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.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
