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 don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
