I haven't been in years and I don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

The problem for me is that it gets pretty expensive to get in and then to buy the food I want. I'd rather spend that money else where.

Besides it seems like if you've gone once there isn't a point in going back since its pretty much the same thing year after year with nothing really new to check out.

Head into the livestock areas where the 4-H kids are, and look for the goats. My daughter is showing hers at 8:00 on Friday morning - if it works out, we hope to be there to watch. Look for the Lyon County kids.

Oh the stuff might be the same, but the people watching is better and better every year! That is the reason we go, and of course to make complete pigs of ourselves on food that has no right to exist outside of the fairgrounds.

We'll be going some night during the week, and possibly on this Sat. morning for Saturday Morning SportsTalk. Gotta love the babywalk, especially with a participant ourselves!

BK- Camping there would probably be a blast. I read a Startribune article a few years ago about campers and they all seemed like great folks. I'm sure there's plenty of campfire fun at night too.

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!

    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
