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!

We have had a decent week of weather. A few guys have been out probing both the open and frozen waters.

For me I’m not quite ready to venture out on the ice. I do so much ice fishing starting mid December running into mid March, I’ll wait until she’s thick enough for the side by side.

Speaking of early ice, please be careful out there! No fish is worth falling through and possibly losing a life over. Be careful, and use common sense when venturing out. New float suits, like the one I wear from Kmdainc.com are important to wear. Ice picks and spud bars are the tools of choice while checking ice. Take it slow.

Still some open water fishing going on. I’m actually hearing guys are doing better off shore. The casting bite up at the Tailrace and also a few selective areas on the river is good after dark.

As far as the boat fishing goes it’s kinda inconsistent right now. Seems the guys pulling cranks in the current along the sandbars are doing best. The water has dropped again here recently, and that is creating the spots to change and the fish to relocate a bit.

I’ve been busy both getting all my equipment and bookings rolling for ice fishing this winter on Devils Lake. If you are thinking of a trip, please get ahold of me. We can accommodate groups of any size.

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...
