Check out the postings in the Alexandria Lakes Area Forum just down the page. I'm sure those folks there will be able to point you in the right direction.

Ever fish in the Valentine Refuge? I'll be there this summer. Can't wait. smile.gif

Good luck.

I'm going to Lake Mary this weekend -- how's the action there? I've never been on that lake or even in the area!

We're trying to keep you up to date on all the areas hotspots....check out the Alexandria Area Lakes forum.

Here's a quick rundown on the area: Water temps are starting to warm up...shiners are being seen under a few docks...walleyes are active in the shallows near current areas / channels between lakes...crappies are slowing a bit, but still active on the north end of Geneva, and just starting to bite on the north end of Carlos. Mary has been slow....but should heat up this week with the warmer water. Reno, Barrett, Stowes...all smaller shallower bodies have been producing a few nice 'eyes. Panfish have moved into the shallows as well, plenty of action amongst the pencil reeds.

Big celebration at the foot of Big Ole this weekend, beverage garten, street carnival / games..and then a street dance, live music...all this and great fishing too!

For more info, call us...or check out the posts on the Alex Forum....

All excellent choices! Miltona is the big lake in the county, and is taking a while to warm up. Latest word was that some walleye's were starting to bite along the east side...near creeks and outlets....find the current. Some nice northerns on miltona, too....check the emerging cabbage beds and pencil reeds. Osakis has had a good bite on the last week...should be getting even better...check the osakis posts for some great tips....Geneva has been yeilding some nice crappies on the north end, but it's slowed down a bit. The walleye bite here and on LeHommeDieu should get hotter this weekend. Decent pike on Geneva too. Try the emerging weed beds in the southeast corner. As long as you're on the chain...zip up to Carlos and check out the area around the dam...outlet to the Long Prairie river...usually a good spring pike spot...shore fishing or in the boat from the main lake. Daredevls will do well here. Any other questions give a call....always willing to help out a 'husker!...

good luck this weekend!

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
