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.
Today we were out on a private bite and smoked the Perch! If you’re looking for a fun bite this is it!! Iowa Jumbos!! Please call to book your trip today. Please don’t call to just get the name of the lake. We are also starting to chase Muskies. The Musky bite will be hot for the next couple of months.
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 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.
Two local guides running a bait shop….. It doesn’t get any better than this!
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!!

I can tell you that this ice season has been great. We have had some fantastic bites between Okoboji and Clear Lake. I want to say thank you to everyone that came to visit.
Its TIME!!!!!!! SPRING WALLEYES!!!!!!
It’s time to start thinking about spring Walleyes and Crappies. The last two years the spring fishing has been unreal. It doesn’t matter if you like Panfish or Walleyes, we will be able to put you on a great bite. The calendar fills up fast so I recommend booking sooner than later. Feel free to call for details. 641-529-2359
This week has been warm and I have been receiving multiple call in regards to the ice. The ice is fishable and will be ok for a while yet. The biggest thing is the shoreline so please keep a eye on the access points. Trucks were ok today but might not be tomorrow so please use caution.
This time of the year can be one of the best times to land that trophy that you have been looking for. Late ice locations are similar to first ice locations. You will want to look at shallow points and some areas that have moving water. Remember use caution the ice is melting so please make sure you have your safety tools along. (life jacket, spud bar, ice spikes and a rope.
The sleeper will be coming off the ice soon and we will start working on the boat. We have started to book open water spring trips and those will fill up fast. Our spring bite will be killer this year. We are going to have a killer walleye bite and also a fantastic Crappie bite.
This year we are looking forward to the Musky bite. Please feel free to call for details on those trips.
I would like to say thank you to everyone for all the support is this ice season you guys were great.
This year the sleeper shack has been doing its job by producing some nice fish. Its not lights out but its good enough to where you can chase fish during the day and pop some nice ones in the shack at night. The guide service is in neutral at this time because of the big tournament this weekend. This weekend is the 4th annual Yellow Bass Bonanza and we have 510 anglers competing for over $30k in prizes. Monday the 15th we will be in full swing again and we do have some availability before the end of the month. Please call for dates if you have interest in fishing with us before ice out. I would also like to mention spring Walleyes. The 2016 Spring Walleye bite will be one of the best in years. The fishing over the last two open water seasons has been great and this year should be nothing less. If your looking for Walleyes and Crappies book with us in April May or June. If you want Yellow Bass / Walleye Mix June and July. If you want to Musky fish book May – Oct. Please visit my rates page for all the pricing. Feel free to call anytime.
