Invite to first ever FM get together this year at Appeldoorn's

Recommended Posts

The Cranker

Hello FM memebers,

We are having a first ever Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay midweek fishing get together. Its going to be Feb 7th and 8th 2007.

We thought it would be a great way for FM members to meet and have a good time fishing and of course share some fish stories!

We are offering a two day fish house or cabin rental at 50% off. Basically, you will get two days and two nights for the price of one day and one night!

Bring your portables and snowmobiles or four wheelers. We'll have some Wilcrafts up here for you to check out too! You'll have to experience these machines. We'll spread out and hit the big pond and hopefully have some awesome stories to share at the end of the day! Along with some fish to eat.

Depending on the size of the response will determine what we will do for a big fish fry the second night on the 8th. Along with the door prizes and I'm sure allot of fish tales!

We would be looking for a additional $20.00 for the fish fry and door prizes and gratuity towards our ice crew. We will be having the fish fry at Hunters Point. The fish we catch and potatoes and salad bar and one drink ticket.

If your looking for a real deal you could come up for the FM get together, and stay throughout the weekend! Check our website or call us about the event and the weekend package. Our website banner is at the top of the page for further details.

I hope you are able to plan on coming up and joining in on the fun. I look forward to meeting all of you there.

Fish On!!!

End of the Line

I might be able to swing that. But I would be coming in my wheel house if I come. Have to see when it gets closer because I'll have to bring my 2 small boys.

Glad to see there are some that will be able or maybe be able to make this event. We should have a good time and with Cranker being on the ice daily, we should be good to go if the fish are going.

It will be nice if we can get a nice group going. Its always fun to spend a couple days on the lake and also meeting new FMers.

No problem with the boys being along. Its always a rush to see the younger ones catching fish. cool.gif

It sounds like my dad and I will be heading up there for this event. It will be a great way for us to meet some of the others that use this great website. The reports are very helpful. We'll be bringing up the wheelers and the portables to do some scouting. Should be a great time. If you're planning to go you and need a cabin better get on it though. Just called up there and they only have a few cabins left. See you there.

You are correct. I would call if you need a cabin or a house on the lake before they are full. You dont want to miss out and also have a chance to check out the new Wilcrafts.

Ice Leaders events every weekend. Jamison, you can still come and then go to Winni. These events are a very good time and Cranker has it well set up. cool.gif

Also, the fish should co operate a little better than the weekends with less traffic on the lake.

Looking to set my schedule up to make this event. I won't be able to make it up there until Wed night and then would fish thru the day on Thurs. My perm isn't too far from Appledoorn's so it shouldn't be a prob. I will post when I know for sure

Jamison, Not to get off of the topic but I was just on your website and was wondering how you like using the Ice Buster bobbers? I'm heading up to Mille Lacs next week and I'm thinking on trying them out. Thanks.

      I have a couple Garmins and I like them a lot, especially the new touchscreen.
    • smurfy
      So any idea how far along the lakes are to opening up. Headed that way first weekend of May.

      Volk, a community prevention specialist for the state Department of Human Services and also a member of the Lincoln city council, asked to put to rest a rumor that he snagged the fish. He hooked the fish in the mouth, he said, and it wrapped itself in line as it fought. The mouth hook was certified by Game and Fish, Volk said. A snagged fish would not count as a record.
    • eyeguy 54
      where are these videos? Game and fish said not snagged. hmmmm.

      Cube the breast meat, and marinate it in buttermilk overnight, then dredge it in whatever you use to fry fish, and pan fry it until golden brown.  I like to use peanut oil, because you can get it really hot. You only need a half inch or so of oil in the pan, they fry up quickly. Very good, and I have tried it many ways. You could trim out the dark meat, and do it the same way.
    • huntnfish
      Definitely a huge fish. I don’t know if it was snagged or not but there are a couple videos that look like a hook being removed from the back of the fish. Kind of tough to tell for sure from the videos though. If you go to the ND game and fish Facebook page you can find them.

      Warm temperatures and dry conditions mean increased wildfire risk, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict open burning in the following counties effective immediately: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Douglas, Grant, Hennepin, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Pope, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Stevens, Todd, Traverse, Washington, and Wright.  The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste in these counties until restrictions are lifted. “Escaped debris burns are the number one cause of wildfires, so that’s why we issue these restrictions,” said Casey McCoy, DNR fire prevention supervisor. “They really work—we’ve reduced wildfires by nearly a third since we started spring burning restrictions in 2001.” McCoy encourages residents to use alternatives to burning, such as composting, chipping, or taking brush to a collection site. For information on how to compost yard debris, visit the DNR’s guide to composting yard debris. People who burn debris will be held financially responsible if their fire escapes and burns other property. Burning restrictions will be adjusted, including extension of restrictions to additional counties, as conditions change. For information and daily updates on current fire risk and open burning restrictions, visit the Minnesota DNR website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Flying a drone can be a lot of fun—but it can be downright dangerous during a wildfire, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car in front of a fire engine that’s responding to a fire,” said Casey McCoy, the DNR’s fire prevention supervisor. “Flying your drone during a wildfire is just as reckless: we have to ground our planes until the drone gets out of the way, and that slows down our ability to fight the fire.” This happened last year during a wildfire in Little Falls: DNR pilots had to land firefighting helicopters because a drone was buzzing overhead. According to McCoy, “interfering with fire operations in this way is dangerous for our aircraft, firefighters on the ground, and the general public.” The reason drones pose such a problem is because they fly at roughly the same altitude as wildfire suppression aircraft. Even a small drone can cause a fire-fighting helicopter to crash if the drone makes contact with the aircraft. Flying a drone over a wildfire isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal: Federal law prohibits interfering with firefighting operations, and that includes flying a drone over a wildfire. To protect firefighting aircraft, temporary flight restrictions may extend over a 5-mile radius of a wildfire. Even if temporary flight restrictions are not in place, people will be penalized if their drone is caught near a wildfire. Be fire wise and fire safe. No photo or video is worth the risk. Drop the drone near all wildfires. For more information about drones and wildfires, log onto the National Interagency Fire Center. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
