A Favorite Lake

gogittumgogittum Posts: 3,939 Captain
Some places just seem to call to you.  I enjoyed Hyder, "really" enjoyed Chilko Lake and liked Horsefly Lake just fine, but the one that I really got into was Babine Lake, east of Smithers, B.C. a few miles.  It's beautiful, has history, seems unspoiled, fishing is said to be excellent, (even tho' I got skunked I did mark fish on the meter) it's wild and remote.....what more could you ask for ??  Here's Babine Lake:

    My favorite lake for about 15 years was Lake Okeechobee. Have not been back for many years. Too busy saltwater fishing and I sold my place in Moore Haven.

    Fished Lake Okeechobee previous two years in February. Had good success both years. Will be going down next month, hopefully we will have another good trip. This time of year there are prespawn, spawning and post spawn fish, so pretty consistent as far as good bite. Also crappie fishing very good in rim canal at this time
