Drop-offs, sand-bottom, rock bottom, sunken islands and reefs offer a fishing challenge. With over 40,000 acres of water, hundreds of bays and coves, and 365 islands to explore, you can have a new fishing experience every day of your visit. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources maintains the lake with a walleye hatchery and muskie stocking programs.
