It is amazing to say, sliced ham and Miller Lite are hard to get, say it isn’t so Bob Uecker!
BORDER VIEW LODGE
LAKE OF THE WOODS ORIGINAL WEEKLY FISHING REPORT July 5, 2020
The Walleye Master Guides have been working fishing grounds on the North side of the lake. This past week has been either on the East side or West side of Garden Island. Great success continues. There were many fresh meals of Walleye and limits of take-home fish with a great number of trophy size Walleye caught and released. The restaurant has been busy and it has been difficult having some items regularly in stock. It is amazing to say, sliced ham and Miller Lite are hard to get, say it isn’t so Bob Uecker!
The anchor and jig bite has been slowing down this past week. There has been a lot of drifting with spinners and live bait. Same usual colors, hammered gold, chartreuse, glow red.
Big news this past week for the lodge, we purchased a new building! We are working on some remodeling and planning to have a new facility for sleeper house business up and running for the coming winter. We plan to add shower houses and more, so hold tight, more news will be coming. The new decks on the river cabins are complete. The landscaping and driveways are still being worked on. There is a lot of mud, we are trying to keep carpet rolls for walkways. There are boot brushes at all the cabins and on the docks. Coming soon, new floating dock with gangway. We will have an 8’ wide and 48’ long floating dock section for boarding our charters.
This week looks to be staying with the 30-degree temperature changes. Typically, it brings evening storms as the sun goes down and we cool off for the night. High’s in the upper 80’ and lows into the upper 50’s this week.
