January Starting off with Excellent Ice Fishing!

By Joe Scegura | January 8, 2018

The ice is thick and so are the fish!  Most of the lakes I’ve checked have 18” or more of solid ice on them.  There are wheel houses and trucks as far as the eye can see around the area.  Some of the lakes have established ice roads and others only have a few anglers… Continue Reading

Decent Bite of Walleye and Panfish in Alexandria Area Lakes

By Joe Scegura | December 27, 2017

Not much has changed since last week, other than the ice has gotten thicker.  I’m finding 8″-12″ of ice nearly everywhere now, except for the few spots that froze over late.  Keep an eye out for these areas.  The easiest way to spot the thinner ice is by the noticeable difference in snow cover.  As… Continue Reading

(1″-10″ thick)  To tell you how widespread the varying conditions are, we have lakes with wheel houses on them and lakes that just completely froze over in the last 48hrs.  For the most part there is fishable ice around the edges of most… Continue Reading

Ice slowly Capping Over Lakes

By Joe Scegura | December 1, 2017

I wish I had more to report but with the unseasonable weather it’s been an uneventful few weeks. We are nearly at the same place we were the last time I reported, except warmer!  On the bright side, it is getting very difficult to find a place to launch a boat around the Alexandria area. … Continue Reading

Early Winter Fishing Update

By James Feist | November 13, 2017

Winter certainly seems to have arrived! With colder than average temps and strong winds there have been very few boats out on the water.  On the nicer days it really hasn’t been too cold out there.  If you bundle up warm it’s no colder than ice fishing, only you’re in a boat!  Of course the… Continue Reading

Fishing Update for End of October

By Joe Scegura | October 27, 2017

The fishing the past couple weeks has been very good.  I was hitting the smallmouth very hard with amazing success but I’ve recently moved onto walleye and crappie.  The smallmouth are still biting but they are now deeper than they were earlier in the month.  They will be looking for a large slow moving baits… Continue Reading
