Amount of lakeshore development on Potato Lake?

2 posts in this topic

Our fishing group is looking at Potato Lake next year for a possible week long fishing trip in June.

Can someone advise the amount of lakeshore development? Is the lake loaded up with cabins or is some/much of it undeveloped?

How about fishing pressure during the week? Lots of ski boats/jetskis?

Thanks in advance.

Depends on which part of June. Early June won't have as much activity, late June can get pretty busy in the afternoons and evenings. I'd suggest getting out on the water early, as mornings are good on Potato and the recreational boaters don't start to come out until 10 or 10:30.

Potato is pretty well developed, but there are some sections where the houses are hidden in the trees. It's a good lake, nice clean water, a lot of structure and has nice fish of every species. What are you primarily fishing for?

If you end up coming, give me a call or shoot me an email, I'll give you some ideas. Muskybug is another good resource.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
