I hope that they had some insurance on the place, so that Cook doesn't end up with a second pile of burned rubble like the thrift store.

I was at least glad to see that the fire didn't take down the country store. That was some incredible lightning on Saturday night

That stinks. I spent a lot of nights there while fishing the westside. Just stayed there last month. Always nice people working there and the rooms were clean. Hope they rebuild.

The rooms right behind the store are still useable. They were in there cleaning them today.

The dollar barn had insurance. They just got the ok to start clean up. Hopefully Tom gets another motel built soon. That place did a lot of business.

I heard they had insurance on the building, not the business at the dollar barn. Is that not true?

The Vermilion motel was nice.

Not sure what the insurance covered.

Talked to Tom and he said he's rebuilding. I think they saved 6 rooms so when that gets cleaned it will be useable. Johnson's One Stop burned on the same site in May 1977. Was a Johnson Lund Skidoo Honda etc dealer.

From what I've heard the dollar barn didn't have enough insurance. Guess it cost $65000 to haul the old building away.

Shortfatguy when are you coming back to work on my deck?

Heard today that he was taking down the units that were saved. Too much smoke damage and will allow more flexibility in the new design. This is 2nd hand so ....

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
