Parking on north side of Wabedo lake

Recommended Posts

BARNEZ

Went to Wabedo to do some fishing like I always have, to find you can't park on the street on the north side to drag my shack to my spot.I've been doing it for years and went there to find no parking between signs everywhere just wondering why?Some people don't have 4 wheelers and snowmobiles and don't like driving across the whole lake to get somewhere I can walk 100 yards from the road.Seems to me the tradition of old style fishing is dead.Is parking there an inconvenience to home owners or someone else,cause I see little paper signs there as well.

The problem is that people park right on the curve by the bridge. I guess they are too lazy to move their trucks after unloading. I park way up towards the stop sign and have never had a problem, I walk out. Also I've talked to several people that live right in that area and they are real unhappy with people diving atv's down that step bank by the creek. If you go there late ice and see the damage you'll see why they are unhappy. Another option is unloading and parking at the Boy Lake access. I live in Fifty Lakes and see more and more places where you can park and fish from shore or access the lake for ice fishing get closed down. Too bad because not everyone owns a boat and those kind of spots are great for taking kids fishing from shore

That's where I always parked, but the new signs go all the way up there. As far as the dirt getting ripped up it's public land there right.Or instead of spending money on signs they should make it easier to get on there for the outdoorsman.

I am not familiar with that area but I've ran into issues like this before and IF its public land between the road and lake anyone can access it. No body can put no parking or tresspassing signs on the road, in the ditch or on public land. They don't own the freakin road, sounds like the resorts and plow truck drivers on Mille Lacs getting mad when you access "their" road from another way and they want you to pay for using their road, even though you accessed it another way.

In defense of the people who put the signs up, IF they own the land between the road and lake then I don't blame them for putting up signs when people just walk or drive through their property. Also people will put signs to deter people from going onto the lake so fishing pressure goes down. I don't think its their responsibility to make it "easier" for the guy who comes up a few times a year to fish the lake, use the public access like everyone else does.

The same thing happend to us years back in this spot, we went out a few times one year at that spot and came back the next year and it was all posted, some people were still using the spot and also parking on the road when there was no parking signs but we left and never went back. Cass county has a great web site and you can see who owns land parcels, you may want to check it out and see and if its public land and if it is then call the local sheriff.

There are paper printed signs by a persons house uderstandable, but then a couple weeks later their are actually brand new, werent there before,NO PARKING signs. As far as the access for walking on the lake I'm sure it's public.I meant the state paying for the signs not home owners.Oh well though,I guess I can drop my stuff off there and walk the 1/4 mile from the little boy access. Because like Bob Dylan says The times they are a changin.

Go into paying property tax on right hand side

then into parcel information

then you can do differant search options and it will show you maps of the land and if you keep zooming in and it will give you plot numbers, then you can enter the plot numbers and it will tell you who owns the land.

This spot is public, road right of way, but it is being abused. If people would'nt park on the curve and leave garbage on the road I don't think there would be a problem. If people would just walk the 300yds out there, this is an early ice point of access. Two weeks ago I was up there and was able to drive from the access on the other end of the lake about 3 miles. That would be a long walk! I was told that the property owners on that road had the sheriff have the signs put up. It just comes down to common sense and respect for other people. Those that abuse a privilege," take it away from us all !!!!" I agree with Bluegill 1510.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!
