Yep good Mexican food.

No real Chinese buffets or BBQ that I can think of. Khan's Mongolian BBQ is a mix of both, I suppose. I've never tried it. For family dining, the West 40 is outstanding (and reasonable) for breakfast. I've never had lunch or dinner there. I like the Schwartzwald downtown for German food for dinner. Royal Bar next door has great burgers and sandwiches, but not the best for kids.

Rocky's pizza has great pizza and is a good place for kids. The aforementioned Companero's is also great for Mexican. Go early on weekends because the lines are long.

<lol> Thanks Scott. Love the Royal's burgers. (Just the wife and me, so being a bar is OK...) Used to go to the DIXIE drive in for their burgers/malts(mmmmmmmmmm), but they aren't there any more (I hear).

Will just have to "fish around" for some good places to eat. Any Chinese buffets and/or BBQ in Menahga, Nevis, Akeley, Walker, surrounding townw/etc?

two chinese buffets and one chinese restaurant in DL. One chinese restaurant in Walker (the WOK-er) and one chinese buffet in Wadena. There is also a BBQ joint in DL, Ordinary Joes, open Th-Sat.

If you want a really good breakfast go to the Rapid River Logging Camp north of Park Rapids. Their dinners are also very good. For pizza try Rocky's at the intersection of 71, and 34.

Breakfast at the logging camp....after that all you want to do is take a nap.

My favorite was the Dorset Cafe, great chicken, nice little salad bar and draft beer came in icy mugs.

But I haven't been there in a while.

For pizza we used to go to Rocky's and a little place in Nevis, called, Steve & Jills Steak and Pizza. grin.gifwink.gifcool.gif

Companero's is always my favorite spot to hit...good Mexican food and good margaritas are tough to beat...

Rocky's and Zorbaz both have good pizza...Zorbaz is one of my favorite late night hangouts if you are looking to drink

Since guys are telling you to go to DL I'll say just head to the Toad Lake Store and get a burger. Taco tuesday is good as well. Nice people good food and cold drinks. Also the Y steakhouse is a nice place with excellent steaks. Little pricey but it's good food.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
