It’s been an interesting year on the ice so far this winter. We seem to be jamming all the seasons into a week. Cold, super cold, super warm, back to cold in such short windows of time. This raises hell with the ice, ridges, snow drifts and the bite.
I will say this, a person really needs to use caution! The area of Lake Oahe I’ve been on has ice anywhere from 14 inches to 3 inches. Yes, you read that correctly. I have an area I have been going and where I have been driving a lot. That ice is just fine. I needed to run back to where I parked my truck to grab buns and drinks for my girls. Of course I’m in an area way off the beaten path so I decided to take a short cut instead of following my trail. With the warm weather there are slush pockets and I hit one! I was fine but I did drop the front wheels of the 4 wheeler in.
With that I will advise caution if you decide to go down onto Lake Oahe. Yes, it’s not the safest place to go if you haven’t been down there at the moment. The fish are doing the normal Oahe routine. Right off the main river channel. Just like I have said in previous reports google earth is your friend to find subtle things or changes that will attract fish. Don’t be afraid to get aggressive with these fish! They seem to accommodate pretty much any presentation you throw at them and when they are on they are on! River channel edge right around 30 foot of water has been best for me!
Also taking bookings for angling and spearing! Mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com #mikepelusooutdoors

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...
