Muskie Bite is great and the Yellows are about to go on Fire.

Mike P. yellows

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.


Mid July Fishing Report

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.

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!!

The Numbers are in the lake!!

Over the last few days the local DNR has been gill netting for Walleyes and Muskie on Clear Lake. The numbers this year are great and the quality of fish are very nice. We are going to have a great season on Clear Lake and I can’t wait for the water to warm up this weekend. These pictures are from last night 4-16/17-2014. This Muskie is just under 40lbs! My open water season starts tonight!  These Walleye will be on the chew for a couple months so if your interested get your dates picked out and give me a call.

1/9/14 – 1/12/14 was a very tough bite on West O.

20140113_17032320140112_110533Over the last few days I can honestly say that we got are butts handed to us.  This was the worst weekend I have ever had.  The good news is that it can only get better. We did manage to catch a few hogs.  I’ll be going back over Wednesday to work on the bite for the upcoming run of trips.  I’m going to try a couple different game plans and I do think they will pay off.

Clear Lake has continued to be good for Yellow Bass and Crappie.
Crystal Lake has been a hot spot for Gills and Crappie. Both of those lakes are located in North Central Iowa and a lot of fun to fish.

ICE REPORT!!  The ice is great with little to no snow cover.  20 to 24 inches most everywhere.

Clear Lake Dec. 30th – Jan 3

We have a few spots open the week of the new year.  If your looking for a fun bite Clear Lake has been pretty good. We have been catching lots of Yellows and some Walleye mixed in.  The Yellows are not huge but lots eaters and there is plenty of them to be caught.  If you have any questions about these dates give me a call and I can tell ya what we have open.  I’m going to Okoboji Thursday I’ll post a new report when I get back. 20131223_095512 Walleye
