Thank you To Everyone!

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 Lacs 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!!!

Jim, Thank you so much for all the info you post on this forum. It has helped me allot in planning my trips to the pond.

You know that first annual FM get together you held at Appeldoorn's is what brought me back up to Mille Lacs grin.gif. What a great time we had that trip crazy.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif.

Jim, I have just what the doctor orders for your kind of stress problem. We can take my boat or yours, either way, we will get the job done grin.gifgrin.gif.

The VERY BEST to you, with the park model cabin businss.

See you soon grin.gif.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
