Bald Eagle & White Bear

I'm heading out tomorrow early and need to stay close to home as I don't have a lot of time. Wonder how the bite is for the eyes on either lake. Not sure which one to hit.

Didn't make it to either last week. Looking at going either tonight or Sunday. Any word on either of these lakes?

Hey there,

Being muskie opener, both will be packed this weekend. I'd recommend looking elsewhere. Metro 'eyes are not easy, and you won't hear much for reports, tight lipped subject! Close to where you're asking......maybe try Turtle in Shoreview? Or the St Croix.

How about Gervious? Has anyone tried that. Not too picky on what I catch. I just wanna stay close to home for tonight and possibly Sunday since they are talking rain.

I was out there last weekend and caught 4 walleye. Look for the 3 buoys off that point and just fish by them in 15 FOW

      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.

      Sometimes them fish on the bottom are bass, suckers, or carp
