I haven't been back to Amery in years and years. This is so wonderful to see!!

Glad you enjoyed it. I will try to post some more along for you. Where are you located now?

This reminds me of a lake that I used to fish, it almost makes me want to get my rods out again after 30 years! The water is very clear and, by the look of the twigs, it is shallow for some way out.

Now the Lake above on the map is Pike Lake and so it may give a clue to the type of fish there, but what of North Twin Lake?

Your fishing tag shows mainly winter fishing so would this lake be fished when frozen?

And that’s a nice wild flower in the foreground. Are the buildings holiday homes?

Hi Pedro,

This lake is a few miles away in town and we have lots of lakes by us that my husband is more familiar with but to the best of our knowledge it would have sunfish and maybe even northerns in it. Yes, I believe they do some ice fishing on this lake as well. In the summer there is fishing and recreational boating.

The wildflower may be part of why I took this photo. I took it one day when driving around town trying to take some photos for an exchange student from Korea that spend a lot of time at our house. I just remember thinking this would make a pretty photo for her as one of her host homes was not too far from this lake.

Since this lake is in town most of the homes on it are year round homes. In fact our optometrists office is on this lake & might even be visible in the photo.

Glad you enjoyed it and glad I could give you a better feel for it by answering your questions.

I meant to say that the photo was taken near a public beach where you could swim but we think maybe people don't swim there so much any more. I will have to pay more attention this summer.

Thanks for the info! It is easy to forget that your lakes would be so much bigger.

Out of curiosity I found this site that has information about the fish. I would suspect that you would take the fish to eat?

In Britain there is a huge angling interest, but most would be returned to the water, unless they were trout.

Yes, the fish would be eaten most of the time. My husband fished a lot just before it stopped being safe to be on the ice. He caught a lot of sunfish and would have 20 or so fish to eat every few days. He literally eats fish three meals a day when he has fish. The rest of us are not that crazy about fish... an occasional meal is fine but not three times a day every day for a week.

Actually the site you found is for another North Twin Lake which is in the Northwoods northeast of us. This area has huge lakes which are summer retreat lakes for the Chicago area amongst others. It is a gorgeous area and I will have to try to post a few photos from there some time. We went there camping one summer for a few days.

This North Twin is in Polk county and is 28 feet deep and 135 acres. There are actually several lakes in the same county with the same name, such as Mud Lake, Round Lake and Pine Lake. I counted up to 8 duplicate names just scanning the list of lakes in the county. I will try to provide a link to another site that gives information on all the lakes in our county and what fish are caught in them. Here is what it had to say about the fish in North Twin Lake.....Specializing in Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass and Bluegill. Walleye and Crappie also caught. Maximum depth of 28 ft. Ok - here is the site- Wisconsin Lakes Just keep scrolling down the page and you will find it under Twin Lake, North.

Thanks for your great questions!

Pedro hope you weren't trying to read as I was posting. Took three tries for me to get the new link just right so it would work for you. I am knew at all this.

Hope you are having a great day!

I like the photo, but that's not an accurate location. There is no tree growing over the lake on the Keller Avenue vantage.

joyfotos on June 13, 2013

Thanks Ray! Alas, they cut the tree down a year or so the location is correct the landscape has just changed:)

Ray Rolfe on June 13, 2013

Ah ha! That explains it. I was just fishing over there last week. Amery is changing! I dig the new paint on Classic Theater.

joyfotos on June 22, 2013

That it is. I will have to pay more attention to the theater the next time I am in town. We have a family member on hospice & I am missing a lot in the world at the moment.
