Cascade, WI
Water Type: Fresh
Entry Type: Shore
Dove off the south shore beach in the State of Wisconsin Long Lake Recreation Area. After 6 PM there is a no wake rule, which greatly reduces the number of boats on the lake. Still, make sure to use a dive flag/float. We went out past the beach bouys, through a short weed bed, and then turned south following the weed edge/drop off until we hit 2000 psi; then turned the dive back. Saw a northern, largemouth bass, minnows and panfish. Visibility was really good once past the beach area. 15 to 20 feet. Bring a wagon or a dolly to haul your gear, the parking lot is quite a ways from the beach, but it’s a smooth paved path.
