We believe that Pelican Lake is a great lake for fishing. And we think that of all the resorts in Orr Minnesota, Birch Forest is the best place to stay. So naturally we think Birch Forest Lodge is a great option for fishermen. And to make things a little more exciting for fishermen we are announcing a new fishing contest for 2016! This year we will be giving out $500 in gift certificates to winners of a new fishing contest. Since we live on a lake with size limits for Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass we can’t do a contest that requires us to verify the size of a fish. So instead we decided to do a photo contest. Here is how this will work…

Huge Fish

Any fish, any size is eligible for this contest. To enter you need to send us a picture of you and the fish you caught on Pelican Lake in 2016. Please send photos to info@birchforestlodge.com. We will put that picture on our facebook page and send you a link to the image. Then we encourage you to ask your friends and family to go on the page and “like” the photo. The photo with the most likes by December 31, 2016 will win a $300 gift certificate good at Birch Forest Lodge! Second place will win a $150 gift certificate*. Then we will randomly draw a winner from all those who enter and that person will win a $50 gift certificate. The gift certificates can be used for lodging, boat rental or retail. What do you think will win? A big fish? Cute kid with a bluegill on the dock? Looking forward to finding out in December!
