Welcome to our Lake of the Woods South Shore Home Page

The South Shore of Lake of the Woods is open water fishing.  It is an awesome area, but the winds can definitely blow here and the waves can making fishing difficult.  You will find bigger boats in this area the norm, however, when the waters are calm, smaller boats do fine here too.  This is a very popular walleye destination.
