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.

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      I know there's no perfect boat for all rivers and lakes.  But, I've had aluminum jonboats for 60-years with no problems, so far.   My question is....  what type of aluminum boat do you like for most MN lakes?     I like  a 1648 boat, but undecided on the bow type....  Flat bottom, modified. V,  or Deep V?   What do you like?     Thanks for your help.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
