A monster lives in this lake?

A monster lives here, Santa travels over during Christmas, a meteorite created a huge bay in this lake, what lake is this? Reindeer Lake!

I've been working on a custom map of Reindeer Lake in Saskatchewan Canada for Arctic Lodges. Before I paint a lake map, I do a little research to become familiar with the area. 

Boy, did I find some interesting stuff about this area. I found this to be a really cool and captivating place. First off, Arctic Lodge has been around for a long time, in fact since 1950. It has some of the top fishing in Canada and has first class accommodations. 

Reindeer Lake is located in the northeast of Saskatchewan and is a big lake, 140 miles long and 37 miles wide. The lake has over 5,000 islands of all sizes to explore. Amazingly, in Deep Bay Crater where a meteorite hit 140 million years ago, the water depth is 720 feet deep. Oh yeah, local legend has it that a monster lives in the bay and pulls animals through the ice during winter. No ice fishing for me! Did you know that NORAD use to track Santa's trip across North America and Reindeer Lake was a featured location on Christmas Night as Santa flew over.

What makes Arctic Lodge and Reindeer Lake so special? There are so many reasons, trophy sized fish, natural beauty, great accommodations, remote location, deep bay crater, monster legend and so much more. Learn more information here arcticlodges.com.  

Hey, my maps make a great Christmas gifts for the fisherman, lake lover, or Lake house owner.

Beautiful Center Hill Lake

I have fished this lake many times and was lucky enough to do a really big map of this Lake. I just completed this 43" x 86" canvas wrapped map of Center Hill Lake. This Tennessee lake is a beautiful clear water lake nestled in the hills of Middle Tennessee. I love to take photos of my large maps because I can get down on the map and create some fascinating photos. I took a few photos of the map to give the impression that you are actually flying over. I think they are kind of neat and unique photos. 







These maps make great gifts for the lake house owner, lake lover, or fisherman. I have over two hundred on my website, LEOLAKES.com that can be purchased from the site, or I can do custom and personalizes lake, river or bay maps, too. Folks are discovering that these decor maps are wonderfully unique gifts that become family heirlooms. Oh yeah, I hid things in the lakes waters, which make the maps even more interesting.

Does Santa fish on Reindeer Lake?


YES, SANTA'S LAKE HOUSE is on Reindeer Lake! It's a little too soon for Christmas ads, but I've been painting a new Christmas Ad for my website LeoLakes.com to use during the holiday season. The idea is based on Santa having a lake house. Obviously, Santa stays at his lake house for relaxation during his off times and does a little fishing.
To add a little more creativity to the idea, I named a few of the surroundings on the map. Of course, it's in the vintage style, such as my maps, and a feeling of the 1930s cola ads. Let me know what you think!

Oh yeah, check-out my vintage style maps for the lake houseIf you have a special Lake, River or Bay, then paddle over to my website at LeoLakes.com
