My family and I are looking at going to the alex area the first week of June. I am not familiar with the area so does anyone have any advice on a good lake that will keep my wife, 7 and 5 year old busy catching fish? Preferably nice size panfish. I heard Lake Darling, Lake Carlos or Osakis are good ones. Also am looking for a good resort. Thanks so much!

Viking Bay Resort on Lake Miltona is what I would recommend. We go there every August and just hammer the panfish. The resort has a great beach with a sandy swimming area, just great for kids. I don't work for them so I am not advertising, I am just telling about my great experience. The great bonus is that after dark if you want you can hit the flats for some bonus walleye fishing. Just my 2 cents

Been spending the last few years on the chain, good panfish action at that time of year. Bergs resort on Le Homme Dieu is where we stay, close to town too.

I would recommend Woodand resort on Miltona. They have great cabins and a super beach. The kids can catch panfish right off the dock.

The Chain being (Darling and Carlos) Both have Multiple Resorts on them! It all depends on what you want! if you want to rent a cabin or a room and Such! Also Osakis does have some very nice resorts and the big panfish can be caught on that lake! All Of them would be good choices.

Depending on what you want...Lake Amelia, about 20 miles from Alex is pretty laid back. Clean lake...only 1 resort on the lake.

Thanks for the input. It sounds although I can't go wrong with any lake around that time of year. Thanks again

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
