Navionics Lakemap on LakeoftheWoodsMN.com
Have you ever read a fishing report and didn’t really know where an island or reef being referred to was? Did you ever wonder what type of structure around Knight and Bridges Islands made that spot so popular? We believe your questions are one step closer to being answered. Lake of the Woods Tourism has the Navionics lake map of the entire lake, both U.S. and Canadian sides on an interactive map available on our website.
This map shows depths, reefs, islands and more. You can zoom out to get the lay of the land or zoom in to look for a “spot on a spot”. This tool is one you can use at your desktop or on your mobile device anywhere you are connected to the internet to explore the many hot spots of The Walleye Capital of the World.
Do you have the mobile app on your phone? While at sportshows this spring, fishing conversations often lead to spots on the lake which often lead to me pulling out my smartphone to show spots on Lake of the Woods. The best app I have found to date is the Navionics Boating USA app for both Android and Apple. For around $15, this app is very detail oriented and can be a nice tool to learn more about navigation, fishing spots and actually works as a backup device on the water.
Below are screenshots from the Lake of the Woods Tourism website and specifically the NE corner of Big Traverse Bay around the Knight and Bridges Islands area using the Navionics Lakemap. Click Here to check out the Navionics lake map featuring Lake of the Woods.
Lakemaps are a great way to learn more about the body of water you intend to fish as well as navigation. With a lake the size of Lake of the Woods, using tools like this can add to a safer, easier and more successful experience on the water.
