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!

As I relocate back to Lake Sakakawea from 3 days over at Devils Lake, I’m finally seeing the changes of fall. They are calling for cooler temps which should rev up the walleyes to start the feedbag.
I was pleasantly surprised with the fishing on Devils Lake. I actually only had one day to fish prior to the Casino Cup Championship. We spent most of the day fishing around the current areas with jigs. Nothing fancy and our activity for the most part was excellent. Tournament day however was a day of emptying our crank bait boxes. The bigger walleyes in Devils Lake, especially in the fall, love the deeper breaks with rock. We never boated a “kicker” fish, but we had a nice solid bag of 6 fish getting us an 11th place finish.
The summer due to Covid has been a weird one. I only fished 4 events this summer cracking the top 20 in 3 out of the 4. Even with all the worlds confusion, it was nice to have a little normal.
So what to expect here from now until freeze up? I would expect Devils Lake, Sakakawea and also Oahe to get better and better. We still need the water temps to drop some more to really get things fired up! I’ll continue to bring you fishing reports. Also if your thinking about booking an ice fishing adventure now is the time! Pick some dates to come join me up on Devils Lake! We can accommodate any size group and we have lodging and fishing packages available. Email me at mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com

Lake Sakakawea Fishibg Report-August 7th, 2022

Being back on Sakakawea has been fun! Honestly for me, I love being able to guide on both of North Dakota's big bodies of water this time of year. It keeps you on your toes and I feel I'm a better guide because of it! No time to get complacent. The fish are moving...

Mid Week Fishing Report- August 3rd, 2022

Back on Sakakawea this week certainly isn't a let down. This lake has been on fire since the very beginning this year and hasn't let up a bit. The fish are moving around some. You can still find some really nice fish up shallow. Just need to be a tad more patient with...

Devils Lake Fishing Report- July 31st, 2022

It's been good! Bug hatches, tons of new food like baby perch and white bass, lots of fresh water shrimp, yet the walleyes on Devils Lake just continue to bite! What's working? Well, it's Devils Lake. Seems like whatever you like to use will work! What's working best?...

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 27th, 2022

So I've been up on Devils Lake now for over a week. Lots of different weather, a couple more bug hatches, and a really strong walleye bite. I get asked to compare or I get asked what lake is better? Totally not a fair question to ask. I just tell folks they are both...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 24th, 2022

I reluctantly left Lake Sakakawea earlier this week to travel east to Devils Lake. All the Rage (no pun intended) lol has been on how good the fishing has been on both bodies of water. I'm here to tell you Devils Lake is holding its own. Both bodies of water have been...

Mid Week Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report-July 20th, 2022

If Lake Sakakawea was a movie, I think we could call it Groundhogs Day. Nothing has changed really with the mood of the fish. They are still eating! They are a bit more scattered as far as depth is concerned. Some days it just doesn't matter, but the bulk of the...
