This is a great opportunity to learn from some of the best walleye guys here on FM, and a great time overall. I'd highly encourage you to look into this great offer and great weekend.

I'll be bringing the muskie gear as well, as Appeldoorns is located on great muskie waters too!

Last years gathering was not only fun, but in attendance were some of the finer walleye anglers I've had the pleasure of meeting. The 75 degree and sunny lake shore seminar was one of the best I've been to.

If you are even remotely thinking about doing this, do it. It's an event you will not forget.

Paul,

I was hoping you would do this again. Need to see how I can work this in around a Wedding also.

To anyone, thinking about going. Paul and the staff at Appeldoorn's will take care of you. Very nice Cabins, and awesome boat launching.

Definitely a good time with lots of very knowledgeable Mille Lacs anglers to ask questions. Wish I could be there for the great time and fishing you'll all have. I'm in Wi that weekend on a prior commitment.

Enjoy!

Chris,

Took your word on the Ram 2000 rod holders and ordered two of them over the weekend. Hopefully I can squeeze this in with a Wedding also this weekend. It may only be for a day or the night trolling though.

Ok....reservation made. It was nice talking to you Paul.

Looking forward to meeting you.

As recommended I won't be bringing my 14 ft. boat so I will be looking for an open seat. grin

I do have references from FM'ers...the Annandale GTG and the Womens GTG at Lake Osakis.

HFDude,

Line counter reels work great. We mainly pull husky jerk-baits and shadraps.

Sadly, I won't be able to attend this year, and that's a real drag. I had a ball last year and from the looks of the roll call this year should be even better.

The reset for the GFCI is right inside the door of cabin 5. grin

      I would love to see more restrictions on all species but they have to include a protected slot.  There are so many success stories it should be obvious by now.  It seems to work better when a mid-range length is protected or all fish over a certain length go back.  I have heard concerns that restriction will reduce interest including from out of state (economic impact), but with better fishing I doubt that is the case.  I think what helps with this is allowing 1 trophy over a certain size in your limit.  As for the stunted theory...as a kid I fished a lake where I could limit out on 8" crappies any time but never caught one over 9".  We were told to keep as many as possible so we could thin them out.  A 9" minimum was put on the lake.  And like magic when I went back and fished as an adult almost all the crappies were just under 9", but I caught a limit between 9-12 inches.  I remain somewhat skeptical of the stunted fish theory...not that it does not exist, but it is an overused excuse.  Just reducing the limit does not help...you need to add the slot with it.  Or just use the slot, which is somewhat self-limiting in what you can keep.  For some, reducing the number you can keep is a psychological boost...they can say we limited out!  With the new northern regulations, I have already seen the impact in increasing size...all fish from 22-26 go back and now I am seeing those small northerns get some bulk (it is not because they are stunted and people are keeping all the northerns under 22" to thin them).  I don't think that "educating" people is effective; if you care, you already know.  It needs to be legislated.

      A canoe requires a “J” stroke (to compensate for paddling on one side) whereas a kayak has a balanced left and right stroke that better aids in tracking and balance. Canoe paddles are heavy. Kayak paddles are ergonomic and light! Source: https://canoesurfer.net/buying-canoe-vs-kayak AND What is the difference between canoeing and kayaking?

      You might not find much opposition on forums cuz the people that use them are learners.  This is our life and we’ve paid attention to what goes on out on the water/ice.  We’ve had our times when we’ve realized what our own actions have meant and make efforts to be better sportsmen and conservationists.  If all of us here kept every legal fish we catch up to our limit, we’d be WAY over on possession - who can eat that much fish?  We don’t view a freezer full of fillets as food security, we view a lake full of swimming fillets as food security and fun security.  Making a smaller withdrawal from the lake here and there is better than living on a couple jackpots per year when one really lands on em.   That statement might sound arrogant but I believe it to be true.

      Smurf, when I was out there the highest concentration of pike effort was happening near the Bible camp on the northeast part of the lake.  Couldn’t tell ya how they were doing though.
    • Paul Waldowski
      I have not seen or heard much on folks chasing Pike.  Everyone has been concentrating on Crappies and a few Tullies
    • HoleHoppingGills
      My thought and by the way I'm a huge gill and crappies guy. Id like to see all MN lakes with a regulation that 9 or 9. 5 inch go back ASAP on crappie!!. Been seeing a lot of.lakes destroyed by fishermen taking limits of small fish. Use to fish a small.lake near Tonka few times a year and always did well on quality panfish... I went there few years later like I always did in the spring off a dock to catch spawning crappies. Lake has no access,  anyways some guys were fishing and had there kids to obviously use them for fish limits, Watched this guy pull in a 5 inch crappie, turns around lifts up a metal basket out of the water. This basket maxed out and completely full.of 5 to 7 inch crappies.  About 6 in the party kept EVERYTHING. Tried it few times that winter which I normally did back then.... no fish population at all.  Just my thoughts sorry so long lol
    • HoleHoppingGills
      Member only ...looking for some reports near Wright county area or even west and north of there.  Been fishing this small lake out near South Haven and been crushing 9.5 inch gills  and 12 inch crappies the last 2 months.  Went back last week after take a 2 week break and everything was suspended and tiny. Before everything was just off weeds deep and coming from botto....not sure what happened  but fish were loaded like a xmas on the flx28, maybe oxygen levels? First pic of the crappies took me and friend 1 hour and 20 holes... so much fun!!!!
    • FiftyFifty
      Jasopete, Thanks so much for the information!  One more thing I just thought of---is there any cell service in this rather remote location?  I'll be sure to check back in here and let you know how we did.

      Zucker gone & Big Bad Bruce, shoot,,,adios amigo. 😳 Our professional hockey organization is truly Wild!    Hopefully there's an interesting & entertaining playoff run. Good thing half the NHL makes the post season. Late spring hockey games that really matter totally rock. Let's Go Wild!!!
