Thanx Guys,

Celeb, I am not. Just love to fish and hunt just like you guys. I am very thankful for the amount of pub that I have gotten this year.

Bill Sherek, of Minnesota Bound was alot of fun to work with and was facinating to be with. His experiences that he is able to do with the show are unreal. The crew at Minnesota Bound are great people!

Look for another show in November of next fall on Fox. I did a couple days filming with Roger Cormier on MidWest Outdoors. The show is all about promoting Lake Mille Lacs and the events that we have up here other than just fishing. Roger is a real professional and I had alot of fun working with him and his producer Dennis.

Also, look for a feature story in next years Ice Fishing Addition of In-Fisherman Magazine next fall. In-Fisherman did a feature story on George Nitti and myself regarding the newest fishing machines and Lake Mille Lacs guiding.

Its all been extremely fun and exciting for me.

Fish On!!!

Minniwinni,

Unfortunately I will not be guiding in the summer. I am going to be too busy with our park model business. We have a couple of developments going on. One is going to be completed here in a month or so up in Perham, Mn check it out here at www.thecactusresortandrvpark.com

Our website is www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com for our park model cabins. We have our sales lot and offices in Onamia, Mn across from the Dairy Queen on Hwy 169.

We will have a five bedroom house behind our offices that we will be using as rentals for all you fisherman. I will be giving out all the details in a month or so on the rental rooms ammendities.

I will be out fishing when I get any free time you can bet on that. But I am not going to be able to schedule any of my fishing:( I am sure I will get a couple of hours in a week some how.:)

Fish On!!!

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
