Lake Thompson 6/21

1 post in this topic

I fished out of the state park. What a circus that place was at sundown. 7 people were fishing off the 2 points beside the docks and the docks. Also sand fill up the west slip and I dont know what happened to the east slip. My trailer was at a 20* angle but I just loaded the boat and left. Fish bit well in the morning but slowed way down by 10am. Very healthy walleye population in that lake. The scuds were just covering any sticks that I snagged so maybe that explains why. I also caught a northern thats my first one from Thompson in about 5 years. I was gonna stay and fish Sunday also but with the headache the ramp was I just went home. It was so slow in the afternoon I fell asleep in the boat and couldnt figure out who was yelling at me. It was the GFP. They have a nice Warrior. It was a gorgeous day on the lake all things considered. Good luck if you go.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
