Just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic season, I really appreciate what you did for me up there. You guys run a top notch resort and I commend you for that. I hope everything went well for you on saturday night into sunday. Also, good luck getting all your rentals in. I didn make it home saturday night, thanks for your concern. It was pretty stupid to travel home that late, never again. I'll keep in touch and will definatley be up there next season. I'm not too much of a summer fisherman but if I go I will be coming up there.

Thanks again Cranker

Cranker what can I say? My last trip was cut short to Appeldoorn's but never fear I'll be up again soon.....I have to get my hands on some of those jumbos before ice out. Tell the rest of the gang at the resort thanks for putting together a quality, family run place that caters to my habit of hanging out with buddies, having a couple of cold adult beverages and, every now and then, catching a fish. You have my number so if you ever need a fishing partner for a day give me a call.

Minniwinni,

I can not take any of the credit. The credit goes to Chuck and Marilyn Appeldoorn along with their son Brian and the rest of the staff. They have put alot of hard earned money and sweat into this resort to get it where it is today.

Its only going to get better! Wait till next year even more to offer. The Appeldoorn's want to bring a premier resort atmosphere to Mille Lacs Lake!

Thanx for the kind words and hope to meet ya soon!]

Fish On!!!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
