Meet Your Fishing Guide

Mike Peluso

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!

I spent the last few days of this holiday and my birthday weekend combing the south stretch of the this massive body of water. Lots going on to say the least with super high water with current and forage always make for an interesting trip trying to figure it out. An interesting game it will be for both the Casino Cup and next springs Aim National Walleye Championship. Lots of water for these boys to cover including myself who grew up on this resivoir. Deep everything and main river channel is always a major player down here. Be prepared to lose a ton of tackle!  This system goes from super low to super high and changed constantly. Lots of flooded cottonwood trees and diamond willow. And yes the fish love these things just about as much as the trees love our lures. Quite a few fish around in that 16 to 19 inch range. I’m finding it interesting that the fish down here are a tad bit skinnier than the fish up in the river system towards the north. But with the higher flows we have had all summer, again nothing is normal. I’m still taking bookings at a discounted rate until October 31st on the Missouri River System. Call or text me at(701) 471-8649 or email me off the website! I anticipate a good bite all the way to freeze up! You hunters coming into the state of your looking to kill an evening or two after your hunts, let’s dump the boat in the river and chase some scales for a few hours!

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...
