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.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
