The phone has been ringing off the hook! Thank you every one of all the support.
If you’re looking for a fun time to catch a pile of fish the spring has to be one of the best times. The last couple weeks of April and the month of May is my favorite time to guide open water. Usually the trips are Walleye and Crappie but we do target Muskies often as well. This year we have 4 great guides so if your after a weekend day we can make the happen.
Just a reminder that we cater many corporate trips each year and they can very from just the average trip to the luxury style with shore lunch, trophies, lodging and vip pickup from the hotel. We have managed groups as large as 40 people.

The 2016 – 2017 ice season will be ending soon. After this next warm spell the ice fishing on Clear Lake will be pretty much done. We are expecting 50 to 60 degree days this week and unless we get another hard cold snap we will be packing it up early this year. The good news is that we are going to have some killer fishing this spring. Crappies and Walleyes will be the primary target for most of the spring. If you’re looking for a fun day on the water our open water spring fishing trips are some of the best trips all year. We have a large guide staff readily available and we have done corporate trips with as many as 20 boats involved. We also offer guided Muskie Trips. Clear Lake offers some of the best Muskie fishing in Iowa and we love to target them.
We have opened a new bait shop in Clear Lake Iowa. Clear Lake Bait and Tackle is located on US HWY 18 E in Clear Lake. Please make sure to swing by on your next trip to the lake. Have a great day and FISH ON!!

Over the last few days the fishing has been very constant. The Walleyes are still biting under the docks and the Crappies and Yellows are starting to show up just outside the weed lines. Just a few days ago we pulled a nice pile of Crappies out and most were in the 10 to 11 range with some 12 plus. Catfishing has also been amazing this week 9 foot rocks with a jig and a Leech.
I can tell you that this ice season has been great. We have had some fantastic bites between Okoboji and Clear Lake. I want to say thank you to everyone that came to visit.
Its TIME!!!!!!! SPRING WALLEYES!!!!!!
It’s time to start thinking about spring Walleyes and Crappies. The last two years the spring fishing has been unreal. It doesn’t matter if you like Panfish or Walleyes, we will be able to put you on a great bite. The calendar fills up fast so I recommend booking sooner than later. Feel free to call for details. 641-529-2359
We have ice and there is some fishable ice at the IGL’S. Clear Lake will be fishable by new years and the Igls will be even better at that time. If you have plans to go out please make sure you have a spud bar and a floatation device. Another great thing to do is to call the local bait shops to get the most current ice report.
My guide service will be in full force the week of new years. If you have questions or want to book a trip please give me a call.
Our guided trips are full service. We have multiple fish houses with heaters to keep you warm and dry.
Dec. 19th and 20th I’ll be at Cabelas in Owatonna Minn. 8 to 2 daily
Jan. 2nd I’ll be at Bass Pro in Altoona Iowa 9 to 2
Jan 8th 9th and 10th I’ll be at the Des Moines Boat and Outdoor Sports Show. (seminars daily and I’ll have a booth) I’ll be doing a drawing for a guided fishing trip so please stop in and get signed up.
This fishing has been very good on Clear Lake but its shore and boat fishing at this time. Once we get ice its going to be lights out!! We have been taking large numbers of reservations because southern Iowa will not have much ice this year. This year like last year we will have 3 guides on Clear Lake so don’t be afraid to give us a call if your interested.
We will also be doing a lot of work at Okoboji this year. The bite at the IGL’S could be record setting!
Its been a good week for reservations. Its funny, I go a week without any then boom 5 or 6 come in two days. I sold 3 gift certificates and 2 reg. bookings yesterday and today. I’ve been also taking reservations for the sleeper house. Its a 8×20 Ice Castle with knotty pine interior, satellite tv, stove, oven, sofa, dinning table and 4 beds. The sleeper runs 200 a week night or 250 a night on weekends and weekends have a two night minimum.
Yesterday Clear Lake was iced over and after all the rain today it opened back up. This early ice bite should be lights out. Most of the fish haven’t been touched in two months and they should be ready to chow down. We are also looking forward to the hot bite at Okoboji this year.
We have holiday gift certificates available by email. These trips go over very well, there is nothing better to give than something that creates awesome memories.
Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions. Thank You Happy Holidays!
Over the last few days the fishing has really been good. We has been landing some beautiful Panfish and a occasional Walleye. The Walleye bite should really start to pick up soon with the cooler temps approaching. We have many open spots right now mostly weekdays but we do have a few weekend spots open over the next few weeks. If your looking for a fun bite with a good number of catching then I would recommend giving us a call. 50 to 100 fish days are not uncommon in the fall and it make a perfect trip for the whole family.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
