Great Fishing and Lots of Ice!

I’ve been fishing on and around Clear Lake and the fishing has been great. Lots of panfish are being caught and we still have lots of ice fishing left in this season.  I’ll be off to Boji Monday night and won’t be home until Friday night.  It sounds like the bite has been getting better and I’m looking forward to some better fishing over there.  We do have some spots open over the next few weeks so if your looking for a fun bite give us a call.  Panfish

Coralville Reservoir Crappie

We have a great bite going on Coralville right now. If your looking for a fun Crappie bite on a cool reservoir this bite might be for you. Fully Guided Full Day Trips are $250 and that’s for 2 people.Resampled952014-01-119515-08-5295536


1/9/14 – 1/12/14 was a very tough bite on West O.

20140113_17032320140112_110533Over the last few days I can honestly say that we got are butts handed to us.  This was the worst weekend I have ever had.  The good news is that it can only get better. We did manage to catch a few hogs.  I’ll be going back over Wednesday to work on the bite for the upcoming run of trips.  I’m going to try a couple different game plans and I do think they will pay off.

Clear Lake has continued to be good for Yellow Bass and Crappie.
Crystal Lake has been a hot spot for Gills and Crappie. Both of those lakes are located in North Central Iowa and a lot of fun to fish.

ICE REPORT!!  The ice is great with little to no snow cover.  20 to 24 inches most everywhere.
Hot Bait.  Clam Dingle Drop and a Maki Maki Pink.
