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!

The fishing has shifted a little bit up here on Sakakawea due to some storms, heavy winds, and some shifting in currents and water temp. Once you relocate the water temps in what I’m calling their comfort zone it’s game on!

These fish are so healthy in this lake right now it’s incredible. The population of 16 to 18 inch fish is really impressive. I think it’s a feeding frenzy at times and it’s why we are still able to catch these fish even with an over abundance of food for them to eat.

The depths are trending a little deeper now. These fish will continue to slide out deeper and deeper as the water warms. I’d say average depth where a majority of fish that are being caught are in the 14 to 18 foot depth range. Again, wind and water clarity can have them up shallower and or out deeper. Just stagger your drifts or pulls and watch your electronics closely.

Slow death or regular live bait hooks with a half crawler and a colored bead is working well. The propeller rigs and also spinners are working good on days. I kinda run a mix of rigs each day to start. Seems like you will notice one thing out performing the rest. I’m not the brightest bulb on the tree, but when one lure is working I’m fairly quick to adjust.

I have a few openings yet I would love to fill and have you join me in the boat. If you want a stress free day on the water get ahold of me and let’s make some memories. The fishing is really good!

Mid Week Fishing Report-August 31st, 2022

This mid week fishing report I'm going to change course just a tad. With my recent cancellations, it has given me an opportunity to pre scout the upper stretches of the Missouri River near my hometown of Bismarck, ND. I like to get out on the river a few times early...

ND Fishing Report-August 28th, 2022

Not much has changed from the mid week fishing report. Sakakawea and Devils for the most part have stayed the same. Aim Walleye and the Last Chance tournaments were both held on Sakakawea and the results tell tell the tale. Fishing up on Lake Sakakawea remains insane!...

ND Fishing Report-August 21, 2022

Hard to believe it's late August already. Kids are back in school, football season is starting, and the seasons are about to change. This means a few things for me. One, I don't stop guiding. In fact, I'm guessing since I guide the Missouri River spring and fall,...

Mid Week Sakakawea Fishing Report- August 17th, 2022

Mid week fishing report is all Sakakawea! The place just continues to be a top walleye producing body of water. To be honest with you it kinda scares me how good it has been. I hope the Game and Fish take a good hard look at it this off season to determine if more...

Lake Sakakawea & Devils Lake Fishing Report-August 14th, 2022

I split this week between Lake Sakakawea and Devils Lake. I've talked about this in the past how guiding on 3 different bodies of water help make me a better fisherman and guide. You can not get complacent and have to stay on top of things. Especially during the dog...
