O/T Lake Living in Brookings Area.

7 posts in this topic

Hey Folks,

May have the possibility of relocating to Brookings SD. Living out East now with pond and 5 acres. Want to purchase a house on a lake if I come to SD. What lakes would you recommend for fishing (walleye, crappie mainly) and living on within 30 minutes of Brookings. I appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Berdman

I'd say Lake Thompson. It's between 30 and 40 miles west of Brookings. Not sure if their are any houses for sale though.

I would look at Poinsett as well. At this rate, Thompson may be a duck slough in a few years.

poinsett would be your best bet, others to look at cochrane, hendricks,oakwood (closest to brookings)...thompson if you like to have more beach every year...albert may be worth a shot too

Thanks for the info. I looked on the web and mostly see Poinsett having anything available. Didn't realize most of the lakes are farm land. I guess I'm used to every lake being full of houses out east. I take it Thompson is filling up with sediment. I will try to find some more info on the other lakes you guys have sent. Only found two realtors online. Got an interview this evening so should know more on whether I'll be relocating soon. Sure am anxious to get back to the midwest. Again, thanks for the info. Tight lines and who knows may be fishing along side you folks soon.
