You can SUP on most of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes. The trick is picking the one with the biggest fish. Try central Minnesota’s Spider Lake. Rent a board with a rod holder from MN Surf Co ($65/person; mnsurf.com) and paddle three quarters of a mile to the lake’s sheltered south shore. Most boats overlook its narrow entrance. But from a board you can fish the cove’s pine-lined shallows for eight-pound bass, northern pike, and walleye. Bring your own rod.
