It is one of the most beautiful and bountiful Lakes in Minnesota and it's also one of the largest.

There are a lot of things you may not know about "Lake of the Woods" such as it has more than 65,000 miles of shoreline and 14,000 islands.

It's a big lake with a lot of stories.

Jason Davis goes "On the Road" to Lake of the Woods to find out the facts, fish and find out more about an oddity of Minnesota geography called the Northwest Angle.
