Lodging with Budd's Gunisao Lake Lodge

The lodge consists of Budd's main lodge and cabins. The main lodge holds the dining room with professional grade meals, tackle shop, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, a licensed bar, and a million dollar view.

The cabins have daily maid service and each morning guests are treated to fresh coffee with a knock on their door. There is a laundry service also available. Expect modern features such as full-size beds, linens, fresh towels, and hot showers. Electricity is available 24-7 and guests can relax around their wood-burning stove or under one of the ceiling fans that help keep you comfortable in summer. The cabins can hold upwards of 33 guests per weekend making this a perfect place for couples, families, groups, business getaways, and groups of fishing buddies.

Fishing with Budd's Gunisao Lake Lodge

The hot times of the year for Walleye fishing are Mid-may through mid-June and again from Mid-June through mid-August. These times present two very different events. One is post spawning and the introduction of warmer weather and water to the lake, and the second is the summer feeding that fattens up these fish for the long cold winter.

Expect to target big Northern Pike and by big we mean 36-47 inches with common pike in the 30-40 inch range. These are best found in the weed beds along the shore and a little deeper as the summer heat warms the lake. July is the best month for Northern Pike fishing though you catch big Pike all summer long here.

The guides here make the difference for Trophy fishing. The guides help you find the best fish because they understand the lake and the migration patterns of the fish. Guests fish two to a boat in 18 foot Alaskan Lund boats with flat bottoms and pedestal seats.

Big Trophy fishing is what awaits you at Budd's Gunisao Lake Lodge.
