Arnesen's area reports?

9 posts in this topic

Anybody been out of Arnesen's lately? People still fishing by Twin Islands? Anybody been out on the reefs yet? Coming up Wednesday night and am looking for a place to start on Thursday morning. Thanks

Does anyone have information available from the Arnesen's area? Some of my friends fished out of the Lighthouse Gap last week, along with a lot of others and had great fishing. They were in 31 feet jigging minnows and leeches. Has anyone been pulling spinners or has jigging in deep water been the trend? Going up at the end of June and wondering if Arnesen's will be turned on by then.

Dad and I went out of there yesterday in the typhoon and it was one of the tougher days I have had up there in quite sometime. Ended up on the west end out of the winds and scratched out a few smaller ones. Hopefully that is out of my system for the rest of the summer.

Hey Bucks, You didn't get it. Bapper is a close neighbor at Rocky Point, and I Was trying to get a dialog going with him to let him know that I would be up all week next week, plus the whole week of the 4th. Stay cool guy.No one is picking on anyone here. 2

2 Pounder - wish I could join you for the 4th, but it sounds like the next time up for me is July 19-22. Fish should still be on top of the reefs when you're up so get your jigs out. Pink seemed to be the best last time out. We also did pretty good with a plain lindy rig fished vertically.

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
