Does Appledorn's have its own boat ramp? We are looking at staying there in Mid July. Also, will cabin's 9 or 10 be finished by then and what's the fishing like around Mid July on that side of the lake?

Thanks

Hello Rangerforme,

Thank you for considering Appelddorn's Sunset Bay Resort! We very much appreciate that.

We are really looking at a great year of open water fishing this year! I know there will be some real dandy trophy's caught this year.

With the addition of Steve Fellegy and Tony Roach and the brand new renovated cabins #9 and #10 (the old lodge and cafe)on that beautiful sandy beach the resort is really starting to take shape.

Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort has some really great things that are in the works, that I know that all the FM community will like! So stay tunned to FM for further developments!!!

To answer your question; Appeldoorns does not have a boat ramp. We are working on a portable boat ramp with a couple of different companies at the time. Right now we do launch your boat for you. You will load up your boat and will go ahead and ride in your boat while we launch you with our tractor. When you come in you can either tie up to our dock or call us and we will be ready for you when you come in to load you and your boat back up. It works pretty well.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Fish On!!!

Cranker,

My group will be staying at Appledorn's for opening weekend. 13 guys, 4 cabins, 4 boats. Should be a great time!!!! Counting the days!!!

Question about your last post. So when we check in, we can arrange for the resort to pull us to the launch with the tractor? That would be great...I can launch the boat while my buddies do the hard work of unpacking the truck. hahaha!

All four boats we are bringing are good sized fishing boats, including an 18 foot fiberglass I/O fish and ski.(which is probably the heaviest) With the low water levels, are we going to be able to get these boats launched and be able to dock them at the resort?

Stop by Cabins 1,2,3 or 6 and say hi..If we are not out fishing we will be eating, drinking or gambling...

Hello Muskieguy,

Thank you for making your resevations at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort. It should be a excellent year of fishing!

Now if we can get the weather to cooperate with us a little.

For our guests we will launch your boat and then you will be able to either tie up to the dock (depending on the amount of water and boats) or we will pull you back out.

We look forward to having you stay with us at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort!

Fish On!!!

Cranker Hello,

I used to go up to your resort whe Joe owned it. DO you now have the fleet of Masseys? I always liked that tractor launch.

Assuming there is enough water to float boats near the dock, is it possible there will be too many boats to where not everybody gets a dock spot? Does each cabin get one reserved dock spot?

Slugo,

These are the same tractors that Joe used. We are spiffing them up a little and only launching boats for our guests that are staying here at the resort and for tourney's for now. That could change in the future.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
