Lake of the Woods Reviews
Have fished this lake several times in 2012 for Musky. Average fishing time is 4 hours and I usually fish until dark. Saw two large fish on North side of the lake this summer, unfortunately they also saw me. Saw a 24-30 incher caught opening day of trout season on the large point, west side of the pavilion area, it had hit a hooked trout and consequently flipped off as the young girl pulled it up on the bank.
