I have been out on several Alexandria area lakes in the past week and have found that the panfish action is picking up. Most of the fish I have found are coming out of 12-17 feet of water, Crappies at sunset in 17-25 feet. Haven't hit any real hot action, but able to find some everywhere I have been. With the recent snow there are some slippery spots on the ice, but travel, atv or foot is very easy. The ice is consistently safe for this kind of travel. Good luck fishing!

Have you been out on big Chip? Is the ice safe for an atv from the access to Johnsons bay? Used to take some nice sunnies there in the winter!

I have not been on Big Chip, I see there are houses on the lake, mostly on the west side. I would be comfortable with an atv or snowmobile. I'm going by there tomorrow, I'll check it out and get back.

I didn't make it to the access today, I got a flat and by the time I got it fixed I was in a hurry and headed the other direction. I fished Moses tonight searching for pan fish for a while, Not finding any I set up for the evening bite for waleyes. 5:30 24 inch pike, 6:00 20 inch pike, 6:02 small walleye. released all of them, fished til 7:15 no other fish. The three I caught were the only ones I saw. Time for a break, I'm going skiing tomorrow. Hope you all have great luck fishing this weekend.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
