When I was a kid, we took one vacation every year or two. Our annual vacation was to Pimushe Lake near Bemidji, Minnesota. We stayed in a log cabin (#2, right on the lake) free of air conditioning, TVs and video game systems. This was before cell phones.

My siblings and I would spend our time hiking around the grounds, playing volleyball and horseshoes on the man-made "beach" and occasionally fishing for Sunfish or Bluegills from one of the docks.

But one of the best memories I have from all of our trips to Minnesota is fishing for Walleye with my dad, grandpa and uncle at the mouth of the Mississippi River. I was too young to understand "male bonding", but this was what was actually happening. The water was cold, the older men had hip-waders on and we were all focused on catching dinner for my grandma to fry up for the entire family later that night in "the big cabin": cabin #8 at the top of the hill.

Preparing this print brought back all these great memories of family vacations on Pimushe Lake: Fishing from the dock with my sister. My dad and I fishing from the boat one morning and him accidentally hooking me in the forehead mid-cast. And especially the one night on that man-made beach playing horseshoes and seeing the Northern Lights for the first (and so far, only) time in my life.

These vintage illustrations make unique art for a vacation home, cabin, or just an apartment that you wish was closer to the lake.

These prints are created by scanning, then sharpening (and occasionally coloring!), the illustrative plates from an 1884 Fisheries manual. Authentic imperfections from scanning the 100+ year old book enhance the vintage feeling.

The print can be created in almost any size and color - the most common are available from the dropdown menu when you order. If you want a different size or color, just ask!

The print is shipped rolled up in a cardboard tube. The print does not come matted and does not come in a frame. This is just the print.
