That sounds fun. Bet Will would like traveling up a creek to another lake. I will definitely try both places.
Deer Lake, Burnett County
I have fished deer in Polk cty before. There is another I saw on the map by Webb lake. I like small lakes. Might try Connors....caddotte.....fish.....several little lakes like that. I will try Benoit for sure. I will post reports and hopefully pictures!
Thanks for the info vger. I have a small fishing boat that rides pretty low to the water. It doesn't fair well on bigger lakes if there is any wind at all. Yellow....Devils....Mckenzie....birch island....any of the bigger lakes in the area become not fish able for me with any higher wind.
deer lake has Muskie? doesn't list it on lake link. That's an added bonus.....Will my son would love getting a muske. I have fished a few lakes in the area....Minerva, Burlingame, Faulk, long, Des Moines, lake 26........but want to try others too. Will is really wanting to get into some largemouth. Thanks for the suggestions!
Yes, it's a very nice lake. Clean with viz to about 10' or so. Primarily known for Musky but also a good walleye, base, and pan fish lake. Work the weed line on the north shore of the lake for best results. Jig and meat or plastic are good, cranks work well if you're doing a slow troll.
Good luck and tight lines.
