Mercer Lake Minocqua, WI

We are located on the shores of beautiful, pristine Mercer Lake, a 257 acre spring fed, Class "A" Musky and Walleye lake with no public boat landing - perhaps the finest musky fishing waters in all of Wisconsin. Also very plentiful are walleye, smallmouth bass, crappie and panfish.

You can leisurely explore our miles of scenic shoreline and two uninhabited islands in your boat, in one of ours, by kayak or canoe, with minimal boat traffic.

Remember your camera and binoculars, the abundant wildlife is truly a memory you will never forget! You will see American Bald Eagle, Loon, Duck, Blue Heron, Otter, Beaver, Mink, Raccoon, and White-tailed Deer.
