you should post under the Alexandria forum, you will get a response there. Only lake I know of West of Alex is Reno, only fished that a few times.

I have a cabin on Mary and in the spring will go next door to Pocket. I have had some good luck. Not alot of big ones but the action is good.

Reno is south of Alex, not west. A couple other crappie lakes in that same area are Andrew and Pocket. Not sure how far west you are looking at, but I would give Ostrom's Hardware in Evansville a call. They are pretty good in telling any recent reports on both hunting and fishing in that area. They might be able to tell you where there's a bite happening on Pelican.

I too have a cabin on Mary and wqould recommend Pocket. You can even fish from the road ( I think it's Highway 4 ) but even in that area a boat is still nice with how crowded it can get.

Good Luck

I would try Pelican Lake near Ashby, it's about 30 minutes NW of Alex. Last year around this time people were catching huge crappies (Some as big as 16"-17"). If you're in town, the chain of lakes can be awesome for early season crappies. Good Luck!

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
