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!

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.

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 26th, 2022

It's been a spring to remember. Actually, scratch that, it's one to forget. For a lack of a better term, it's been downright sh#%tty. I can only think of two days so far this spring, since the river opened up March 19th where it was nice out. Of course this has been a...

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...
