I was out on 10/13... Moved one Musky... Caught a HUGE bass... Caught one 12 inch Walleye at sundown.

Algae level was EPIC... Water level is about 3 feet down...

Which is strange... Water level was higher during the drought... Get a ton of rain, and it's the lowest I've ever seen!

Thanks Dances.

Can't believe that the algae is still going strong out there. Thought it would have been done by now. Going to try and get out tomorrow and monday if the weather will cooperate. Got to get the ol Lund out a couple more times before she goes to bed for the winter!!!! blush.gif

Water is really low...

Based on the Rock on the northside of Hay Stack... I'd guess it was down about 3 feet as of 2 weeks ago.

I went out of the East landing, and took myself out past the shallows using my trolling motor on it's shallowest setting, not wanting to risk dropping the main motor and have a big wave trough bang the skeg off bottom.

I can only imagine that the West Landing is worse.

I did move 1 Musky about 40-45 inches, and caught 2 eyes at Sundown.

mtreno,

I was just heading out as you were coming in. We didn't even see a fish, stayed til about 1:30.

A two man launch with no dock and 15 mph crosswind is not much fun either laugh.gif I did see that the dock was still in at the west end, next time I will go there.

Say,

My Buddy and I were chatting about Ice Fishing season, and some of the locales on Alexander...

But it always gets riddled with pressure ridges...

I know there's an access on the South End, but the one time I've driven down that road I didn't really have my eyes peeled to look for it. And I didn't see any signs for a public water access.

Can anyone give me any tips on how to find it, and what the parking situation is?

Dances,

It is there. Don't blink or you will miss it. Has a decent lot though. I used it last year and is right before there is a rise in the road.

Thanks!

How is the pressure ridget situation on that part of the lake?

Can you get out to the Rock Pile off of Hay Stack, or Anderson Point?

I use that one quite a bit too. Last year, if I remember right, there was a ridge running north and south from each end of Haystack. Everything east of Haystack was fine.

Shamalex has it right. The ridge usually runs north and south of Haystack. It was especially bad last year and had a difficult time crossing until later in the year.

See you guys up ther in a few weeks!
