1/20/23 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Charlie McCarthy on beautiful Lake of the Woods.

Fishing is starting to pick up now that we’re in our track vehicles and fishing our core areas. We have houses set anywhere from 24-30 ft. of water. Jigging and dead stick is about 50/50 with dead stick working the best. If you’re using the dead stick, try a plain red hook set about 4-6 inches off the bottom. For jigging, try using gold, pink, red, fire tiger or Wonder Bread colors. Some jigs I suggest are a Tingler Spoon or Buck-Shot Rattle Spoon. Good luck!

1/6/23 Fishing Report

1/6/23 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Nick Dejno on beautiful Lake of the Woods. We’re fishing at all the major reefs around Rocky Point, except for Archie’s Reef. On average the ice thickness is about 21-22″, but we are still seeing a few spots with 18″. Overall, fishing has been good for my groups. We have seen that 28-32 ft. has been the best for depth so far, but there hasn’t been much of a morning bite. We’re seeing that the bite does pick up from 10:30am to 2pm. My go-to set up for the jigging rod is using a buckshot with just the minnow head. For the dead stick, I prefer to use a plain red hook with a split shot 2-4″ off the bottom. Good luck out there and Happy New Year.

12/24/22 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Cole Buley on beautiful Lake of the Woods.

We’re fishing depths from 22 to 31 ft. Smaller lures and more natural presentations have been working best. I’ve also seen neon colors and glow jigs killing it. On average, the ice thickness is about 14-15 inches where our houses are placed. As the ice thickens, we are hoping to start reaching out to our favorite annual spots sometime after the new year; we’re just waiting on the ice conditions to keep improving. Happy holidays and best of luck out there!

12/12/22 Fishing Report & Ice Update

12/12/22 Fishing Report and Ice Update

Here’s your latest fishing report and ice update from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill on beautiful Lake of the Woods.
Our team has done several miles of checking ice and hard labor getting a trail through the rough ice. We are fishing in areas with 12″+ of ice. We’re spread out in 21-27ft. of water. The bite has been a mid-morning run until about 4pm. In the last few days, we’re seeing mostly saugers with occasional walleye and perch — a few walleye over 20″ and one 28.5″ released. Glow spoons have been working well, but the dead stick (set line) is also producing. Just a note that while we are fishing only safe ice in our areas, our team has also found 4″ ice only a few miles from our houses. If you’re not fishing with an outfitter, make sure to check the ice and be safe out there.

Book Now For Ice Fishing 2023!

We are already filling up for hard water season, but there are still dates available to book for the 2023 season on Lake of the Woods.

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!

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

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!
