“This is the Best Walleye Fishing We’ve Ever Had!”

2012 Fishing Opener

By / June 15, 2012

The walleye bite in the Alexandria area since 2012 fishing opener has been one of the best I can remember.  I’m not talking about just one or two lakes either, there are at least 8 lakes I know of that are kicking out nice sized walleye.  Sure we’ve had days where the bite has been […]


2014 Minnesota Fishing Opener

By / May 19, 2014

It’s hard to believe it’s already been over a week since the 2014 Minnesota fishing opener, but lucky for us the fishing has been getting better by the day.  As always on opener, some anglers did excellent and others did just okay.  We saw water temps at 45-48 degrees on many of the lakes, and […]


2015 Alexandria Area Ice Conditions

By Joe Scegura / December 5, 2015

Well, I wish I had a report of fishable ice for you, but Mother Nature just won’t make up her mind. Our small to mid-sized lakes have frozen over and blown open a couple times now.  The smaller bodies of water that have kept their ice received around 4” of wet snow this week, so […]


2015 Christmas Ice Fishing Report

By Joe Scegura / December 22, 2015

We have ice again! After the mild temps last week we are back to winter. This past weekend with lows in the single digits most of the medium to large lakes froze over. There are only a couple inches of ice on those lakes, but many shallow lakes and bays have 4-6” on them. Anglers that […]

4th of July Fishing Report

By / July 9, 2015

The fishing over the Holiday weekend was excellent!  The weather was great and the fish were hungry. The past couple weeks has been some of the best fishing of the year for me. I’ve heard reports of all species being very aggressive. Even on my evening trips it’s common to get numerous species. The majority of the walleye have […]


Aggressive Bite Still Going on the Ice

By Joe Scegura / March 10, 2017

The ice is still holding up quite well around the Alexandria lakes area.  If we keep getting these cold snaps we should have fishable ice for a couple weeks or more yet.  Currently, many of our lakes have very good ice conditions with a quality 12”-15”+ of ice.  Any place there is running water of […]


Aggressive Fall Bite in the Alexandria Lakes Area

By Joe Scegura / September 26, 2017

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 […]

Alexandria August Fishing Report 2014

By / August 22, 2014

  The Alexandria area continues to kick out some great fish.  Walleye, northern, bass, crappie and sunfish have all been plentiful.  The walleye gave us a hard time for about a week or so, but we quickly located them again and have been catching good numbers and size as of late.  The crappie also continue […]


Alexandria Fall Fishing – Bass, Crappie & Walleye

By Joe Scegura / November 6, 2015

The beautiful mild weather has made this fall one of the nicest I can remember here in Alexandria. With consistent highs in the 50’s and 60’s, I’ve noticed a record number of anglers still out on the water enjoying the fishing.  Instead of just a couple adult diehard anglers in a few boats, I’ve been […]


Alexandria Fishing Report for July

By / July 27, 2014

  The past few weeks Alexandria has encountered some of the most consistent quality walleye fishing of the year.  Generally during late July and August the walleye bite is confined to low light time periods.  Even then the quality can be difficult to come by and any cold front will most certainly change the bite […]


Alexandria Fishing Report September 2014

By / September 11, 2014

The fishing the past couple weeks has been decent. Not great but still plenty of fish.  Currently the water temp is in the mid to low 70’s.  Walleye, crappie and smallmouth are all biting, but as the water temps drop the bite will just get better. Once the water cools into the 60’s the fall […]


Alexandria Ice Update and Fishing Report

By Joe Scegura / January 27, 2016

Current Ice and Travel Conditions – With the cool temps we are making some good ice. Along with that we only have about 6”-8” of snow cover, so travel on the lakes has been quite easy. Small Lakes and Bays – Have 18”-24” of ice. Medium Lakes – Have around 14”-16” of ice Large Lakes […]


Alexandria May Fishing Report

By / May 30, 2013

It’s hard to believe that less than three weeks ago there was ice on the majority of the lakes for the Alexandria May fishing report.  Luckily the night before walleye opener the wind blew strong throughout the night opening up many of the lakes.  Anglers were pleased to see open water as the sun began […]


April 11th, Last Call for Ice Fishing!

By / April 11, 2014

We went from driving trucks and wheel houses last weekend to needing tall boots to walk on in only 3 days.  The sun is very powerful this time of year.  Couple that with 70deg temps and it doesn’t take long to melt some ice.  We still have a lot of ice to melt, but I’m […]


Beautiful Weather and Big Panfish in Alexandria!

By / March 20, 2015

When I wrote my last report it seemed possible we would have ice into May again this year.  Then the beautiful spring weather came for a week and really hit the ice hard.  Keep in mind the ice took months to make so one week of warm weather isn’t going to take it all away.  […]


Big Crappie Report – Alexandria

By Joe Scegura / March 30, 2016

Well it’s hard to believe only a few weeks ago there were ¾ ton pickups and 20 foot fish houses all over the lakes. Then, a week later we were down to ATV travel only.  Now there’s no evidence the ice even existed.  It was one of the fasted ice outs I can remember. The […]


Chase after Numerous Fish Species in the Lakes Area

December 2014 Ice Fishing Report

By / December 1, 2014

  The ice in the Alexandria area remains to be in excellent condition.  There is very little snow on the ice so with the cold temps the ice is gaining thickness quickly.  Most of the lakes have at least 6” and as much as 12”+ of good clear ice.  There is an increasing amount of […]


December Ice Fishing Report

By / January 3, 2014

Ice conditions are excellent across the Alexandria area.  I have been finding 14”-18” of ice on every lake I’ve been on in the last week.  Travel has been pretty easy with minimal areas where a 4 wheel drive vehicle would get stuck.  Most of the lakes have plowed roads, so unless you plan on exploring […]
