Fishing Report 2/28/20

Here’s your latest ice fishing report from Captain Cole Buley on beautiful Lake of the Woods! Fishing has been steady around Rocky Point. We are fishing anywhere from 21-32 feet of water. Electronics are key. We’re noticing that anglers running smaller lures on the dead stick are picking up fish; the more natural presentation seems to be working best. On the jigging rod, go with something loud and proud to draw the fish in. As for colors, try anything neon when it’s overcast and on the sunny days, go with gold and silver. Good luck!
**As a reminder, fishing licenses expire on Feb. 29, 2020. You will need to purchase a new license beginning March 1, 2020.

Fishing Report 2/20/20

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Jase Lamberson on beautiful Lake of the Woods. The bite has been fair around Rocky Point. Some anglers are having good luck, while others say it’s taking a bit more work to get them to bite. We’re fishing anywhere from 27-33 feet of water. Electronics are very important for catching fish and you will have to work the fish off the bottom. Changing colors is key to figuring out what the fish want. The dead stick with a plain pink hook is working well. Best of luck!

Fishing Report 2/10/20

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Brett “Slim” Janicke on Lake of the Woods. The bite has been good, but the days when cold fronts/high pressure move through, it tends to be a little more spotty. Our reef depths are varying from right on the break line extending out to the mud ranging from 25-35 feet. Shoreline houses are finding luck in the 26-31 feet range. For colors, glow, glow, glow! Red, pink, green, white and the standard Lake of the Woods favorite, gold. Plain hooks or smaller jigs are working well on the deadstick. During this time of the year, electronics are very important. I’ve spent many visits in the houses with customers over the last couple of weeks and have seen countless “lookers”. A little more effort and a lot of hook changes are common in trying to get the stubborn ones to bite. Also, along with the time of year, watch for the suspended walleyes passing through; the fish are on the move and so are we! We are moving many houses daily to keep up with the changing conditions.

Fishing Report 1/31/20

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill on Lake of the Woods.
Ice conditions are excellent on Lake of the Woods. We are fishing on 26 inches of ice in most areas. We have houses on 12 different reefs and around Gull Rock. We are spread out for ten miles so we don’t put too much pressure on the fish, which helps keep us catching and not burning out an area. With the stable weather, the bite is getting better. Jigging glow lures is the best way to get them excited. On your second line, the dead stick/bobber with plain colored hook seems to be working well. Some bigger walleye are showing up, too. In last few days we’ve seen several 26 to 29 inch hawg walleyes caught and released. Some of these walleyes were suspended up to 12 feet off bottom, so a flasher is key to see these fish. We’re fishing 27 to 33 feet in most of our houses. Best of luck!

Fishing Report 1/21/20

Here’s your latest fishing report from Rocky Point guide Joe Fish on beautiful Lake of the Woods. The bite has been good in the areas we are fishing. It does take a little work getting fish to commit to biting, but when you get them hooked up, we’re seeing eater sauger and some nice walleye. A majority of our houses are in 27-31 ft. on shoreline breaks and the edges of reefs. Red, pink and firetiger orange have been the colors of choice for several groups. Electronics are very helpful. The ice conditions are good in our area. Our houses are spread out for 10 miles and are constantly on the move to find fish. Best of luck!

1/10/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Ed Albrecht at Arnesen’s Rocky Point. Fishing has been good near Rocky Point. Overall, consistent reports with a mix of walleye and lot of big saugers. We’ve been fishing anywhere from 25-30 ft. of water. I’ve seen equal amounts of fish being caught on jigging rods and off bobber setups. The glow in the dark red Lindy flyer has been the best producer for my groups so far. I’ve also seen people use green and white glow in the dark catching fish. Electronics are extremely helpful. Easton Edelen caught and released this big 24″ walleye on his first trip to Rocky Point. Best of luck out there! – Special Ed

Fishing Report 12/27/19

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill and Captain Brett “Slim” Janicke:
Fishing has been very consistent around Rocky Point. The preferred method is changing day to day from the dead stick to the jigging rod. Electronics are very important! Try a buckshot, macho minnow, or rip-n-rap tipped with a minnow head. Pay attention to whichever is doing better and adjust to the fish’s reaction; they may switch to liking one or the other more than once per day. Our shoreline break houses are staged in 23-27 ft of water. Our reef houses are staged from 26-32 ft. depending on the reef. The sauger bite has been strong with walleye mixed in plus some slot fish in our areas. Glow red, white and the UV colors have been very good on the jigging rod and dead stick. Remember to glow them up and don’t be afraid to change things up if a certain jig goes dead on you. Best of luck out there!

Fishing Report 12/20/19

Our ice fishing season is underway! We are fishing west of Rocky Point, as well as at Lambertson’s Rock and Twin Islands anywhere from 23-28 feet of water. The bite has been good so far. Guests are catching lots of little fish and we’ve seen some slot fish being released. Captain Ed Albrecht says the Red Lindy Flyer is working well for his groups. We are fishing in areas with 13-16″ of ice. Captain Cole Buley reports that pink and gold and green and gold are the hot color combinations right now. The colder temperatures will allow us to start moving toward the reefs and north of Rocky Point. As always, we advise extreme caution if you are fishing on your own. We have found anywhere from 4″-16″ of ice doing our checks. Please stick with an outfitter or resort this time of year. Best of luck!
