Appledoorns Sunset Bay

4 posts in this topic

We stayed in a couple of Paul's 10x20 houses over the weekend and while the fishing was at best... slower, it was not for lack of effort of Paul and his crew. I know lots of places want your $$ and some even genuinely want you to have a good time but I really felt like Paul put in that extra effort to try and get us on some fish. Thanks again Paul. Those of you that haven't tried Appledoorns yet, JUST GO THERE! Our group is changing our opener reservations from another resort to go here.

dfv,

Thank you so much for the kind words. We have been working our tails off trying to stay in fish this year. So far we are on about our 6th move, and for the first time this year I feel good about where we are.

Was also up there this weekend in house 29. Didn't catch anyfish in the house or get a bit. But we did only spend most of the time in the house sleeping or eating with rattle reels set. Found some action in the deeper water in 30-32fow with the perch. We didn't run into any eyes until Sunday morning fish the reef in 14fow. We didn't catch any eyes though, just saw them on the camera! Serves was great, house was great, but fishing is fishing. Not always going to catchem!

Delta--oh cripes! I was in house 27; I could see your house right out from my window. I told the wife I was going to walk over and see how "house 29" was doing for fish but she just kind of gave a blank look so I didn't but I did go to 26 behind me and the guys there only had 1 perch when I asked them.

Fishing was very very SLOW!!!

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
