      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

The spot I would get married at in NE MN is actually part of Cathedral of the Pines Church Camp or whatever it is. Its a fire area along the Superior Hiking Trail just off the Caribou Trail. Its a larger fire/ceremony area along the hiking trail overlooking Caribou Lake. Beautiful if your looking for an outdoor wedding. Maybe its too far east for you.

Ya I got old ones coming so I don't want them to have to drive far. I just want a quiet service overlooking a lake or near a lake somewhere close...

There's a campfire area by some cedars near the shore of Shagawa Lake below Grand Ely Lodge in Ely, Casey. Not sure if that's too far away for or not, but I've photographed two weddings in that location and it's very nice.

Sorry for the vent! Thank you so much for the replies keep em coming! Any more suggestions would be welcome!! grin.gif

Ummmm, are we really talking about the biggest threat to fishing (Marriage) on THIS website? This is a f-i-s-h-i-n-g forum

Nah, LR, we talk about all kinds of things here, not just fishing. And I got lucky. I married my fishing partner, and she's the one who's always on ME to go fishing, not the other way around, so marriage hasn't ruined my fishing career. grin.gifgrin.gif

My cousin got married out at the campground area on the Kawishawi River on Hwy 1. They have a great old pavilion in case it rains. It was very cheap to rent also.

I kayaked by a wedding in progress on the shores of Gooseberry. There's a nice old CCC building where they were having their reception. It's a beautiful site when the weather's nice but can be cold and miserable if the weather's bad--who can predict that?

Casey,

Fished with a friend of mine on a lake in Cherry, think it was called Star Lake. It's somewhat of a private lake, they hold alot of weddings there from what he said. They have a pavillion and dance hall and also kitchen facilities. If your interested, I can get a contact for you. Met some of your family at the Duluth Boat show this year...Nice people.

A couple ideas-

Some friends had a reception at curling club/ hockey hall of fame and it was a nice time-also easy walking distance to bar hop. Maybe Olcott Greenhouse/gardens in town? Tower/vermilion isn't that far away either.

My wife and I got married in the old log church in Bovey and had a reception in Grand Rapids at the KAXE radio station-they have a huge saddle tent that came in handy for rain. There is also a park on lake about 15 min north of virginia off of 53-can't remember the name. Either way if your doing it on the cheap any place that is special to both of you will work,local park/lake, even a friend's yard/cabin. It's nice to have hotels or better yet campgrounds nearby for the reception but don't sweat the small stuff,it's all about you guys and your guests can deal w/ it, in fact we spent alot of time planning (= worrying) and I'd rather have eloped in vegas and then thrown a huge reception afterward when you get home. The important thing isn't the wedding itself it's how many fish you catch in the years to follow;-)

Sorry I don't have any suggestions for weddings locations in those parts but it looks like the guys are have some very good ones.

All I can offer is a location with a backup plan to get under shelter if it rains. If that location has picnic tables all the better. State Parks usually have something like that. I know Jay Cooke does.

Food, maybe you can ask attendees to bringa dish for a buffet style dinner. Get some nice looking plastic table cloths, disposable plats. Make a center piece for each table. Flowers will be out so you or someone can make a few arrangements.

I like camo but you look very nice in that wedding dress and I like it. I think you like it too.

Casey...last year a co-worker got married and had the reception at the Mesaba Coop Park. Was kinda cool, they have that old 2 story building, they had the ceremony up on the stage and then downstairs had the meal, then it was back upstairs for the dancin and drinkin. A few people got cabins or camped there too.

my niece got married at the top of Giant's Ridge. Everyone took the chairlift to the top and with the background of Wynne Lake and the forest it was awesome. Reception was right at the Ridge

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
    • Rick
      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff
