When Cyn and I where up in Northern Minnesota this last weekend taking in some sites and hanging out with friends, we spent a few hours at the International Eelpout Festival in Walker, Mn. This has been the tradition for several years now. Eelpout are very ugly fish, but not half-bad tasting. I usually get a serving of pout nuggets. You can follow that up with cheese curds, mini doughnuts, or any number of other fair-like foods.
There are some constants, but every year you see something a little different from the year before. The people watching if phenomenal. The consumption was staggering; I can’t even imagine the volume consumed over that weekend. Hangovers for many no doubt.
There are several photo’s on-line of this huge event in Northern Minnesota. Here are the few snapshots I grabbed while we were there.
