Big Bass and Lots of Them!

 It's all about the bass, all about the bass.


Sunset Country has many lakes that have both largemouth and smallmouth living in them. The largemouth are found more often in the southern half of Sunset Country in lakes like Rainy Lake, Rowan Lake, Clearwater/Pipestone Chain, Lake of the Woods.

Pound for pound, bass are the feisty fish to catch around here.

Take a look at the following photos for just a small sample of the bass that were caught and released in Northwest Ontario in 2014.
