Thank you for posting. I always think about stopping to read these for some entertainment. About what I expected!

We stopped and read them once.  I know of another person around here that just can’t seem to find peace.

Bummer for them.

Maybe if they would just deliver his mail... all would be good in the world.  ;)

It sounds as though they have bigger issues than just mail delivery. "Trespassing could result in injury" the mail person is reading this and they are thinking they don't pay me enough to do this delivery.

I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together.

Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

I have a cabin on a lake just outside of Cotton, there’s many good fishing lakes in the area, especially the one I’m on. I won’t say the name because I don’t want it bombarded. This fall it was routine catching 40-50 11”-13” crappies every afternoon. Would only keep a few for a meal, but talk about fun. As for the El Toro, it’s the typical “dive” bar and I don’t mean that as a negative at all, real people that if you needed something they’re more than willing to help. Food is from Wilbert cafe in the same building and is good home cooked eats.

All I know about Cotton is playing basketball on that tiny floor. We used to simulate games on a shorten floor and anyone who turned the ball over due to a mistake on boundaries ran laps...  No matter how much better your team was the games were always close.  The fans were hilarious also.  They never intervened but didn't get out of the way either.

I might know what lake your on Snook...A couple years ago I just pounded the 12-14" slabs in the pouring rain... Haven't been able to find them on the ice like that since.

    • Rick
      Mike89 is spot on. Explore that river. Walleyes and cats can be had.
    • Knowknot
      I have to agree with Mike89, lots of good spots to try.
    • eyeguy 54

      lots of river fishing, try where the Minnesota and Blue Earth come together.  go to the park down there and enjoy!!!
    • roony
      Shore fishing can be limited. Personally I would go to the fish hatchery on Lake Tetonka. There is a spot there that produces pretty well at times.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.
