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.

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!

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.

      I have OR 18s on the front and OR16s on the back and it works just fine. I have never had a board get off which is what you want on Superior. I use a mix of Offshore and Opti Tackle boards.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then the eyes moved in and I decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
