It took Steve Johnson about 20 minutes to land this monster but it made for the memory of a lifetime.
"Amazing staff and guides hit our limit every day. You won't be disappointed. Best experience we have had at the rainy river and lake of the woods."
"The most reasonable and customer service orientated place we have been at Lake of the Woods. They truly make you feel like family and go the extra mile to make your trip memorable. It is definitely an annual trip for us."
