Well, the weather is playing havoc on all my personal fishing plans. However I’ve had clients taking advantage of the Darkhouse Spearing.
I’d say we are kind of in that period of the winter where things are slower. We are still seeing fish. Contrary to popular belief you don’t spear everything you see.
A few fish have come in hot! If you have never experienced a pike hitting your decoy it’s something else. The worst part is when your outside your shack and you hear it happen lol yeah that may have happened this week.
I would say the spearing is still better than average. We had a 15 pounder and a few smaller fish that were harvested. The 15 pounder is already in the pickle jars I guess and the smaller Pike are headed to the grease. If you haven’t eaten a Northern Pike your missing out! If you go to my YouTube page I have a video out there showing how to clean these tasty morsels boneless. They get a bad rap but once you get good at cleaning them they are an excellent eating fish.
The spearing on Lake Sakakawea right now is being done in 8 to 12 foot of water. The clarity is really good right now. Obviously the sunny days are better with the snow cover on the lake. It’s getting a bit tougher to get around but we are managing ok. I think things are going to get tougher but we are working hard to keep the road open to our shacks.
If your looking to try this unique experience get ahold of me! All the hard work is done and all you have to do is take a seat and watch the under water world and wait for s big gator to take your breath away! Mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com or messenger me!

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...

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...
