With warmer than normal tempertures at this point of the ice season and the bite is HOT......who couldn't take these conditions? Right, and the ice conditions are very good on most of the small and mid-sized lakes. But on the larger lakes in the area you should still b...

It's been a while since we've had ice before Thanksgiving, but it sure felt great to walk on water. That's if it was good ice and we found several lakes that averaged 5-7 inches. The small to mid-sized lakes are good and the larger lakes still have some spots of open w...

Over the past week and a half the weather has been tropical with hot temperatures and high humidity. This trend of weather reminds me of the days when I lived in Louisiana. Days could be down right unbearable, but it was something you got used to. The fishing when it g...

Two week ago we were on 28" of ice and the thought was that we would be lucky to have open water before the MN Walleye opener. That was the thought, but as mother nature loves to prove things wrong we will have open water for the walleye opener......whew! But seriously...

It's mid March and the late ice run is on......right? Well, you would think so,but the way the conditions of the ice would get you think we are still in February. We have 28+ inches of ice on many of the lakes in the Alexandria area and with the extended forecast i...

How does that saying go.....If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. Or in like a lamb and out like a lion. Something like that I guess, but the one thing that is for sure is that March is a lion all month. Anglers, especially a panfish angler like me...

Well, it's that time of the year that I call it the dog days of winter. Fish start to slow down and finding them isn't the problem, but getting them to bite is a challenge. On many of the lakes in the area there's a definitive area where the groups or commu...

The difference a week makes in the weather and it was a tough bite this weekend. High pressure and cold bitter temperatures certainly changed the way the fish reacted, but you can still catch fish if you have patience. And if your willing to do some presentation change...

It's been a long stretch of this arctic blast until this past weekend when we finally received a break in the weather. And it was a welcome one to say the least. First of all, we have great ice and most lakes have 15-20 inches and very little snow. So the travel has be...

With the days getting shorter and the colder temperatures becoming unavoidable, the one thing that is for sure is the good fishing in the area. This week we did some walleyes and panfish with very good results.

First the crappies and bluegills, all I can say is "wow"! T...
