headwaters on main street in ortonville has ok burgers it all depends on whos working

milbank as the lantern inn i am not sure on the food it has been a while since i have been there.also there is a pretty new sports bar just as you come into town on hwy12. the 2 times i ate there the food was good only ate burgers

if you want to drive a little ways on the sd side of the lake there are 2 supper clubs.shady beach and sodak.sodak is the bettter of the 2 by far and my favorite friday night all you can eat shrimp and on sundays all you can eat ribs.not a big salad bar but the portions are huge.the matador has gone down hill in the last couple of years.

you could always drive to odessa club 7&75 always seems to have good food.but you know how it is you can always get a bad meal every now and agian no matter where you go. good luck

Milbank has decent places. Check out RJ's BBQ in Milbank, it's a neat place and the food is to die for. I know people that drive over an hour on a weekly basis to get some of their good BBQ. Get there early, when the food is gone, they don't make any more for that night!! It's north of Milbank about a mile on Hwy 15.

Shennanigan's opened up this past year and is a great spot to watch sports in a comfortable setting.

The lantern has good food, but is overrated. I would recommend something on the lake as well, the supper clubs are always a good bet.

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
