  4. Hi Clear Lake! Drew (co-founder) from Fishidy here. I'm traveling through the great state of Iowa for Ragbrai this week and plan on fishing this lake on Tuesday ...more at some point in the day. If you want to toss a line in the water or chat about fishing, Fishidy or life in general than drop me a line. Looking forward to catching some fish!

      Don, thank you so much for your kind words. I shared them with the team and everyone had smiles from ear to ear. Congratulations on your sobriety and recovery. That ...more is so amazing and I can tell you have the strength to continue on this path.

      Fishing has always been a sanctuary and time of bliss for me as well. There are few things where one can completely unwind and forget about the day to day. Tight lines, Don!

      Hello Drew, just wanted to take some time to thank you for co-founding this website. I have recently gotten back into fishing as my knees have gotten to wrecked ...more to golf. As a recovering alcoholic/addict I find that being alone on the water in my belly boat is just about as serene as it gets. Fishidy is my sanctuary during the week when I can't get on the water. Thank you one and all!! I read almost all of your posts and look at your pictures, keep 'em comin'!

      I won't be up there Tuesday but I work at Clear Lake Bait and Tackle and have a lot of lake knowledge and fish the lake all the time. You can stop by the shop ...more for an up to date report on the lake. The owner of the shop (Kevan Paul) is also an owner of a guide service so we have great info all the time.
