The waters near the Northwest Angle & Islands are home to a variety and volume of fish. Walleye and muskie are king here, but exceptional smallmouth bass, northern pike and crappie fishing can be found, too.
The South Shore is home to trophy walleye and northern. During the winter months, anglers can ice fish to their hearts’ content for walleye and sauger during the day or all night long in comfortable condos.
