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.

Mid Week Fishing Report-August 31st, 2022

This mid week fishing report I'm going to change course just a tad. With my recent cancellations, it has given me an opportunity to pre scout the upper stretches of the Missouri River near my hometown of Bismarck, ND. I like to get out on the river a few times early...

ND Fishing Report-August 28th, 2022

ND Fishing Report-August 28th, 2022

Not much has changed from the mid week fishing report. Sakakawea and Devils for the most part have stayed the same. Aim Walleye and the Last Chance tournaments were both held on Sakakawea and the results tell tell the tale. Fishing up on Lake Sakakawea remains insane!...

Mid Week Fishing Report-August 24th, 2022

Posting the mid week fishing report a tad later in the day than normal. I apologize for that, lots going on this week with cancellations, bookings, school starting and yes…fishing. Fishing up on Lake Sakakawea remains insane! I keep waiting for a major slow down, but...

ND Fishing Report-August 21, 2022

ND Fishing Report-August 21, 2022

Hard to believe it's late August already. Kids are back in school, football season is starting, and the seasons are about to change. This means a few things for me. One, I don't stop guiding. In fact, I'm guessing since I guide the Missouri River spring and fall,...

Mid Week Sakakawea Fishing Report-  August 17th, 2022

Mid Week Sakakawea Fishing Report- August 17th, 2022

Mid week fishing report is all Sakakawea! The place just continues to be a top walleye producing body of water. To be honest with you it kinda scares me how good it has been. I hope the Game and Fish take a good hard look at it this off season to determine if more...

Lake Sakakawea & Devils Lake Fishing Report-August 14th, 2022

Lake Sakakawea & Devils Lake Fishing Report-August 14th, 2022

I split this week between Lake Sakakawea and Devils Lake. I've talked about this in the past how guiding on 3 different bodies of water help make me a better fisherman and guide. You can not get complacent and have to stay on top of things. Especially during the dog...
