The fishing has been very good and the dates have been filling fast. We have 3 guides this year and we will be rocking all season. Right now we have a great Crappie bite going and we also have a very aggressive Yellow Bass bite. The Perch are also going well for us at the IGLS. If you would like to join in on the fun give us a call.  We also have Christmas Gift Cards available and they can be emailed before Christmas.

Clear Lake Panfish and Ice Fishing!

Things on Clear are still steady. We have been picking up some nice panfish with a walleye or two mixed in. The Yellows are being caught in 3 to 6 ft in the little lake and the Crappie are starting to make there move to the winter holes. The Muskie fishing has been fair. We have been boating around 1 or 2 per trip.

ICE FISHING!
Its time to start looking at or booking your 2015 ice fishing trip! We have been taking many calls about ice fishing and people have started to book.  If your looking at doing a weekend trip this year you should call sooner than later.  If your looking at a weekday trip you still have some time yet. This year is going to be a blast!

Things are still going strong!

Things over the last few days have been awesome! We are still pulling a few Muskie and we also got into a cain pole bite. On the long sticks we have been catching Yellows and Gills. We have also been getting a few Walleyes on Cranks. If your looking for a day of mixed fishing, now is the time. Pictured is Kade (12yrs old) releasing his first Muskie ever. This was one of the most memorable fish I have ever had in the boat. This young man casted for 7 hours and during the last 30 minutes of fishing time he hooked and landed this nice mid 30 inch fish. Kade you are a stud on the water and Im so happy to have put the Muskie fishing in your blood. You remind me of my self when I was your age. Just remember what ever you choose to do in live just stick to it and it will happen.

Great Muskie Fishing!! Are You Ready?

The Last couple days have been great Muskie fishing. This year has blessed us with some great fish. The best part of my fully guided trips are that I will show and teach you exactly how to put one of these in the boat.  The top photo is Dan and his 1st ever Muskie!!!!

The Yellow Bass fishing is starting to pick up. If we put a little work into it I think we could boat a pile of them. (100Plus)  The Muskie fishing is also great.  Most trips are landing at least one and some are getting multiple opportunities to put some nice fish in the boat. Mike and His Father Bob (75yr old) both picked up a nice fish on Sunday Night.  Photo – Mike with is nice Clear Lake fish.
If Muskie or Yellow Bass fishing has your interest please feel free to shoot me a email or give me a call.

September should be lights out Yellow Bass fishing and we do have some weekend spots available.

 

June 30th – 2 fish for two great clients!

At least with all these storms we are still landing some great fish!  Muskies love crazy weather and that’s one thing that we have had a lot of. Chris popped his and then his friend landed her fish 3 cast later.  Nice job guys! Thanks again!

Two for Two!
