Summer, summer, summer

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Our 2 year anniversary of buying Bearskin Lodge came and went on July 20th. As usual, we were way too busy running a resort to celebrate the day.  But surprise, surprise, 2 years have gone by and Bearskin has survived us. We know of many resorts that are having a tough summer so we’re endlessly thankful for our loyal guests who return year after year after year. 

It’s been a summer of good fishing.  Of all the surprising fish this season, this fish is probably the biggest and best.  The 31 inch walleye was caught by Harley Handegard (who does take his fishing pretty seriously) in a “not-to-be-disclosed” location.

Bearskin Fishing — new guide!

Our new fishing guide, Curtis Blake.

Our new fishing guide, Curtis Blake.

Bearskin’s former fishing guide, Mark, would sometimes return from a fishing trip on East Bearskin Lake grumbling about it being like “fishing on the Dead Sea.”  This was in spite of the fact that he almost always came back with a nice stringer of fish. The lake has always had a good supply of fish, but sometimes catching those fish has taken a little extra sffort.  Plus, some years the fishing is just better than other years.

So far, this is a very good fishing year.  It’s been a cool start to the season, with many folks saying we’re 2 weeks behind the normal fishing schedule.  That just means that the easy fishing season could extend farther into the summer.

Fishing advice from YouTube

Monday, September 8th, 2008

The Mazarra family of Edina posted this short video on YouTube of their fishing success last week while staying at Bearskin Lodge.   This is not exactly the likely lure our fishing guide would have suggested for fishing on East Bearskin Lake — but obviously, this fisherman knows which tackle to use to catch the big ones!  Very nice fish.
