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.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
