Night fishing on Lake Alexander

7 posts in this topic

I'll be in the area to golf next week and am thinking about fishing Alex at night (after dark) for walleye. Just wondering if it will be worth the effort or if things are pretty much dead after dark...if that's the case, maybe I'll just go to the Friendly Inn!

Thanks.

They used to back a few years ago when I fished for walleyes. Now I only fish for muskies so things might have changed in the last few years!!!

I know slip bobbers still work at night on Fish Trap lake next door.

Good luck!!

Are you suggesting that I fish Fish Trap instead of Alexander?

So...you're targeting bullheads, then?

No, fish Alex. Day or night, it's the better Walleye option.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
