4 of us are going up to spend 4 days at Arnesens after Christmas and was wondering a couple of things. What depth will we be fishing in and what colors-baits should we be bringing up. Our just get everything we need at the resort.

Thanks in advance.

I have a trailer up at Arnesen's so I know the area pretty well. Our best luck the past few years has come on anything pink. Obviously everyday is different, but pink has definitely been the favorite. We have used rattle jigs with success and also angel eyes among other things. Some times they like heavier stuff and other times they like the fluttery stuff. Hard to tell until you get there. This past weekend we caught most of our fish on pink buckshot rattle jigs. You can pick them up before you go but they had plenty of jigs at the resort when we left on Sunday. Just don't be afraid to hammer that jig on and off the bottom. Many times you have to bounce that jig on the bottom to get the fish's attention and then they will come and hit the set line. Othger times, they will just hit the jig. Again, take a wait and see approach. Watch the vex and be ready. Our best luck was in 24-25 feet last weekend. The first day we had 8 and the second day we were 2 short of a limit for 4 guys plus 4 slotters. We also had our share of 'pout. If you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a line robert.nathe@target.com

I have fished off of Gull Rock for a few years now right after the first of the year. We have in general had very good luck. Last year we were set up 45 steps to the west of the Rock and nailed em. Not 44 or 46 steps, had to be 45. I will be there tomorrow and Saturday, I will try and let you know how it went.

The best advice with arnesen's is to rent there houses. They have the depth and the location of the fish figured out already. They will spread there houses out so you can fish rocks or mud. They really stay on top of things out there. They will be glad to tell you how to catch fish, and even come into your house and help you figure out the bite. Great choice! Fish....

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
