Can't beat them. I would recommend getting up early so you can get one of the first track vans out on the ice. If you show up late, you may have to wait a little while. Not a big deal, but just an fyi. Also, if you like the house you fish in on day 1, just tell your driver you want it again and they will save it for you. Then, you can sleep in. It seems like the beer always tastes really good on that first day. Also, let the driver know if you would like to fish in a certain area - ie 12 Mile or Arnesen's reef or Gull Rock reef or Cookers or some place else. They will try to get you in your desired area. Good luck.

We have a group heading Jan 4th threw the 6th. we have been going there for about 6 years now. Great people and it sure is a fun place to fish. We have had our bad years and some Fantastic years. They have great food at the lodge and the drivers are real nice. The only bad thing I would have to say is that there never seems to be enough wait staff on during dinner time. Also if you want to eat at the lodge I recommend that you call up there now and make reservations. We always have a fish fry one night at the cabin and the next night we head up to the lodge for prime rib.

Don't forget to tip you drivers.

And above all have fun.

This is from last year up there.

This will be my 22nd year of going up to the Arnesens Rocky Point Resort. It's sure gotten Bigger and Busyier. I remember when Eddie used to make us Bologna and cheese sandwiches for the day out. And this was done out of the old bait house. My how times have changed. You will be treated very well at this resort. Kay, Eddie, Mark, Paul, Steve, and Jack and all of the arnesens will treat you right.A real first class establishment. Just go to have a fun fishing trip. They will make sure to do all they can for you to make this happen. Just ask about Rick and Louann and how we keep coming back to cath the big one. Thanks for your time and we will be up there on the 21st thru the 28th of January with our now 9 year old Daughter Big Fish Emily Eberspacher, and Father and Law John.

Totally agree. Good Chow, good people, guides were of course great too. I shouldnt say "horrible"..more like "just less than good". The past 3 years were unbeleivable, and this year will be too if the ice freezes before the wind comes..there should be an aboundance of Eyes to be had.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
