Arnesens

Pumped to be heading up there Friday morning for an annual long weekend. Just curious if anyone has been up there recently to provide any feedback as to where their houses are at or what the bite has been like..... Been there several times and have read their FB posts, etc. Just looking for some "real" intel. . . .  Thanks in advance for any input!

Arnesen's are fishing the reefs from Gull Rock up to North Arnesen's and 12 mile.  Not to 16 yet.  They are using track vans to 12 and getting ready to cutover from the Geo Trackers to track van soon to the reefs.  Cleaning shack buckets have been full.  Overall a very good bite so far this year.

Good luck and safe travels.

Had a Arneson sleeper 8th - 11th. 2 Guys. Left with 8 walleye 5 Sauger. Smallest was 14". biggest 18 3/4. Released a 20.  + 3 perch. Ate 3 walleye one night also and replaced em with bigger ones next day. Lots of small walleye and sauger in between the keepers so we were pullin fish up all day.

 

Not exactly sure where it was. They don't take the sleepers out very far. Couple miles.  They just told us it was in the mud. Rare but I didn't even mark a waypoint. They offered to move us if we were not catching enough.

 

 Heard the other sleepers in the area were doing well too. Very nice shack. Great service.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
