Alexander report

Recommended Posts

treeclimber

Here is my report after an afternoon on Alex. The fishing was slow but in the end was a great afternoon on the ice. I fished my favorite winter spot from 2:30 to 5:30 and managed only to land two walleyes but the best part was one measured just shy of 29" and with the girth on her I figure she was close to 10lbs. Worse part was I missed an even bigger one 15 minutes earlier. Check out the picture.

I was fishin in 30 feet of water off a steep break. Both fish landed and the one I missed all came on a blue/glow glow devil tipped with a (whole crappie minnow) I think if I would have moved up on the bar into shallow water at dark I probably would have caught a few more fish. I am heading up ther again this week and will give you a report.

Kook: Yes that big girl went back in the lake. I normally don't keep any eyes over 18". I prefer 14 to 18" for eating otherwise they go back. Went out again this evening and tried a bit shallower (20") without so much as a bite. Not sure where the fish are but they werene"t there. I did notice several houses and trucks off the east side of haystack both days. Maybe they did better there?

Treeclimber: Have you been down in the SE corner by the Bible Camp yet? I've done pretty good on the bar that projects out from the rushes and then drops into a pretty nice hole. Rock and rubble on top per the Aqua View. Bill

that is a great fish. Gotta love that lake! Nice of you to put her back so the rest of us get a shot at her also. We mainly fish Alex in the summer and have been there a couple of times on the hard water over the last couple of years.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
