Hey Guys, I'm curious if any forum members fish/spend time near Webb Lake. My sister has a cabin on Hanscom Lake nearby but it suffered a winter kill a few years ago and the fishing has suffered. I will be going up 2 out of the next 3 weekends and am going to bring my kayak to check out some nearby lakes. I have heard good things of nearby Long Lake and Fish Lake (Burnett County). If anyone is familiar with the area and has some tips I'd love to hear them!

I've got a cabin just down the road about 7 miles south of Webb Lake on South Twin Lake. The area is full of little lakes that have decent fishing. The ones i have tried are near where my cabin is located. South Twin, North Twin, McClain, Matthews, Chicog, Nancy, and Big Bass lake are the ones that i have fished. They are all good bass fisheries if thats what your after. You'll find crappies in most of those lakes as well. From my experience the walleye bite on these lakes comes after sunset. I think this is contributed by how clear the lakes are in the region. Hope this helps and good luck!

​Oh okay, so you're just further East on 77 then the turn off to my sisters place. I found the lakes that you were referencing. There are so many small lakes in that area it's crazy! I agree with you about the water clarity in that area - lakes are very clear. I will be targeting Bass for the most part, yes. A possible Pike or Muskie as well. Do you get up to that area much? I have a family cabin in Danbury and then my sister got her place South of Webb Lake 2 years ago.

I mainly fish for Bass. I tried out Birch Island Lake on Saturday but didn't have the most luck. Got into a few bass and pike on a spinnerbait and then a few more bass on a topwater frog but nothing over 2lbs. There were a lot of pleasure boaters on the lake Saturday which made fishing a lot of shorelines/areas difficult. I'm not sure which lake I will try next!

Sorry for the late response. Been a busy last few weeks. I get up to that area 3 or 4 times a summer and occasionally an ice fishing trip as well.  Going up this weekend actually with a large group of family and friends. Will probably turn out to be more of a drinking trip than anything else. Lol. Have you gotten a chance to try any of the other lakes i mentioned?

And yes i meant 7 miles east, not south. I've been going up there 7 years now and still somehow lose my sense of direction. Lol

I haven't yet, since we spoke I have only been up to the area once. I spent a lot of time with family and on my cabin lake - which I'm now very thankful for as my Aunt (2nd mother to me) just passed away unexpectedly last week and I have so many great memories of her from that trip to the cabin. Me and my GF floated the Namekagon River in our kayaks and did some fishing - such a beautiful river! I caught a few Smallies on topwater there.

    • get lottsa oil sunflowers out. they will come.  Just has a fox sparrow fly in.  White thoats and song sparrows should be close behind. 
    • Scare some 50 miles north Eyeguy. 
    • Couple of questions/comments... Check the draw on your AC. I assume that 15amp @ 14 awg will be good enough, but would be good to confirm. Make sure to look at the draw at start up. Have you gotten the 12 ga THNN wire yet? Seems like a lot of the companies tend to oversell the gauge of the wire. It looks like you have overkilled the gauge requirement for most of your DC circuits (i.e. lights) which is good, but if you feel it is lightweight, you might want to step up your furnace and DC outlets again Hard to tell from the schematic, but you are running both ground and positive back to the source correct? I wouldn't start tying ground circuits together. Every connector that you put in a wall is a potential fail. Obviously it is unavoidable for items on the same circuit, but the schematic looks like you are tying grounds across circuits. Just a follow on to the previous comment.... Are you spray foaming or doing batts/foam board? We did spray foam "from the outside in" against the tongue and grove before we sided it. For that reason, we cut PVC and used it as a junction boxed and then taped the ends of the PVC before foaming. All connections occur in these boxes... that way we can get to them "if" some butt connector causes a problem or we need change out something (had a few hold lights fail, and this work awesome to replace) Are you putting your hole lights on a switch? Didn't see one in the drawing Are you using pancake style ceiling lights? I was wondering if you had the capability to turn them off individually if desired. Another comment on the same topic. We put in a 3-way for the ceiling lights so that we have one switch by the entry door and one by the back bunk.... Is definitely nice when the rattle reels go off at 2 am! These are just somethings that we did... along with some things that we should have did - but it looks like you have put a lot of thought into this. It is definitely easier to do things the right way first!
    • Usually first part of may they get here. Tons of finches here yet. And juncos and the regular wood peckers. Hopefully see some cool new ones soon. 
    • Any word on Orioles heading north yet? I'm still a sterile bird void at my feeders. 
    • I'm washing every wall and ceiling in the house .... and it's kickin my butt. Pass the Advil.  
    • Well, something is broken. These links should have worked. It's been strangly inconsistant this way all along. The 2nd and 3rd are from the Ben Harper video already posted so ... yea its broken. Too bad.   https://youtu.be/Wck03Y72340   https://youtu.be/4B-VMr2-228 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B-VMr2-228  
    • Interesting, I found some info online about it.   I went to Rosemount HS.  
    • waytekwire.com has great wire plus other supplies, and is local. Puts regular store wire to shame.
    • Was curious is all,  billy goat was the bridge on parkway.
