Giant Crappies in Alexandria Lakes


This is going to just be a quick report. In fact I’m on the ice right now. We have close to 30 in of ice everywhere I’ve checked.  The ice is very solid and we had the wheel house out last weekend.  The accesses are getting a little beat up now but you should be able to get out easily with a snowmobile or four wheeler most everywhere.

We’ve been having our best luck in 8 to 16 foot of water for sunfish and crappies. During the day we are just using Euro larvae and a #12 Lindy toad. After dark we’re using the same presentation tipped with a minnow.

We will have good fishable ice easily throughout the weekend and I will post another update the middle of next week.  This is some of the nicest weather and best fishing of the year! If you still have your ice fishing stuff out come on out and enjoy some great fishing. If you don’t have your ice fishing stuff still out, get it out! They’re biting!  Good luck.
