Arneson's this Weekend

Recommended Posts

noska

We had a blast up at Arneson's this weekend. We caught 13 keepers on friday, threw a lot of smaller ones back. On Saturday it slowed down a bit, we only kept 8 fish throwing back a half a dozen or so. Sunday was the best day, we only fished a half a day and bagged 12 fish throwing back a 23" walleye and a 34" pout smile We caught 20 or so fish in 4 hours.

It was our first time up at Arneson's, we have fished many of the resorts in baudette, but we felt as though Arneson's really wanted to make sure we were happy. The guides were great and the food was amazing.

No one on the big pond can guarentee you will be on fish. If they say they can they are full of sh%! I judge a place on their interest in you considering the amount of people they deal with per day, we all felt it was second to none.

Keeping 33 walleye/sauger/perch is not the best fishing we have encountered, but we ate fish every night and we all came home with a few to enjoy later.

Arneson's was a top notch place to stay.

What worked for us was a plain red hook 4 inches off the bottom with a really lively minnow. We also caught a dozen fish using the vexilar sometimes suspended off the bottom 15 ft. or more. The hot jig for us was a gold or silver lindy rattlin flyer. We caught a few on the stop-sign, but the rattlin flyer was the top jig in our tackle boxes.

Wingnut, I have a group of 12 coming up to fish fish out of your great facilities Friday and Saturday. 4 of us are coming up early Thursday to fish out of our portables for a few hours. Will we have a hard time driving out on the ice from Arneson's? Thanks for the info and we will look you up when we get there.

Fish4Ever, I was up at Arnesen's over New Years and if you have sleds, you will no problems (as long as you don't run out of gas). ATV's, should be ok but there is ALOT of snow up there. If you want to drive out with a vehicle, you will have to take Babler's Road. It is clear all the way out to 16 Mile.

Wingnut, I haven't taken the sled into get fixed yet but maybe this weekend. I did get my auger re-coil fixed though. One thing at a time. Thanks again and keep in touch.

Report from 1/17-1/19

A buddy and our two boys were in 24 fow all three days. Put 16 in the bucket on Saturday, 17 on Sunday and 8 on Monday. Deadsticks were the ticket Saturday with plan red hooks or red demons. Sunday they were after the jigs: stop sign, rattling varmits. Monday was tough although we caught most fish that we marked. A lot of smaller sauger and eye's to keep you busy on Sat/Sun. Even added a handful of perch (12"-14") The eyes in the bucket ranged from 14-18". Only one slot fish, 21". Largest Sauger was 17". No pout.

Another great trip. Thanks TH for the fun!! We'll hope to be back again soon!!

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.
    • monstermoose78
      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
