Appledoorn's Full Moon Piggies

7 posts in this topic

Went out for a bit last night with Paul Waldowski out of Appledoorn's Sunset Bay and the bigger fish came out to play. It was fast and furious, well at least as fast as we could bring the piggy in. Thought it was a snag or whatever. Then it moved smile.gif

First off the fish seem to be schooled. Water temp is 49 F. Running speed about 1.3 mph with a #13 Floating Rapala in 7' of water. Again I repeat we went out of Appledoorn's - the launch service they provide is second to none and right now the fishing is pretty darn good.

Here are a couple fish we finally decided to take pics of at the end of the trip.

I'll let you guess their sizes and NO they are not small weed wacker eyes cool.gif

[I have to add: the HSO Arctic Armor camo suit did a nice job on a very cool night (29 F) with water splashing on me I was toasty warm. Call or E-mail WalleyeDan and ask for the HSO Camo suit at:

Here are some pics of the HSO Arctic Armor suit:

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
