Rainy Lake, hands down for me.

The scenery, the location, the fishing, hunting, and yes even the weather.

That is my dream.....to someday live up on Rainy.

I'm lucky enough to have a place on Rainy. It truly is a great place.

Lake Vermilion and Leech Lake both of those places are great.

Millacs for how close it is and the number of trophy fishing oprotunities. A place on the north shore would be great as well. Love the scenery up there.

The exact junction where the Little Pine and the Big Pine meet just north of the Mississippi. Great fishing, incredible wildlife!

LOTW, or since this is labeled "if you had it your way" a lake with pike, musky and smallies that was catch and release!

A log cabin on a small 40- 100 acre lake with no people just trees and animals. Solar electricity and heat with running water. just me, my family, and My dog!!

I would live on West Okoboji in Iowa and have a hunting cabin somewhere else. I would rather fish 2 hrs at a time 6 days a week but you have to focus when its hunting time.

I would pick any $5M "cabin" on Lake Minnetonka or Lake Washington (Seattle). Lake Minnetonka is really a bunch of lakes in one, each with it's own misteries to uncover that would be fascinating to live on with a well rigged out Tuffy and a SnowBear for the winter. Lake Washington would be my choice for Saltwater as there is alot of good fishing reachable from LW.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
