SCORE,

Coming in the summer of 2007 The Cactus Resort and RV Park will be opening. This resort has full state of the art rooms, with an indoor pool gameroom, laundry facility, and the rooms are complete with 2-3 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and full bathroom. Unfortunately we are not on the beach, but are within 5 miles of Big Pine Lake.

Also in conjunction with The Cactus Resort and RV Park, we have a full restaurant with a new bowling alley for the kids. Check us out www.thecactusresortandrvpark.com. This site doesn't have anything about the bowling, but you can send us an e-mail or give a call with any questions or booking.

Hey Cactus,

What do you guys charge to put a seasonal on a lot?

I may try and get my folks to move across state to check it out.

Woody,

Thank you for your interest. Our rates for a 2,000 Square foot lot is $2,000.00 for the season.

This not only gets your lot but in addition gives you exclusive access to our brand new INDOOR POOL, HOT TUB, and EXERCISE room, as well as the laundry facilities, bathroom, and all other ammenities in the park.

In addition the park is winterized, meaning that it will be open all year round, with the sewer and water still working (the first park in Minnesota to be winterized), this is only applies if your RV is winterized as well.

If you have any questions or for booking or availability information check out our website at www.thecactusresortandrvpark.com or feel free to drop me a personal e-mail or call.

I thought we weren't supposed to advertise on this site? Got in trouble a few years ago for doing something half this and got booted...

Was up in the DL area this weekend went shooting at the range. Got a new scope on my muzzleloader WOW!! How's fishing Hitman?

Family Resort with a good beach. Cedar Crest on White Earth Lake. Good owners Great beach. Swim area is all enclosed and has a deal out there with a slide in the water. Fishing can be done off of the dock they have and you catch walleyes and northerns off of the dock. Great lake to fish and swim in.

Woody,

If you were interested in seeing any pictures of the resort, I do have some that I can e-mail to you. Please keep in mind we are planning on opening in the summer of 2007, so it is not complete, but as you will see from the pictures it will truly be an extremely nice, high class park. Let me know if you would like any additional information

Check out Bad Medicine Resort on the east side of Bad Medicine lake. You won't find a cleaner lake. Scenery is fantastic. Fishings pretty good. Swimming is superb. And Don will make your whole family feel at home.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
