My parents are looking at property on Third Silver Lake, I was looking for lake info on the DNR lakefinder but it was scarce. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this lake (Depth, fish species?). They were told that it is stocked with Walleyes by the lake association, but I am a bit skeptical. Thanks

Nice looking lake, but I would think it would be prone to freeze out. If there are some springs, that might negate the freeze out factor. I dont think it is very deep. There are no parking signs along Hwy 83, and I have seen people fish there and launch boats before - but the rip rap that has been put in has reduced that to nil. There is no public access.

I have heard of talk of stocking, but dont have any confirmation of that. I know Second Silver used to be a brood pond for walleye fry, and the fishing there was quite good several years ago, so that would lead me to think that Third might have good potential.

All in all, I think it would be a nice lake to own property on, in a great area. You can be on West Battle and Ottertail in minutes.

Hi, we are looking to buy land on the 3rd Silver Lake. Did your parents buy land on this lake? If so any information you can provide would be helpful. 

 

Thanks

Gerarddad where is 3rd Silver Lake?  I see the post you are replying to is over 8 years old and the person you replied to has only has 22 posts total and hasn't been online in a long time.  Maybe someone else can help you out for the information you are looking for.

      yea I keep thinking of getting a different motor but runs good. its a 40 Johnson. I am happy with the boat itself and don't plan on a different one either.

      There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam. in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself.  If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds.  I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up. Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there. There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.

      Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.

      I was the one with the 26-1/2" fish yesterday that weighed 5.15 #s. Was a skinny spawned out walleye!  Catch her again in 2/3 weeks and she will be 6/7 lbs for sure! 
    • JerkinLips
      I'm sure that the 5.15 pound walleye was a skinny 26" fish.  The regulations book lists a 20" at 2.7 pounds and a 26" at 6.2 pounds.

      Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.

      Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.   I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#.  Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish.  The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#.  Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart.  Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?   Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
