South Lake

"I have been Walleye fishing for 32 years and I would have to say that South Lake is the most consistent producer for size and numbers of any lake I have fished. That is why I keep going back to South Lake year after year."

South Lake is a long slender lake of 13 miles, and almost always produces the largest walleye of Big Hook's season, year after year. 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 Central Lake. A short walk to below the falls yields exciting walleye fishing and amazing photographs.
