Lake Information

6612 acre Lake Pokegama is a part of the Mississippi River flowage. It is connected to the Mississippi through two smaller lakes, Little and Big Jay Gould. Pokegama is a challenging lake to learn with it's dramatic contours and structure variations. With a maximum depth of 112 feet, Pokegama provides a wide variety of habitats. From peaceful coves to mid lake islands, sandy and rocky bars, emergent and submerging weed lines, and mid lake humps and shallow flats.  If you are looking for that wall hanger walleye, scrappy smallmouth or chunky largemouth, toothy northern, or slab crappie. For you muskie anglers, Pokegama has had an ongoing muskie stocking program. Lake Pokegama will not disappoint. We are starting to catch more and larger muskies each year and if you enjoy fishing for lake trout, we can get you in the right area. Check out our Wall of Fame and you will see why our guests return to Southwood Resort year after year.

Here at Southwood we have a very good feel for the lake and where to put you on any given species you are looking for. There are lake maps in each cabin that will give you an idea of where to find all varieties of fish. Larry's magical fishing map is also available for those hard days of finding the fish.? PRICELESS!!!  But if you are new to fishing northern Minnesota style, or you want to enjoy some wild, non-stop action, you have the option of hiring any one of the finest guides in the northland.
