South Lake


South Lake is a long, slender lake of 13 miles, with three distinct bays towards the north. Year after year South almost always produces the largest walleye of Big Hook’s season. This narrow body of water allows fisherman to avoid the wind and focus on the task at hand…fishing, of course. Several weed beds near the camp offer good northern fishing. Anglers will also find amazing walleye fishing within sight of camp. Windy points and shorelines are great places to catch your limit of walleye in minutes. South Lake is a walleye fisherman’s dream body of water, known for sprawling rock reefs and deep holes. Average depth is 32′ with areas of the lake reaching 75+’ deep. One scenic rapids spills out the north end into Nault and then Central Lake. A short walk to below the falls yields exciting walleye fishing and amazing photographs.
