Weetown burnt down.

Recommended Posts

Biggestfish

It is a sad day in Otter Tail County. One of the most famous landmarks in Otter Tail County was lost early this morning when fire gutted the Pantry and Pub in Weetown. Thank God that no on was hurt. I will miss Thursday night buck burger, The meeting spot for the days snowmoblie ride, The Noon burgers I would run down and get when I was working around the yard, and last but not least the the great people. I have heard no word on Owner' plans on what they will do from here. I wish them the best of luck.

That is terrible news. It was one of my favorite pitstops when riding the sleds up to D.L.

I didn't even get a chance to check that place out yet! Too busy moving and getting settled in, and she burns. Bummer.
I did hear that the owners are going to re-build. I hope they do, it looks like a great location, and even better if they build a new establishment! Change for the better?

I only got there a couple times that I remember but I can relate to the loss. Anyone here ever hang out at spruce grove between frazee and detroit lakes in their wild youth?
It was a sad day when that one went also, many of our parents probably met there, carved their names into the booth or table. It was alot of fun..... Paul

Hey Biggestfish!

Just a note to let you know I'll be camping at my place on Heilberger Friday & Saturday attempting to do some mowing/cleanup. I'll be back the first weekend in August with my wife & girls. Stop by if you see me around.

I'm sure going to miss my WeeTown "snack" breaks! Any word on a possible re-build?

I will be unable to make it over this weekend, we have other plans... I hope you have your mower blade sharpe..HA HA. I should be able to catch you that 1st weekend in Aug.

Weetown update. Thursday they knocked down the burned out shell that was left after the fire. The last I heard on the rebuild was about 3 weeks ago when I ran in to the owners at Target... They said they had one more meeting with the insurance adjuster and would base their plans on that meeting, since then I have not heard anything. I have heard a lot of rumors, but nothing for sure... I do hope they rebuild.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.
