Great Fishing In Iowa

Clear Lake, Spirit Lake and the IGLS have been good. The sleeper on Clear has been kicking out some nice panfish with a few nice Walleye mixed in. The Yellow bass have been biting like crazy on the west end of the big lake. If your looking for Yellows work 8 to 10 ft and when you start to catch a few drill out the area so you can cover more water. If your looking for Crappie work the little lake dredge cuts. Over at the IGLS Spirit has been good. You will want to work 21ft out from buffalo run. The bite on East has probably been the most consistent bite at boji this year. If you fish east work 18 to 20 ft and small spoons has been the ticket for us. Fish the bar at Emerson’s if your looking for gills. Small dingle drop with a smashed waxie has been our best bait.

North Iowa Ice Report

We have ice and there is some fishable ice at the IGL’S. Clear Lake will be fishable by new years and the Igls will be even better at that time.  If you have plans to go out please make sure you have a spud bar and a floatation device. Another great thing to do is to call the local bait shops to get the most current ice report.

My guide service will be in full force the week of new years.  If you have questions or want to book a trip please give me a call.

Our guided trips are full service. We have multiple fish houses with heaters to keep you warm and dry.

 

Have a happy new year!

My In-Store events over the next few weeks

My Schedule:
Dec. 19th and 20th I’ll be at Cabelas in Owatonna Minn.  8 to 2 daily
Jan. 2nd I’ll be at Bass Pro in Altoona Iowa 9 to 2
Jan 8th 9th and 10th I’ll be at the Des Moines Boat and Outdoor Sports Show. (seminars daily and I’ll have a booth) I’ll be doing a drawing for a guided fishing trip so please stop in and get signed up.

This fishing has been very good on Clear Lake but its shore and boat fishing at this time. Once we get ice its going to be lights out!!  We have been taking large numbers of reservations because southern Iowa will not have much ice this year. This year like last year we will have 3 guides on Clear Lake so don’t be afraid to give us a call if your interested.

We will also be doing a lot of work at Okoboji this year. The bite at the IGL’S could be record setting!

kevan paul guideIts been a good week for reservations. Its funny, I go a week without any then boom 5 or 6 come in two days. I sold 3 gift certificates and 2 reg. bookings yesterday and today. I’ve been also taking reservations for the sleeper house. Its a 8×20 Ice Castle with knotty pine interior, satellite tv, stove, oven, sofa, dinning table and 4 beds. The sleeper runs 200 a week night or 250 a night on weekends and weekends have a two night minimum.

Yesterday Clear Lake was iced over and after all the rain today it opened back up. This early ice bite should be lights out. Most of the fish haven’t been touched in two months and they should be ready to chow down. We are also looking forward to the hot bite at Okoboji this year.
We have holiday gift certificates available by email. These trips go over very well, there is nothing better to give than something that creates awesome memories.
Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions. Thank You  Happy Holidays!

The last coupld of weeks I’ve been deer hunting and it has been awesome. I was very luck and bagged two bucks that both had double split G 2’s. Southern Iowa Split G2 Tim A G2

Back to Fishing!

The bite yesterday was slow at first but we finished strong. We picked up a nice eater Walleye mixed in with the 20 Yellows we kept. This winter is going to be amazing. There will be a killer bite on Clear for Crappie and Yellows with a few Walleye mixed in and the bite on Boji will be fun. We are expecting lots of Perch and Walleye over that way. The guided ice fishing calls have been coming in and things are shaping up well. If your looking for a guided trip this winter give us a call. We have 2 guides at Clear Lake and also an extra guide at Okoboji. New this year is the 20ft Sleeper Shack please go to RATES to find out pricing and details on that. I want to wish everyone a great season.  God Bless!

Halloween!

The fishing is great and we have availability.

Over the last few days the fishing has really been good. We has been landing some beautiful Panfish and a occasional Walleye. The Walleye bite should really start to pick up soon with the cooler temps approaching. We have many open spots right now mostly weekdays but we do have a few weekend spots open over the next few weeks.  If your looking for a fun bite with a good number of catching then I would recommend giving us a call. 50 to 100 fish days are not uncommon in the fall and it make a perfect trip for the whole family.

Yellow Bass Are On Fire

Good Fishing

Nice Walleye rod bentThe fishing has been awesome. Piles of Yellows along with a Walleye or two. The Muskie bite is starting to pick up again with the cooler waters approaching. Ice fishing is right around the corner and we are booking many trips. If your thinking about doing a ice fishing adventure this winter please give us a call. During the winter we target Crappie, Gills, Perch, Walleye, Pike and Yellow Bass. We also have a new Wheel house for rent that will sleep 4 on the ice.

Yellows are getting hot!

This week we have really got the Yellows dialed in! The Yellow Bass are great eating and we are boating lots of them on each trip. We have been working shallow water like 5 to 6 ft. Veridical jigging Clam Drop jigs has working the best. Cut-bait has been our go to bait.
