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.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
