Art Lyons hold the record for the largest Muskie caught in Minnesota. Art caught it in Lake Winnibigoshish, which is located just 17 miles west of Deer River. Making Deer River Minnesota, not only a top walleye hotspot, but a trophy area for large walleye, muskie, perch and crappies.

Bowstring Lake, located only 15 miles north of Deer River, Minnesota, is not only known for another of northern Minnesota's top walleye fishing lakes, but has a great population of exceptional size crappies.
