Friends recommended that we take a look at Pine Lake. Found it to be good fishing. Stocked with blue gills, walleye, perch and bass.

I go here a lot, to sit and read, sit and think, or just watch people. It's quiet. good place to sit and think. Good place to fish or ride in your boat. There is a place close by called Blue Heron where you can rent a house boat and spend the night on the water.
