Crappies can be hot in the pools on Le Homme Dieu and walleye throughout the chain can be OK. I've done good on walleye near the Darling/Cowdry bridge when there's a current going through

Castaway jump on the Alexandria Chamber site. They will list accomodations according to the lakes. The FM site also has a number of resorts from the Alexandria area that are sponsors.

Another option would be Woodland resort on Miltona. All of the species you are looking for but restrained to the one lake unless you want to trailer the boat to another.

Any kids in the group? Do you need a smaller lake, or is this a bunch of guys and wind and waves are considered a good thing?

LeHommeDieu has a couple of resorts and then there is one right throught the channel to Carlos. You would have access to good panfish and big water walleye. Plus good bass and pike fishing.

If you have kids and want to keep them busy with Gills and still have a chance to go out later and fish Walleye Geneva would be a good option too.

Osakis would be another good lake, but you would be 15 minutes from Alexandria.

Good Luck!

we are mainly looking for a nice walleye lake with species to fall back on if the bite isnt happening. preferrably bass, crappie, and sunnies. something for a nice meal if we dont get into what we are looking for...any lakes like that good for walleye and other species as well?

The panfish bite is great that time of year on the chain.

We have been going up the 2nd week of June for the last 5 or 6 years. Walleye's are scattered in the pre summer pattern, some in weeds some on the deeper mid lake structure, it takes a little work to find the eye's but can be quite rewarding when found.

I like the chain because there are several different lakes to fish and you don't have to trailer the boat to a different lake to find fish, Carlos is the clearest of the lakes in the chain, but have had my best results on Le Homme Deiu for pannie's, bass and walleye, don't target the northerns much but have caught a few snot rockets casting the shoreline for bass and pannie's.

hey everyone -

thanks a ton for the kind responses...my son is pretty fired-up. Will be just three "guys" so wind and waves are no problem...the chain is appealing because of the access to multiple lakes. Drake - thanks for the email...my son are checking it out today! He has more time than I do so he is my research person.

If you stay on Le Homme Dieu, you also have easy access to the Bugaboo Bay bar! ;\)

As stated before the chain offers good panfishing, you can get some nice crappies in that same bay.

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
