Fishing has been Fantastic here in Okoboji! All of my groups are catching big numbers of fish. Some groups are even catching numbers of big catch and release big fish. Here are the photos from this past week. Unbelievably nice fish being caught. As you can see.....even the panfish are HUGE. Its a great time to be fishing Okoboji !
My son Calvin And I also fished the Berkley 75th Anniversary Fishing tournament on Spirit Lake. Calvin got to rub shoulders with some of the best in the world including Tommy Skarlis and Hank Parker. Calvin tied for Second place in the tournament for Biggest Walleye. But lost the tie breaker and a big screen TV. Darn.
This past week we saw some cooler temperatures. I think it actually helped the bite a bit. Saturday June 2nd we had 4 limmits of nice keeper walleye and Jim from Sioux City had a 20 1/2 inch smallmouth and an 18 incher within 15 minutes. Beautiful Fish!! On Thursday May 31st Matt Sewell caught a Monster largemouth. Just a little over 18 inches but darn near as tall as she was long...HUGE. And Sunday I spend the day on the water with my daughter Hannah. She caught a 9 1/2 inch Bluegill and enough for supper.
Some good fishn' this weekend. The summer fishing season is here. Boat traffic this weekend was heavy for the first time and the wind blew like crazy but everybody caught fish.
The Fischer crew caught plenty for a big fish fry and others caught a few nice largemouth and walleyes. In spite of the wind....we had a GREAT weekdend.
Its been a windy week but we've still been finding fish. We're catching Bluegills and Crappies on West Okoboji along with the occasional "Picture Bass". Tons of Walleyes on East Okoboji. Joe from Omaha caught a monster catfish....didn't see than one comming. What a suprise....what a fight. Plenty of open dates this summer. Give a call and get choose your date!
The bite remains strong on Okoboji! Catching a few walleye limmits....along with some nice smallmouth and beautiful giant bluegills. The Crawfords hit it big last week on West Okoboji with Bluegill, Crappie and Smallmouth.
The NEW Skeeter WX1900 with 200 Yamaha runs like a dream. Very comfortable ride and easy to fish. I LOVE IT! Thanks to Skeeter and Great Lakes Marine in Spirit Lake.
