Fishing for smallmouth bass, black crappie, white crappie, walleye, pumpkinseed sunfish, rock bass, yellow perch, muskie, northern pike and sauger at Lake of the Woods in Minnesota.

A walleye fishing mecca, Lake of the Woods is the place to catch both quantity and quality year round. In addition to excellent walleye fishing, the lake also has good populations of bass, crappie, sunfish, perch, muskie and pike. Ice fishing in winter can deliver nice stringers from this 950,000-acre lake on the northern border of the state. During the warm seasons, fishing enthusiasts are treated to about 65,000 miles of shoreline to explore. Fishing from the bank is often very productive, but boats allow anglers to reach considerably more water and find schools of fish. A couple marinas, several boat launch ramps, plenty of camping, lodging and shopping are all convenient to the lake. Lake Of The Woods is partially in Minnesota, and the balance is in Canada. There is plenty of water to fish within Minnesota, where all you are required to have is a MN fishing license. However, if you intend to fish Canada portion, you’ll need a Manitoba and/or Ontario license. Local fishing guides offer a variety of boating and ice fishing packages throughout the year.
