Panfish and bass in Alex area

4 posts in this topic

I will be in Alex this weekend, and am a 1st timer to the area. Would appreciate advice for a lake (s) to concentrate on for panfish and bass. Thanks.

You will find lots of panfish and bass on the chain of lakes. Just ask at the local bait shop, they should be able to put you on pan fish

I chime in about Ida in case that may be an option. Lots of bass (smallmouth as well) and panfish. Both can be located at the edge of the weedline (~20' or so). Bass can also be found throwing spinnerbaits, but these are typically smaller fish.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
