Fishing Guides

Whether you’re looking to land a trophy walleye or feel the thrill of the fight with a smallmouth bass on the line, an experienced fishing guide can help get you started your first day on the water or help you navigate some of the finest walleye, lake trout, smallmouth bass or northern waters you have ever fished. The Minnesota state record walleye came from the Seagull River just miles from here! Skilled fishing guides are limited, so we recommend booking your guide when you make your vacation reservation to assure you of their services.

With a full day fishing guide, your guide will cook you up a traditional Minnesota shore lunch or you can choose to take a pack lunch with you from Justine’s if you don’t want to take time away from fishing for lunch. Once you land your catch, your guide will clean and fillet your fish, then the chefs at Justine’s will cook it up for you for dinner or we can freeze it for you to take home with you.

Free Fishing Fun For Kids

As a complementary activity for overnight lodge guests, our guides will take your children (5 to 12 years old) out for a two-hour fishing excursion on Gunflint Lake. We’ll gear them up with bait and tackle and take them to some of our favorite spots for a first-time fishing experience they won’t forget. If your child catches a keeper, we can even bring it back, teach your child how to clean and fillet it, and bring it back to you to have for dinner! This activity is complimentary for all our youngest Gunflint Guests, based on availability. Sign up in advance with Guest Services
