Thanks Appeldoorns

5 posts in this topic

I just wanted to thank Appeldoorns Sunset Bay resort for going above and beyond to help out a couple of my clients.

I had two guys on the only vacation they get all year run into some problems with guides, tough conditions and places to stay after they stopped at Upper Red on their round trip. Well I made ONE phone call to Appeldoorns and within a few minutes Appeldoorns staff called back with a place to stay and a guide lined up for the next day.

Thanks, I apprecaite it as I'm sure my clients did also.

JP,

Thank you for the referral. The bite has been tough here also with the wind blowing the way that it has, but Tony was able to get them a couple of slot fish and they also managed a big fish of 27 inches. Total for the day was around 15 walleyes so they did get on some fish.

Thanks again for the kind words, we hope to be able to return the favor in the future.

Good deal, those guys had a tough go of it on Red, have to admit not many clients stick it out in 6' swells but they gave it their all, glad they got some fish.

Now if we can just get this wind quit for a few days.

I second this post, we spent last wed - sat at Appledorn's, their cabins are top rate, that big screen TV came in handy since the wind blew hard out of the NW every day we were there, not really fishing friendly water. We plan on going back next year and hoping for better weather. We ended up having a good time on some of the smaller lakes within 10-15 miles of Mille Lacs though.

Hope you enjoyed the brownies Paul, they were good.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
