Mr. B

Area Lake Info.

4 posts in this topic

My wife and I are looking to move from Glenwood down to the Willmar area. We would be selling a house on Lake Scandi. and looking to buy something on one of the area lakes. Can anyone tell me about Eagle Lake, Nest Lake and Lake Florida? Or any other ara lake that would be a good choice to look at.

We are looking to move to a lake that is more affordable than Green but has good water quality and ok fishing.

Any help would be great.

Florida is the cleanest lake of the 3 you mentioned. Nest & Eagle can get a little green in July & Aug. All can be good fishing at certain times of the year. Also fishing will vary from year to year on all of these lakes.

I think we are looking for a house. With a newborn in the house and the Grandparents visiting all the time the house got very small very quickly.

My wife is also looking at being closer to a town. Living 20 miles south of Glenwood was a bit far for her. She is hoping to be with in 10 minutes of grocery shopping.

Hopefully we can pull this off. I hate to move again only after two years, but we just need more room.

Thanks for the help.

      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.
