On Saturday, August 12 the Quiet Lakes Association held its Annual Picnic at Reel Livin’ Resort on Steamboat Bay of Lost Land Lake. This annual ritual is a great venue for kicking back, eating some good food, and catching up with our lake neighbors. We had a nice crowd of 45 members who enjoyed brats and burgers cooked to perfection by QLA Vice-President Norm Bratteig, along with many delicious covered dishes brought by the creative cooks in our midst. Our new President, Dave Neuswanger, provided updates on management of aquatic plants (successful treatment of invasive milfoil in early June) and fisheries (WDNR stocking of 4-inch walleyes into Lost Land Lake in early August). The weather was perfect, so a good time was had by all. Thanks so much to Matt and Jane Pfleger of Reel Livin’ for donating all beverages and hosting the event on a busy Saturday at their resort!
