Thanks Paul

6 posts in this topic

We (Steve, Glen, Bryce, Jim) want to THANK YOU for your accommodations, good fishing advice, and hospitality at Sunset Bay over N.Y. eve. Optimistically I asked the clerk at Portside what the fish were currently 'biting on', "nutten" was the answer. Your advice to go deeper than where our house was (15ft) to 25ft got us into 6 keeper Jumbos, and my PB at 13in. The 6 hole deluxe worked out great for the 4 of us. I can also vouch for 'beyond the call of duty' service in the summer. Keep up the great work!

Rx4eyes, Glad to hear you had a great time and caught your personal best, that is always the icing on the cake. I know what you mean though, some individuals in the resort and hospitality business are just there to make money.....some are there because they have the passion for the sport and truly care about whether other people do well and enjoy their experience (they still need a paycheck too though!). If I go to a bait store or shop to buy supplies and ask for advice on the fishing conditions and they are tight-lipped or reply "nuttin", I don't ever step foot back in there. There is something to be said about helping out others. From what I have witnessed, Paul is one of the top notch ones. Although I don't stay at resorts or rent fish houses much because I like to rough it usually (tests your character), I will consider Appeldoorns and the other sponsor resorts first when I do decide to pamper myself because of the genuine care they have for us "tourists". My hats off to all of the first class resorters. wink.gif

When I was there I did have to move around and drill hundreds of holes but I caught ALOT of fish in 9 days. Every day I had a tlak with Paul about what where when and how I fished that day and his feedback and encouragement went a long way.

Paul is a solid guy and I will be back there next year for 10 days of early ice.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
