The kids won't waste a second jumping into the car to keep moving on from one fun adventure to the next. 

"You're just like your father."

...Because you caught just as big of a fish as him while you spent your day out on the lake! Go home with a story to tell about that gigantic pike or walleye you hooked right after dad taught you the basics of being a pro angler! Lake Placid offers a variety of prime fishing locations; on Mirror Lake conveniently located near the business district or the northern end of town right on Lake Placid.
