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!

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
