Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort would like to announce that we are extremely happy to have two of some of the best fisherman this lake has to offer for guide services this year. Mr. Steve Fellegy along with Mr. Tony Roach are going to be our feature guides for the 2007 open water season.

Steve will be guiding on Mille Lacs when he isn't out chasing another championship on the PWT circuit. For those who do not know, Steve Fellegy and his family are legends on Mille Lacs Lake. 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!!!

Not only will you fish out of a beautiful pro staffed LUND boat,you'll also learn allot from both Tony and Steve when you book your trip with either one of these Pro's through Appeldoorn's Resort!

We also want to share with you Captain Hook's Launch Service out of Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay. Captain Tim Joy and his son Shawn will show you a great time on Mille Lacs Lake. Last year Captian Hooks Launch had plenty of coolers full of walleye and perch.

We cannot express with you how happy we are to have both Tony and Steve affiliated with Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort along with the Joy's and Captain Hook's Launch Service! Experience fishing with the best! Call and book a cabin and a trip now, before they are all scheduled and booked! Don't be left on shore when the bite is on.

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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
