Lake Lots --Please help

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, I have been looking for lake lots within about a 50 mile radius of the Alex area. Nothing too fancy. either something with an old small 1 bedroon type cabin or an empty lot where I could put a trailer, not sure which is the better way to go confused.gif Searching the M.L.S doesnt help much since they show mostly resort lots or co-ops, which wouldnt work since I want year round access. Or they show lots on farm ponds they somehow call a lake.

I would love to hear thoughts from some of you that have been down this road before along with any tips on where to look (without the M.L.S thing) or advise on what possible troubles to watch out for that you dont realize untill its too late. This is getting a little frustrating but I wont give up, where theres a will theres is a way crazy.gif

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pete

I.C, there is a realtors site in Alex. that has all the up to date listings. You can check it by lake, price or area. I think you can locate it by googling alexandria realty.

As far as the cabin vs trailer-

I know that you cannot place trailers on the lake in some cities/counties around the state, so you should check with the local govt.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
