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

The Melt down!

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.

Thank You!!

Good Ice Good Bite!

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.

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!

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!

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

We also have a new Wheel house for rent that will sleep 4 on the ice.

The bite was great last weekend! 6-7-15

The Walleye bite on Clear Lake continued to be great last weekend. The morning bite was much better for us than the evening but both were good. We caught most of the fish on jigs and or slip bobbers.
I have a couple 4 hr spots open in the next few days otherwise we are full until the 29th of June. We are starting to do Muskie trips now and we are also doing some trips on Crystal Lake. The fishing on Crystal is awesome! Crystal is all about panfish, large mouth and Walleye. We have many open spots after the 4th of July. Feel free to call if you have more questions. Thank You 641-529-2359

Hello everyone!!  Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. The fishing over the last month has been the best its been in years and its still red hot right now.  We have Walleye and Crappie going on Clear right now and Gills, Bass, Walleye and Crappie on Crystal. Jigs with live bait have been my favorite tactic but pulling cranks can be very good also. Up until June 15 we have a lot of availability weekends or weekdays.  June 15-22 we do not have anything available at this time.  Muskie fishing is also starting to heat up on Clear and we will be starting those trips in a couple weeks. If you are looking for a good time to go out and catch some very nice fish now is the time. It really doesn’t get much better than this. Yesterday we landed 40 plus walleye over 16 inches with multiple over 20″. To book or ask questions please give me a call or shoot me a email.  641-529-2359 or email at kevan@paulsfishingguide.com
