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!

It’s here!! Open water is here in Bismarck and it is here to stay! Ramps are pushed, ice is gone, and hopefully the walleyes will begin to filter north.

I’ve only been out twice since returning to Bismarck after guiding on the ice all winter on Devils Lake. A few things to note is the water is extremely low! This is gonna make navigation and launching a tad difficult. Another important thing to remember especially launching in the early mornings right now is to drain your trailer before pulling it up the ramp.

So I’ve been rigging boats here the past week trying to get things ready to start guiding. I decided to fix up a smaller boat for my one and two person trips. So my fishing has been a little limited. I have however caught a few fish. Nothing fancy, caught a couple slipping the current and also pulling jigs upstream really slow.

The ramps I have used or know of people using are fox island, interstate, misty waters, graners, hazelton, Wilton and Washburn. All are decent and you can get your normal bigger rigs in. I’m gonna be hitting it hard started this coming Tuesday. So lots of good up to date reports will be coming your way!

I have a few openings in April yet plus two other guides we can line you up with. I also have openings in May. So if your looking for some early spring time on the water, let me know!

If you follow me on my Snapchat you know there are two things I absolutely hate. One is the beet juice they use on our streets in Bismarck in the winter, the other is wind. As you can guess by the time of year, I haven't been complaining about the beet juice yet. The...

Ok, if someone has the controls for the fan you can dial it back a bit. I just spent the last 3 days at Devils Lake and now I'm pretty sure 60 plus of those hours were winds over 15 mph and as much as 30. Definitely wears on a guide. Even though the wind blew, the one...

Transition is definitely the word to use right now up here on Lake Sakakawea. If you are to ask 10 boats how things are going on the water up here, you will get all kinds of different answers. Some will say it was good. Some will say it was a little slow, and some...

      Boy I honestly don’t know. The water is super low and the ramps down that way are unusable. You would probably have to put in with the crowds and run south.
