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.

Hot Bite and Open Dates!

78 PanfishThe Bite is Hot and I have a few dates open this week.  Give me a call for details.  641-529-2359
These trips are for the Clear Lake area.

This week will be one to remember.

Today I spent my time guiding a great group of guys from Wisconsin and one thing I can say about some cheese heads is that they know how to fish. The bite was tough but they did a great job adapting to the situation.  Dale AKA Bob did a very good job and out fished the young guns.  Tomorrow I’ll be on the ice with the one and only Dave Genz. We will be searching for panfish on West O and Minnewasta. Then on Tuesday and Wed. we will be filming the next episode of Ice Team TV. and it only gets better from there. On Saturday I’ll be going to Rapid City S.D. to help take 50 kids fishing for the local boys club.

Season starts tomorrow!

Tomorrow will be my first day out checking multiple lakes and ponds.  We hope to pop a few holes and put some fish on the ice.  If all goes well we will be starting the guided ice fishing trips soon. Check back in a couple days and I’ll fill you in on my adventures.
