Paul,

I will be up early Friday morning and I have choosen to go out of Appledoorn's as this will be my first time out of there. I am planning on heading out to three mile, to start the day off and am planning on moving around until I find the fish so I will be using a four wheeler and was wondering if there is a box to pay at ealry in the morning or if there will be someone there to collect my money at 5:30 am and is there a spot to park by suburban and trailer down on the ice as I do not feel comfertable tooling all over the lake with the suburban with the way the weather has been.

Paul, I'm looking to book a trip up there for my girlfriend and I to fish for a few days and hopefully stay in a shack. Thinking it would be a good Valentines Day present for her that would benefit me also. Would like to talk about what packages you have available or what may be the best fit for us. Is there a number I can contact you at as I've heard from a good friend that you will set me up great, thanks.

Huge51,

Not a problem. Parking and taking a wheeler or sled is $5 a day.

Hey Paul,

Do you have an updated map of your roads?

We are coming up today, and plan to go out of your resort.

Chex,

Nothing there, try [email protected]

Still haven't heard back from you yet. I've tried every route to contact you frown. If you cannot provide lodging for us please let me know so I can look elsewhere this weekend while there is still some time left.

Thanks for the help and reply, Paul, but I called the office and was told that there was nothing for my group for the weekend of 18th-19th because every house is booked for Sunday afternoon check-in. Kind of strange because the online availability shows multiple 8hole deluxe still available. Hopefully maybe next year.

Sorry bout that. When I talked with you early this afternoon I was way out on the lake and totally unaware that a gentlemen had booked the last three eight hole deluxe's early this a.m. Our website updates once each morning which is why there were still showing as open.

Just a shout-out to Paul. He hooked us up with a very nice road out to the mud, good fresh bait, and a rental flasher (I forgot mine at home). He even patched up the road with a bridge while we were out there!

Thanks Paul, without service like yours, today could have been a very bad day of fishing.

Thinking about out a day trip tomorrow through you. Just wondering how safe it would be for a 3/4 ton diesel to head out through your access? Anyone know how early a bait store is open out there? This would be my first on this lake... Thanks for the help.

I'm thinking about heading up either Tuesday or Wednesday for a few days for a little birthday present. Do you guys do any last minute mid-week specials? How are the ice roads?

You'll be up during the Perch Extravaganza. Purchase a button to get in on the action.

      Checked three different weather sites on line. One said 1" and the other two said 1"-3" Hope it's what I found.
    • Borch
      Sounds like we're for another 6-10" based on the weather report. 
    • popriveter
      Thanks for the info. I am surprised at how different the ice is on different lakes right now. Looks like it will stay sketchy through this weekend, but a good deep freeze next week should even it out a lot. The forecast calls for negative temps M-W.  
    • Rick
      Well done Bryan!

      Only one sack lunch?  tsk tsk...  I would challenge you to improve that! Frankly, my deershack looks like a buffet by the time I'm done--This year I had one thermos with soup, one with hot tea, 2 sodas, sandwich, apples, smoked whitefish, gobstoppers, crackers, sausage and baked pumpkin seeds (from the kids jack-o-lanterns).   (I think the deer that I get are probably wandering in, just wondering what smells so good!  😂  Conservation officer can't get me for "feeding" deer 'cuz the food I pile up is all in my stand...)   Part of the reason the kids like to sit in the stand with me is to eat dad's goodies!😁 Speaking of junkyard, there's a "stand" leading up to where I hunt that the dude put the front of a old dump truck cab on stilts.  Classy!  I seriously would've loved to see Red Green do an episode based on your idea!

      Donkeyhodey - I've always thought of going to a junk yard, grabbing a vehicle seat that is heated. put that in my nice stand and hook it up to a deep cycle battery. After a few hours, turn it on and relax on a heated swiveling reclining deer stand seat with arm rests. I'd probably wake up at 8 PM wondering what darn day it was.  Bigfatbert, -  that is my plan moving forward. Blinds in the sky. my only concern is their durability over time with inclement weather. How do you prepare for a early season heavy snow or high wind?  
    • A.Wichman
      It's LED, no heat coming off of them. 
    • leech~~
      Simple. 😉
    • Getanet
      Does it get hot?  Just curious if it would cause any problems if it was touching the shell of a portable.    I have the Clam hub light and like it, but it's pricey for a light, and I'm always worried the cord will get ripped out of it.
