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.

This year has been something special to say the least. We have been fishing Clear Lake Iowa for the last 3 weeks and the bite has been great. The Walleyes are spawning and the Crappies are wanting to come in on the warmer days. The whole Corona thing has put a wrench in the works but we have been doing our due diligence before and after each trip. We spray the boat down with Isopropyl all the time and I’ve been doing by best to keep our family safe as well. If you want to get out of the house give me a call. 641-529-2359

The fall bite on Clear Lake is approaching fast! If you would like to get in on some fall Walleye and Crappie fishing please give us a call. We have also been booking ice fishing trips and sleeper house rentals. Call today for ice fishing details. Thanks and see ya on the water.
The bite this week has been pretty good. We are not catching the numbers of Walleye we were a month ago but the fishing has been good. We are finding more Yellows on every trip and we still have a some good Walleye spots kicking out some nice ones. We do offer some fishing and tubing packages during the summer so if you want you can fish 2-3 hours and tube for an hour or two. Feel free to call anytime if you have any questions. 641-529-2359
It might be hot but it’s never to early to book an ice fishing trip or sleeper house. We have a dozen in the books already and we get one every week so if you’re after a special weekend this winter make sure to get in the books sooner then later.
I wish I could sit here and tell you that the last few days was on fire but it wasn’t. We had a huge cold front come in a few days ago and the water dropped 11 degrees and shut the bite down. One thing that has helped me become the guide I am today is honesty. 6-24-17 and 6-25-17 were the worst two days I’ve had all year and I really didn’t want to go today but I’m glad I did. I called my customer last night and told him what the bite was like and they decided to stick it out and go fishing anyway despite what I thought. Lonnie and Deb knew the weather was going to be great, so regardless we were going to have a good time.
Today we chased Walleyes and didn’t do to bad. We lost a really nice 20 plus inch fish at the boat and landed some nice eaters with a bonus catfish. haha
Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions.
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
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.
Here is a some pictures from the last few days on Clear Lake. The fishing has been pretty good considering the cold front. We have some availability for both 3 man sleeper house and regular guide trips. If you have any questions please shoot me a email. Thank You
It looks like we are going to finish the year strong. We have been on a great Perch and Walleye bite. Best baits have been 1/8 th oz jig with a worm or minnow. We have also been casting Rip in raps. Dragging small creek chubs in the little lake has been good for finding big fish. Please swing by our new bait shop Clear Lake Bait and Tackle next time your in town. Nov. 18 – 20th will be our Grand Opening and Ice Season Kickoff we will have some great seminars planned along with piles of door prizes.
We have started to book winter trips! If you’re looking for a great time on the ice give me a call we will get you all set up.
I just want to say thank you for all the support in the 2016 open water season. This year was a pretty well rounded one with many Walleye and Panfish being caught we even got into a good number of Muskie. Clear Lake is really starting to become a premier fishing destination and we are excited for the future. We opened a bait shop in May of 2016 and that has taken off very well. We will be having a Grand Opening Nov. 18 – 20th. Along with our grand opening we will also be having our Ice Season Kick Off. That weekend is going to be something special. We will be doing a live broadcast from 11am to 1pm on Saturday with Jay Brooks and Kiss Country. Over that weekend we will also be having many seminars and product demos to show off the new product for 2017. The Grand Opening is going to be fantastic! We are going to have many door prize drawings over the weekend and you will not want to miss out. Looking forward to a great Ice Season!!!
