Off to the left of this photograph, you can make out the smallest island on Big Bass Lake that being Grandma’s Hat. It has also been known as Tiny Tim and even Loon Island. The picture is taken on the Waite Bridge that leads to the Big Island which is right next to the small one. The bridge was built in 1954 and is a one lane bridge set off a dirt road.
The island, as you can tell, is not very big. Yet it has its charms and was once noted as having one great sandy bottom all around the island and many boaters stopped by for a swim. It aslo once held two trees but now seems to be made up of a variety of bushes.
If anyone knows more about this island, please let us know by way of a comment, such as who might currently own it. Our thanks to Mike Elsner for taking this photograph for us.
