Cranker,

Thanks for the great day on the ice today. Alex thinks you're a "pretty cool dude". I will post pics as soon as I get a chance. I will call you this weekend to hook up and pay off my "DEBT" laugh.gif

Tom,

We thank you for all the nice things you say and do for us here at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort. FM has been a great organization to work with. From Rick, Deitzer to you Tom and PW(Paul Waldowski) and all FM people that have come to Appeldoorn's this winter, its been our pleasure to have you come and stay with us!

Chuck, Marylin,Brian and Amy,Justin, Jon and myself very much appreciate all the nice things said on this site about us, and hope that we can continue our new relationships with all of you not only in the winter months but also through out the year.

I want all the FM people to know that you all have been exactley the type of clientel that any resort would want! You are all very kind people, and we very much appreciate you.

As for myself, I wouldn't have dreamed how this site would have changed my life so much. I really have a passion for fishing and hunting. I love this lake and really am fortunate to be able to wakeup and fall asleep everyday along this beautiful lake at this beautiful resort. It truely is a dream come true for me personally.

Now, I am able to share the Mille Lacs Lake events with all of you. Its been a lot of fun and am embarrassed at how many of you FM'ers have sort of made "The Cranker" someone that you want a picture or autograph from. I am truely blessed by the Appeldoorn's for giving me this opportunity at their resort, and to Fishingminnesota.com for bringing me on board, and for all of you FM'ers that have welcomed me into your fishing lives.

Its been just great! Thank you to everyone!!!

Fish On!!!

Cranker: Did not get the oppurtunity to meet you this year, however I truly enjoyed and read every one of your postings. Your information was down to earth, concise and right to the point, and I do not recall one post where anything was said negativley regarding any other operation on the lake. Hope to meet you in the future. Thanks again, for this winter season info. Bill

Cranker is that really you.

I was at your resort last year,labor day weekend with my wife two kids and nine other friends...we all LOVED the resort and the friendly people especially you... well i think it was you.I was looking at your park models when I met a bigger guy smirk.gif dark hair, I believe he was driving a white lincoln and he had something to do with the park models on the southwest corner of the lake.Anyway he was one of the nicest guys I have ever met and had a ton of knowledge on (Contact Us Please) fishing and alot of helpful information, all for a guy he had never met before. You are really a stand up guy.

I hope to see you this Friday I will be stopping by to pick up more business cards, I am working on a group of about 20+ people to stay at your resort Memorial Day weekend.Stop by, say hi,have a drink or even go fishing with us... I need to pick your brain somemore. smirk.gif

I still have the same truck and boat (red silverado red pro-v 2025 le )

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
