For food go to the ranch steak house the best food in town.

For entertainment if you like Casinos there is Spirit Lake but it is dry no adult drinks there.

For bars my favorite are Webs place up town, Champs End of The Line North of HWY 2 on HWY 20, Night Owl Lounge off HWY 2, and POPS off of HWY 2. Most all of these have black jack and tabs if you like that.

That should give you a few places to go.

For lodging stay at either the Comfort Inn or else the Great American Inn and Suites this is a great place for sportsmans.

Just got back from DL and wow is it big, we fishied mostly on 6 mile bay and did really good for the eyes and the people upstairs rented a guide and only caught 3 perch and he caught 2 of them, so the perch were really slow and that was in creele bay, but we were there during that cold snap so I think you will have better luck than -20 that we had and high of -7, we used buckshot with a minnow head pearch color and did really well, go north of the cabin on the point but well south of the railroad tracks on the east side of the lake, you will see all of our tracks and where we were, they liked the 17 foot better than the 20-25 and did not really like the 15, once you find them put your shacks together and have a blast, all were average size 15-17 but we did get some nice one 5-6 20+, which is nice for us from the dairy state, did hit some perch but really slow and I did catch a 7# northern on my jig, did not put out any tip ups way to (Contact Us Please) cold.....good luck and if I can help you out more let me know

    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds
