Flowers in Full Bloom Along the Trail

Flowers are starting to blossom along the portage trails and shorelines of the Boundary Waters. This past week we have seen high temps in the 80's with some high humidity.
The walleye bite has been really good. Our customers traveling into Quetico have had some great reports of large fish and large quanities. The topwater smallmouth bass bite has been excellent as well. We have had some customers catch them in the 22 to 23" class.

We still have cabins available for the 2009 season and we would love to have you come visit us. We are starting to update our website with cabin tours Please check them out!

Great Weather and Fishing Final Arrive to the BWCA

Summer has finally come to Seagull Lake. This past weekend was gorgeous with low winds, sun, and temperatures in the mid 70's. We are starting to see a lot of moose venturing out into ponds eating the vegetation and cooling off from the afternoon sun. We have a cow and two calves that have been regulars to Seagull Creek almost everyday.

The lake trout are starting to move deeper and the smallies are still in the shallows waiting to spawn. The temperature off Seagull dock was around 60 degrees earlier in the week. The walleyes are starting to pick up and some decent catches are coming in from our cabin customers, staff and outfitters.

*All fish were caught, pictured, and released.

With the great weather and fishing, comes the black flies and mosquitoes. They are relatively mild yet, but as the summer moves along they will be getting worse.

Regional Forest Service Supervisor Makes Landing at Seagull

On Thursday, June 4th, the Regional Forest Supervisor made special landing on Seagull Lake. The purpose of the trip was to check out the site and location of the new Chik-Wauk Museum. The museum will display information and pictures of the people of the Gunflint Trail. Along with the educational experience, there will be nature walks and bird watching opportunities. Chik-Wauk means "Jack of the Pines" in Ojibwe.

Above, is the picture of plane flying into the bay and landing at the Seagull Outfitters' dock.

Seagull Outfitters would love to help accommodate and arrange lake landings for our customers that are traveling from a long distance away. Please email us for more information .

The lake trout are continuing to bite good and the smallmouth reports are getting better as the water warms up.
