Monday, May 25th, 2020 Memorial Day! First, and foremost, we stop to give thanks to all our service men and women past and present who have given of themselves so we can live in a free country. We truly are blessed to do what we love every day. We have had a marvelous Memorial Day weekend with many returning guests as well as a few new ones. We had lots of limits of blue gills & crappies of very nice sizes. Check out the Fish Tales page for details and smiles. The only down side was we are still not allowed to have campers per the Govenor’s orders, but we are optimistic that after June 1st that will change. As COVID-19 spread slows and things open back up, we look forward to seeing you at Sunset. Call for your reservation now. Saturday, May 9th, 2020 Walleye Opener! We are Open! The Minnesota stay-at-home order is still in place. However, people are allowed to leave home for recreational purposes such as fishing. So for now, we are open for our cabin guests but no camping is allowed yet. We are also not allowed to have any campfres (to prevent “gatherings”). Today was the walleye opener. It was cold with a few flurries in the air this morning. The first fishermen made quick work and were back to the dock with the first limit of the season in under 2 hours. The water temp is sitting at 52 degrees today. We look forward to a great season and seeing everyone sooon! If you do not have your reservations yet, give us a call! Saturday, April 25th, 2020 Ice is out! The ice chose our side of the lake to land on this year. It created quite a mess with our shoreline. We are grateful for Heidi, Rick & Alex coming to help with the shoreline damage from the ice and put in the dock this weekend! Look in the Spring Fish Tales for more photos of ice out and dock progress. In other good news, it sounds like Govenor Walz and the MN Department of Health are letting resorts open as planned. We have to follow social distancing guidelines that will still be in place, and extra cleaning protocols. We look forward to seeing our guests and catching some Sunset fish! Monday, April 13th, 2020 We hope that everyone had a happy & holy Easter season! Here at Sunset - the snow is slowly melting. We even have a little open water at the edges of the lake. I am predicting an early ice out this year. We are cleaning cabins and preparing for opening. In light of the COVID-19 events, when we are allowed to open, we will be making some changes for your safety and ours. The biggest of these is with cabin bedding. We will only be providing a mattress pad and fitted sheet on each bed. You will need to bring additional bedding & pillows of your choice. Please call to reserve your favorite cabin or with any questions. We pray you are staying safe and healthy and hope to see everyone this summer! Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 We want to to express our gratitude, during this time of uncertainty to everyone who has reached out to us via telephone, email or letter to check on us and ask if the resort will be opening this year. We know, that know one knows, what will transpire with COVID-19. April 1st is our traditional start date for getting the resort prepped for the Walleye opener. We plan to do that. First and foremost - we want each of our guests to follow CDC guidance to stay healthy and safe. When you feel safe to travel, we welcome you to Sunset. In the meantime, we still have 3 feet of snow between the house and the lodge making it difficult to navigate the resort just yet. On a positive note: despite the fish refusing to follow the social distancing rules and still swimming in schools, there have been no positive tests for corona virus in fish. Wednesday, January 1st, 2020 As we pause and reflect on the year just ended, we are grateful for our family, guests and friendships, and continued good health. We want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Our wish is for peace in your heart, good health and to make time with family and doing the things that bring you happiness. Life is too short to do anything less. Tuesday, December 24th, 2019 Merry Christmas! Welcome to Winter in Minnesota! We have gotten a little snow up here in the northland, but the temperatures have been a little warmer than we are used to this time of year. I’m not complaining, but it does affect the thickness of the ice and whether or not I dare bring an ice house or drive a snowmobile out there. The same for fish houses on Winnie and other neighboring lakes. I am sure Mother Nature will catch up on her ice making after the new year. In the meantime, we are enjoying the local basketball games and wrestling matches. We have also done some day trips to some of the grandsons’ sporting activities. Tuesday, October 1st, 2019 Wow! How time flies when you are having fun! The old saying holds true. Our last guests have left, even the geese and loons have headed out for the winter. The leaves are falling faster than I can rake them. We are busy winterizing the boats and motors, pulling out the dock and prepping the cabins for winter. We would like to thank all of our guests for a successful summer season. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2020. Check back to this blog for Fishsunset updates. Sunday, September 8th, 2019 Hello everyone! The crisp morning air reminds us that there is not much time left of our summer season remaining. The cooler weather has really brought out the big northerns this last week. Check out the Fall Fish Tales page to see the latest details. Call to get your last minute fall fishing trip in before we close for the season. Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 Welcome Fall! Our leaves are starting to turn colors. The air is getting a little crisp in the morning. True signs that Fall is around the corner. Fishing has has remained good. We enjoyed having the Orgon family here for their family reunion. We thank them for coming, and leaving their camping area better than they found it. We look forward to seeing them again next year. We have been harvesting the vegetables from our gardens and getting some canning done as well as catching up on some maintenance tasks. Cabin #11 is getting a paint job. Cedar Lakes Casino in Cass Lake has opened - rumor has it that the food is good. Sunday, August 11th, 2019 This summer has flown by. It’s already time to think about fall fishing! We have enjoyed visits from all our summer visitors. We were fortunate to enjoy some family time with all three daughters. We had them here at the same time, for the first time in 5 years. We took advantage by snapping a few pictures to prove it. In other news - the new casino is now open in Cass Lake - we know many of our guests will be interested to to go check that out and try their luck on their next visit up north. We have a few openings for Labor Day Weekend. Give us a call to see if your favorite cabin is available. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Wednesday, July 24th, 2019 Hello everyone! We can not believe how fast the summer is flying by! August is just around the corner. Sally’s flowers are have been blooming all summer. I think I will still get a fair amount of vegetables despite the pesky potato bugs and deer that think I should share with them. The water has warmed to a full 80 degrees now. This means there are no leeches available for bait. We have adapted and switched to nightcrawlers and artificials. The walleyes like those too. See our Summer Fish Tales for recent pictures. Be sure to call for your Labor day weekend & fall reservations. Friday, July 5th, 2019 We have moved on from lilacs to the beautiful Minnesota state flower - the Lady Slipper! They are not as plentiful as lilacs, but a splendid flower to find. Remember, look, but do not touch. They are protected. Fishing continues to be good. We have been seeing nice fish of all species, walleyes, northern & crappies to start off the holiday weekend. Thursday, June 6th, 2019 The lilacs are blooming! That means the water is into the mid sixties and the crappies and blue gills are ready to spawn. With that, fishermen have been finding them in the usual and unusual locations and very nice sizes! Walleyes continue to bite on the leeches and we have been seeing some nice Northern Pike as well. We remind you it’s never too early to think about your July 4th holiday reservations. Or plan ahead for later in summer. Saturday, May 25th, 2019 What a difference 2 weeks can make! The water is warming quickly and we can sure tell the difference in the fish feeding habits. We are now seeing nice crappies and bass. They are waking up hungry just like the walleyes . Memorial weekend is in full swing. Fishermen young and old are showing off their skills. Check out the Fish Tales Page for the latest catches! Monday, May 13th, 2019 Boom! Just like that, walleye opener came and went. We had some hardy fishermen who took a chance on the weather and were rewarded with some nice limits. The water temps were still in the 40’s so no crappie action just yet. Check out the Fish Tales Spring 2019 to see the Opening weekend catches. Jimmy got the first limit. Josh & Marty also had very nice fish to show off for the camera. We have openings for Memorial Day weekend. Call now for your reservation. Monday, April 29th, 2019 Despite the 2” of fresh snow we got today we are still busy getting cabins ready for opening. Washing windows and walls, making beds, vacuuming and mopping. Some cabins got new curtains. Cabin 12 got a kitchen make-over with new kitchen cabinets! We look forward to seeing our customers and friends at opening. If you have an itchin’ to go fishin’ give us a call. We still have some vacancies for opening weekend. Saturday, April 27th, 2019 Ice out! The Ice went out today! See the first picture of open water on the Spring Fish Tales page. Now I can think about getting into that COLD watter to get the dock in. Monday, April 1, 2019 Kick off of Spring Cleaning! This is the day we traditionally do our spring walk through of the cabins to see what big projects need to be tackled before opening. This is easier said than done when the snow drifts are still taller than our van. We started the process a little early last week, by hiring someone with a skidsteer to come plow a path to get to some of the cabins. Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 We were right - Mother Nature was saving all her cold to deliver it in one VERY COLD week. put another log on the fire. It is supposed to warm up to above zero by this weekend. Soon we will forget this even happened and be looking forward to spring! Thursday, January 3rd, 2019 We would like to wish everyone a very happy new year! We hope everyone had a chance to enjoy some holiday family time. The weather has not been as cold as most years, and we do not have as much snow as usual. The lake is frozen, but the ice is not as thick as it normally is by this time of year. We are not fooled by Mother Nature - we know winter is not over. Saturday, October 12th, 2018 We would like to thank everyone who visited Sunset this season. We are now closed for the winter. It seems each season goes faster than the last and is over before we know it. This season was no different. We enjoyed time to visit with our many returning guests this year as well as meeting new ones. We enjoyed good fishing and beautiful sunsets. We look forward to seeing everyone next spring. Wednesday, September 5th, 2018 We enjoyed a relaxing Labor Day Weekend. Some of our long time guests were here and they were smarter than the fish. They earned blue hats to prove it. We had a couple ladies join Sally in the lodge over the weekend for a mini quilt retreat. They got many quilting and sewing projects completed. Now as we turn our minds to fall, along with fall colors comes the wild rice harvest. If you would like some shipped to you - contact us for pricing and shipping. We would like to remind you to call for your end of season fishing trips up north. Sunday, August 26th, 2018 Hello everyone! Even though the calendar still says summer --- Our trees say it is turning to fall up north. We are starting to see some fall colors already! The fish also know it is time to eat up before winter. This week we have had several Blue Hats. You can see them on the Fall Fish Tales page. We have a few openings for Labor Day weekend if you need a last minute getaway. Please call to plan your fall fishing trips. We will be closing for the season October 1st. Sunday, July 29th, 2018 Wow! I guess time flies by when you are busy having fun! The month of July flew by. The fish of all varieties have continued to cooperate. We have been seeing walleyes, bass, northerns as well as the full menu of pan fish from perch, and crappie, to rock bass and pumpkin seed sunfish. It is not to late to get in on the action and get in a last minute vacation before back to school time or before summer slips away. Call to see if your favorite cabin is available for your Sunset getaway! Sunday, June 24th,2018 We had a busy start to month of June. Plenty of people and fish to go around. Now as the month winds down we are catching up on a few chores and prepping for the big holiday week ahead. With the 4th falling midweek it becomes a week-long celebration instead of just a weekend for many people. We look forward to the celebrations! We still have some space if you are wondering where to spend your holiday - Call today! Wednesday, May 30th, 2018 We have had a busy month of May. We have been catching plenty of nice walleyes. This week the water temperature reached the mid 70’s. This influences when the panfish like blue gills and crappies start feeding. They started biting this week and they are hungry! Memorial Weekend was a busy one with a camp full of returning guests that have turned into long time friends. Everyone caught fish and Mother Nature provided beautiful weather. Check back often for updates to this blog and our Fish Tales pages to keep up on the latest happenings. It’s never too early to be planning your summer getaway to get up North to go Fish Sunset! Give us a call to see when your favorite cabin is available. Saturday, May 12th, 2018 Walleye opener did not disappoint! Check out the Fish Tales page. The fish came hungry and ready to eat! Thursday, May 10th, 2018 The countdown is on! Only 2 days to go! We are anxiously awaiting our first guests to arrive tomorrow! Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 Ice is Out! Two weeks later than normal, but at least we will be able to get in the dock and be ready to put some boats in for walleye opener next week! Tuesday, April 24, 2018 It’s official! I believe Spring might actually arrive! The weather has been beautiful this past week and the snow is finally starting to give up its grip. As you can see from the lake shot posted in FishTales - there is still plenty of snow & yes that is still ICE! In the yard, green grass is starting to sprout so we are optimistic. I had some help yesterday digging out the sidewalk to the lodge. You will notice TWO yellow labs. This season when you arrive at Sunset, Lily will introduce you to her new friend Jack. He joined the Sunset family last November. Saturday, April 14, 2018 I posted a temporary picture here in the blog - to show our current snow by the lodge. Today there were still 3 pick-ups out on the lake ice fishing. We are grateful we are not getting the 10+” of snow and blizzard that is gracing southern portions of Minnesota this weekend. We’ll take our existing snow and cold weather, while our thoughts are with all those in other parts of the country experiencing horrific tornadoes, fires and floods so early this season. We look forward to Mother nature turning on the charm soon to send away the snow and ice and bringing on more pleasantries - - -like hungry walleyes, northerns, crappies and bass! Saturday, April 7, 2018 Spring is here…at least according to the calendar. It is only FIVE weeks until the Minnesota walleye opener! Today, people are still driving on the 27” of ice on the lake chasing pan fish. We hope to have some warmer weather soon. With longer , warmer days that ice will disappear in a hurry. We know our walleye fishermen prefer boats over augers. If you remember - last year “ice out” was April 3rd. The late heavy snows have made a little more work for George. He has been busy plowing and shoveling paths to the cabins. We have started our 46th year of spring preparations. We are busy cleaning cabins, painting, replacing flooring, cabinets and other minor “fix-its”. Sally has been busy this winter making new curtains. What new changes will you find in your favorite cabin? Call soon for your Spring & Summer reservations!
