The Walleye bite has been pretty good overall. Live Bait presentaions like casting jigs or using slip bobbers have been good. Macintosh has the cleaning station open so we can clean and bag your fish without trouble.
The Crappie bite is what I’m getting excited for. The Crappies this year are very nice. We have a very healthy year class of 11″ to 13″ fish. I’ve seen a couple over 15.

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.
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.
This year the sleeper shack has been doing its job by producing some nice fish. Its not lights out but its good enough to where you can chase fish during the day and pop some nice ones in the shack at night. The guide service is in neutral at this time because of the big tournament this weekend. This weekend is the 4th annual Yellow Bass Bonanza and we have 510 anglers competing for over $30k in prizes. Monday the 15th we will be in full swing again and we do have some availability before the end of the month. Please call for dates if you have interest in fishing with us before ice out. I would also like to mention spring Walleyes. The 2016 Spring Walleye bite will be one of the best in years. The fishing over the last two open water seasons has been great and this year should be nothing less. If your looking for Walleyes and Crappies book with us in April May or June. If you want Yellow Bass / Walleye Mix June and July. If you want to Musky fish book May – Oct. Please visit my rates page for all the pricing. Feel free to call anytime.

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!
This fall has been a great time on the lake. With ice fishing coming soon we have been working on key locations for Crappie, Walleye, Perch and Yellow Bass. The bite has been good and it will continue to be good through 1st ice. This year we have a new wheelhouse / sleeper house for rent check out our rates page for more details. If your looking for one last fall bite feel free to give me a call and we will put you on a numbers bite. Have a great
The fishing has been awesome. Piles of Yellows along with a Walleye or two. The Muskie bite is starting to pick up again with the cooler waters approaching. Ice fishing is right around the corner and we are booking many trips. If your thinking about doing a ice fishing adventure this winter please give us a call. During the winter we target Crappie, Gills, Perch, Walleye, Pike and Yellow Bass. We also have a new Wheel house for rent that will sleep 4 on the ice.
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 email@example.com
