By Joe Scegura | March 9, 2018

The walleye season has left us once again, but not before we were able to put some final walleye on the ice!  As many anglers have a tradition to fish the opening of the walleye season, I also have a tradition to fish the last day of the walleye season.  We were able to catch… Continue Reading

End of February Ice Fishing Update

By Joe Scegura | February 23, 2018

The fishing remains very good around the area.  I really can’t complain about the quality of the bite for any species.  Northern, walleye, crappie and sunfish are all going quite well right now.  I expect there to be a decent number of anglers headed out this weekend for the last couple days of the walleye/northern… Continue Reading

Excellent Panfish bite in the Alexandria Lakes Area!

By Joe Scegura | February 5, 2018

  As we work our way into late season ice fishing the bite is right on track with what I’d call typical.  The walleye bite is slowing down and the panfish are stealing the show.  We have nearly two feet of great ice and almost no snow, so it’s a great year to own an… Continue Reading

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
