Why You'll Love It

We extend a warm Canadian welcome to you from beautiful Whitefish Bay on Lake of the Woods. Our Business is Your Fishing Pleasure! Crawford's has been a family run business since 1978. Karly and Matt welcome you! "Each year we enjoy seeing our guests return. We do our best to make your trip memorable and your sporting success!"

Located on the east-central side of Lake of the Woods, in Whitefish Bay, Crawford's is near the clearest and deepest part of the lake. There's a 220' hole right around the point! Here you'll enjoy access to all the game fish available in the area including walleye, lake trout, muskie, northern, large & smallmouth bass, crappie, perch, whitefish, sauger, lingcod and numerous other species of rough fish.

We take pride in our return business and we look forward each year to see our returning guests. We do our best to make your trip an enjoyable one, as happiness is contagious, and everybody likes to be Happy!

Key Features

  • Cabin Rentals (Housekeeping): Our cabins are all fully modern with kitchens equipped with electric or propane stoves with ovens, dishes, coffee makers, toasters, eating and cooking utensils.
  • Walleye: Lake of the Woods provides some of the best walleye fishing in all of Canada. Crawfords Camp will make sure of the bait and where to find them.
  • Northern Pike: Northern pike are voracious predators and feeders. Some call the northern the 'ultimate predator'. With a body designed for speed.
  • Muskie: The first thing that muskie anglers need to know if they come to Lake of the Woods is an understanding of the seasonal movements of the fish.
  • Lake Trout: Towards the end of April, we generally have “ice out” and it’s time for some shallow water lake trout fishing.
  • Smallmouth Bass: Lake of The Woods is famous for smallmouth bass fishing. Smallmouth bass are common in the 1 to 4-pound range
  • Largemouth Bass: Largemouth bass are not as plentiful as smallmouth but the largemouth can get big with the odd 8-pounder being caught.
  • Crappie: Lake of the Woods is one of the biggest freshwater lakes in the world. Here you will find an abundance of fish including crappie.
  • Perch: Fall fishing for perch resembles spring fishing. They move just off their spring shallow spots to bays and inlets.
  • Black Bear: The fall bear season opens on August 15 and by this time we have been feeding the bears for a few weeks.
  • Deer: We can provide you with some expertly guided deer hunts out on the islands that can get you an excellent hunting experience.
  • Wolf: For those that are interested in timberwolf hunts, the season is from September 15th to April 1st of the following year.
  • Grouse: During the day time, you can find some great grouse hunting on many of the old logging roads in the area.
  • Duck: We have a large flyway that runs through Lake of the Woods and allows for great evening and morning duck shoots.
  • Geese: We have a large flyway that runs through Lake of the Woods and allows for great evening and morning goose shoots.
