Fishing Report and Tactics for November

By Joe Scegura / November 2, 2018

Every fall seems to have its own twist.  Just when you think you know what to expect from year to year you get a fall like this.  We had our fair share of rain and much cooler temps than we would normally see for the early part of fall.  This unseasonably cool weather dropped our […]

Fall Fish Patterns in Alexandria Lakes Area

By Joe Scegura / September 28, 2018

What a difference a couple weeks can make!  Two weeks ago the heat was nearly unbearable at 7:30 in the morning… now we need heavy jackets, hats and gloves!  Along with lower air temperatures come falling water temps.  It’s truly amazing how fast animals in nature react to these cooler temps.  Almost immediately the skies […]

Decent Walleye bite as Bass frenzy approaches

By Joe Scegura / August 31, 2018

Fall is on the horizon and the fishing is still very good.  We are catching good numbers of walleye, bass and panfish.  Generally, by this time of year the walleye bite will get hit and miss, but it’s about as consistent as it can get right now.  We are catching eater sized walleye as well […]

Late Summer Update and Finding the Fish

By Joe Scegura / August 7, 2018

We are still catching walleye along with a good number of crappie, sunfish and bass.  The walleye bite has best in the evenings, but the day bite has been very good at times too.  The rest of the species are usually willing to bite all day long. Finding the fish is always the key to […]

Hungry Fish in their Summer Patterns

By Joe Scegura / July 16, 2018

  We are well into the summer patterns at this point and the fish are hungry.  Sunfish, crappie, bass and northern have been fairly aggressive.  The walleye fishing also remains good, but the best time to catch them has been during the low light time periods.  Early morning and evening have produced a lot of […]

Hot Summer Bite in the Alexandria Lakes Area

By Joe Scegura / June 22, 2018

The fishing around the Alexandria area remains strong.  The bass, northern and panfish seem to bite at will on almost every lake right now.  The walleye on the other hand have been a bit more hot and cold. One night the walleye are jumping in the boat and the next you have to work for […]

Terrific Bite for 2018 Fishing Opener!

By Joe Scegura / May 16, 2018

The Alexandria Lakes Area arguably produced the best “Opener Walleye Fishing” in the state this past weekend.  There were numerous lakes, big and small, that treated their anglers very well.  Limits of 15”-20” walleye were had by many, along with a decent number of fish going 25”-30”.  Our group was among the fortunate and we […]

Ice Out on Alexandria Area Lakes

By Joe Scegura / May 4, 2018

This year’s late ice out has to have broken some records.  Believe it or not we were on the ice sleeping overnight with a truck and an Ice castle only a couple weeks ago! Now with the ice gone for the most part, we have just over a week to wait until the MN walleye […]

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 […]

Ice Fishing Update for Early April

By Joe Scegura / April 9, 2018

We are a couple weeks into spring and it appears we are still making ice in the Alexandria area.  In fact, as I type this the thermometer reads only 15 degrees!  There is still 30” of ice in most areas and the edges that were melting have all refroze.  Keep in mind it is spring […]

Extremely Good Panfish Bite in Alexandria Lakes

By Joe Scegura / March 23, 2018

Right now the fishing is as good as it gets for bluegill(sunfish) and crappie.  We have around 30 inches of quality ice on most of the lakes and vehicle travel is quite easy right now.  The 10 day forecast shows below freezing temps at night and low 40’s to low 30’s for highs, so the […]

Walleye Season Comes to an End, and Panfish Heat Up!

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tracking Down Walleyes on the Move

By Joe Scegura / June 23, 2017

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 […]
