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.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
