Heading up to Arnesen's for the first time this weekend and could use some tips from anyone familiar with that part of lake. Any particular presentations, colors or depth recommendations?

Thanks!

Just ask the guys when you get up there.

I have fished out of there for 4 years and they take really good care of you.

You will really like it.

When i was up there and it was slow we had our best luck on the bobber with a glow red anything lite. When the bite is good you will get them jiggin with what ever you put down. Everyone sayes use gold, but I found buck shots and dojiggers work fine in any color.

I had a real hot bite there last Thursday using a dropper rig with a small gold attractor spoon with an 8 inch leader and a #6 Kahle hook. The eye's showed a definite preference for fathead's. A small gold holographic Buckshot Rattle Spoon was also a hot bait. Good luck! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Keep watching here. 2 weeks is along ways off and fishing can change in a matter of hours.

Arnesen's if a first class operation. They are the only resort I even use anymore up there and it is just once a year. The rest of the time I do things on my own. As far as tackle keep it simple glow spoons and spoons with gold are typically good bets. Plain hook on a dead stick is typically very effective as well. My favorite jigging spoons are JB rattlen varmit in a glow red this has been my best jig this year up there. Then have some angel eye jr glow red, pink and white are my favs here. I also really like JR crusher spoons as they are glow paint on a gold spoon best of both worlds.

Just thought I'd check out the FM fishing info. My wife LouAnn and I have benn going out of Arnesens since a big day was 20 people 1 Track van(dodge 1/2 ton) and Eddie would make Bologna sandwiches for us to eat out of the bait house. It is now where the Rocky Point Lodge sits. Boy how time passes. This will be our 23rd year in 3 weeks. And I will tell you they have treated us Fantastic everyyear the same. We now Take our 10 year old Daughter for her now 5th year. as well as my Father in Law. This Trip is by far the best every year trip we take. And we do also go to Hawaii,Florida and a Few other places. But this is by far the best there is. If you see us up there from the 20th to 26th feel free to say Hi!. Just ask for Rick,LouAnn and Emily. We have nothing but Great things to say about all the Arnesens and also to the Lake of the Woods most Prestegios Guides on the Lake... Wingnut, The General(danny),Augs the ex state patrol with a Heart of Gold and to all the many rest of Mechanics, Cooks Bartender Staff Front Desk Etc. Etc.Etc. In other words we can't wait to get up there soon. Oh! did I forget to mention the Excellent fishing you can do there. JUST AWSOME>>>> Well I must go and get the Rods ready for the fun to begin. You will not go wrong going here to fish or just plain take some time off to enjoy Life in this family run Resort.. aka. rickkywalleye or other well known as the Great Big Northern and Walleye Hunter....See you on the water Later..

Ditto those statements. Haven't been going there nearly as long, only 5 years, but 1st class outfit. And friendly. Will be heading that way on the 18th. Look forward to reading any reports before we leave. They can't control whether the fish will bite. . . but they sure try to!! grin.gif

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
