Best Lake

13 posts in this topic

I recently posted regarding a trip I had with my dad on Madison Lake. During the trip my dad started talking about retiring and possibly buying a place on a lake in that area. I have been looking around and there are plenty of places available but on a lot of lakes I know nothing about. I have looked up the lake stats on the DNR website but I am looking for some more guidance. So if you guys were to buy a house on a lake in the Blue Earth/Waseca/LeSuerer county area strictly based on fishing which lake would it be and why? By the way, he likes to fish for pan fish and walleye.

Thanks

I have only been in this area for about 3 years, but i don't think you could go wrong by getting a place on Madison or Tetonka. Both lakes have been good to me for both panfish and walleyes, and like I said , I'm new to the area!!!.... Todd wink.gif ......................BTW would you like to go to the fall get together? I have a new boat and an extra seat if your interested?

Everytime I go and fish on Tetonka, I think of selling my house on Kelly/Dudley Lake to move to that lake. If only it where 15 minutes closer to the freeway.... frown.gif

Tetonka. Most consistent multi-species bite in the area with the least amount of recreational traffic.

I think it was in January-March when this post was last up.

I think Tetonka was the lake of choice then also.

I found the other post and it sounds like Tetonka is the lake of choice. I have a question though. When I look at the Minnesota DNR website and their fish "stats" it looks like Madison has better numbers. Does anyone know why this is? I trust you guys but I am just wondering.

Todd....I actually have the day blocked off on the family calendar for the event but I thought about trying to get my dad come up for it. If he isn't up for it I may take you up on your offer. I will get back to you soon. Also, thanks for the invite.

If you plan to attend the Fall Get-Together, please respond in that post so I can keep an active roll call of who is and is not coming. Thank you.

As for the fish "stats" varying from lake to lake, I guess I don't have a good answer. I'm thinking sampling or collection points would have something to do with it.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
