Arnesen's

13 posts in this topic

Anyone been out of Arnesen's lately that would have a report to get a guy excited for a trip 3-4 to 3-7? The father and I are heading up then, been two years since we've been up. Thanks.

I agree, Arnesens is a first class outfit. We had our first experience with them this winter, and will definitely be going back.

I just got back from two days up there at Arnesen's fishing in the FOP fishing tournament. Out of 4 classes of fish I took the winning prize for Walleye. Won a Nice portable fish house.. fishing was pretty good. they are a class act up there and you could not go wrong with them. We fished two spots out past pine and did very well in each. One spot was lots of med. fish.. they other one was less fish but bigger fish.

Ticket for the good fish is either dead sticking or tip ups for Eyes.... for some reason they are super jumpy all of a sudden. the slightest jigging will send them running... Right off the bottom.

Happy fishing.

How much do they charge to use their lake access? And can you get pretty far out from their access?

Arneson's Rocky Point does not plow a road. Richard Babbler has an access just before Arneson's. He charges $5.00 and you can get to Gull Rock. His road had been closed to any points past that for the last week now. Don't know if it's open yet or not. With the coming snow not sure what he will do....

My bad, I was up by Adrians.. oops.. I got them mixed up but both are class acts..We still have a house out on the lake by Arnesen's past Gull Rock.. wonder how we will be able to get it off the lake if we get more snow or that crack opens up more. For the most part they are all very good at what they do. It is getting to the point that if there are not roads out there, you could get stuck easy. to be on the safe side, I would try to go where there are roads now or go in a bommer.

Thanks guys. I agree Arnesen's is a class act and this will be our third year up there.

Wisker, nice to see the FOP does something like that, we don't get that with LELS; atleast that I know of. Is that an extra charge or does your dues cover most of the cost? Happy fishing and be safe.

From Rocky Point to the East:

Babblers, Long Point, Zipple Bay, Morris Point, Adrians Resort Access at Wheelers Point.

Watch the weather, they are calling for around 12" here in TRF, a little less the farther north you go, but you still have to drive through all this to get there.

Reelguy, our FOP LODGE 8 runs an outstanding get together.. We pay $60 entry fee, that includes a monster supper and a free bar until it runs out. Prizes up the wazooooo.. Very good time. The committie that puts it on deserves a real pat on the back.

Wiskers, I just talked to another lady that was there and said it was a good time. May have to see if the MPPOA would consider something like that? I would imagine it could be huge then.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
