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.

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!

Wow Paul every thing looks so nice and new and it looks like a great beach, is there over nite dock parking for the boats? Or do you have to pull them out when your not using them?

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.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
