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!!!

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
