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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
