Week after Labor day...

10 posts in this topic

My extended family and In-laws are going up to Dead Lake for a long weekend of Sept 8/9/10/11 and I was wondering of there are any towns having their festivals then. Does Battle Lake still have their Flea Market after Labor Day? Just thought the ladies would like to get out for a bit (and we can get on the lake!!!) Thanks!

Dalton should be having their festival that weekend. Very cool with all the old steam engines and tractors.

Sorry, but the BL flea market is no more. They are going to be breaking ground on a new assisted living facility there. I have seen signs that there is a flea market in Vining, but I don't know if be after Labor Day.

As far as I know, Detriot Lakes has a Flea Market every Sunday (right on hwy 59)?

I was in the area last weekend 11th & 12th, Battle Lake had a huge craft show as we drove through town on saturday, so I think you may have dodged the bullet and saved some money there!! Ottertail also had the Otterfest last weekend too, so those two towns are probably done celebrating for the year!! Good Luck

Thanks for the responses, and these ladies getting squirrelly around the cabin isn't worth saving a little money. grin.gif If nothing else, there's always an evening of fine dining and dancing at the Triple Play!

I think that Flea market moved to Vinning. I heard it isn't in Battle lake anymore. I will be on East Battle the week of Labor day. Ever fish that lake? Should I pull Rapala's?

I fish it all the time, except after Labor Day.

Huntin' season takes precedence once Labor Day rolls around.. grin.gif

Honestly, if you pull Raps or any cranks, you will get more hammer handles than you could ever wish for. Please keep your limits and try some pickled pike or something. Perfect size for pickling, and you will be doing the lake a favor. laugh.gif

You must be talking about the early goose season. I have talked to people, Hard to get a hunting spot unless you hunt water.

Good luck.

I forgot all about the Testicle Festival; I can only hope that it will fall on that weekend! I've never attended, but heard great things about it, maybe this will be the year. Thanks!

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
