Sun is Shining, and the Fish are biting!

All is well up here in the Northwoods! We have finally reached high 80s this week, and the sun is going to continue to shine. A couple of pictures to show you how beautiful it really is!

Toes in the Lake!
While everyone continues to head out into the woods so should you! There is nothing more relaxing then being in the woods in the fall. This is a quieter time so you will not see campsites and portages so crowded. The leaves will be changing colors and you can listen to the water rolling on shore. Nothing beats that kind of serenity. You might even see a bull moose with it's full fledged antlers. We are outfitting through the month of September so call us or visit our website to book your reservation.

And while you are enjoying the sights and sounds cast in a line! Fish are biting and will continue to! A cabin customer today caught a 30" walleye on Seagull that sounds like a great dinner! For the fall you are going to want those minnows to put on your hook to catch those tasty fish.
Come have a great end to your Summer and an even better start to your Fall with us! Hope to see you soon!

Where Did Summer Go?!

Whoa! Is it just me, or is summer flying by?! I guess the saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun," and boy has it been a fun summer. This season has been full of adventure for all who have traveled up the Gunflint. From hiking new territory in the BWCA to catching a fresh walleye dinner…we have all had our favorite moments. Now we are in the midst of peak season. It’s a lot of work, but lots of fun! People like to come this time of the year because the bugs start to die down and the waters are warmed up for swimming. We can't blame them - it is a beautiful time to enjoy the BWCA.
Well I think it’s about time we talk fishing! Trips to the Quetico have ended with great Walleye catches. From Saganagons up into Kawnipi (fisherman's heaven) you are bound to get some big ones in about 20 to 25 feet of water, and you can even catch them as deep as 30 feet. Down in Seagull we've seen a mix of everything. Some good sized Walleye, Northern, lots of Smallies and even some of those HUGE Lake Trout! Take a look at this Trout caught right out on Seagull early this morning by Deb’s niece Ella....she proved to be a real fisherman :)
There is not much that can compare to catching your own fish, filleting it and enjoying every bite, but exploring some of the BWCA's breathtaking scenery comes pretty close. Take a look at this picture taken on the Stairway portage between Duncan and Rose Lake…it seems surreal 
That’s all for now, but just a reminder that we are still taking reservations for the 2013 season and are happy to help you plan an unforgettable BWCA experience :)
