Book Now for Ice Fishing!

The open water season is officially over at Rocky Point, but that only means one thing. Ice fishing is just around the corner on Lake of the Woods! It’s the perfect time to book your getaway. We are already filling up for hard water season, but there are still dates available.

At Arnesen’s Rocky Point, guests enjoy a full-service ice fishing experience. We provide the transportation, fish house for the day and bait. Our guides check on you throughout the day. After fishing, guests can come back to shore for dinner at Rock Harbor Lodge or prepare your own dinner in a comfortable cabin with a full kitchen.

If you’re one of those fishermen who never wants to get off the lake, you’re in luck at Arnesen’s. There are overnight fish houses, aka “sleeper houses” that allow you to stay on the lake — all day and all night. Think of it as a camping experience on the ice; but, you’re indoors with the gas propane heat keeping your group nice and cozy.

Whether you are in a day house or an overnight house, ice fishing at Rocky Point provides hours of entertainment. Please call us at 218-442-7215 to reserve your ice fishing trip. We look forward to hearing from you!

10/15/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau.

Great fall fishing has been reported this past week. Walleyes were active with most anglers anchored up and jigging with a minnow. It’s no surprise walleyes are responding to bait in anywhere from 9′ – 27′ of water.  There have been good reports around the lake. Structure and current areas holding good numbers of fish. Good walleye reports from Four Mile Bay in 10-15′. Pike continue to be active in bays and along shorelines. Trolling crankbaits will catch you a mixed bag.

Check back next week for our last fishing report of the season!

10/1/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau.

The traditional fall jig bite for walleyes is in full swing. There are various schools located across the south shore. Depths of 22-28′, anchored up and jigging with a fathead or frozen shiners has been successful. Anglers are going through a lot of fish, sorting through lots of smalls to ultimately get nice eaters. A lot of action. Some anglers still drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler with success. Some good walleye reports also from Four Mile Bay in 10-15′.

We are still booking for fall fishing! Check out our special offer and call us at 218-442-7215 to book your autumn getaway. Also, check back for a few more fishing reports as we close out the open water season.

9/10/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from our friends at the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau. On the south end, it’s been a great week of walleye fishing as seasons are slowly starting the change up at Lake of the Woods. Trees are turning colors and waters are starting to cool.

With a few windy days this week, anglers fished both along calmer shorelines and in the river finding some nice eaters for their efforts. Most walleyes are still being caught on crawler harnesses. Crankbaits are a good second choice. Walleyes are being caught in 7 – 15′ along shorelines and 24-36′ over mud.

As a rule, the trophy fish have been over deep mud with the eaters being shallower. With colder nights and warmer days, water temps are starting to drop into the mid 60’s with jigging starting to turn on.

Fall fishing is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to book your fishing adventure. Ask about our Fall Specials on charter fishing and lodging. Also, check back next week for another fishing report. We look forward to welcoming you!

9/4/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau. A lot of walleyes caught this week on the south shore of Lake of the Woods. Charter boats and guides are doing a nice job of finding good schools of eater walleyes as well as the slots and trophies. At times, eaters might be in a different location vs the big walleyes.

Walleyes are being caught in 14 – 36′ of water. The two main patterns are crawler harnesses and crankbaits. Best spinner colors are hammered gold, pink, glow white, glow red or orange. Shiny or brighter colors are good starts for crankbaits. It is important to get cranks down to the fish. In deeper water, downriggers, lead core line, snap weights and a 4-5 ounce bottom bouncer will all do the trick.

Fall fishing is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to book your fishing adventure. Ask about our Fall Specials on charter fishing and lodging. Also, check back next week for another fishing report. We look forward to welcoming you!

8/19/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau. Fishing remains excellent with a nice mix of eaters, slots and trophy walleyes. Two great ways to catch walleyes this time of year, crawler harnesses and crankbaits. Walleyes are hanging out on the deep mud in 30 – 36′ of water. Cover water by drifting or trolling. Crawler harnesses (snelled spinners) in hammered gold, pink, glow or orange with a 1-2 ounce weight.

The second technique for the fishing report is trolling crankbaits through various schools of walleyes over the deep mud. Get lures down with lead core line, a 4 ounce bottom bouncer, snap weights, 3 way rig or downriggers. Switch colors often but some starters, pink uv firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger, and gold.

7/27/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report on the south shore from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau. In addition to anglers catching good numbers of eater walleyes, there are a lot of big walleyes being caught and released. Now is that deep summer pattern anglers look forward to. Two main techniques. Drifting or pulling spinners with crawlers or leeches. Hammered gold, glow white and glow red are good colors. The second technique is trolling crankbaits over the deep mud. Trolling is a fun technique with no snags, miles and miles of space and thousands of walleyes.  29-34′ has been best. Still some walleyes are being caught in various shallow areas based on forage opportunities.

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill on Lake of the Woods. Our charter season is off to a good start with lots of trophy walleye and plenty for guests to take home. There are multiple options for areas to fish and the reefs have been picking up. We are mostly jigging right now. The shoreline bite has been steady with spinners in 4-12 feet of water. Several walleye over 28″ are being caught. In the last two weeks, I’ve had lots of customers that have caught their biggest walleye.

6/4/20 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Arnesen’s Rocky Point on Lake of the Woods.

We started our charter boat season on June 1, 2020 and our captains are reporting good fishing so far. Captain Jase Lamberson had the Sazenski group out for two days and said they caught lots of big fish with two being 30″, plus bringing home fish at the end of the day. Captain Jase reported that jigging was the trick for getting them to bite the past few days. Other small boats going out on their own are also reporting a nice bite without having to go too far from the resort.
