Best bang for the buck resort?

15 posts in this topic

Here is what I'm looking for. A couple nights stay on the east/south end, cooking facillities a bonus but not needed, a good launch, and decent beds for 2 people. Anyone know of something like this for around 30 bucks a night?

For only $30 you might have to tent it.

Jiggin, for $65.00 a night per person we can get you set up depending on the dates.

Now thats a pretty fair deal as Appeldoorn's is one of the best resorts on the lake for service. Nice cabins,great and friendly service. They also catch fish and could really give one some direction.

Appledorn's is a great resort. Brought my son up there two weekends ago, and I can't say enough about the place. It even seems the folks that stay there are friendly too. Oh yeah, the fishing is good in the nearby area, especially if the wind gets to whipping and you need to stay in close to shore. I'll definitely be back!

Guys,

Thank you so much for the kind words. We have had a ton of great people through the resort in the last couple of weeks and I can truly say that they have all been a pleasure to have stay with us. We looking forward to meeting many more FM'ers in the near future.

river runt,

It totally depends upon the forecasted winds. We have been very fortunate so far this year, as we have been able to leave them in almost every night.

huntemup,

Thank you very much. Hope to see you soon.

I went through appeldoorns all winter- They had great fishing and roads. Caught a lot of fish with the help of Cranker. Never had to go any further than the end of Doe Island reef. I will call Paul. Thanks!

Hey Paul, My family used to stay at your resort when it was Karpens and just want to say you've done a beutiful job with the place. A couple questions..... What's the earliest and the latest you guys you guys will launch/pull in boats? Also are there any plans for a possible harbor/breakwall in the future? Thanks!

We put boats in between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

We are looking at several options for a breakwall, but don't want to ruin the beautiful beach that we have.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
