new to the area, help would be appreciated!

3 posts in this topic

We are looking at heading to the Alexandria area for a weekend of fishing around the 17th of Feb. Can anyone give me any information on any lakes that would be good to hit. I know thats a ways out there but we are just trying to get an idea of where we can keep an eye on or plan to land. We usually head to Mille Lacs that week but have not heard really good reports, so we decided to give a new area a try. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Lots of opportunities in the area. The chain should still have good ice going, and later season can be great for crappies and panfish. Miltona and Mary offer big lake opportunity that may make you feel like Mille Lacs. Set up on a break just off the flats for morning and evening walleyes. Keep an eye on this forum, I'm sure you'll get more details as that date approaches.

thanks for the quick reply, will keep this message and bring it when we head to that area. Not at all familiar with alex area so I will need it to make any sense of this along with the lake finder GPS.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
