Statewide Minnesota Fishing Report – March 25th, 2016

  Twin Cities Metro     ALEXANDRIA AREA The ice that remains is floating and limited, and many small lakes are now ice-free. Fishing reports have been limited to a few crappies being caught by anglers fishing from shore in some of the shallow lagoons off main-lake areas.

Statewide Minnesota Fishing Report – March 18th, 2016

ALEXANDRIA AREA A few anglers were walking on some lakes last weekend, but the shorelines have opened enough to no longer allow that.

Statewide Minnesota Fishing Report – December 11th, 2015

ALEXANDRIA AREA Ice is very limited throughout the area with some bays and small lakes holding a thin layer of ice. The big lakes also remain open so there’s no ice-fishing options available at this point. Pheasant hunters have been reporting better success and there’s plenty of geese to be had in the area.

Statewide Minnesota Fishing Report – November 27th, 2015

ALEXANDRIA AREA With the exception of some ice taking hold on the shallow sloughs and along the shorelines of some small lakes, open water was prominent early this week. Although you could probably drop a boat in most big lakes, fishing pressure has been very light.

Statewide Minnesota Fishing Report – November 20th, 2015

ALEXANDRIA AREA Trolling big baits has produced muskies on the shallow weedlines of Lake Miltona. There are good numbers of ducks and geese in the area providing decent shoots for field hunters and pheasant hunters are finding a few more birds. The second weekend of the deer season produced limited results for most groups. Christopherson’s Bait and Tackle (320) 763-3255 ANNANDALE…
