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.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
