Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

We have had great fishing this past week

We have had great fishing this past week!  The weather cooperated nicely most of the week, Saturday started with storms and wind which changed the fishing game.  Summer is going full speed ahead, it is amazing to think we are already a week and a half into June. 


This past week has provided us with some great days of drifting with spinners and crawlers or anchoring and jigging.  We have been mostly fishing the north side of the lake although there are still plenty of fish off of Pine Island.  We are still seeing the pattern of larger fish on the north side.  The drifting with spinners is a great tactic and lots of fun.  Instead of the tiny nibbles on the line and wondering when to set the hook you get a more aggressive strike, and the fight is on.  We have been anchoring in the 25-28 foot of water and drifting from the 11-24 foot of water.


This week forecast shows some cloud cover days, we need a little rain, but do not want to say it too loud.  Temps in the 70’s during the day and 50’s overnight.


The deck project is still on going, we are trying to do it in small batches to keep the deck open.  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.
