They are doing repairs to the dam. It seems that there was a hole in the wall. If they didn't fix it they thought it might blow.

Just head up highway 169 north, I'ts about 5-6 miles out of town but be sure to go on the right hand side of the road not the left, the right side has the river and the left side has the creek. You cant miss the green info signs, you may want to also try the LeSueur river south of town. BT

45 degrees surface temp is about right for when Walleyes put on the feed bag for winter.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
