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!

We are certainly closing in on ice fishing and rumors have it even a few people have ventured out. For me, I’m not quite that fired up to walk out on a couple inches of ice. I will however keep everyone informed on ice conditions as I find them or others report to me.
My first ice fishing guide trips as of now are starting mid December. Of course this can change to earlier or later depending on weather. Last year I had to move a few Darkhouse spearing trips back. I don’t anticipate this happening this season judging how our fall weather has been. Most of the small bodies of water across the state are locked up with ice. Some bays on Devils Lake and also on Lake Audubon are also frozen up. I think with the snow we received in October cooled our water temps down drastically. Kinda giving the ice making a jump start.
I will be mostly reporting from Devils Lake this winter since I’ll be guiding full time for Percheyes Guide Service out of Minnewaukan, ND. I will also have Darkhouse spearing available on Sakakawea and Devils Lake, and if things line, up I’ll dabble some on a few of the smaller lakes in Central ND, but most of my efforts this winter will be up on a Devils Lake both spearing and angling.
I’m still holding out some hope we will get a brief warm up in November to try and take advantage of the walleyes moving up on the Missouri River. The waters high, but the fish are here and right in the city limits of Bismarck-Mandan.
I will be updating these reports frequently as ice conditions continue to progress. I’ll also give you up to date fishing reports throughout the winter again just like I did the previous year.
If your looking at booking a trip, please feel free to message me on Facebook or email me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com and we can accommodate any size group both fishing and lodging!

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...
