Any of them! Bring a shovel. I was on two lakes yesterday with limited travel possible. If you've got good clearance, good tires, avoid the drifts you can travel most places. I don't, so I've been limited to little truck travel. 1/2 ton ext. cab chev. Lots of frame, running boards...to get hung up on. I beleive Reno is driveable, Minnewaska,(rough trail) Big chip, (plowed on to access, stuck after that) Brent

My father and I are coming up to the Alexandria area this weekend and am not real familiar with the area. I was curious (and I know with the snow there has been less people out) if anyone had any tips for a good crappie lake/bite to start at. We are willing to break through the snow but just having a hard time deciding where to go with so many choices. Thanks for any help!

There is probably 10 to 14 inches of snow on the lakes, and slush starting to build under the snow as the weight of the snow starts to push water onto the ice. Be careful from this point out.

Thanks for the help. I was checking out the map of smith and it doesn't seem to have a whole lot of structure. Is there one side of the lake that is more productive than the other or just need to punch a bunch of holes. I hear a lot about Osakis, but I have never fished it. Thanks again.

      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.
