Favorite Lake/Area and why?

If money was no object, what lake would you buy or build your dream house on, and why? Would it be for the fishing, the watersports for the family, or the nearby area (restaurants/things to do)? Or a combination of all three?

This is easy, the original gold coast on the Chippewa Flowage.  I grew up fishing this lake, (over 50 years now) and love the area.

If money was no object, why not go places and fish with guides. Screw having your own boat and all the work that goes with it.

If fishing was the only reason to build a "dream" home on a body of water it would be near Fairbanks, Alaska. I might have said someplace in Minnesota but not after the nonsense that has been going on over there the past few years with some lake home owners basically trying to limit public access. It's a mess and you can pretty much guarantee that they'll come back with some more shenanigans in the future.

Lakes in the Ely Mn. Region. Cool little town access to the boundary waters and very nice people and beautiful country. Good fishing is a bonus.

Silly question. If money was no object I'm not so sure owning lake property for any reason would be the thing to do. Already built a dream home on water in northern WI for the fishing primarily, It's overrated, ongoing expense and lots of work to keep it. Fishing, water sports, and food joints are great in the area but even that gets old in time. And if I had all my time to spend there it would get real old real fast. To be honest if money were no object I have no clue what I'd do. Maybe learn to fly?

I would probably spend my summers at one of the many resourceful lakes in Canada......plenty of fish....fewer folks fishing for them; definitely a walleye fisherman's dream.

Ok.....to be practical...I have fished the TFF for nearly 20 years and that is my go to spot. Love the solitude, the diversity of structure and it is within a reasonable driving distance. The spooks....those damn stumps that pop up in 15 ft of water are scary....but that is what keeps the recreational stuff off that sacred place.

HEY..... I KNOW WHAT THAT  MEANS.

But I seen on teevee how the Mississippi is all filling in with SAND, and SILT, and it's gonna be nothing but a DITCH in a couple more years.

Ah well, back to my postage stamp in the Nicolet.

I hear the bluegills are biting out on Noquebay.

Rainbowrunner - The fishing on the Mississippi sucks...along with the deer and waterfowl hunting...

I sort of "bristle" at the "anti-Wisconsin" sentiment. There's nothing inherently "anti-Wisconsin" about coming to the realization that inland fishing (and hunting) in Wisconsin isn't what it was 50 years ago. If you like to catch panfish and bass and catfish inland lake and river fishing is probably as good as it's ever been. I wouldn't have the faintest clue where to catch a bluegill in LOTW.

Maybe we ought to add the Mississippi River to the list of "good places left to fish in Wisconsin"? I haven't fished there for quite a few years, but I was astounded at the sheer numbers of fish (of all species) in the mighty Miss.

A buddy of mine gifted me with a bound volume of Fishing Facts magazine from way back when it was more of a newspaper. Eye-bulging stringers of walleye out of Okauchee Lake. Anybody catching any eye-bulging stringers of walleye out there now?
