Wabedo Lake

Question

eckertt03

Over the summer of 2018 around July 23- Aug 5, my mom, dad, uncle, grandma and i stayed on wabedo lake. (not saying resort) Being from MO and exposed to all the woods that surrounded everything was pretty normal for us. We love the outdoors and we all love to fish. My dad and my uncle and i would go out break of dawn and dusk and a lot in between. My grandma would usually go with my uncle at the south part of the lake. Our first time on wabedo we felt very confident we knew a good amount of facts and great places to fish around the lake and what times and baits are best to use. We mostly fished from the time it would start to get dark to the time it was almost pitch black so maybe around 5-7:30-8 give or take. I slept out on the hammock one night not too far from my cabin and quite close to the woods. In the middle of the night around 1am i woke up to, what seemed like 2-3 raccoons digging around to the right of me (where the woods were). I didnt think much of it bc there was a guy in a tent at the edge of the woods so i didnt think much of it. But the way the animals scattered around and snarled sounded like it wouldnt matched something a little bit bigger than a raccoon. Thinkin it was maybe just coons or some other harmless creature i fell back asleep. My family was keeping a secret from me about noises they all heard in the woods behind where we were staying. My grandma and uncle were always out there till 9 maybe later, fishin the banks on the left side as you enter the straight to get to the sounth part. He likes to hug the banks when he uses topwater or a shallow dive crank but my grandma told me if they got no more than 20ft to the banks he would say lets get out of here and hammer it out. My family has told me they would here a strangling noice coming from so and so creature and a “whoo-ach wooo” human like sounds. Not like a squatch but more human like. My uncle was out on the boat alone one night around 8ish and told my grandma that it was a human like build hunched over the bank eating marsh grass. Im not sure how true this may be but i thiught it come on here and ask. Lastly, i promise, i was out on the boat all alone on the south part of the lake jugging for crappie around 8:45pm with a full moon. It was one hell of an eerie night, hot and cold gusts of wind that change rapidly, clouds forming tube like shapes perfectly parallel, and the lake as quiet i have ever heard it. It was a ghost town. I was about to head back to my cabin when my motor wouldnt start up for about 20-30 mins while im flipping out. I finally got it to start but eventually broke down again right where the straight is. I couldve sworn i heard heavy footsteps in the woods and small branches moving. It couldve just been my rising fear and paranoia but i dont think i saw an outline of anything. My grandma asked the resort owners, who we became very close over the 2 week stay, about a decently sized pond hidden away RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE LAKE ON THE LEFT. They didnt even wanna talk about it or what night have been in there. I just want to hear feedback if you have had the same experience. Not being dramatic just curious😂

Remer isn’t too far away...the bigfoot capital of Minnesota. The show “finding bigfoot” was in the leech lake area a few years ago. I guess it’s pretty obvious what you encountered. 😱

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.

      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      I brought a notarized letter from their mother and they required it back when I did it. The other documents prove who he is but not whether the father is spiriting him away.
