The Appeldoorn's feel with the growth of Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort on the lake along with the Appeldoorn's Park Model Sales www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com in Onamia, Paul will be a big addition to the Appeldoorn family business.

Paul will be running the resort and I (The Cranker) will be running the Park Model Business along with helping out at the resort and marketing both business's.

"This is very exciting for all us." I have always wanted to live on Mille Lacs Lake and run a quality resort like Appeldoorn's. And now the Appeldoorn's have given me an opportunity to do both, and I am really excited to be working with the Appeldoorn's and The Cranker." says Paul

Paul and I along with HotSpotsOutdoors have already put a fishing event on the calender. Everyone, please mark the September 21st,22nd 2007 for the very first HotSpotsOutdoors "Harvest Moon Walleye Tournament" sponsored by "Lund Boats" www.lundboats.com and "HotSpotOutdoors" out of Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort www.sunsetbayml.com. Cash payouts for largest two day weight, largest fish, and largest one day limit and a hospitality tent with a drinks and food will be avaliable.

Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is very much looking forward to continue building its relationship with Fishing Minnesota/HotSpotOutdoors and Lund Boats www.lundboats.com on this event along with other events in the future, both in the summer and winter months.

"Everyone, is really going to want to see our new cabins 9 and 10." says Paul. "These cabins might just be the best rental cabins on the lake! We are going to get these pictures of 9 and 10 up on the www.sunsetbayml.com website here within the next couple of weeks. I am also very excited about the Four Season Park Model RV Cabin concept that the Appeldoorn's have. These Park Models are going to be the best alternative to owning a cabin there is. They are unbelievable! Everyone should check these Park Model RV Cabins that are four seasoned! I know you will be suprised at what the Appeldoorn's and The Cranker" are offering.

I also want to invite all of you that haven't seen Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort to come on up and really see what this fine resort has to offer. I feel the Appeldoorn's Resort is unlike all the other resorts on Mille Lacs. Thats why I took this position. Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is truely your family/corperate oriented fishing resort with very nice facilities! Can you tell that I am excited! Says Paul.

I personally am excited about Paul coming on board. With his experience and enthusiasm its going to be alot of fun for us and above all for you!

Paul and I will be posting the Harvest Moon Walleye Tournament regulations here within the next couple of weeks. Please stay stuned for further developments. This tourney is going to be a big one! So get the net!

The Cranker & Paul -- WOW!!!!!

Paul, Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never met Paul, just numerous e-mails to him on getting me set up for Fall Crankbait trolling, and trying to get together for a day on the water this year.I spoke to him on the phone in the Fall. Thanks for all your help Paul!!! All I can say is that I'm very impressed with him. He is always willing to share his knowledge to everyone !!!!! He took time to e-mail me when I was first new to this web site. Made me feel welcome.

Cranker, I'm looking forward to meeting you this year. After reading all the positive and good words about you in the Winter forums, you and Paul seem to be the perfect team!!!!

Appeldoorn's must now be #1 on Mille Lacs with everything they have done this year!!!!!

Please keep me posted on the September Tournament.

Congrats to you Paul, you have a job I'd love to have! Cranker, man you guys just keep it going like that battery bunny in the commercial except instead of going and going....it is better and better and.........! I look foreward to getting up there again and maybe fishing this summer a bit and quite possibly the fall tourney as well! I don't typically fish it in the summers as much as the fall months so maybe I'll have a bit of a chance agaist the FM pros out there. If not, I know I'd have a great time! Again, Congrats to you Paul and keep up the good work Cranker!

I would like to thank everyone for all of the phone call and e-mails that I have received over the last couple of days. Your support and encouragement are greatly appreciated. I would also like to thank the Appeldoorn's for giving me the opportunity to build Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort into one of the premier Family and Fishing Resorts on the Lake.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the upcoming months.

Congratulations Paul. I'm sure you will be a welcome addition to the resort. Enjoy your time on the freshwater giant. Now I definitely have to swing by this open water season and shoot the breeze.

TR,

Funny you should mention that.... but both Cranker and I spent the day on the beach working on our short game. He never did manage to get up and down.

On a serious note, we are working on a few play and stay packages that will feature golf and fishing.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
