The wife and I stayed there last year the first week of June. Nice place, but the owners wife was left to run the whole place I thiink for the summer due to her husband was gone going to some Ministry camp. She was left to run the whole place by herself. I kind of got the hint that the owners now are into religion big time, (nothing against that) but do seem to push that fact in thier seasonal letters and such along with no more serving of alcoholic beverages in the lodge at all. Some good points though, nice cabins, great dock-boys for your boat and bait needs, they even will clean your fish for you if you so desire (I clean my own fish), great beach area and lots to do for the kids and all. The fishing for walleye was great that week, the wife and I boated nearly 60-walleyes in the 5-days we got out and some nice bass too, however we most likely will not return to the resort due to I thought that since they are farily new restort owners, I thought it was pretty selfish for the husband to leave for the whole summer and to leave the wife to fend for herself with the resort, which she did a great job at while we were there. Their x-mas news letter we got for the 2007-year sort of stated that lots of their 2006-year guests felt the same way we did and that the 2007-resort year will focus more so on the GUEST'S themselvs and their needs. I don't mind what ever religion a person beleives in but just don't push down my throat in your news letters and such and while I'm a guest there. They need to focus on one thing and that's the resort and the guests. Sand lake is a great walleye lake, maybe find another resort on the lake, is my opinion.

I guarentee our focus is on our guests, that is why we return so many guests/friends year after year. I see you are from Big Lake.

"lakewood", thanks for the post. We checked out your website this past w-end and your resort looks great along with other fm-ers from the past saying good things about your resort. We booked the first week of June this year up at Arcadia Lodge on Big Turtle Lake to try this year but we will be keeping your lodge in mind for next year. Thanks!!!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
