Muskie fishing is outstanding in the northwest angle area. Many anglers believe this area offers the best muskie fishing on the Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods. You can also fish the Canadian waters from this area too. The northwest angle gives you more protection from the wind than the south shore, so you can get out and target these big fish even on windy days. Muskie in the mid to upper 40 inch range are fairly common and fish up to and above 50 inches are caught on this part of the lake every year.
