Horseshoe Lake near Turtle Lake

5 posts in this topic

I am heading up to this lake this weekend with my nephew and looking for any information regarding the fishing on this lake as it pertains bass and walleye. Any help is greatly appreciated.

While I have never fished the lake itself, I took a gander at the WI DNR HSOforum and here's what I found...

Looks like a pretty shallow lake, Max depth 13ft. According to the DNR panfish and largemouth bass are the most common. It didn't say there were any eye's and I highly doubt there are any, with the lake being so shallow. I could maybe see some pike in there.

anyway, hope this helps.

You looked at the wrong lake then, horseshoe is deeper than that. I can't recall ever catching a sizeable bass out of there. There's a lot of docks that you might be able to catch fish out of. If you go past the no wake zone there's an area with a lot of weeds and a few pads, but it seems to be a small northern paradise. There is also another bay you may or may not be able to get in that has some nice weeds and pads. Our 16ft V hull made it, but just barely. When you approach it you'll know what I'm talking about.

As far as eyes, never tried for them in there. With a lot of recreational traffic running near the breaks you might find them on it could be tough to get them during daylight.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
