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.

      Would any of you know if this location will be open this weekend? I'm just looking to explore the creek and really want to just get in a creek/river with my waders
    • rschmidty
      I was just thinking about this the last couple of days. Can't wait for our 4/15 trip. I've been tracking ice out in Baudette since we've been going up. Here are the past 9 years.      My guess is it will be closer to that 3/24 date for ice out in Baudette which would put ice out at Birchdale maybe a week sooner.

      That's one of the spots I've fished. My buddy lost 3 airplane jigs there before he looked down the hole and saw a standing power pole.🙄

      Welcome to FM @svingla.   Let us know how you do please. Pics are awesome!   Have fun buddy.   You might want to follow the two guys above so you can see the outstanding fishing info they share easily.   Just click their name and then this icon:

      If you are set with Middle Spunk I'd jig for sunnies/crappies (or chase northerns).   Middle Spunk is heavily developed.  I avoid it for that reason but if you're going to be there anyways, you could certainly find worse lakes.  (my two cents are there are too many tubers/wake boarders in the summer which probably means winter is the better time to fish it...)   All three spunks can pretty good for fishing but all have heavy fishing pressure...  They all three are pretty much panfish/northern lakes.  (That usually means fishing can be boom or bust.) Upper (or Big) Spunk (which is actually the lower of the lakes looking at a map...) has the most interesting structure in it (humps, big bulrush island, etc... and a couple of pretty neat little bays in the summer) I personally prefer lower spunk.--probably half of the lake is undeveloped bulrushes.

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      Decent panfish lake. They would be my target kicks out some sporadic bites all year. Not much for a walleye lake they get stocked quite often but for some reason never take off. Don't rule out chaseing  Tullibbees. Every winter she gives some up. Piles of deep water out there she can be a tough one. I personally prefer Upper  easier to break down compared to Middle good luck!

      Heading up to Avon to fish Middle Spunk lake this weekend. Looking for any advice or insights for fishing this lake and what to target.
