I can't remember the name but you can Google the list and search by name. The one you mentioned doesn't ring a bell though. Glad you weren't a victim!!

Yeah going to have to check out Hayslips Corner 1 of these days, brother's been over there. Was just over to Riley's on Tuesday, some meat raffles going on & had pretty good crowd, didn't eat though. Used to go there more but not much since we started going to Squaw Lake. We're only ~ 10 miles from the Spring Lake Store & the little blue guy.

It's days for you & weeks for us, so we don't have to hit the water when it's -40.;) Sometimes we're just looking to get out for a couple hours. Heard that too about the TW, very spendy. Used to eat at Riley's with the mom & dad. From what I've seen, lately, it doesn't look like anyone compares to The Hill, at least for their Cheap Burger Night. Everybody's more $ & not as good IMO

Been there to, on Tuesday, when we went in to GR. As usual good food, quick service, & reasonably priced. Hot beef & hot pork sammies this time

It's unreal how fast the Sportsman can get that food out even when it's packed. You never leave hungry there and it is darn good. I usually have the hot beef. Just ate there last week. The price is reasonable for all you get. The T--Wolf is a bit spendy but really good also, plus it's only three miles from me. And Hayslips, all I can say is it is a very unique place. I always stop for a quick one or three. Have to support the locals. Richeys shut down so I'm down to two places now.

It was hopping years back. Live music on weekends. Snowmobile trail went right through the parking lot so that was always packed on weekends. Had a lot of fun times there.  Had a restaurant back then also. When the Wolf got built that put a huge hit on Richies. Too bad it's locked, would always meet my local buddies up there. Things change as time goes on, some for the better but it's always hard to see places lock up in small towns.

Seen some live music there but never there during the winter, so no sleds. Seem to remember them having a big 4th of July bash going on

The old atmosphere of the hill will be tough to replace the food was always good especially if you wanted more than just a burger. (ie good steak). The Hill was just down the road from my place and I really feel bad for the staff as jobs can be a little tricky to come by up there especially the really good waitresses that just came over from the Gosh Dam    Anybody ever get in on the all you can eat crab at the hill it was awesome! Think it was Monday nights.

Good luck to them all in the future hopefully its sooner than later!

Actually spoke to them  over at our neighbors, that he built, open house this summer & he said they were still fighting with the insurance company. The scuttlebutt we hear, from someone that knows their boy well, is she doesn't want too. Too hard to get the business built back up. It looked to us, before we came home for the holidays, like Jerry was doing the remodel on the old North Star grocery store that Cenex closed this year. Some sort of meat shop rumored to be going in there

Why not use the insurance money to rebuild and get it going then sell it off with the land and Motel if you don't want to run it?  Unless they get to pocket the money and just run the Motel only?  🤔

Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      I'm located in the Cities, but if anyone on the Vermilion forum (or around the metro) has one of those swim platforms that isn't being used, I am in the market.

      I was out of the NE side again and was surprised with the amount of boats out fishing this last weekend.  I agree, the fish are biting and look a little skinny and could be post spawn.  This weekend was the first time that we caught fish out of that 17-20 inch range.  We caught a bunch of 12-14 inch which is good to see.  
    • gunner55
      🤔  Not too many spots with that many rushes here so I've got a good idea where that is.

      One day to go and heading to Crane and Sand Point lake. I heard black flies are real bad...any updates on that. We are targeting Pike this year

      I've been going up to the areas mentioned for 20 plus years now and ended up buying a cabin in the Bovey area. Looking to hear and share some fishing reports about the surrounding lakes. Never keep much besides some pesty northerns and panfish (which are plentiful) for the occasional lunch. So, I highly respect the area, but if you know the area at all, you will never be able to fish all its lakes in a lifetime... so some well informed fishing reports is always welcome. Again, I emphasize "smaller lakes," because the bigger ones (Jessie, Round, Wabana, etc) all have fishing reports available. Post if you're interested and lets get a good conversation going.

      I would agree with the above answers, that the line of rivets are creating dirty water for you.  I would move to the left as well.  Also, I would guess you may need to lower the transducer some as well.  Get the transducer as low as you can without it making a large roostertail at speed.  If you have a good square or quality straight edge at home, place vertically along bottom of the hull, extending out from the stern.  The top of the straight edge should cover at least the bottom 2/3s of the transducer on the inside (motor side), maybe more if the pitch of the hull is greater.  Transducer should also have a slight downwards angle from transom. 2 more things, make sure the transducer is level(left to right) with a small level. Compare the level of the boat to the level of the transducer.  Boats don't always sit level on a trailer obviously. One thing to remember with side imaging is you beam going out towards the motor is often interfered with the outboard itself.  As you trim up the motor, that side will become clearer.

      That's great. I feel the same about mine.😁

      Well I don't have any inside info on a hot bite but have heard it's still a jig and minnow bite on the edge of flats in 7-12 of water.  If the wind is pounding into a flat I would recommend heading shallow and trolling cranks.  This would be a good option to at least find a spot to slow down and jig the edge once you've cover water and find fish.  I've done well on these flats all summer long if the wind is blowing into them.    Good luck!
