6/7/21 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Cole Buley at Arnesen’s Rocky Point on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
We’re fishing anywhere from 12+ feet of water. We’re still vertical jigging with shiners and leeches. We are just starting to get into drifting and pulling spinners with crawlers. Water temps are slowly getting warmer; we’re seeing anywhere from 59-68 degrees. Our charter boats have been busy this week and we’re seeing an average bite on the lake right now. Good luck out there!
Check back for more fishing reports and updates on our open water season on Lake of the Woods! We can be reached by calling 800-535-7585. We look forward to seeing you at Rocky Point!

3/8/21 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Rocky Point! We are still fishing at Rocky Point with the warm up in temperature. We continue to monitor the ice and as long as it’s safe, we will continue to fish! Captain Jordan “Ole” Olson says fishing has picked up in the past few days. The shallows in the morning and evening have produced decent fish; 26-30 ft. is still a good depth as well in some areas. Choose a small presentation – a full minnow on a plain hook is a good choice. The northern bite is getting better and we are seeing more each day.

Don’t forget to start thinking about your open water vacation! We are already filling up fast for the spring and summer seasons. Take advantage of our Spring Special with 20% off lodging and charter boats. Call 800-535-7585 with questions or to book a reservation. We look forward to welcoming you to Rocky Point!

1/23/21 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Ed Albrecht at Arnesen’s Rocky Point on beautiful Lake of the Woods.
The last few days have been producing a lot of nice eater fish in the 12 to 15 inch range, although the bite hasn’t been very aggressive. On the bobbers, I’ve seen a plain hook with a split shot 6-8 inches higher producing the most fish. Place the dead stick 1-3 inches off the bottom.
For jigs, the smaller tackle is working better (Red Flyer or glow Buck Shot). I haven’t seen the more aggressive Chubby Darter or Rapalas doing quite as well. Mixed in with eaters, we have been seeing some nice slot fish and big northers. My houses are anywhere from 26-32 feet of water. Good luck!
Check back next week for another ice fishing report from our Rocky Point guides!

1/11/21 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Cole Buley on beautiful Lake of the Woods. We’re currently fishing in the following areas: Gull Rock, Twin Island, 12 Mile and Arnesen’s Reef. Our houses are staged anywhere from 21′ to 32′ of water. We’ve seen ice thickness anywhere from 18 inches to 4 ft. The bite is better now that we’re getting to areas we normally fish. White, gold, silver, pink and green have been hot colors this week. Smaller hooks and jigs are working best; that more natural presentation seems to be getting it done. Good luck!
Check back next week for another fishing report by one of our fantastic Rocky Point guides.

1/4/21 Fishing Report 

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill on beautiful Lake of the Woods. We have all of our houses out and we’re fishing in 29-30 ft. of water. They’re catching mostly saugers with walleye mixed in. Several bigger walleyes being caught up to 30 inches. Mainly dead stick fishing, but jigging with electronics is working, too. Fish are tight to the bottom, so keep it close, around 6 inches off the bottom. Best of luck!
We are taking ice fishing bookings through March. We have both sleeper fish house and day house availability. Call us at 218-442-7215 to make your reservation. We look forward to welcoming you to Lake of the Woods!

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.
