Oh my is it getting tough to get around the lakes! I’m doing my best to keep roads to my spear shacks open enough to get to them. I have one angling house out close to Bismarck, but that’s even getting difficult to keep a good road to it.
It sounds like more snow is coming, so it’s going to make things interesting. Does anyone have a Sno-Bear or enclosed Cab with tracks they are willing to rent me for the month of March? Ha ha lol. I have a few trips scheduled in March on both on Sakakawea and Devils Lake and without having one or the other it’s going to be tough!
I highly recommend anyone going ice fishing right now that doesn’t have tracks of some kind to go in groups! Bring shovels, tow ropes, and chains. Use the push pull tactic to blaze a trail. It’s something we deal with periodically here in the Dakotas, but she’s pretty tough all over the upper Midwest.
I’m probably going to have to head out and buy a couple lottery tickets to see if I can win so I can buy something with tracks because they don’t give those things away lol. I do have skis and a tongue ski for my shacks, but it’s still going to be tricky getting around the lakes at least until the snow settles or until guys get out there with v-nose plows. Make sure you do your homework before heading out somewhere! I’ve had many trips over the years get ruined by getting stuck and spending a huge portion of the day digging out.
Again, I have Dark House Spearing still available and I can get to those shacks without trouble. The ice angling is getting tough, unless I can find someone who’s willing to rent me his Sno-Bear! Mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com if your interested in getting out spearing.

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

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

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...
