Arnesen's in winter?

3 posts in this topic

How is the fishing at Arnesen's on the ice? I am planning a trip for about 6 guys for early January. I have been to the Wheeler's Point area in the winter. Is the fishing better, worse, or about the same as Wheeler's Pt this time of year. The accommodations and price look good at Arnesens. I know last winter was strange so throw out last year and compare the two (wheelers and arnesens)on an average year if you could. Any help is much appreciated.

I have been going up to Arnesen's since 1994. If you want to book for January, you should do it now because they fill up really fast. That said, last year was crap, but every other year has been excellent. There have been countless days where we have caught 100 fish in a house and other days where it was slower. That's why they call it fishing, not catching, right? Even this past April, last ice was awesome. Between 2 of us on April 8th, we had our limits of walleyes between 9 and noon. Along with the walleyes, we had 14 perch in the bucket too. All in all, the people are great, the food is excellent, and most people that go there once, usually book again. If you have any additional questions, feel free to drop me a line. bobanderikanathe at yahoo (Contact Us Please).

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
