Solitary boater originally uploaded by Jayesh Naithani
This photo was taken on Crystal Lake in Burnsville and makes it seem like a much more beautiful lake than I remember from shore. I have never personally boated on any lake in Minnesota, let alone the South Metro but have been fortunate enough to hitch a ride with Sank on his boat in Wisconsin yet I wonder where we should head out on to the water around town should the opportunity arise.
We’ve always talked about purchasing a canoe to tool around local lakes with The Rooster but without any clear guidance on which would be best we’d be lost at sea (ha). What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon but eating a picnic lunch and catching dinner, right?
So what lakes in the South Metro do your recommend either for fishing or just boating around in a canoe? Which ones would you recommend for those people with boats that can handle an actual motor?
