Fish-able Ice Present on Some Lakes, but ALWAYS use Caution


Currently the ice conditions in the Alexandria lakes area are very inconsistent. (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


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


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


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

Smallmouth Bass on a Feeding Fury in Alexandria Lakes Area!


The fishing continues to be amazing!  I really think the smallmouth fishing has been getting better every year.  These fish are on an absolute terror right now.  The average sized fish is 17”-19” and they are in high numbers.  The largest fish recently went well over 6 pounds!  It was 23” long with a 17”… Continue Reading

Aggressive Fall Bite in the Alexandria Lakes Area


Fishing  over the last two weeks has been down right outstanding!  There are reports of amazing crappie, walleye and smallmouth catches coming in.  The fish are biting like it’s fall even though we have summer weather,  It’s hard to beat that combination!   I’ve been guiding for smallmouth lately and they are extremely aggressive.  We… Continue Reading

Variety of Fish on the Bite for Late August


There is a pretty strong mixed bag of fish being caught in the Alexandra area right now.  The sunfish and crappie bites seem to be the most consistent, while the walleye action remains fair for most anglers. For every great day of walleye fishing there seems to be another day where the bite is much… Continue Reading

Chase after Numerous Fish Species in the Lakes Area


The walleye fishing in the Alexandria Lakes Area has been a little more hit-and-miss lately. We are still seeing some amazing catches coming in but there are more days here and there where the bite is a little slower for walleye. I expect this hot and cold bite to continue into October. We are still… Continue Reading

Strong Walleye Bite in the Alexandria Lakes Area


The walleye fishing in Alexandria still remains very strong.  In fact the past week has been as good as it gets.  We were able to catch quality limits for every angler that entered the boat!  As well as some big fish to let go!  It’s important to note that catching walleye at this rate in… Continue Reading

Tracking Down Walleyes on the Move


The walleye fishing remains quite good around the Alexandria area.  Since my last report the fish have been on the move.  They went from holding in 12’-17’ of water in the weeds, to roaming the outside weed edge in 18’-24’.  Anytime you have moving fish you have to be willing to move with them.  I… Continue Reading
