      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 .

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!!!

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.

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
