The Gunflint Trail Canoe Races were held this past Wednesday benefitting the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department.

The cream puff eating contest was just one of the many highlights of the event. We had two staffers compete in the eating contest, and both of them came home with the title! Here are a few pictures of the champs; Katelyn and Ben :)

The races were a great success benefitting a great cause! Thank you once again to the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department for all you do!

Everyone Can Paddle the Boundary Waters

If there's a will, there's a way! If you ever doubt your abilities in the Boundary Waters, just remember anyone can do it. Slow and steady wins the race. We suggested to Pedro and his two sons that they would benefit from doing a base camp on Seagull Lake instead of portaging down into Ham Lake and Cross Bay. However, they knew they were capable and were willing to give it a try. The report we heard back post trip was that they had a great time and just took the portages nice and slow. Pedro joked when he got back about what kind of bets we were making about his family in the woods. The will power of a family bonding trip could not be broken by a broken leg. So, don't ever have doubts that you can't do a trip because of unforeseen circumstances, it can be done!

More walleyes are being pulled out of Seagull. Even with the sunny skies and the warm weather walleyes can still be found. Once again a slip bobber and a leech have been the ticket. If you are going for walleyes and are catching bass, the general rule of thumb is to go 6' deeper. There have also been some nice bass coming out recently. A 20.5" was taken out on the 14th on a chartreuse jig head and a leech. Not to many reports of pike being caught. The ones that have been are usually caught while trolling with some kind of crank bait. Some really nice lakers are coming from Saganaga Lake. They have been suspended at 50'-60' in 80' of water. The lure of choice have been taildancers and silver spoons.

Customer Appreciation

Jeff from Chicago was just up here staying in our Red House Cabin for a week. He put this card together and sent it up. This is a brief glance at the great week he had in terms of fishing, wildlife, and scenery. He was able to capture some amazing moments. He has been a customer of Seagull Outfitters for over 20 years now! We appreciate his business immensely and hope to see him for another 20 years!

This cabin is available July 16-22 for $199/Night with your choice of a 16' Lund boat with 25HP motor or canoe. It is a great time to head north and fish for walleye and smallmouth bass.

We hope to hear from you in 2011!

Walleyes on Seagull

Some really nice walleyes are being pulled out of Seagull. This 27" and a 26" have come out in the last 3 days. Along with the bigger ones, some 15"-20" have also been pulled out. Of course these are the sizes people like for good eating. The classic slip bobber and a leech are still the ticket for catching walleyes. A few lake trout have been pulled out while trolling. They are getting a bit deeper so you will have to do a little work trying to find them. The bass are still hanging around and most people catch them while looking for walleyes. Pike are pretty much the same. Throw something shinny at them and you'll probably find one on the end of your line. Some really nice ones have been caught while trolling in deeper water.
