I have never gone, but have always wondered about this event.  If it's not happening, I need a rigid tow hitch for an otter sled.  Left mine sitting by a tree on Brighton Beach the last time the big lake froze over.....a few hours later, after I remembered it, it was gone.  Anyone got one?  (I know M.General sells them)

Just someone looking for some good Outdoors gear. Oh and a hot dog and coke!  Plus I may hit the shore for a while after I buy a few goodies. :)

Is it filling up with tables yet?

Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!

Tim now has about 10 guys setting up outside.  Some had too much stuff for a table inside so they moved outside.  So there may still be a table or two available if anyone still wants to get in.  Give Tim a call.  Sounds like it's going to be a monster swap meet.

A nice time was had by all!  Didn't hear any complaints.  The parking lot was full of sellers, as well as the inside.  Thanks to Tim and the cleanup crew for putting in the work to make it a success.  Thanks to the kitchen crew for supplying everyone with pop, coffee and lunch.  Thanks to everyone who helped in any way and to all the sellers and buyers.  It wouldn't happen without your participation.  And thanks to the Fayal Township government for making the facilities available for events like this.  I appreciate all of you.

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.
