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!!!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
