Does Appledorn's have its own boat ramp? We are looking at staying there in Mid July. Also, will cabin's 9 or 10 be finished by then and what's the fishing like around Mid July on that side of the lake?

Thanks

Hello Rangerforme,

Thank you for considering Appelddorn's Sunset Bay Resort! We very much appreciate that.

We are really looking at a great year of open water fishing this year! I know there will be some real dandy trophy's caught this year.

With the addition of Steve Fellegy and Tony Roach and the brand new renovated cabins #9 and #10 (the old lodge and cafe)on that beautiful sandy beach the resort is really starting to take shape.

Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort has some really great things that are in the works, that I know that all the FM community will like! So stay tunned to FM for further developments!!!

To answer your question; Appeldoorns does not have a boat ramp. We are working on a portable boat ramp with a couple of different companies at the time. Right now we do launch your boat for you. You will load up your boat and will go ahead and ride in your boat while we launch you with our tractor. When you come in you can either tie up to our dock or call us and we will be ready for you when you come in to load you and your boat back up. It works pretty well.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Fish On!!!

Cranker,

My group will be staying at Appledorn's for opening weekend. 13 guys, 4 cabins, 4 boats. Should be a great time!!!! Counting the days!!!

Question about your last post. So when we check in, we can arrange for the resort to pull us to the launch with the tractor? That would be great...I can launch the boat while my buddies do the hard work of unpacking the truck. hahaha!

All four boats we are bringing are good sized fishing boats, including an 18 foot fiberglass I/O fish and ski.(which is probably the heaviest) With the low water levels, are we going to be able to get these boats launched and be able to dock them at the resort?

Stop by Cabins 1,2,3 or 6 and say hi..If we are not out fishing we will be eating, drinking or gambling...

Hello Muskieguy,

Thank you for making your resevations at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort. It should be a excellent year of fishing!

Now if we can get the weather to cooperate with us a little.

For our guests we will launch your boat and then you will be able to either tie up to the dock (depending on the amount of water and boats) or we will pull you back out.

We look forward to having you stay with us at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort!

Fish On!!!

Assuming there is enough water to float boats near the dock, is it possible there will be too many boats to where not everybody gets a dock spot? Does each cabin get one reserved dock spot?

Slugo,

These are the same tractors that Joe used. We are spiffing them up a little and only launching boats for our guests that are staying here at the resort and for tourney's for now. That could change in the future.

Fish On!!!

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
