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

Thank You.

It’s GOOD!

The fishing has really picked up! Walleye and Crappie have been in pretty good numbers and the sizes have been great also. Walleye have been caught on jig and a minnow and the crappie are also being caught on minnows or tube jigs. Over the next couple of weeks I have plenty of availability. If you have interest please feel free to give me a call and we can talk details.

This weekend is the 3rd annual Yellow Bass Bonanza Ice Fishing Tournament.  This year we have 254 teams and we are giving over $25k in cash and prizes. If your around Clear Lake this weekend please feel free to stop by Macintosh state park at 1pm for the weigh in.

Fishing Report – The fishing has been fantastic over the last week. We have been catching Crappie, Gills, and Yellow Bass out on Clear Lake. Most of the fish are being caught in 14fow or less.  Crystal lake is slow but they are still catching some limits of gills.  The Walleyes are being caught during low light hours on Clear but its a hit or miss on the keepers. Look for Walleyes on the rock reefs.

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.

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.

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!

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!




May 5th 2014 Good Fishing

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!!
