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.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
