Okoboji June Bite is Hot! Call (712) 330-5815 TO GET IN ON THE ACTION
The bite continues to heat up on West Okoboji. Surface water temperatures were getting very close to 70 degrees today. A few walleyes are still hitting...mostly slot fish. We are catching Largemouth and a few Smallmouth bass along with plenty of GIANT bluegill. Many of our gills are 9 3/4 inches to 9 7/8 inches VERY close to the coveted 10 inches. In early June we had two 14 inch crappies (big for West Okoboji) and Kent Benning from Indianola, IA caught a Beefy 19 1/2 inch Smallmouth bass.
Its been a cold, wet Memorial Day weekend. But that didn't dampen our luck on the water. Ben Graham had an incredible day on the water with several walleye....the biggest 22-inches and released. He also had a nice batch or bluegills and a beautiful largemouth. Mike Clarkson and his dad had about 30 pike with a nice batch of gills and Elliot Lund and his dad had some great "Catching" of bluegills, pike and a nice walleye!
Crazy weather in May. We had a snow storm...and a record 100-degree day. Now the fishing is heating up. I helped with the Okoboji High School PE class and they kept 136 pan fish for a big fish fry. This past weekend three groups caught their fill of giant bluegills for a meal. Then after catching the pan fish each group caught at least 30 northern pike with a few walleyes and bass mixed in. One group caught almost 50 northern pike in just a few hours!!!
HERE ARE SOME GREAT PHOTOS FROM THIS MAY INCLUDING A COUPLE FROM OUR MAY SNOW STORM.
Won't be long and we'll be on the ice in Okoboji! Here are a few photos and highlights from last season to get your blood pumping. I am currently taking bookings for this ice season. Please call (712) 330-5815 to reserve your date.
