Our group will be arriving in Alex this Saturday. Of course we are looking for fishing advice. But just as important... where's a good bar to watch the Vikes? I'd be happy buy ya one if we should happen to run into ya there. Haven't been up there for a long time so directions may be needed. It can't be too quiet of a place since there are eight of us.

I would go to DooLittles Air Cafe, it just went up a few years ago, it's on the north of 94 on 29 can't miss it, they have great food. We go there alot in the fall during the hunting season.

I would try Bugaboo Bay. It is north of town across the street from the old wharf. Otherwise D'Micheal Beas would be another choice.

Have fun!

Creek kid...you could also try Raapers, right downtown...sports bar motif also. There's a new place north of town on 29, called Blondies...near the state park...also a sports bar. For a more rural style local kinda place, try the Leaf Valley Mercantile on county road 6 (not far from the west shore of lake miltona)

good luck and good fishing...go vikes!

Thanks for all of the suggestions! In about 86 hours we should be rolling into Alex. (Can you tell I've been waiting for this trip for awhile?) Ghotierman, will we go past your shop if we drive through Alex on the way to Carlos? Iused to live on Geneva but can barely remeber the town. I was planning on stopping before we check into the resort. From the posts I've see it sounds like you're always willing to help us "wanderers" find some fish. That's what we need! We'll need some bait too. C-ya Saturday somtime!

Creek kid...our shop is right on your way...we're on the north end of town on Hwy 29..(just about a block up the frontage road from McDonalds)...we're right at the heart of the chain, and always willing to help 'wanderers' weekenders, semi-pro's, novice anglers, anyone...to have a successful outing on the water in the Alexandria area...
hope you can stop in....
should have redtails and shiners for the weekend...

good luck and good fishing...

      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.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
