Spring fishing is in high gear, with the walleye, lake trout, smallmouth bass and northern seasons open. The first day of the season featured a 30 1/2 inch walleye weighing in at 12# (caught and released). The lake trout are in shallow water and fairly easy to catch by trolling along the rocky shores of the lake. The smallmouth bass are still a few weeks away from their spring spawning, but the big ones are waiting for you when you cast around the tailings of some of the rapids.

Remember, our staff will fillet all your fish for you, and if you wish, our kitchen will prepare them for your dinner.

We have several nice fishing packages coming up in the next few weeks if you have the itch to get away for a few days.

The migrating birds are coming through and they seem to be emptying the feeders on a daily basis. Several pairs of loons are nesting on the lake again this year and our resident bald eagles have returned.

Our nearby Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center will be opening on May 22. They have fascinating exhibits, videos, and hiking trails. It is a WOW of a museum and definately worth a visit.

Thank you for making my dads 90th birthday absolutly fantastic! The staff helped make everything happen effortlessly with a personal touch. My dad is still raving about the hospitality at Gunflint Lodge--from our lake home and cabin to the grounds to the food, you created a perfect and memorable 90th birthday for my dad and our family. Thanks again. We look forward to seeing you soon. Feb 2014 The Swanson family

Sue and I invite you to relax in one of our lakeside fireplace cabins, feast in our dining rooms, and play in our outdoors. A vacation to the Gunflint highlands of northern Minnesota is unique. The area is remote and pristine, where we have more wildlife (deer, moose, eagles, beaver, etc.) than people. Our northwoods, just 6 hours north of the Twin Cities, continues to exist in a time of urban sprawl and expanding suburbs. Words alone cannot do it justice and the only way to understand the Gunflint area is by experiencing it first hand. Here at Gunflint moose encounters and deer sightings are more common than a visit by your neighbors. It would be our pleasure to welcome you and your family to our resort, which we hope will become your new "home in the woods".

Bruce and Sue Kerfoot, your hosts
