Can someone define a "inside turn" on a lake map for me?

5 posts in this topic

I talk to a lot of guys that talk about inside turns, but I must confess. I dont know if it is a turn into the lake, or into the shore......any help would be great....thanks

Look at a detailed lake map with contours. Follow the breaklines and if they make quick abnormal turns towards shallow or deep water, those are inside or outside turns.

I kind of had that idea, but I wasnt sure if inside meant a shallow running into deep (toward the lake), or deep running into shallow (toward the shore)

An inside turn is a "U" that faces the inside or middle of the lake. An outside turn is commonly descriped as an underwater point.

An inside turn is a deep water area nearer to shore than the areas around it. Some inside turns can be right up against the shore, while others can be quite a ways out. But its the area nearer to shore or a shallower area. As there can be an inside turn to a sunken island as well.
