Ice Condition Update

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

Had a chance to get out ice fishing for the first time over the weekend.  Thunder Lake had around 6-7 inches of ice in most spots, while a couple other smaller lakes had the same.  Caught some crappies and northerns on Saturday with a friend.  With this cold spell, it won’t be long before the ice is 12″ thick with people towing out their permanent ice houses for the winter.  In fact, on some smaller lakes in the area, there are already some smaller permanent houses being put out.  The ice-making process is in full speed.

Today, the ice on Thunder was 8 inches thick in 30 feet of water and the first permanent ice house was seen across the bay from us.

Hope to get out fishing again this week/weekend.  We’ll keep you updated.

Winter Is Here

Friday, December 11th, 2009

This calendar year was really crazy in terms of the weather.  June was hot and muggy at times, July and August were uncharacteristically cool, September was gorgeous, October was cold and rainy, November was nice and balmy, and now December has brought the winter in a hurry.  As I am posting this, the temp outside is 6 degrees below zero.  Thunder Lake basically went from this….


to this…..


…..overnight.  Those photos were taken on back to back days earlier this week.  It’s been pretty dang cold.  With ice fishing now entering my mind, I decided to go out on the ice to see what the ice conditions were like.  In the shallow water in front of the lodge, the ice was 1″ – 1.5″ thick.  Thick enough to hold me, but not thick enough for me to want to venture out into deeper water to see the ice thickness out there.  However with this cold weather, the ice making process should be sped up dramatically.  I have heard reports of 4 inches of ice already on shallower lakes that tend to freeze a lot earlier and faster than Thunder does.

We will keep everyone updated on ice conditions throughout the winter, as well as any fishing reports we come across.  Also, you can expect to see the first snowmobile trail report sometime this month.

Remember, we have the condo units available all winter for snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiiing or for just relaxing and cozying up for the weekend next to the fireplace. We are also running a two person special throughout the winter.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

Timberwolf Sighting

Friday, September 11th, 2009

Back in early August, our guests in Cottage #7 had an extraordinarily rare encounter on their drive back from town on County Road #7, only a couple miles away from Thunder Lake Lodge.  One person in the car pointed out the gray wolf on the side of the road.  So they got as close as they thought they could get to take a picture.  After taking the first photo, they decided to try get a little closer and get an even better photo.  Amazingly, the wolf did not run as they approached closer.  Apparently, the wolf didn’t really pay much attention to them.  I still have yet to see a wolf myself, although I know there are plenty in the area as our deer hunters in November see them quite frequently.

Thanks for the photos, Dolan family!

Lyndsey A. from Cottage #7 caught the smallest fish, which was a 4  1/2″ sunfish.

Sydney from Cottage #10 caught the most fish.  She caught 7 total fish.

Congratulations to all the contestants who participated throughout the summer.  We look forward to to having all of you in next year’s contests.

Kids Fishing Contest Results (8-20-09)

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

Mother nature brought rain with her for last week’s kids fishing contest, but that didn’t stop 6 brave and persistent kids from trying their luck off the TLL docks.  Here are the results:

Isaac from Cottage #11 caught a sunfish measuring 3 3/8″.  It was the smallest of the day.

Noah from Cottage #11 caught the most fish.  He totaled 10 fish.

Caleb from Cottage #11 caught the biggest fish.  It was a 7 1/2″ perch.

It should also be noted that Santino, Michael and Jerah were all first-time anglers who did a great job catching a lot of fish between the 3 of them.

Thanks again to all the participants.
