Hi all! I've had a YouTube channel for about a year, and recently transitioned it to being geared towards catching a fish in every lake in Waukesha County. Obviously, not all of these lakes have public access. Herein lies the issue...
I was wondering about fishing on private lakes when I don't actually know anybody that lives on it. Is it as simple as knocking on somebody's door, asking permission, and hoping they'll say yes? I'm not referring to private lakes with a small stream I can get to with wet feet, but a totally land-locked lake completely surrounded by houses.
If you're reading this and you live on such a lake, please PM me. I'd love to get permission to fish there. I just want to catch a fish, and am happy to follow whatever guidelines you set for me. Have a great bass lake you don't want ruined? I'll target panfish. Catch and release only? That's pretty much all I do anyway. Want to see my video before it's released to the public to ensure you're happy and I respected your area? By all means. The goal is just to get in, get a fish or two on film, and get out.
And while this post is not meant to be a shameless plug for my channel, I'd appreciate people checking it out and giving me feedback. Just search 262 Fishing or click the link below.
