear, so I will report on that yet and I also am guiding a group this weekend and will report on that as well. If your interstate in an ice fishing or spear fishing trip please don’t hesitate to get ahold of me! 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...
