First Time on LOW

4 posts in this topic

4 of us are going up to spend 4 days at Arnesens after Christmas and was wondering a couple of things. What depth will we be fishing in and what colors-baits should we be bringing up. Our just get everything we need at the resort.

Thanks in advance.

I have a trailer up at Arnesen's so I know the area pretty well. Our best luck the past few years has come on anything pink. Obviously everyday is different, but pink has definitely been the favorite. We have used rattle jigs with success and also angel eyes among other things. Some times they like heavier stuff and other times they like the fluttery stuff. Hard to tell until you get there. This past weekend we caught most of our fish on pink buckshot rattle jigs. You can pick them up before you go but they had plenty of jigs at the resort when we left on Sunday. Just don't be afraid to hammer that jig on and off the bottom. Many times you have to bounce that jig on the bottom to get the fish's attention and then they will come and hit the set line. Othger times, they will just hit the jig. Again, take a wait and see approach. Watch the vex and be ready. Our best luck was in 24-25 feet last weekend. The first day we had 8 and the second day we were 2 short of a limit for 4 guys plus 4 slotters. We also had our share of 'pout. If you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a line robert.nathe@target.com

I have fished off of Gull Rock for a few years now right after the first of the year. We have in general had very good luck. Last year we were set up 45 steps to the west of the Rock and nailed em. Not 44 or 46 steps, had to be 45. I will be there tomorrow and Saturday, I will try and let you know how it went.

The best advice with arnesen's is to rent there houses. They have the depth and the location of the fish figured out already. They will spread there houses out so you can fish rocks or mud. They really stay on top of things out there. They will be glad to tell you how to catch fish, and even come into your house and help you figure out the bite. Great choice! Fish....

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
