where are the pix of the cabin and the lake at this Waldon Pond?
No "Walters" in this lake but a damn good place to kick back and have a few brews.
awesome! I like it. that cabin sitting on land that has water edge? nice lake. perfect spot... u alone up there? any othesr on it too? how big is it, acres? how far from home?.... the green color blends in nicely with trees, etc... have you had the place long...? do you fish in it too? sorry for all questions... just that a cabin in the wood in northern MN has a certain appeal! u get up there in winter... of course, you know I would have to have a wood burning fireplace in it... a bit 54" estate model... thanks for the pix and showing it... definitely a place for a cold one... or two...
Only drawback is it's a property site lease so we own the cabin and outbuildings but lease the land site. Beautiful area although the deer population is decimated due to mismanagement of wolves. But that's another story.
Cabin, shed, sauna, and outhouse on the site. Northern pike are the primary quarry in the lake. Bugs are bad in the summer but still a great place to hang out.
well, u know what they say: possession is 9/10ths of the law... are the pike tasty? never ate any. but I see they can get pretty big... can u catch the pike from shore?
svk: is this wood stove up at the cabin?
Yes. Sauna stove.
Beautiful place svk!
Pike are very tasty. Every bit as good as walleye. Most people avoid them as their meat has a row of lateral bones that must be removed with some fancy filleting. Once you get it figured out its very easy.
"Walter" is any big fish (watch the movie "On Golden Pond" for the reference). Walters can also mean walleyes. This lake is void of both but good fishing is not far away.
You could probably catch them from shore but better fishing is on the other side of the lake.
Yup, Pike are delicious! I was shown how to remove those extra bones years ago by a central MN resort owner, but doubt I would remember now.
We cooked a good deal of pike and they were awesome.....much fun to catch and eat.
Thats Pretty Cool
I like the setup! That looks like a nice place to hang out!
My little IWB in my shop...
Very Cool Story!

My hound mutt laying in front of my magnolia stove. Did the whole hearth and set up myself. Pretty tickled how it turned out.

Ha think ill pass. I got a hell of a deal on the slate tiles but damn it takes a lot of grouting to fill all those 4" tile seams ha. If i ever build one again ill go with bigger tile!
