Over the last few days the fishing has been very constant. The Walleyes are still biting under the docks and the Crappies and Yellows are starting to show up just outside the weed lines. Just a few days ago we pulled a nice pile of Crappies out and most were in the 10 to 11 range with some 12 plus. Catfishing has also been amazing this week 9 foot rocks with a jig and a Leech.






Muskies are on the chew and its time for us to go after them!

This year we have been targeting everything from Perch to Walleyes so it will be nice to change things up and start chasing fish with an attitude. The Clear Lake Muskie population is awesome and the DNR do a great job stocking fish on a regular basis. This lake will almost always give you a shot for a fish of a life time. Pictured is a good client Dennis Clark with a 49″ Clear Lake fish. It was CPR’d and named Lucy.IMG_0080

New Bait Shop! Great Fishing!!

We have opened a new bait shop on HWY 18 in Clear Lake Iowa. Its located at 524 HWY 18 E Clear Lake Ia 50428. Live bait, tackle, and camping supplies.

The fishing has been great over the last couple of weeks. We have been boating over 75 fish a day. Walleyes, Crappies, Yellows, and Muskie have been biting very well. The bite is on and if you’re looking for a fun trip now is a great time.


The bite has been great and we have a surprise!!

The fishing this week has been good. We have been fishing with jigs and slip bobbers on the rocks. Casting plastics has also been working well near the wind swept points. The Yellow Bass have also started to pick up over the last few days. If we can get another warm spell the Yellows are going to be on fire.  Yesterday Chris and his son had 50 plus yellows and 3 big whites fishing in 4 to 5ft along the rushes.

We have some exciting news!!!

Kevan Paul and Chris Scholl have decided to open a new bait shop in Clear Lake. We will be at 524 Hwy 18 East.  CLEAR LAKE BAIT & TACKLE Inc.
The shop will have everything from Muskie gear to ice fishing houses. If you’re looking for a great place to shop this year give us a shot.

Spring Time Walleye!! New Bait Shop in Clear Lake!!

Its spring time!!

The bite has been pretty good over the last couple of weeks considering the weather. Next week we are really looking forward to catching some nice Walleye and Panfish. Chris was out yesterday and they caught some nice Perch and Gills. Most Perch run 9 but it will only be a matter of time before hit 10 plus. The Muskies have been going well also.  If you’re looking for Walleyes and Muskie work shallow water and look for a hard bottom. Small jigs tipped with a minnow and or plastic has been best.

Chris and I have teamed up to open a new bait shop in Clear Lake. The new shop will be called Clear Lake Bait & Tackle Inc.

This new bait shop is located at 524 hwy 18 E. We are looking to open in early May.  We will be selling all your fishing equipment needs along with some camping items. We will have firewood, propane exchange, ice, and much more.

We would like to thank all of you for your support. This past year was a huge success!!


Fish On!!!
