Fall Fishing at Rocky Point

Join us for fall fishing at Rocky Point!

September and October are some of the best fishing months for us at Rocky Point. Fish are starting to stack up on flats near the reefs and will soon be loading up on reefs and points. The last few weeks we’ve had good luck pulling spinners with live bait on flats, catching nice keeper walleyes with some 20″+ fish as a bonus. Water temperatures have dropped a little so the jig bite will be here soon. Fishing just gets better as we move into the fall season. We look forward to seeing you on Lake of the Woods.

3/11/22 Fishing Report

3/11/22 Fishing Report – Here’s your latest fishing report from Rocky Point Guide Tony Rinde on beautiful Lake of the Woods.
We’re fishing the outsides of the reefs and in the mud flats anywhere from 26-34 feet of water. We’re trying to stay with the larger pods of fish for those better quality walleye. Hot colors have been wonderbread, red, green and white glow. The pike are starting to move into the shallows, but not quite in full swing, so we have houses staged in 12-16 ft. for tip-up fisherman. The best bait for pike fishing has been smelt and live suckers. Ben Prodell (pictured below) landed a 33″ and 42″ pike fishing with me this week. Good luck!

2/23/22 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Cole Buley on beautiful Lake of the Woods. We’re starting to move off the reefs a little to chase bigger pods of fish out in the mud. Electronics are a key tool at this time of year. Fishing tight to the bottom and using a more natural presentation is attracting those fish that are looking to take a bite. I’m seeing good action between 22 to 34 feet. The Omann group fished with me over the weekend and got into some beautiful fish. Good luck and tight lines!

2/10/22 Fishing Report

We sat down with Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill and Captain Ed Albrecht to get the latest fishing report on beautiful Lake of the Woods.

February is here and we’re spread out to some of our favorite areas for fishing, so we are constantly hitting new schools of fish. The barometer has been up and down with the changing fronts, so the bite is changing day to day. Be ready to change the size of your lures and use electronics to see what kind of mood the fish are in. We’re catching eaters and have seen an increase of big walleyes being caught. Best of luck!

1/25/22 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Rocky Point guide, Joe Fish, on beautiful Lake of the Woods.

We’re spread out around the south shore and fishing several reefs, rock humps and shoreline breaks. Anywhere from 26-31 feet is prime depth. Fish have been tight to the bottom, so use your electronics and jig hard on the bottom to pull fish up. Dead sticks are working 4 to 6 inches off the bottom. I recommend using anything red glow for the presentation. Good luck!

1/16/22 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Nick Dejno at Arnesen’s Rocky Point on beautiful Lake of the Woods.

Our fishing area expands each week and we’re fishing at all the major reefs around Rocky Point, with the exception of Archie’s. We hope to be out there in the coming weeks. Our houses are staged around 30 ft. of water and I’m seeing slightly better production from my deeper houses than the shallow ones. The hot colors for my groups have been red and gold or pink and gold. Also, Wonder Bread has been working well. Set both your jigging rod and dead stick 2-4” off the bottom. Good luck!
We still have availability for day house fishing, sleeper fish houses and on-shore lodging packages in 2022! Please call us at 800-535-7585 to book a reservation. We look forward to hearing from you!

12/21/21 Fishing Report

Here’s the first ice fishing report of the 2021-22 season from Captain Cole Buley at Arnesen’s Rocky Point on Lake of the Woods!

The bite has been good since we started the season last week. We are fishing around Gull Rock and Twin Islands, but hope to expand our fishing area in the coming week. We’re seeing guests come in with a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, eelpout, perch and pike. Red and pink lures are working well, but gold and silver are always a good option, too. The ice is starting to form up and our houses are in areas with around 12 inches. Ice conditions vary around our end of the lake so please travel with caution if you are fishing on your own. We look forward to seeing you at Rocky Point! ~ Captain Cole Buley

We have several different options to choose from, including on-shore lodging and fishing packages, as well as sleeper fish house packages. We also offer day house fishing if you’re looking for a fun way to spend the day with family and friends.

Our customers are comfortably transported to our heated fish houses with track vehicles. Our experienced guides position the fish houses on exactly the right spot. Rocky Point is located next to a wide variety of bottom structure and the winter guides move the fish houses constantly to keep our customers on fish.

Fish houses are heated with safe and convenient gas wall units with two holes available per person. With the fish houses, all the bait is included. You are responsible for your own tackle and poles.

Fish houses are located on numerous rock reefs and surrounding flats. These areas support such game fish species as: Walleye, Sauger, Perch and Northerns. Due to water clarity, the best fishing is from dawn to dusk. Lake of the Woods offers to its fishermen generous limits of Walleye and Sauger.

Please call us at 800-535-7585 if you have any questions or would like to book an ice fishing getaway. We look forward to hearing from you!
