Thank You Very Much To All FM'ers

4 posts in this topic

I just wanted to take the time to thank each and every FM'er for the support that you have given me over the past year.

I have met so many great people that this website has given me the opportunity to greet. I am am truely blessed! This website is a awesome tool that provides not only valuable information but also "Opportunities"! With that being said; I also want to thank Rick, Tom, Deitz, Pauly, and all the other FM Pro Staff members for their support.

I haven't been as active on the site over the past few weeks due to the changes I have been working out in my personal life. I have been offered and accepted another opportunity in the park model cabin business and will no longer be affiliated with Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort & Park Model Sales. It has been a extremely difficult decision and has been very stressful on me, but, I will be still living in the Mille Lacss area and still trying to give you the accurate information on whats happening on and around Lake Mille Lacs.

I hope to stay in contact with all of you here that have become my friends. I want to thank the Appeldoorn's for everything that they did for me and wish them all the best with their resort. I also want to wish Paul Waldowski the very best too. Paul is a great guy and very hard worker and has brought allot to the Appeldoorn's. I hope you all continue to support the resort and Paul.

Thank you all again for everything and I hope to see you up here on Mille Lacs!

Fish On!!!

Congratulations on your new job. Change is never easy, but you've got to look out for number 1. It was great meeting you this winter and I look forward to hanging out again. After seeing the work you did for Appeldoorns I have no doubt you'll do well wherever you work.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
