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!

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

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 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...
