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!

Hard to believe the Big Muddy has come and gone already this spring. Probably because we never really had a spring. Lots of major weather events that definitely got in the way.

I feel good about how things played out. Even though I didn’t fish the tournament, I was definitely in tune with what was happening and what took place. For me as a full time guide this is important to me. Sometimes when you get stuck in guide mode you can miss out a little.

So for me once the Big Muddy is over things kinda slow down out on the river. Sakakawea is gonna turn on fire here quickly, and people will spread out and to be honest a lot of guys lose interest in the river now. I’ll continue to guide the river until the end of May. After that it’s back in the Van for the Van Hauling my boat around the state tour lol.

What to expect on the river here the next week or so? You will still find a random big fish mixed right in with some very spirited males. You can catch them pretty much anyway you like to catch fish. If you have kids that you want to get out, put the crankbaits down along the sandbars and hold on. Lots of action which is fun!

I’ve had a few schedule changes here as of late so I do have a few openings if you are looking to get out on the water. Also want to congratulate the top finishers in this years Big Muddy! Perman, Eismen, Steele you guys earned it and you guys will now be considered the Big Muddy Kings!

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 20th, 2022

Sorry, I completely forgot to post my mid week fishing report. I had it all written and life must have got in the way and I forgot to hit publish. The fishing has been very little as of late. I'm trying to get out to stay on top of things, but the blizzard slowed me...

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 17th, 2022

So we dug out of this late spring snow here in Bismarck. We got anywhere from 18 to 20 inches of snow. To the north and west, they received a lot more. Now, as I wake up this Easter morning, and look out my window, we are getting yet another shot of snow. Maybe 2 to 4...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 13th, 2022

Holy moly we got snow, and it's still falling as I write this report! I said it in a few interviews this week, for us this is a short term loss for hopefully a long term gain with the moisture. I would expect our river system to be a tad messed up for about 2 weeks...

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 10th, 2022

The story remains the same out here on the Missouri River near Bismarck. Crappy weather, lots of wind, and some really nice fish. If you are watching the weather closely we are looking like we may have a major setback starting this coming Tuesday. Reports are early,...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 6th, 2022

If somebody knows how to shut this fan off, can you please get ahold of me with directions. Wow is all I can say this past few days. The tough part for me is I don't see a break from the wind for a few more days yet. In between the wind gusts we are catching some...

Finally! I'm back into full open water guide mode here on the Missouri River near Bismarck. Spring is kinda here, if you look outside my window today, it would be easy to argue that it's winter, but we definitely need the moisture. So I have lots to talk about in this...
