Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness-Basswood Lake Professional Review and Guide

"A trip to Basswood Lake doesn't require much portaging but puts the paddler into some of the best fishing in Minnesota.

With hundreds of lakes and few serious anglers at work, the Boundary Waters offers remarkable fishing for northern pike, walleyes, lake trout, and smallmouth bass. Some anglers will want to take plenty of tackle, including depth-finders and fishing boats with outboard motors. As a result, they’ll stick to the larger lakes were motors are allowed. Other anglers will be satisfied to fish from a canoe, using a minimum of gear. They are free to paddle and portage to remote lakes that are fished only lightly."
