PINE MOUNTAIN LAKE IN BACKUS, MN

4 posts in this topic

Sorry for the double post; I originally posted in the Brainerd forum but I think this is closer.

Any reports from Pine Mountain in Backus? Also, Woman Lake. We will be up next week fishing for some eyes.

thanks very much

Larry

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota My mother in law has a cabin near there but I have never fished it. I know a member on the site Phred52 who has a place near her's has fished that lake he would be a good person to ask. You will see a posting in the wolves thread in this forum from him. I would try to contact him good luck.

HI KFG!! I wish I could share some timely info with you, Laurasdad. But I was on the lake once, early this summer. If you're looking for something current, I'd suggest you contact Wayne at Godfreys. He's on the local lakes at the very least weekly,(during ice season, it's almost daily). KFG, Have you been up lately? I had intentions of this weekend, just to check the place, but a leaky heater core in the truck changed the plans. I guess I'll survive, 9 weeks, I'm a RETIRED individual. Time to try and catch-up on all the family, hunting and fishing events I've missed.

Hey Phred no I havn't been but I am going this next weekend to help close up the cabin and bring mother in-law home for the year. If weather cooperates I may skip casino sat and stay and fish. Congrats maybe we can meet up and do some hardwater fishing this winter since you will be a man of leisure grin.gif catch ya later.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
