What are you looking for as far as food? Tjuan's obviously is Mexican, Peppercorn is finer dining than GM, GR, Applebees. There are a number of bars that serve food such as 209 (awesome burgers) Keg n Cork, Squirrels 71 bar (8miles north of town) but great food with specials like fish and prime rib. here's a few for ya.

for the drinks, I'd recommend keg n Cork. For the meal and the drinks together, Corner Bar (in Nymore) was a great place to go back in my college days.

Todd,

I would have to second TJuans for Mexican, great chips, 3 kinds of salsa, good margaritas (especially at happy hour prices) really good food at good prices, great rice! Peppercorn will cost you a few sheckles but well worth it, try a spicy bloody mary, yum! I would heartily recommend their Northern Spiced Steak with a side order of diver scallops wrapped in spiced bacon, as Borat says...VERY NICE! Tutto Bene is Italian, great atmosphere, very upscale, prices are really good for what you see, food is just so-so for me, not seasoned enough for good Italian but I am from Chicago which is the Italian food capitol of the US (ok maybe tied with New York) but I have heard that Minnesota folks like their food spiced very mild and not too wild. Green Mill is ok food, decent prices and a great view, sit outside by the lake if weather permits. Ground Round is good with fair pricing. Note: If you go to TJuans be sure to have good directions, kind of off the beaten path. Good Eating!

Anyone been to the "Hungry Bear" yet? I've heard both good and bad.

Hungry Bear is very expensive for the quality of food you get. It is the same exact food you would get at the Marketplace Deli, but at like twice the price.

I have heard the same over priced and not so great taste, from as source reliable to me that I passed on going there the other day.

Who knows Hungry Bear may improve after the newness wears off and community feed back.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
