Rental Recommendation (for a buddy on leave)

20 posts in this topic

Hey all, I have a buddy coming home for a two-week leave from Kosovo on January 2nd & he's looking to rent a place Mille Lacs with his wife & two kids for a couple of days. I've never rented a house up there, so I was hoping a few of you could steer me to a good place based on personal experience. I've looked at the sponsors page, but am interested in some feedback based on folks who've rented already. Thanks a lot!

I stayed at Appledoorn's in a cabin for 10 days and for me that's the way to go.

The cabins are nice and new, cable TV, wireless internet, fireplace and full kitchen.

Paul is a great guy and helpful with the fishing.

I did take a look at the permanents and they were nice and placed well on and around Doe Island reef. Because I wanted the creature comforts and am fishing from a sled with a portable I went with cabin.

From what I saw at the time last week, Appeldoorn's and Hunter's had the best roads plowed.

Good Luck,

John

When he decides on a place, why dont we all throw in $10-20 each for him and his family via the resort to say thanks to a serviceman and cover his w/e.

Hey guys, that's hugely generous of you.

I've sent him an email but haven't heard back yet - he's sometimes off base for up to a week at a time, so it could be a bit. But once I find out I'll post the info here.

Harry, I'll throw him your web address as well. grin.gif

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      Camping on west side for the weekend.  Anyone else be up that way.  Will have boat and maybe open seats when the kids get tired of fishing.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
