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!!

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale
