"With a boundary shared by Ontario and Minnesota, Rainy Lake covers 225,000 acres with 929 miles of shoreline. It is populated by 1,600 islands, which add another 635 miles of shoreline. This is big water, though rocky and shallow. Back in the coves and along the rocky banks, it isn't too hard to imagine a small flotilla of fur traders making their way into the interior of North America."

Read the entire story about this beautiful lake on page 24 and get a great recipe for Buttermilk Walleye Fillets in the July/August issue of Houseboat Magazine.
