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!

You will love Arnesen's. I have been going up since 1994 and own a place in the south lot. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. robert.nathe at target

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...

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
