      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Steve is what one would truley call a professional fisherman! We wish Steve much success this year in the 2007 PWT season!

Tony Roach, is our other featured guide. Tony is also a awesome professional fisherman that will not only get you on fish, but will show you a good time. You might reconize the last name! Tony has all that experience that the Roach "Mr. Walleye" name carry's!!!

Thanks tunrevir,

Good to hear from you! As you know we are trying to build that really nice FAMILY fishing resort destination on Mille Lacs Lake. We are trying to attract a different cliental that would not normally come to Mille Lacs Lake.

We are hopeful to attract more couples and families with kids. We believe that our kids are the future of our business and for the great lake of Mille Lacs too!

We are looking at adding more to Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort as the spring goes along here. Stay tuned for more details.

Fish On!!!

Thanks cranker; Some great families you've added to your appledorn family. Not sure how any other resort can try to get an edge on you know. Keep up the good work, we all appreciate what you have been doing for this lake.

I have fished with Tony Roach. He is the best walleye guide I know. You can't go wrong booking a trip with either of these guys. If there are fish to be caught Tony will find them. Tony is a real class act. You will learn a lot from him.

I have only ice fished with him but it was a pleasure to run and gun on the ice with him. He's not afraid of a little hard work to find the fish for his clients.

Good Luck and tight lines.

Just ran across this topic and had to say something . . .

As of this last winter, I've become convinced that Roach is now absolutely the finest walleye guide on Mille Lacs. Considering the quantity and quality of guides currently working the lake, this is no small statement. Still, day after day after day, he busts his tail, drilling literally hundreds of holes in an effort to find and stay on fish-- all with a great big grin. Along the way, he offers key little tips at just the right time-- nuggets of wisdom that will help you better understand the process of catching walleyes. Or just catch the fish that's currently eyeballing your lure.

Beyond all this, though, he's a very good-natured fella who's fun to fish with. Remember his name, because Tony's fast become one of the best fishing guides in Minnesota-- ice or open water.

Dates are filling up fast and the season hasn't even started yet. Its just going to be a great season! I spoke with Tony Roach last night on another scheduled guided trip for Tony. I talked with Steve this morning and he is expecting a great year of open water fishing!

Remember both Tony Roach and Steve Fellegy are some of the top professionals on this lake! And now with the addition of Tim Anderson on the Appeldoorn's guide service we feel we have one of the best team of professionals on the lake.

Tony Roach specializes mostly on the walleyes with some muskie. Steve Fellegy and his family are Mille Lacs icons and can find anyone any kind of fish. The Fellegy family grew up on this lake and know it like their back yard. Tim Andersen has been fishing this lake for years for those monster muskies.

All three of the guides will provide you with a Mille Lacs experience that will last you a life time. Go to www.sunsetbayml.com or contact the resort to book your fishing guided experience with any of our guides.

      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious 
    • crappie king 42
      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
