I'm going to give Circle a try. On a map it looks pretty straight forward.

Mossy, do you like pushing your boat off the trailer and winching it back on? If you go to gorman thats what your gonna have to do. Was there last night and it didn't matter how far you back in, I couldn't get the trailer wheels submerged. I heard scotch is the same way but have not had the ambition to try.

On the plus side I guess I did rinse out the exhaust on the truck!

I'll say it; bed. Heading to the N end sand on Mille Lacs from my parent's house ~4:30 am.

Good luck to all!

Guppie, it doesn't bother me to push the boat of or to winch it on. I only have a little 14fter with a 9.9 motor on it, so it is light. I have been to Gorman hundreds of times and have had to do it everytime. Thanks for the heads up though.

I had hoped to be on Lura, but everyone I have talked to wants to "sleep".

I might do the same if I don't get any takers. Not much fun fishing alone.

My fishing and hunting partner I could count on moved to Florida!!!

At least now I've been having thoughts of gator hunting...

I'll have to say bed too. I'm working a 16hr shift on Friday and another 8 on Saturday morning. A disadvantage of working rotating shifts/days off. Sunday's for momma so I'll probably hit the lakes Monday and Tuesday. One advantage of working rotating days off. grin.gif

I'll be in bed also, someone always wants to look at homes that day for some reason, so work for me in the morning, hopefully by mid-afternoon will be a go for a bit.

They should just designate "Opener" as a State Holiday, just as x-mas, easter etc... Shut everything down... grin.gif

      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.
