I know our open water days are limited. The long range forecast does have a couple nice days in there, but it’s definitely turning colder and my brain is slowly shifting to the hard water season.

The fish are still biting on the river however. It seems the fish are really mixed together as far as size goes. Early this week we saw slot of small fish showing up. It was crazy to fish certain areas and catch a 12 incher one drift and a 22 incher the next. It did seem as the day would warm up the fishing and the fish would get better.

No secret here, we fished north land 1/4 oz jigs no bodies with a threaded on minnow. Yellow with a red eye seemed to out fish every other jig we put down. Fish are still relatively shallow. 3 to 10 foot of water behind sandbars is holding most of the fish. Guys are pulling cranks on the outsides of the sandbars and catching a lot of fish.

I’m hoping to get out a few more times yet as the weather permits. I am working hard off the water booking ice fishing trips, and getting all my ice fishing equipment put together. Lots of work to do to be ready, but I love every minute of it. We are also gearing up for the darkhouse spearing on Sakakawea. I have all that information on my website www.mikepelusooutdoors.com

If you are thinking of joining me this winter on the ice get ahold of me so we can pencil you in. We can handle groups of any size! Devils Lake should be fantastic this coming winter season.

Ice Fishing Report-December 26th, 2021

Well, to a few people these reports suck. I do need to remind everyone, I DO NOT get paid to post a report. I merely do it to help folks gather a little information before venturing out. I will say this, the positive feedback I get, outweighs the negative. So for...

Ice ice baby was the famous vanilla ice song. As the lyrics go, we are making ice in the northern tier of the state. I would say we are a bit behind on the ice development, but in areas it's happening! I spent much of the later portion of this week roaming around the...
