Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Phenomenal is the word today!

June 04, 2017 at 3:50 PM

Phenomenal is the word today!  Our guides are having the best luck anchoring and jigging anywhere from Knight Island to Garden Island and over toward Stony Point.   We are still getting lots of keepers and the numbers of slot fish that were released this week are incredible. Captain Jon’s crew had a short day today and he reports releasing over 50 fish in the 16- 17 inch range along with tons of slot fish and even a 30 inch trophy! Strong action continues throughout the day.


Anchoring and jigging is still the best angling method. Yesterday the best presentation was a frozen shiner with a leech, but today a frozen shiner did the trick by itself.  Gold and glow are still the go- to jigs.  Hammered gold and hammered silver are getting the job done too.  


Today has been a beautiful day. The forecast for the upcoming week tells us it should be sunny with highs near 80 with chances of showers and thunderstorms starting Tuesday night through Thursday and then mostly sunny and warm Friday and Saturday with showers likely on Sunday.


We have some outdoor beautification projects in the works this summer, starting with some new planter boxes for the deck.  We hope you will excuse our messes as we work to improve your experience at Border View Lodge.


We still have some great opportunities for July and August with rate specials arriving on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.
