It might seem premature to start thinking about summer vacation, but now is the perfect time to plan your getaway to one of the most inclusive Minnesota family resorts! Located on beautiful Lake Winnibigoshish (Lake Winnie to the locals), the historic Northland Lodge offers a little bit of something for everyone. Boasting more than 10,000 lakes, it’s rare to find a Minnesota resort with a swimming pool, but we’ve got you covered! Families can enjoy swimming in the waters of beautiful Lake Winnie, or splashing in our heated swimming pool complete with a waterslide.
Minnesota walleye fishing opener is just a few weeks away (May 13, 2017 to be exact). Where will you be? If you’re smart like the generations of seasoned fishermen that frequent our Minnesota fishing resort, you’ll be on Lake Winnibigoshish enjoying one of Minnesota’s favorite pastimes.
If you’re really smart, you’ll be staying in one of the beautiful cabins at Northland Lodge the night before so you can beat the crowds to the early morning bite. You’ve probably heard about and seen photos of the legendary lunkers that have been pulled from Lake Winnie’s waters throughout the years. But did you know that there is a highly complex and meticulous process that is occurring right now, producing more than 10 million walleye fry each year?
Although it’s technically spring on March 20th, winter has its way of sticking around until the bitter cold end in northern Minnesota. The month of March can be a strange phenomenon around northern Minnesota fishing resorts. One year we fished on the ice in 70 degree sunshine for St. Patrick’s Day. A few years later it was 30 below that day. If you’re doing the math, that’s a 100 degrees difference!
Without further ado, here is Northland Lodge’s list of ways to breeze through the final weeks of Minnesota winter.
