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 also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff

        For this time of year you could use smaller dipseys if you don't have planer boards. Or what I do sometimes is have  longer rods towards the front of the boat and shorter rods towards the back, no dipseys or boards, and just troll that way
