Cruising Past The Northern Islands

Here is a lone speedboat about to pass the two northern islands on Big Bass Lake, those being Turtle and Four Winds Island.  The former is still owned by the Manistee National Forest and brings a presence of that large mass of forest land to Big Bass Lake.  The latter is now privately owned but was once a part of Camp Martin Johnson, that being Four Winds Islan.

Just to the east of these two islands is the passage between Big and Little Bass Lakes and in early August I will have a rerun of those classic posts bringing you many angles of that passage.  Also just to the east of these islands is the Sunken Island where the water is only a few feet deep and is a populr venue for pontoon boats to anchor at.  Lots of people like to swim in that area of the lake.

I would welcome any other pictures of Turtle Island which you can email to me at
