To be fair I haven't fished a lot of these, but how can you beat Georgian bay? Multiple salmon species, lake trout, rainbow trout, steelhead, and brown trout. Then you got trophy pike, walleye, musky, and bass. Also great crappie, and perch.

I'm even missing a few there I'm sure. Plus there can be great shore fishing, even for something like salmon! Can beat that in my books

Yep, agree, but there is no such thing as a boat too big out there, days calling for low wind Iíve still been caught in 3 footers not too much for the boat but definitely a no go for safe comfortable down rigging I definitely still pick my days wisely! Still safer than trying to fish simcoe on shifting pieces of ice though at least in august you might survive in the water for a while!

Lake of the Woods

You can boat around the town of Kenora....go grocery shopping, beer store, pharmacy etc never needing to be in a car. And it has great walleye fishing.

......And also have a chance to buddy with Gord Pyzer

As far the vote goes I like to stick with smaller lakes or bays of larger lakes and it's hard to pick a favourite one .

Every year in addition to fishing the known lakes , I am discovering a few new ones for myself and this is a fun thing to do which I enjoy not less than fishing my old honey holes.

I know it is not on the list but balsam is my favourite because it has almost all my biggest fish that I have caught. Crappie 17.5 inches---2.6 pounds.....Walleye 27.1 inches---7.7 pounds..... Large mouth bass 6.2 pounds.....Small mouth bass 5.1 pounds.....Musky 53.1 inches, weight unknown. Also I see the most wildlife when I am around balsam. It is a very active area at night. One bad thing about balsam, It is the last place I lost a lure 11 years ago.
