With the warmer weather coming we can only think about spring Walleye and Crappie fishing. I have been booking some trips over the last month and I can’t wait to get the boat out. Tomorrow I’m filming another segment of Fishing the Midwest Bob Jensen. We will be targeting Crappie and Yellow Bass on Clear Lake. I just want to say thank you to everyone for all the support its much appreciated. Fishing over the last few days has been good. East Lake was great on Saturday Morning we caught Perch and Yellows and after 11 am we moved to Minni. for some more panfish action. I did get out on Clear today and the Yellows and Crappie are still going good. The Yellows are on Fire!!
Happy Holidays! I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
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.
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.
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 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.
We have had a great July. The Panfishing has been great on West O. and during those trips we get a few Large Mouth and some Small Mouth mixed in. Crystal Lake is still good with an occasional Walleye mixed in. Its now Muskie season on Clear Lake and they have started to heat up. We are still getting a couple eyes on Clear also but its not crazy good. I’ve posted some pics of some Huge Yellow Bass, some are pushing 12 inches. Iowa Master angler is 10in.
Dennis got this 49″ Muskie yesterday. He named her Lucy and let her go to be caught another day. I hope to see her again real soon! We also picked up a few Walleyes and some Crappie. The bite was a little slow but this fish sure made his day!
The Crappie bite has been great. The fish have been running 9 to 12 inches. Clear Lake has been very good this year. We have had some great walleye trips also. I’ve attached a few pictures from the trips over the last couple days. We even boated the 1st Muskie yesterday while fishing for Walleye. That a sweet bonus!!
