Alright, I wanted to change the subject title from my previous post and the context a little bit. I was hoping I could get some help from some people with more knowledge than me.

I just talked to my dad, and he wants me to keep an eye open for some lake properties in the area. He wants to sell our family cabin in WI (just wants something bigger with the family growing, and something more centrally located) and would like to look in this area possibly.

Here's what he's looking for as far as a lake. He would like to be on a somewhat less developed lake, so not cabin next to cabin. I would say moderately developed or less would be his desire. Something somewhat private as far as the lot goes. He's been spoiled in WI, being one of only about 10 places on a 250 acre lake.

As far as the fishing goes, a quality fishing lake is a must. It doesn't have to be the greatest lake, but it needs to be a good one. Being that I almost exclusively fish muskies and have only lived in the area for 6 years, I'm not the most knowledgable here. And he doesn't musky fish, so there's no need to be on a musky lake. He's more of a panfish guy. So if the lake has a stunted panfish population, I'm not going to steer him in that direction.

So again, I'm just looking for some good fishing lakes in the area that don't have a large amount of development on them. If you'd be willing to just throw out some lakes at me that I might want to check out, or send me an email, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
AWH

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.
