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.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
