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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
