Wall Lake info.

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, Planning on coming up to look at a place on wall lake but its on the south end of the lake and there seems to be some sort of channel that seperates it from the bigger north end. Dnr report says something about unnavigable? Anyone have any idea what this is all about?

Any more info in general about this lake would be greatly appreciated such as how green / algea bloom it gets in the summer for swimming or what the rec. traffic is like etc.

thanks, iron_cowboy_69@yahoo.com

Lived darn near on that lake a whole summer...fished it almost daily.

The north/south parts are navigable. To the far west shoreline, off the end of a long, shallow underwater point there is a section where boats can get thru. Go slow. grin.gif

South end is deeper with not much structure, stiff drop offs along shore.

I don't recall much of an algae bloom in the lake, however, I can't rule it out.

It's a nice lake. Swam in it many times. Traffic wise, not horrible...

Not too much for sandy shorelines if that's your thing. The long submerged point that is between the north and south end is a nice spot to swim. There are homes with swimming beaches but just as many that are a bit weedy and mucky. It can have a bloom happen but since the septics around the lake were updated it seems to have improved water quality.

Fishing can be OK. Kinda like most lakes that size, when it's hot it gets pounded and takes a few years to rebound. Recreational traffic on the lake is not awful but can be busy on weekends. All in all, a nice lake with a good location.

Make certain you check what your property taxes are going to be on that lake place. Here in OtterTax County there appears to be no upper limit. Lake cabin owners are a prey species in this part of the state.

I've lived on the lake for the past 7 years. I've never seen more than 6 or 8 boats at one time ...even on the opener. The south end gets very little boat traffic. Fishing is great. It's sooo quiet at night you can hear a mouse f*rt from 500 yards. There is an alge bloom that lasts for about 2 weeks but you'll get that on most lakes. You need to check the yard once the frost goes out as some of the homes here have "wet" yards due to springs and run off.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
