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

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
