Sand point Lake(pics)

10 posts in this topic

I had the good fortune to get up to the Voyageur's park with my canoe and "solo" a few days by myself(joined later in the week with some friends) and camp out and hook a few walleyes(enough for a few of shore lunches)....Sunday and monday of this past week were sunny and just plain great!....I just back a couple of hours ago and the weather sure took a turn for the worst!...Here's a few images from my camp site on Brown's Bay (off of grassy bay) on Sand Point Lake(Voyageur's Park)...sure looks like an old Hamm's Beer commercial! grin....beautiful country!...

I like that third picture a lot. Great colors in the sky on that one.

I gotta get back up there some day. Last time I was probably only 13 or 14.

Very nice ahots, I also like the border that shades it and makes it stand out from the page.

Thanks Guys!....I really enjoyed my trip up there!....actually ,I've been going to Grassy Bay since 71' and like the area better now then back then! grin....weather certainly wasn't the best this year(spent 5 days on those rocks)....also went into David Lake on the Canadian side targeting laketrout but was tough with the winds and driving rains for a couple days...not even a hit cry...2 days nice,3 days gray and rainy!...the "bugs" were starting up (gnats/flys) and liked to crawl around your eyes and in under your hat taking chunks of skin with each bite and itch like crazy!...that's june in the north country grin....

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
