Milk Crates?

11 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can get some of those plastic Milk Crates in the Twin Cities area? Been looking and cannot find any retailers that sell them.

Want to use one for strapping Ice Rods to and tackle storage for my one man flip over. Plan is to bungee cord the crate to the seat as I pull the flip over across the Ice, and then be able to easily remove it when I'm fishing and to bring my stuff into the house after done fishing

I was at the huge thrift store in Sun Ray Center off of 94 in Oakdale last week and they had 2 real milk crates.

Thanks, I do know where that Mall in the Sunray Shopping Center is, but a little to far to drive. Will check out Manards and see what they have.

I was at a major grocery store and the milk guy was doing a delivery and I stopped him and asked him for 1 and he gave me 2 of them

I work at a major retailer and see piles and piles of milk crates on a daily basis. I always laugh at the writing on these things. They all say return to owner...Felony if stolen, yada yada yada. Yet, if you look at them, they're all from different companies. So Kemps may have crates from 50 diffenent distributers grin

Awesome that you were able to get a few from "the source" smile

The Menards Crates are a little longer then the ones from the milk companies, they will still hold a 20# with a little room left over.

You can sometimes find abandoned crates behind restaurants and grocery stores. These are not the ones by the loading dock! In college I seemed to have more crates than actual furniture. I think I only have one or two left...... 15 years of garage sales tend to weed out the crates.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
