Lincoln Lakes Area Fishing

Say guys looking for anyone fishing on Lake Alex Fish trap or Shaminau. How are they doing this weekend and what they catching. I was out Friday and we caught two limits of nice Crappies in less than 2 hours. Is anything else going or is it slowing down for the cold snap?

Just went to Alex tonight from 400 to 830, marked fish all night but only caught about 6 crappies. Nothing real big, had plenty of competition though! Lake was pretty full.

Was on Alex last night as well, lots of houses on the west end. Fished from 3:00 to 7:00. Caught a bunch of dink sunnies and a limit of crappies, but I was hungry. Normally those fish would go back in the water. Crapps were smaller than I had heard, the bigger ones must have been weeded out already...

Was out on Alex all weekend, and the bite was pretty slow for me. Mainly pesky little perch, and nothing worth keeping. I've never seen so many houses on that lake before either. I can't imagine there's a lot of fish left in there!

Way to much pressure at Alex......went to Fish Trap last week....its like fishing in Canada.......nobody's out here, its kind of nice, you go drill holes where fish should be...huuuh...they they are! Been back twice more and they're biting. Limited on 12" to 13 1/2" crappies the first time and the next 2 times walleye limits (15"to 24") gotta love those frostie spoons!

Alex looks like "Grumpy Old Men" out there! There are houses on top of houses pretty much ALL over that lake. I'm thinking about buying a corn dog cart from the State Fair, quitting my job, and setting up shop in the west bay. I'd be rich!

The west end bite is way slow now and mostly 9 10 inch crappies, but if you go out further in the lake thats where the nice 13inchers are now!!!! Go drill some holes and have fun! Ice is good all over. Myself and my buds have been driving heavy trucks and diesels all across the lake for close to 3 weeks now. I fish out there almost everyday.

Would anyone be so kind as to give me some idea where to be fishing on Fishtrap for walleyes? My I am new to fishing the lake, as my parents have recently purchased a cabin on the lake. My dad and I were thinking about trying some fishing in the coming weekend and would like any info that can give us some chance of catching some walleyes, or crappie. The way it looks in past yeard that houses seem to set up just outside the bay from the public access right off old hwy 10. Any info on bait, location, presentation, time would be great. Any info in general about fishing this lake would be greatly appreciated.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
