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!

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
