As promised I said I would be able to bring you a wind, I mean fishing report from Sakakawea. The wind, um fishing has been ok to good on Sakakawea here as of late.
The wind has played a huge part on where I have been fishing. I spent time on the east end, middle and also up in the hook this week so far. Again, trying to play the wind and be able to fish. The wind has played a major role in the water temps so pay close attention to those! Another factor to consider is the June run off has started. Pushing water levels up of course does a few things. One it can cool the water temps down and it can also push fish back into the bays.
It’s seems a lot of fish are hanging near the major points heading out of the bays. Do t be surprised this week if all of the sudden a lot of fish begin moving back into the bays with the rising water.
Water depths have varied all week. Again I believe it has everything to do with our abundant winds we have been having here as of late. To say I’m sick of the wind would be a huge understatement.
Fish are being caught on all presentations. Jigs, rigs, slow death, cranks are all working right now. Pay close attention to your electronics the fish you are looking for will be pretty obvious and they are hanging near or under the massive clouds of baitfish.
I’d say quality over quantity right now on a lake Sakakawea for sure. This past week we have seen a few pushing over 28 to 30 inch mark and those fish are all still swimming to be caught again hopefully by you in my boat 😉. If your looking for a trip I have dates available now in July and August on the big pond of Sakakawea. Email me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com to book your trip!

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...
