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.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
