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!!!

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
