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.

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.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches.

      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick

      Great looking Golden Retrievers you gots there !  I’m sure Max is saying to Fred “it’s good to have you at my side my friend”  and if some of our teenage thrill seekers really want to get a thrill , let them go up to the Big V and tangle with a Muskie or two , it will cleanse their soul !!    Hey dad needs to get a Gibson Byrdland into Santa’s bones to accompany us on this song if we’re gonna keep on rocken says Max Power to Fred Fred !   ah the joys of not having to worry about ice out for the opener . Enjoy the rays today !   Bigfatbert over , but not out !!
