Looks like the middle of winter. Don't think the mushrooms are up yet! Ten Mile is within 20 miles or so of our cabin (Longville).

Thank you Trashguy! I love the web cam. I have been checking it regularly over the past week watching the snow melt. I am going to be up on Woman Lake next weekend with 20 college friends and was concerned that we wouldn't be able to play horseshoes because of the snow! It's great to see that it's gone! Now I will be watching to see when the ice goes out!

TRASHGUY,

Is that web cam actually Ten Mile Lake, or is it the lake that your cabin is on in Longville? Just Curious. If it is your lake, please let me know what lake that is. We have a place close to Longville on Hand Lake and plan to go up fishing next weekend.

Thanks for posting this..

As of this morning the conditions on Woman Lake are as follows:

The ice has begun to pull away from shore and the lake ice has turned to a dark blue/green. This usually means ice out is within a couple/few days. It's close!

Trashguy,

I love the Ten Mile Lake Webcam. I have followed it on a daily basis as I anticipate the end of this years ice. It is also a vicarious thrill for me as we used to have a place on Ten Mile before we moved over to Leech Lake. Ten Mile is a beautiful lake. I wish there was a way they could knock down the rock bass population.

I also like your FM handle - "Trashguy."

The ice went out on many of the Longville lakes last weekend. The ice on Woman was starting to look like it was on it's way out before the big rains on Saturday and especially Sunday night which I'm sure really hit the remaining ice hard. The DNR walleye stripping station is up & running on Woman which is another sign spring is here!

Just got off the phone with a resort on Pine Point, and the lake is clear all the way to Portage Bay, and that ice is going fast. There have been several boats out this morning going north along the shoreline of PP. Dock goes into tomorrow!

Along Hwy 5, just East of the McGuires Inn. (About 11 miles or so from Longville itself. You'll definitely see it.

I will be up there too this weekend to get the cabin up and running.

Friday, 4/27/07

Portage bay was clear of ice as far as I could see. Nice SW wind about 15mph and 72 degrees. Saturday it was beatifull and 75.

Plenty of cormorants still flying overhead.

It should be a good opener.

      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.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

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

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