Lake Cabin Search

Recommended Posts


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.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      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
