I fish in the Alexandria area. The walleyes were a little slow, but many lakes had great crappie fishing.

Now the crappies have slowed down, and the walleyes are biting great. At least on the 2-3 lakes I like to fish on....

Don't feel left out, Upper Red locked up for almost two weeks, last couple of days it has started firing back up, crazy how that lockjaw can cover the whole state sometimes.

Caught 16" and a baby 8" with a red #4 inline spinner. Seven feet of water on the weed line. A lake 5 mins or so away from coon rapids. Went out around 8pm and got off near 9:30. Kinda tough with this hot weather.

We'll hope you find them. Let us know if ya slaughter some.

With the chop on Osakis yesterday, I would have thought the 'eye's would have been easy picking. We threw everything at them. Leeches, vertical jigging drop offs with crawlers, bottom bouncing, slip bobbers, tossing cranks, with very little results.

The 3 boys and I just got back to the waterville area fron Alex. area, we fished 3 different lakes in the Alex area, the walleyes we caught were all in 8 ft. of water in the weeds or close to the weeds on the chop sides of the lakes. If you weren;t cleaning weeds off, you were not gettig bites

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
