I have stayed at Sandy Point a couple of times and have really enjoyed my stay. The cabins were nice and the resturaunt and bar is great. The food is was very good. They serve breakfast luch and dinner. Gordon and his employees are a friendly group. The docking is protected but can be difficult if it is very windy. We did not catch many fish on our stays but Sandy Point did show us a map and told us where to try.

Tom Cod bay cabins have less wind in the spring but the dock is busy and fun to sit and watch if you don't mind people. Fished there for many years now. Giving up Winnie for the big "K" this year for op'ner. Bad or good I'm sure it will not be quite the hassle or expense. The lodge has great food and good dock help. Gorden and his group are great help and will help with most anybody's needs. They are a great launching point to early season fishing and this year should be interesting. Like I said before, never fished the op'ner up there but why not get away from the crowd.

We stayed in late September both times. Both times we hit fishing that was slower than usual. I customers I talked had been there in the spring time and said fishing was excellent then.

Went to Kab last August (when it was about 100 degrees outside). It was the only time we could get free. We were pre-scouting the resort for our stay in June 2004. We couldn't get into Sandy Point and ended up staying at another resort.

We spent more time at Sandy Point than the resort we were staying at!!!!!!
The food was so awsome we ate all our meals there. I committed my family to the American plan when we stay there in June. The lodge is beautiful as is the view. Gordon and the staff, as stated by others were great to deal with.

Just to emphasize the experience....
I'm closing on a lake home in Longville next week. But come June I'm still going to Sandy Point and anxious to get there. This place is a jewel and a bargain compared to many other resorts I've spent time at.

I've stayed at Sandy Point several times, but only on snowmobile trips. They are very accomodating and make you feel right at home. I have enjoyed every meal I've had there. The door is open and the coffee pot is on for the early risers. I'd rate it very good to excellent.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
