I fish in the Alexandria area. The walleyes were a little slow, but many lakes had great crappie fishing.

Now the crappies have slowed down, and the walleyes are biting great. At least on the 2-3 lakes I like to fish on....

Don't feel left out, Upper Red locked up for almost two weeks, last couple of days it has started firing back up, crazy how that lockjaw can cover the whole state sometimes.

Caught 16" and a baby 8" with a red #4 inline spinner. Seven feet of water on the weed line. A lake 5 mins or so away from coon rapids. Went out around 8pm and got off near 9:30. Kinda tough with this hot weather.

We'll hope you find them. Let us know if ya slaughter some.

With the chop on Osakis yesterday, I would have thought the 'eye's would have been easy picking. We threw everything at them. Leeches, vertical jigging drop offs with crawlers, bottom bouncing, slip bobbers, tossing cranks, with very little results.

The 3 boys and I just got back to the waterville area fron Alex. area, we fished 3 different lakes in the Alex area, the walleyes we caught were all in 8 ft. of water in the weeds or close to the weeds on the chop sides of the lakes. If you weren;t cleaning weeds off, you were not gettig bites

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
