Ice Fishing

Being a guest at Border View Lodge in the winter certainly has its perks. Nobody offers more. Our private plowed road for Border View Lodge guests is one of those perks. The road will give you the opportunity to come and go as you please to one of our fish houses throughout the day. We will continue to provide our full service packages which we are known for, with bomber transportation in our rigs that are unique to Lake of the Woods. The option is yours to choose at the same great prices.

The typical ice fishing season runs from early December through late March. Our day houses are available for use from shortly after sun up until shortly before dark. The water in Lake of the Woods is stained, which provides the best opportunity for success while fishing during daylight hours. Throughout the winter, we’re constantly moving our fish houses. Guests can expect to fish anywhere from a couple miles to 25 miles out on Lake of the Woods. Our guides are on the ice every day, enabling us to follow the big schools of Walleye to keep guests on fish!

Border View Lodge also offers spacious sleeper houses with an open floor plan to give our guests plenty of space to fish comfortably. Our sleepers are readily accessible on our plowed road, giving you the opportunity to come and go as you please.

Lake of the Woods offers some phenomenal Northern Pike fishing as well. The best trophy Pike fishing is in late February and March. The reason being; the big females are feeding heavily and concentrated in shallow water as they get ready to spawn. We provide fish houses in prime Pike locations to stay warm while watching your flags. All tip-ups can be supplied at no additional charge.

Border View Lodge even offers pleasant heated porta-potties on the ice. Ladies, especially, appreciate that luxury!

If you’re planning a winter fishing getaway, look no further. Border View Lodge offers you the opportunity to have the best ice fishing experience Minnesota’s Walleye Capital of the World has to offer.
