10 posts in this topic

Come on Windy...................why won't you stop in? Have you even seen the new place since we gutted it over a year and a half ago? We have a $25 all you can drink (domestic beer and well drinks) and buffet during all Bears games. We will probably miss the 1st game due to a Mille Lacs trip with Illinois Outdoors........if the fish are hittin, we're stayin longer. If it's dead, we'll be back at Stoney Point for the game.

Commanche,

It's nothing against you or the place. We had a great time the last time we were there. We are just not the party type too much anymore. The grand kids keep us running pretty good and my wife does not like the smokey atmosphere of most places. That may have changed for you with the new law, not sure, if it has please let me know and I will try to get her in again. We don't do the huge drink fest Bears game thing anymore, used to but not anymore. I usually watch the game by myself in the recliner in front of my big screen. When we go out to eat we don't like a crowd, usually go for good food with quite atmosphere.

Let me know about the smoke situation because I know that was a factor last time we were in but that was before the remodel and we were sitting right next to the OTB which was full of smokers. We did have a good time and LOVED the food! Have a good time with the Ill Outdoor folks, wish I could come.

Talk to you soon, Windy

Windy,

We remodeled and doubled the size, remember? The OTB is separated by glass doors and the dining area in the back by the fireplace is non-smoking after 6:30 every day. Not to mention, the HVAC system we put in works pretty good at getting any smoke out in the bar area.

We had 4 height chairs out last night around 6:30 for little ones......

It's certainly not chucky cheese, but it is family friendly.

You certainly don't have to party aminal to come in. And we have a heck of a menu.......All you can eat Leinie's Honey Weiss battered walleye fish fry on Friday, or our Friday Crab Stuffed Talapia, the blackened walleye poor boy...........and you can't go wrong with our steaks.

Check out our website and menu.

Nice move Commanche,

While I am all for people's rights and freedom, I think the market should dictate who goes smoke free and who allows smoking. If you don't like smoke go to places that are smoke free and if you like to puff go to smoking places. I guess my conservative roots are showing! I think that is a great move on your part though, Jim.

      Youth ages 12 to 15 can apply to hunt waterfowl under the guidance of experienced mentors on Minnesota Youth Waterfowl Day on Saturday, Sept. 9.  “Helping a kid learn to hunt is a great way to share your skills and show what the outdoors have to offer,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Ducks Unlimited, the U.S. National Wildlife Service, Minnesota Horse & Hunt Club, the Fox Lake Conservation League, the DNR and others have teamed up to offer the hunts, which will take place in four areas:     Southern Twin Cities metro area locations.     Sherburn private land between Fairmont and Windom.     Private land in Fergus Falls.     Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge near Zimmerman and Princeton. Application forms must be received at the DNR central office by Friday, Aug. 18. Applicants will be drawn in a lottery if a hunt is oversubscribed, with preference given to novice hunters. Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible and must attend an orientation on Friday, Sept. 8, in the location for which they were chosen. Applications and more details about the hunt are available online at mndnr.gov/discover and by contacting Kurre at 651-259-5193 or michael.kurre@state.mn.us.

      Youth and families can apply through Monday, Aug. 21, to learn how to hunt pheasants with experienced hunters in October.  “These hunts can be the building blocks for a lifetime of rich experiences in the field,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Find out about equipment and skills you need to have safe and rewarding hunts.” Youth must be 12-17 years old as of the date of their hunt, have earned a firearms safety certificate and possess a small game license if required. Youth must have a parent, guardian or adult authorized by a parent or guardian accompany them as a mentor, without a firearm. The adult must also attend with the youth during the pre-hunt orientation. In the family hunt, all participants can hunt, but they need to be 12 and older, have little to no pheasant hunting experience, and have the appropriate safety certificate, stamp and license. The hunts are provided through Pheasants Forever and the DNR. Applications and more details about the hunt are available online at mndnr.gov/discover by contacting Kurre at 651-259-5193 or michael.kurre@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth can apply to hunt deer in select state parks and other refuge areas during 16 special deer hunts in October and November.  “These special hunts provide the opportunity for parents or other adult mentors to go afield with youth to hunt deer,” said Mike Kurre, Department of Natural Resources mentoring coordinator. “Deer hunting can be an extremely positive experience for youth.” Youth have through Friday, Aug. 18, to apply for the hunts. Of the 16 special hunts, 14 are firearms hunts for youth ages 12 to 15, and two are archery hunts for youth ages 12 to 17. Participation in other deer hunting seasons remains an option for youth who take part in the special youth deer hunts, but any deer harvested count against the youth’s season bag limit. An adult parent, guardian or mentor must accompany the youth at all times while hunting, but only the youth may hunt. Both youth and mentor must attend a mandatory pre-hunt orientation. A limited number of either-sex permits are available for each hunt. However, for the hunts in Buffalo River, Camden and Lake Shetek state parks youth need to harvest an antlerless deer before getting a permit to harvest a buck. Youth must apply for the hunt of his or her choice, which can be done anywhere DNR licenses are sold, at the DNR License Center, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, or online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. For archery hunts, apply with code 630; for firearms hunts, apply with code 631. If the number of applications exceeds the number of permits, the DNR will randomly draw names to choose participants. Youth may apply for one archery hunt and one firearms hunt. Successful applicants also must meet all firearms safety requirements, purchase appropriate licenses and follow hunting regulations. In addition to the 16 application-only hunts in state parks and refuge areas, any youth ages 10 to 15 also can participate in the youth deer season that runs Oct. 19-22, in 27 permit areas that encompass portions of southeastern and northwestern Minnesota and portions of the Twin Cities metro area. More information and a list of hunts and orientations can be found at mndnr.gov/discover. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Much appreciated JBMasterAngler! I saw a couple of your comments on another DevilsTrack lake post, but that was from 2007 so this updated information is AWESOME !! LOL! Thank you! I am looking forward to giving it a go.    I have a bunch of chartreuse  and fire tiger rapalas too. Got a couple that dive to 16 feet, and couple to around 7. Hopefully i can locate a couple eater walleye. thanks again man.

      Beanies is a privately held beach and company. There is no way they would become a free public launch site--unless they sold to the DNR. I know nothing of that happening. However, if you're patient, the DNR is building one under the new HWY 36 bridge with 35 trailer parking spots to be completed in late fall 2019/early spring 2020. Here's the article: http://stillwatergazette.com/2017/03/20/dnr-plans-boat-launch-next-to-st-croix-bridge/. As for fishing, right now with the hot weather and the recent mayfly hatch, it's been a tough bite. Fish drop-offs or channels and try everything.

      Those islands are a good starting point. The mouth of the junco creek  (which is right at the campground) is a popular spot also. Gold is the go to color. Lake is full of cigars, but you should be able to find a few big enough to eat. Shorefishing at the access at night can be productive with leeches, but it's always those pesky cigars again. You might want to take a day and go over to nearby Two Island Lake. Has a much better population of eaters in my opinion.

      Wondering if there are any free campsites in the Ely area, preferably off of fernberg trail or hwy 1 within reasonable distance of town. I know there are a thousand sites on islands or lake shores that are "boat to", but I'm looking for drive to sites. Being on or near a lake would be nice, but I'm not too picky. Just looking to make a trip a little more affordable, as well as getting a chance to explore the area a little better

      Somebody needs to find out where it happened and start throwing some big baits in that area.
