    As a 12 year old, I went to this Wi We Ta resort in 1968 with my dad and his business associate – another father and son. It was our last Minnesota fishing trip, as he died of a heart attack the following January. I would like to obtain a map of the area, as I still remember catching the largest walleye of my life – 6 # 3 oz at another area lake. Don’t know it’s name, but remember we had to use some sort of jeep to follow a logging path to the lake. It seems it may have been in a state forest. No buildings were on it and no other boats. Who ever took us there, left a boat on the shore. We may have hauled a motor.
    Would love to take my grandsons to this lake if I could possibly figure out where it is. Can anyone help?
