Fishing continues to be successful
LAKE OF THE WOODS ORIGINAL WEEKLY FISHING REPORT September 6, 2020
Fall is near, we are seeing the migrating birds flocking up and each day there are more pinhead sized shiner minnows behind the charter boats. Fishing continues to be successful; our Walleye Master Guides continue to cover the lake fishing many different areas. We are still drifting with spinners and anticipate that we are a few weeks away from the steady jig bite. Temperature change will certainly be a factor. Daylight hours are getting shorter and we are starting to see the trees getting ready to change.
A few helpful reminders for everyone, if you’re feeling sick please do not come. In Minnesota wearing a mask while you are indoors is required. This includes check in and check out, buying items in the store, on your way to and from dining tables, bathroom or the bar. If you have been around others who are sick, please quarantine or get tested before going out. We have had a great season with wonderful memories being made. Don’t let the end of summer coming near give you a false sense of urgency or place a demand on you to come when you shouldn’t. Also, prepare yourself for things taking a little longer than normal. Our staff is doing its best, but things take longer with extra cleaning and social distancing. Dinner reservations are more spread out and even though we have more tables we are not able to use them all. Many have tried to point at the empty tables and say hey, what about that one, but it doesn’t work that way anymore. Also, you need to plan on doing your part by waiting for the fish cleaning house to empty before entering. Plan that you may not be able to just jump right in and start cleaning your catch. This is especially true when all of the guides are cleaning fish, typically 5-6 PM every day.
Cooling down some more this week! We have 30’s for lows and 50’s for highs forecasted this week. Some of the days are warmer, today is the only one to possibly hit the 70’s.
