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 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, Devils Lake all winter, and DL and Sakakawea all summer. I probably log more time on the water than most. I love being able to change bodies of water all year long!

I’m not done on Devils Lake or Sakakawea quite yet. I have trips on both in September. I am however booking trips as we speak for the river near Bismarck this fall. Again, if you are coming to ND to hunt and want to mix it up a little, let me know and we will dial in a fun and easy trip.

So what’s happening currently? Fish are still biting on both Devils and Sakakawea. I’d say if you are looking to put numbers in the livewell, get the leadcore and cranks out! Just remember, fish are extremely deep right now and you will need to keep all the fish you catch in 25 foot of water or deeper. They will not survive even if you think they do because they swam away. I have a dive buddy that tells me you would be sick to your stomach if you saw all the dead walleyes laying on the bottom of Sakakawea this time of year.

Sakakawea look for fish on the humps and or deeper main lake points. Devils is a little bit more all over the place. Bridges, culverts, and old road beds are all high percentage areas right now.

As far as later this fall goes, fishing is going to be good! I have scattered dates open now until the end of November! Get ahold of me if you want to get out before the snow flies. Even when it does snow you can still get ahold of me for ice fishing excursion on Devils Lake!

If you follow me on my Snapchat you know there are two things I absolutely hate. One is the beet juice they use on our streets in Bismarck in the winter, the other is wind. As you can guess by the time of year, I haven't been complaining about the beet juice yet. The...

Ok, if someone has the controls for the fan you can dial it back a bit. I just spent the last 3 days at Devils Lake and now I'm pretty sure 60 plus of those hours were winds over 15 mph and as much as 30. Definitely wears on a guide. Even though the wind blew, the one...

Transition is definitely the word to use right now up here on Lake Sakakawea. If you are to ask 10 boats how things are going on the water up here, you will get all kinds of different answers. Some will say it was good. Some will say it was a little slow, and some...
