Sometimes I crave a taco from the stand on the north side of the DNR building. I always seem to stop there. Get a taco & watch the sturgeon, flatheads & whatever else is swimming in the pond. Of course I always go for the traditional Pronto Pups, Cheese Curds, Mini Donuts, & all the milk you can drink. How much is that now, 50 cents a cup? I think it's just south of the DNR Bldg. I've had catfish & hushpuppies from the food building a few times. Not bad, at least for Fair food. Something different anyway. I haven't had the walleye on a stick yet though. How about the alligator? I tried it the first time they had it, but don't remember what it tasted like. I'll have to try it again out of curiosity. For me, it's all about the food these days! Vern

My favorite food was new last year, Macaroni and cheese on a stick, really. We always have to have a big bucket of those fair fries as well.

Have fun!

Not sure if it is my favorite, but it is something that I have to have every year. Have to stop by Chef John's place and get a Rueben. One of the best sandwiches at the fair.

Apples in a bowl with carmel on top, french fries, gyros, foot long hotdogs, cheese curds fresh squeezed lemonade, saltwater taffy, I guess there isn't much I don't like other than the long lines you have to wait in to buy the food.

Don't miss the Dairy Association's awesome shakes and sundaes in the Empire Commons Building (right next the "butter heads"). If you're heading out on August 25th or 26th be sure to stop by the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance's (OEA) exhibit in the same building and get some lead free sinker samples. Come learn how to keep loons and other wildlife safe from lead poisoning, get a free packet of tin sinkers, and sign up to win a tackle box full of non-lead tackle!

The alligator I had there tasted like chicken saturated in northern(pike) slime for a couple hours... Maybe it was just the peice I had .. it was gristly .. didnt care for it.

Last year I found a great steak sandwich at one of the stands that was covered in peppers and onions .. I'll be looking for them again this year on my way to the fish tank.

Gotta be the curds! Wash'em down with some 3.2 and have some of those Choclate Chips cookies for desert. I of course eat this incredible meal while looking at the fish in the DNR pond.

Green Guy, when are these lead free products going to become available in stores for the same price as lead? Cant find much of it and what I do find is way more than lead. You would think if those making this stuff really wanted it used it would be competitively priced. Maybe its not worth the added headache? Is bismuth etc. that more pricey than lead or is it that there arent many manufacturers?

Footlong Chile dogs - if you can find em, seems like every year they move the one and only booth that sells em.

They should have an all you can drink beer stand for $5 kind of like a house pary. I would have to say a turcky leg or beer. It all seem good.

I'm heading out there right now, can't wait!

Cheese curds, onion rings, drumsticks, malts, etc. I must say the best thing is a bucket of Sweet Martha's cookies together with the .50 milk deal! Then I think I'll go to the DNR fish pond and suffer.

Maybe I'll stop by the PETA booth too and ask for some "Kitten On A Stick" smile.gif

Northlander,

I would say that non-lead fishing tackle is at a similar point to when non-lead bird shot alternatives starting hitting the market several years ago. It will take time for the market to develop and more options to become available. When you have to shell out $6 for a dozen shiners (or $$$ for boats, tow vehicle, etc.), a few more cents for tin shot isn't that big a deal. As time goes by and interest in alternatives grow, I expect more options at a more competitive prices. However, since wholesale bismuth, tin and other alternative metals are more expensive than lead, non-lead tackle will always probably be slightly more expensive.

Currently, Gander Mountain has been carrying an assortment of non-lead weights in their stores, although inventory is getting picked over. For jigs and other lures, the best bet for now is online. The following website lists numerous websites where non-lead tackle can be obtained directly from the manufacturers:
