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!!!

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
