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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
