i went to spirir lake, iowa this spring and i went fishing in east and west lake okoboji from shore i saw a giant walleye some really big bass, some smallmouth a 45 inch muskie and pretty much every other fish!! i caught a 14 inch walleye on a sandworm a bull head and a sheepshead. i never did get to fish in big spirit lake but i heard there are some giant muskies in there. Has any one fished down there? it is in northwest iowa. highway 71 goes through it.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
