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 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.
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!!!!
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!
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!!
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.
I spent the day at Bass Pro in Altoona Iowa. The turnout was huge and the people were great. During my seminar we talked about North Iowa Fishing Tactics. We spent some time talking about Clear Lake, Crystal Lake, and the Iowa Great Lakes. I would like to thank everyone that came out today despite the cold weather.
The water is in the low 50’s and the Walleyes are starting to pick up. We fished yesterday for a while and boated two good eaters along with a pile of Yellows. I think if we strictly fish for Walleyes we could boat a couple limits. These fish came on a jig and minnow. We will be out this weekend looking for more eyes and Yellows and I’ll try to post a report Sunday! The Muskie fishing is still good. We are boating one fish per trip on average. Muskie fishing is hard work but man it is totally worth it!
