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.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
