swap%20meet%20forum.jpg

Mark this one down in the calender!

We still have room for more members that would like to sell their Sporting Goods/Outdoor gear. No baby clothes, no kids clothes, no household goods. Only Outdoor Gear!

Grand Superior Lodge is supplying brauts and hamburgers(thank you Cheffery) and will be cooked and served by our Cub Scout Pack 107 along with chips and pop.

What we clear over the cost of renting the hall will be split up between the Cub Scout Pack and a future FM Get Together prize fund!

Those that would like to have a spot to SELL email me frankbdeluca@yahoo.com with your forum name and phone number before we're all filled up. Cost to sell is $5.00

Beautiful job on the flyer. Wish this was a little closer to my home with all the fishing stuff I've got to sell. 466 miles is just a tad to far for me to drive. Sounds like this is going to be very successful. Good luck to all.

hawgeye, you can leave your stuff with me.

Twig is on hwy 53.

6 miles north of Pike lake or approximately 16 miles north of Duluth. Gas station is on the right, Town Hall is on the left. Don't blink or you'll miss both.

ST you made a slight mistake, I think it's 5-6 miles north of Pike lake (fishermans corner) on hwy. 53. I know for a fact that it's not 53.6

-- never mind I saw the period and thought it was a decimal point, sorry ---

There is actually a surcharge of 17.5% for FM members since I have to make up for sponsoring cost, but it can go down a point or two depends on sales.

Juuuuuuuuust kidding of course, bring a copy of thread (not the whole thing, just first page) ad and you'll get a 10% discount on anything.

I am sorry I don't have a canvas for a Starcraft but I do have the boat if interested...... grin.gif

Sorry to be fair doors open at 8AM. I would get there then!

This Swap Meet is something new to the site, we learn as we go. I'd like to keep requests for items or the inventory off the forum. Just show up and you might find that special thing your looking. If not then I'm sure there will something else you'll want to go home with.

Getting closer. Those who plan on selling bring a table if you can. Sounds like we may need some more.

Im still trying to get the boat out of the garage so I can get to some stuff to get rid of.

Cheffrey when ya get back holler at me about the grub. Got a few questions.

We're filling up. laugh.gif Once we do we'll start selling in the parking lot. So we still might have room inside but can't guaranty it. If you have a table or trailer to sell from bring it.

I would love to participate guys, but why'd you pick Easter weekend? Hopefully you do it again soon.

Whats wrong with Easter weekend? It just happened that the hall was available this weekend. No matter what weekend we chose there would be someone who didnt like it. Its not like its on Easter Sunday or anything.

I understand some people may be out of town.

This will more than likely become a anual deal and we will try to get the hall for another weekend if possible.

I think Easter Saturday is great, lots of people will be in town as well so it should be a good turnout. Northlander, with Cheffery in Mexico do we have any idea how much food we would like? That way I can get an idea.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
