Northernmost and Southernmost Points in the U.S. Team Up

Lake of the Woods MN – Lake of the Woods in Minnesota and Key West, Florida are very different, but also have a lot in common.  There is currently three feet of ice and thousands of happy ice anglers on Lake of the Woods.  The temp in Key West is in the 80’s.  What they do have in common is world class fishing and claiming the northernmost and southernmost points in the contiguous U.S. with the marker buoys to prove it!

The two destinations have teamed up for a fishing trip giveaway.  Anglers can enter to win a two-destination vacation to fish freshwater and saltwater species in the “Northernmost to Southernmost Fishing Trip Giveaway” that  spotlights recreational angling in Lake of the Woods, Minnesota, and the Florida Keys.

The giveaway launched Wednesday as part of a month long social media program showcasing the two destinations, which feature iconic “twin buoys” designating the northernmost and southernmost points in the continental United States.
