I have a 65th Birthday bash for a guy who let's me hunt his land in the fall. It is real close to Lake Benton and we are going to fish it on Friday night and Saturday.

Does anybody have any info on the lake? I am having a tough time finding any reports.


Thanks in Advance,

"Lake Benton covers 2857 acres and is the second largest lake in Southwest Minnesota. The lake has a shoreline of 18.1 miles and a maximum depth of nine feet. The surrounding watershed is dominated by agricultural lands and the immediate shoreline is fringed with hardwoods. Lake Benton is managed primarily for walleyes also and a secondary population of northern pike and black crappie. Walleye numbers are considered high compared to similar lakes of the area. Walleye range in length from 9 to almost 28 inches, with an average of approximately 17 inches. The population is comprised mainly of larger fish, with many reaching preferred length of greater than 20 inches. Public access and boat ramps are located around the lake. Camping is also available around the lake in the county park area."

Just some info I dug up. I did find a short report that said the walleyes could be caught, but you have to work for them. Hope this helps...
