Thanks Appeldoorns

I just wanted to thank Appeldoorns Sunset Bay resort for going above and beyond to help out a couple of my clients.

I had two guys on the only vacation they get all year run into some problems with guides, tough conditions and places to stay after they stopped at Upper Red on their round trip. Well I made ONE phone call to Appeldoorns and within a few minutes Appeldoorns staff called back with a place to stay and a guide lined up for the next day.

Thanks, I apprecaite it as I'm sure my clients did also.

JP,

Thank you for the referral. The bite has been tough here also with the wind blowing the way that it has, but Tony was able to get them a couple of slot fish and they also managed a big fish of 27 inches. Total for the day was around 15 walleyes so they did get on some fish.

Thanks again for the kind words, we hope to be able to return the favor in the future.

Good deal, those guys had a tough go of it on Red, have to admit not many clients stick it out in 6' swells but they gave it their all, glad they got some fish.

Now if we can just get this wind quit for a few days.

I second this post, we spent last wed - sat at Appledorn's, their cabins are top rate, that big screen TV came in handy since the wind blew hard out of the NW every day we were there, not really fishing friendly water. We plan on going back next year and hoping for better weather. We ended up having a good time on some of the smaller lakes within 10-15 miles of Mille Lacs though.

Hope you enjoyed the brownies Paul, they were good.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
