Arnesen's

10 posts in this topic

Making my first trip to LOW for ice fishing. Four of us have settled on Arnesen's as our destination for a sleeper. Any positive or poor experiences with Arnesen's?

I stayed with them this summer and have nothing but positive things to say.

We first stayed with them back in the early 90's, ice fishing in their sleepers, and they did a great job of keeping you on fish. If you weren't catching them where you where at, they'd move you to them. Also, just a hint, don't be afraid to jump in the shallower day houses either, before they get the day people out there. they were pretty decent about us fishing them early, caught alot of bigger walleyes that way!! Good Luck. The Bumble

The best way to get put on fish, or get moved to fish is to tip the guides. Works for me every time.

You don't need to tip them to get moved. I have fished with them for 11 season now and have never had to tip to get moved. If the fish aren't biting they ask if I want to move and we move. That one of the best thing about Arensen's I think they run the best operation on the lake.

I read the policy and don't see what I did wrong, but the poster asked for others' opinions so here is mine without any extra explanation. I would not recommend Arneson's to anyone. Clear enough. My e-mail is in my profile if you want details.

I appreciate the all the feedback. I'm just looking forward to being on LOW for my first time. We've been doing the Upper Red deal for the past 3 years and it's getting a little boring. Would really love to do some spring fishing on the river at LOW based on what I'm reading from other posts.

I've been coming to this forum for a year now to get some great info, just finally decided to join in. Thanks to all that provide a great break in my day from the meat-ginder of work. It allows me to day dream about the drag sounding and the anticipation of seeing that Walter come up for the first time to see how big he is. Can't wait!

Yep, this is the best place on the ice. These people actually care for their customers. A short warm and roomy ride to your heated house. Ice workers checking on you all day, to see if you need anything. Fish...

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
