Here are a few pics from the last couple weeks. The young man holding the big cat is not our client but a very good friend. What a great accomplishment for him to land this hog. I also shared another big flathead and she was a client of ours. That fish was 42″ 35 pounds. The Crappie fishing has been one of our strongest bites over the last week. The walleye fishing has been good but its best early in the morning. If you want walleyes we need to start at 5:30/6am.
We have started booking ice fishing trips and the sleeper house rentals will be in full force this winter. This ice season we will have multiple sleepers for rent, so please call for more details.
It’s been a great season so far on Clear Lake and even with all the rain the bite continues to be good. We have been catching limits of Walleye on most trips with some Yellow Bass, Pike, and panfish mixed in. Most of the fish have been caught on Leeches or Worms. We have been using a lot of jigs and slip bobbers over the last 3 weeks and the bite has been in 4-8 feet of water for most trips. After the 4th of July we have many spots open. Guide Trips run $300 for 2 people and that covers 4 hours of fishing and we will clean your fish. You will enjoy the day on the lake with us.
Please visit our facebook page Kevan Pauls Guide Service and give it a LIKE. We are much more active on that page. I’ll do my best post more reports here as well.
Late ice is coming soon and I have a feeling that this one is going to be epic! We will be offering trips into March if all goes well. Last March we smoked the Walleyes and Perch and I’m hoping this year will be the same.
The Fall Bite is Hot and we have one week left of catching fish. If you wanna catch some nice Walleye or Perch now is the time to book. We only have a couple slots available so please just call for times and details. Thank You.

The 2017/2018 Ice Fishing Season is approaching fast and this year is going to be a lot of fun. We have a few new lakes on the hit list and we can’t wait to get on some hard water. This winter we will have some very good Perch opportunities. Perch have been running 10-14 inches long with most being 11″-12″ We will also have a couple good Walleye lake’s to target this winter. This winter is going to be one of the best ones yet. Just think….. Iowa Fishing – catching Walleyes, Jumbo Perch, Slab Crappies, and Yellow Bass by the buckets. Should be an interesting season.
Book 4 hour or 7 hour guide trips or stay in one of our sleeper houses
Been out all week and each day we are catching some nice Walleye and a bunch of Yellows. This time of the year is hot that’s for sure but the fishing hasn’t slowed much at all. We have trips booked everyday and we stay on top of the fish. If you have interest give me a call and we can talk details. Have a great summer. It’s time to start booking ice fishing trips so start thinking about those. have a good day.
The bite this week has been pretty good. We are not catching the numbers of Walleye we were a month ago but the fishing has been good. We are finding more Yellows on every trip and we still have a some good Walleye spots kicking out some nice ones. We do offer some fishing and tubing packages during the summer so if you want you can fish 2-3 hours and tube for an hour or two. Feel free to call anytime if you have any questions. 641-529-2359
It might be hot but it’s never to early to book an ice fishing trip or sleeper house. We have a dozen in the books already and we get one every week so if you’re after a special weekend this winter make sure to get in the books sooner then later.
I wish I could sit here and tell you that the last few days was on fire but it wasn’t. We had a huge cold front come in a few days ago and the water dropped 11 degrees and shut the bite down. One thing that has helped me become the guide I am today is honesty. 6-24-17 and 6-25-17 were the worst two days I’ve had all year and I really didn’t want to go today but I’m glad I did. I called my customer last night and told him what the bite was like and they decided to stick it out and go fishing anyway despite what I thought. Lonnie and Deb knew the weather was going to be great, so regardless we were going to have a good time.
Today we chased Walleyes and didn’t do to bad. We lost a really nice 20 plus inch fish at the boat and landed some nice eaters with a bonus catfish. haha
Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions.
Over the last few days the weather hasn’t been ideal for Walleye fishing but we have managed to put a pattern together that has kept us on some nice fish all week. Today the weather finally broke and the bite was no different and we boated our limit in under one hour. Today the water has started to climb again and I think we are going to see some insane bites over the next couple of weeks. (Walleye and Muskie both)
Walleye Classic Review
This last weekend we fished in the 28th Annual Clear Lake Walleye Classic and with a little luck we pulled out a solid 7th place finish out of 100 boats. It wasn’t as good as our 4th place finish last year but a top 10 is always good. On Saturday of this years tournament we hooked up with a fish right out of the gate that probably went 3 or 4 pounds. It was the 1st fish of the day and it was only 8 feet away hung up on a piece of structure flopping on the surface. Now there was two things that could have happened, one the fish could have come loose so we could boat it or two the line breaks. You can guess what happened. That fish would have put us right around the top but thats fishing. It seems like every tournament many teams have a fish they loose or the big one gets away. Thats fishing!
The guiding has been fantastic this year and I appreciate all the support from you guys. We have 4 guides working trips right now and everyone is on the same page which is a good thing for our guest. We have a few different bites going as we speak and we are working on more everyday. The Crappie made a move out of the shallows and the spawn is pretty much over so we are on the hunt to find their next location.
The Walleye have been going like gang busters and that bite should only get better.
The Muskie should start heating up this week with the warmer water and the Yellows up shallow spawning.
Just a reminder on our trips we do supply everything and we can take anyone fishing regardless of age or disability. We do offer corporate outings as well and we can put together a group of very good local pros and guides that can manage a very large group. On our corporate outings the sky is the limit.
Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions or would like to book a trip.
It’s amazing how good the bite is right now. This week has been really good for almost everything. Crappies Walleye Yellow Bass have all been on the chew. We have 4 guides running for us right now and we do have some extra room if your looking for a trip. 4 hr trips are $200 and 7 hr run $300. Muskie trips are a little extra.
We offer shore lunch packages for $25 extra per person. 2 person minimum. Corporate trips are something that we really work hard at. If you’re looking to take out a large number of people with 10 to 20 fishing boats we can make that happen.
Please enjoy some pictures from this week. Thank you
