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.

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
