Lake Suggestions

My wife and I were out on Big Chippewa a couple weekends ago fishing for bass, but we didn't have much luck. Has anyone been out there lately or have any suggestions to offer? How about for other lakes in the Alex area? Thanks.

You may want to check out the carlos chain of lakes, as these are all good bass lakes. Lake Geneva is a good bass lake, and also good for panfish. Lake Lehommedieu ( you'll have to excuse the spelling) is also a great bass lake you could try. There are so many lakes in the alexandria area that are great for bass fishing. Give these a try and I think you'll be satisfied. Good luck!

I'll second walleyekings suggestion. the chain is a great all around fishery. There are several other small, bass friendly lakes as well...hard to know where to start. Victoria, on the end of the chain, and then the 'lower chain' lakes like Cowdry, and Brophy are also good choices.

The big lakes like Miltona and Ida are also great for bassin' with some nice Smallies in Ida.

Give a call or stop in when you're up here next time, and we can offer a few more suggestions and look at the maps...

Sounds good, thanks for the suggestions. By the way, I am just curious since I have already been to Big Chippewa I would like to see if anyone has fished it and how they saw some success?

Is Ida the best choice for smallies in the fall?

I'm considering goin to Lake Carlos State Park this weekend. Is Carlos and the other lakes good for walleye fishing?

cartfan....yes, carlos and the rest of the chain are good for walleye fishing...especially in September. Carlos is turning on right now, and Geneva is typically good in the fall. Stop by the shop if you get a chance, and let us know how you do...

good luck and good fishing..

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
