My name is Joel “Joey” Robbins and I’ve been with the lodge since 2014, and fishing the area ever since. I first came to work at Gunflint Lodge as the kids’ fishing fun guide, and enjoy introducing kids and adults alike to fishing. I specializes in lake trout but am well versed in all species in the area.
I’m from Hutchinson, MN where I grew up chasing walleyes and panfish, but got onto stocked stream trout lakes every chance I could.
After moving here I was excited to fine tune my presentations and methods for all species of fish. My willingness to go off the beaten path in search of spots that get very little pressure, and my understanding of the lakes & species I’m chasing have been key in my 3 years of winter ice guiding. Efficient, dedicated, and patient are words that can be used to describe my ethics of fishing.
