The bite has been unbelievable so far this spring. It’s amazing that the bite is as good as it is despite the cold weather. Next week the weather is finally going to break and I’m sure the fish are going to explode! We have two new guys to the team this year. Kaleb Roth and Bill Bunn both have been doing trips for me this year and they both have been doing a excellent job. If you’re looking for a trip give me a call and we can see if there is a day that works for you. The Walleye Fishing on Clear Lake is at high right now and the Crappie fishing is right there as well. We will also be targeting Perch very soon. The Perch are nice with some 13’s mixed in. Lets get you out on Clear Lake and catch some fish.
The phone has been ringing off the hook! Thank you every one of all the support.
If you’re looking for a fun time to catch a pile of fish the spring has to be one of the best times. The last couple weeks of April and the month of May is my favorite time to guide open water. Usually the trips are Walleye and Crappie but we do target Muskies often as well. This year we have 4 great guides so if your after a weekend day we can make the happen.
Just a reminder that we cater many corporate trips each year and they can very from just the average trip to the luxury style with shore lunch, trophies, lodging and vip pickup from the hotel. We have managed groups as large as 40 people.
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND MY NUMBER IS 641-529-2359
It’s time folks spring Walleye and Crappies are right around the corner and we still have plenty of availability for 2017. We will have multiple guide boats on the water this year and we are available for corporate trips if needed. Please call for corporate or multi boat rates. Almost all of our trips we will meet you at our new bait shop on HWY 18 in Clear Lake. If you live on the lake we can pick you up right from your dock. Please feel free to call 641-529-2359 and ask for Kevan if you have any questions. Thank You
The 2016 – 2017 ice season will be ending soon. After this next warm spell the ice fishing on Clear Lake will be pretty much done. We are expecting 50 to 60 degree days this week and unless we get another hard cold snap we will be packing it up early this year. The good news is that we are going to have some killer fishing this spring. Crappies and Walleyes will be the primary target for most of the spring. If you’re looking for a fun day on the water our open water spring fishing trips are some of the best trips all year. We have a large guide staff readily available and we have done corporate trips with as many as 20 boats involved. We also offer guided Muskie Trips. Clear Lake offers some of the best Muskie fishing in Iowa and we love to target them.
Hello Ice Fishermen!
Over the next couple of weeks we have multiple spots available for guided fishing and some availability for the green sleeper. The all around bite has been pretty good. We are finding good numbers of Crappies, Gills, and Yellows right now. The Walleyes are playing hard to get. We have found a few fish but its been inconsistent. Please give us a call if you have any questions.
ICE– The ice is 14 – 16 inches right now and it looks pretty good. The access points are a little chewed up but not to bad yet.
It looks like we are going to finish the year strong. We have been on a great Perch and Walleye bite. Best baits have been 1/8 th oz jig with a worm or minnow. We have also been casting Rip in raps. Dragging small creek chubs in the little lake has been good for finding big fish. Please swing by our new bait shop Clear Lake Bait and Tackle next time your in town. Nov. 18 – 20th will be our Grand Opening and Ice Season Kickoff we will have some great seminars planned along with piles of door prizes.
We have started to book winter trips! If you’re looking for a great time on the ice give me a call we will get you all set up.
I just want to say thank you for all the support in the 2016 open water season. This year was a pretty well rounded one with many Walleye and Panfish being caught we even got into a good number of Muskie. Clear Lake is really starting to become a premier fishing destination and we are excited for the future. We opened a bait shop in May of 2016 and that has taken off very well. We will be having a Grand Opening Nov. 18 – 20th. Along with our grand opening we will also be having our Ice Season Kick Off. That weekend is going to be something special. We will be doing a live broadcast from 11am to 1pm on Saturday with Jay Brooks and Kiss Country. Over that weekend we will also be having many seminars and product demos to show off the new product for 2017. The Grand Opening is going to be fantastic! We are going to have many door prize drawings over the weekend and you will not want to miss out. Looking forward to a great Ice Season!!!
We have been doing very well with he Crappie and Yellows over the last couple of weeks. I’ll be honest some days are better than others but on a good solid day we are catching over 50 fish. The water temps will start to drop over the next couple of weeks and we will be back into the Musky action. Crappies and Yellow have been biting on 1/16 or 1/8oz jigs (pink or glow white) tipped with a minnow or a chunk of worm. Make sure to swing by Clear Lake Bait and Tackle Inc.
With the weather being so crazy lately we are very happy with how well the fish have been on the chew. Yellows and Crappies are biting like mad when you can get on the school and an occasional Walleye is usually mixed in.
Its time to start thinking about the Fall Muskie bite. It won’t be long and the fall bite will start to pick up. We have many openings for later in September and Early October. October is usually a great time for Yellows and slab Crappies also. Walleyes should be rocking by then also.
Ice Fishing this year is going to be crazy awesome. Our new bait shop Clear Lake Bait and Tackle will be your best option for ice fishing gear around the Clear Lake area. We will have a great selection of shacks and tackle from all manufacturers. We have started to work on pre orders for ice gear and if there is something you need or would like to have just let us know. Thanks Kp
