Fishing is crazy right now!


It’s amazing how good the bite is right now. This week has been really good for almost everything. Crappies Walleye Yellow Bass have all been on the chew. We have 4 guides running for us right now and we do have some extra room if your looking for a trip. 4 hr trips are $200 and 7 hr run $300. Muskie trips are a little extra. 

We offer shore lunch packages for $25 extra per person. 2 person minimum. Corporate trips are something that we really work hard at. If you’re looking to take out a large number of people with 10 to 20 fishing boats we can make that happen.   

Please enjoy some pictures from this week. Thank you

Muskies are on the chew and its time for us to go after them!

This year we have been targeting everything from Perch to Walleyes so it will be nice to change things up and start chasing fish with an attitude. The Clear Lake Muskie population is awesome and the DNR do a great job stocking fish on a regular basis. This lake will almost always give you a shot for a fish of a life time. Pictured is a good client Dennis Clark with a 49″ Clear Lake fish. It was CPR’d and named Lucy.IMG_0080

North Iowa Ice Report

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.


Have a happy new year!

My In-Store events over the next few weeks

My Schedule:
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!

kevan paul guideIts 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!



Nov. 3rd Fishing / Deer Hunting


The last coupld of weeks I’ve been deer hunting and it has been awesome. I was very luck and bagged two bucks that both had double split G 2’s. Southern Iowa Split G2 Tim A G2

Back to Fishing!

The bite yesterday was slow at first but we finished strong. We picked up a nice eater Walleye mixed in with the 20 Yellows we kept. This winter is going to be amazing. There will be a killer bite on Clear for Crappie and Yellows with a few Walleye mixed in and the bite on Boji will be fun. We are expecting lots of Perch and Walleye over that way. The guided ice fishing calls have been coming in and things are shaping up well. If your looking for a guided trip this winter give us a call. We have 2 guides at Clear Lake and also an extra guide at Okoboji. New this year is the 20ft Sleeper Shack please go to RATES to find out pricing and details on that. I want to wish everyone a great season.  God Bless!

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

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.

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!
