Appledoorn's Full Moon Piggies

Recommended Posts

Rick

Went out for a bit last night with Paul Waldowski out of Appledoorn's Sunset Bay and the bigger fish came out to play. It was fast and furious, well at least as fast as we could bring the piggy in. Thought it was a snag or whatever. Then it moved smile.gif

First off the fish seem to be schooled. Water temp is 49 F. Running speed about 1.3 mph with a #13 Floating Rapala in 7' of water. Again I repeat we went out of Appledoorn's - the launch service they provide is second to none and right now the fishing is pretty darn good.

Here are a couple fish we finally decided to take pics of at the end of the trip.

I'll let you guess their sizes and NO they are not small weed wacker eyes cool.gif

[I have to add: the HSO Arctic Armor camo suit did a nice job on a very cool night (29 F) with water splashing on me I was toasty warm. Call or E-mail WalleyeDan and ask for the HSO Camo suit at:

Here are some pics of the HSO Arctic Armor suit:

      When trolling the raps on a 3 way rig how fast are you going generally if you don’t mind me asking

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀
