Things have straightened out here a bit the last few days on the a Missouri River here near Bismarck. Still catching a few walleyes with eggs in them, but most of the big girls have spawned.
Some of these big fish are still around. They are in what I call a healing pattern. You see em laying on the bottom on your electronics resting. Hard to get them to eat, but every now and again they take a whack at your jigs or crankbaits.
The males are starting to show up in decent numbers. You will find these active males hanging in the current or right along the current seams. The males will get aggressive here as the water continues to warm up. This is a great time to get kids or newbies out on the water for a little fishing action.
My Missouri River reports are going to slow down here a bit. I have a couple solid weeks out here yet before I will begin to shift my attention to Devils Lake and Lake Sakakawea. I know some folks have had trips altered to go to Canada and stuff to fish. Now would be a great time to secure a trip with myself or the guys I work with on Devils Lake or Sakakawea.
If your looking to get out and chase these River eyes yet please don’t hesitate to get ahold of me. I’m also booking Devils and Sakakawea at this time as well! I’m taking extra cautions sanitizing everything daily and being outside on the water is about as safe as it gets during these tough times. Look for Sakakawea and Devils Lake reports to begin here soon! Until next time, let’s go fishing! mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com

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

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

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...
