    Custom Cabins June 2016 eNews



    Summer has finally arrived in northern Minnesota, but the beginning was cool and on some days even cold.  As a matter of fact were a few times there may even have been a few flakes of snow!



    But in spite of some generally foul weather, this fisherman didn't seem to have trouble landing some big walleyes.





    Well, the weather cleared but the temperatures were still quite nippy when this great bass was landed.



    Another great stringer of fish.  The walleye seemed to have sprung into action and our guests were taking advantage of it.





    One of our guests has a wonderful underwater camera and captured this terrific picture of a bass he had hooked.  We think the detailed colors of the fish are superb.





    Early one evening the same guest caught this picture of our central dock. The upper part of the picture shows the sun just above the horizon.  For those of you who are familiar will recognize the view of that going toward Prairie Portage, which is more or less in a northerly direction.  Yes, our sun does a very wide swing from summer to winter.





    This picture depicts the sun setting through the trees from cabin number #4.





    Because the sun is still about as far north as it can get, and because of its reflection, the water appears to resemble a red sea.



    Even though this is the June letter, we are sure people have not yet forgotten about this year's annual 4th of July picnic that we hosted at our "pool", which is more commonly referred to as Moose Lake. It was a great party with perfect weather and lots and lots of friends from here and from all over the country. Our guests arrived both by land and by sea. Many friendships have been formed from this event.

    We would like to invite you to join us for this and our other gatherings.

    We appreciate those of you who are kind enough to share your pictures with us, but we are limited to eight pictures per letter. However, we can add pictures to our Fishing page. So if you don't find your picture in our newsletter, please check our Fishing album.
