Getting Ready For Winter
BORDER VIEW LODGE
LAKE OF THE WOODS ORIGINAL WEEKLY FISHING REPORT November 30, 2020
Progress on the ice is moving forward. There is ice on the lake and bay, as of yesterday there is also open water on the lake. Yesterday we had high North winds and for the overnight we had zero degrees and single digit weather. If the single digit weather continues this week for overnights, we could be on the lake soon. The wind may switch to the South and current forecast shows teens for lows this week. Having the open water seal up is a big factor in safety. We do not intend to go out when there is the possibility of becoming stranded across 100 or more feet of open water. We will keep monitoring the situation while working on our projects.
Covid update; We intend to be operating at full speed this winter and have been planning as many disinfecting processes as possible to avoid major impacts to our normal service. While on light ice we will be transporting everyone as normal, except we will not be mixing groups in the transportation. Meals will be To Go for the winter season. We will also be using paper and plastic products for plates and utensils in the cabins, normal pots and pans will be in cabin for cooking and serving. We are constantly reviewing our process and policies to ensure we are acting safely for all involved. We will be disinfecting and sanitize transportation, fish houses and bathrooms on the ice.
