Give Mike a call for your next fishing adventure!

I’m am super excited for this time of year!! We have so many options with hunting and fishing here in the North Dakota it gets frustrating sometimes when you have to pick on or the other. Well, with the high water here on the Missouri River near Bismarck the fish are already here. I won’t say these are huge fish but these are really good eating size fish! 14 to 16 inches seems to be the average with a pretty solid number of fish around. This isn’t the norm for this time of year but what the heck we will take an early jump on things here this fall! Normally we won’t see fish stating to show up near town until the end of September and sometimes not until mid October. I’m not sure what the Corp has in store for us as far as water this fall but if things remain as is and they don’t turn the valve off it will be an unreal fall! Like I put out earlier I’m offering a discounted Guide rate for the Missouri River and Lake Oahe starting September 1st until October 31st. If your venturing into our great state to chase waterfowl or upland game birds and want to mix the trip up a little this is your perfect opportunity to do so! Please feel free to contact me via text at 701-471-8649 or email me here on the website to book an evening trip or day trip. I’ll adjust rates accordingly to how long we fish and where we fish. It’s gonna be fun to feel these fiesty walleyes hitting a jig and minnow once again. There’s something so special about feeling these walleyes in the fall hitting jigs. I believe crankbaits, jig raps and Lindy rigs will also do well this fall on the river. I’ll be bringing you lots of river reports now until ice up so stay tuned. With high water just look for anything with reduced current and depth ranging from 7 to 15 foot.

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...
