The muskie fishing is great on Lake of the Woods and it is no different in the Sioux Narrows area. The only main difference here is that the waters are clearer, which will make catching a muskie a little more difficult. You may see plenty as they follow your lures up to the boat, but most anglers report a lot less boatside bites from muskie in clear water. Some anglers go to 100 pound fluorocarbon leaders instead of the steel leaders, which can help, although, a big muskie may still bite through 100 pound line. The anglers that tend to do better will be the ones that fish deeper and make longer casts. This area has plenty of great muskie spots with lots of deep water, islands, bays, vegetation and rocks.
