LOVE TO FISH? Did you know Crooked Lake is stocked with Walleyes? Creeled Walleyes in Crooked Lake average in the 16-inch range. Walleye fishing starts to pick up around Mid-September and runs right on through the fall, through November and into Thanksgiving for the die-hard guys! A lot of the best action takes place in the evening and after dark. Crooked Lake is one of only three lakes in Indiana stocked with up advanced fingerlings, sit to 8 inches long. Our son has caught numerous bluegill and bass over the years from our pier.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Wayne is a graduate of Tri-State University and lived on Crooked Lake his senior year. Our son is now a student at Trine University (Formally Tri State) We decided to purchase a home with his parents and brothers for a family retreat. Memories for each family are unique and are best made with loved ones. They are often made through summer vacations and traditions of going to the same location at the same time of year. It was our desire to pass on this lake cottage tradition with the newest generations in our family. We have decided to share the opportunity with families like ours who will appreciate a true little slice of Heaven.

Why the Owner Chose Angola, IN, USA:
We decided to purchase this location 20 years ago for it's gradual sloping and great beach area for our young children, nieces and nephews. It proved to be a great decision and that beach area provided hours of entertainment. As they have grown they fly right by the beach to the boats and hit the water for hours of skiing, wakeboarding and tubing. Fishing has been good from Blue gill to Bass and can also be a great form of entertainment. We added a beautiful concrete patio and wood deck overlooking the lake. It had generated some of our fondest memories as we gather around the tables for great food and conversation.
