truly lives up its name. This 1,770-acre lake snakes its way around nearly 35 miles of fishable shoreline. It's been referred to as “little lake of the woods” because of the sparse development and the many bays, arms and islands.
As you coast along, each new water way and bay is more beautiful than the last. You can spend an entire day plunking along the shoreline, moving and exploring. Finally, when it's time to head back, you might look around and wonder, “which way”? You will eventually find your way home, but you'll want to return to the lake again soon because Big Mantrap truly is one of the state's most beautiful settings for a fishing trip.
Besides the variety of game fish in the lake, when you get around that next bend you could see an osprey swoop down for a fish or a bald eagle doing a bit of nest repair. White-tailed deer are frequently spotted standing in shallow bays drinking, along with otter, beaver and more.
