The Dicks have made me think in the past to have a series, or more likely, a bookmark list of oddly named lake caches. Obviously I haven't done that yet.

I been told by a friend who grew up nearby that Jack the Horse lake was named after a horse named....(you guessed it)...Jack went through the ice and drown on the lake.

Only Minnesota could have three different lakes named "Ham Lake."

68 Bass Lakes in Minnesota, 10 in my home county of Itasca (by my amatuer researach). 0 Walleye Lakes in the state. Back in my fishing days, I pretty much gave up on asking people where they caught that big walleye, because I could usually predict the answer. "Bass Lake".

Sounds like when naming lakes there is something being covered up.

A show being produced on our other channel actually used Big Dick Lake in a segment called "Lake name or porn star" I'm sure it will win an Emmy.
