I would take her fishing first and propose in the fish house. Then have the limo lined up to go celebrate after you have proposed.

She might think something is funny if she sees the limo before you drop the question.

Do you think that she will think it is romantic? I do but some women might think it is stupid. Gee maybe you could have your wedding in Apeldoorns new monster house. laugh

You're a brave soul! Unless you know that she is a fishing/outdoors nut and that's something you share in common, I wouldn't do it that way. No way! I very much do get wanting to surprise her in a way she won't see it coming.

Valentines being one of the most romantic days of the year anyway, she see's a limo before the question and she'll know it's coming, that can be good or not so much. If I were you, I'd make plans with her casually, like it's any weekend not V day, then if you have a favorite hangout where you know she's at home, (restaurant/bar etc) get the folks there involved, maybe have them attach the ring to her dessert or tied to the stem of a champagne glass and served to her in some situation where you just add it to your normal routine, that's how you'll shock her. Then the limo etc sounds great!

Good luck!

You could put the ring on her line for the old bobber down trick, but I wouldn't want to be responsible for a large pike accepting your gift.

Do it the day after valentine's day, she'll be more surprised then. Be very careful that you don't drop the ring down the hole.

I wouldn't do it on Valentines Day. If you want to really surprise her, do it the day after. She maybe expecting it and if it doesn't happen when she thinks it will, she will be even happier when she thinks she's let down the next day. That was my plan last year, but I really couldn't wait. I had the ring for about an hour before I asked Feb 13th. She always said that she would know when I was going to ask and I couldn't surprise her. I think I surprised myself even, but don't tell her that.

It sounds like you have some good idea's so far. If you want to get the A.O.K., talk with her mother first wink

Then? Who do you blame 10 years down the road when this is brought up. LOL grin

On the same side of the road as the Northern Inn, but north about 150ft, is a very nice restaurant called BeLa's. It is more of a white tablecloth bistro type of place than Carlsona. Carlsona has great food but it is a small town supper club. If you wanted to do the restaurant surprise (like the hokey GC pancake ad being run on TV these days.) I'm sure they would help you out. There is a room in back that is kind of private. The food is excellent but for ML it is spendy. Went there (BeLa's)3 or 4 times last summer. [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

You do have to post how it turns out.

thanks for the thoughts guys. And yes I'm sure she would love doing it at the fishhouse. She has already made it very clear to me she would like to have a wedding on the lake on some type of large party boat. Thought it woul be nice to propose at the same place we would be married on the water. My idea was sending her off to be pampeered for the day an all that like its her valentune gift then when her day was over take her to the fishhouse. She has been begging me to take her ice fishing an has never had the opportunity to be in a nice house. Still trying to figure out where to get the house at though.

I proposed last summer to my gal while fishing walleyes on Tonka last year. I slipped a wine bottle with a love note (proposal) overboard, when she wasn't looking. She saw saw the bottle shortly after and shouted "Hey! look a bottle..maybe there is a note in it." She started reading the note and still had no idea it was for her. when it finally came to her and she turned to me, I already had the ring out and was on my knee.

Totally fooled her!

Good luck, my sister inlaw and brother inlaw got married in Jan 12 years ago on the ice by there fish house. One house to get ready the other one was set up as a bar. I had to shuttle everyone out in my pickup then shuttle them back in.It was pretty neat. Now they spend the whole month of Jan in the fish house on Mille Lacs.

      After chasing panfish, walleye and pike for the winter, the trout season has opened. Let the trout chase begin. We were very blessed with some great catches and a fantastic time as a family. We were also blessed by some help from the game warden. Thank you!  Get outdoors and be AWESOME. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

      The Department of Natural Resources today announced leadership appointments in its Commissioner’s Office.  DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen named current Assistant Commissioner Barb Naramore as deputy DNR commissioner. Since 2013, Naramore has overseen three divisions (Ecological and Water Resources, Forestry, and Lands and Minerals) and worked frequently with other divisions on interdisciplinary efforts. Prior to joining the DNR, Naramore was executive director of the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association, where she worked with five states, federal agencies, and stakeholder groups on river-related programs and policies, including a groundbreaking aquatic ecosystem restoration and monitoring program. “Barb has a passion for the full breadth of DNR’s work and understands its importance in the lives of all Minnesotans,” said Strommen. “As deputy, Barb will work closely with me on DNR’s strategic direction, building partnerships with external stakeholders, and fostering our efforts to connect all Minnesotans to the outdoors.” Naramore will oversee the agency’s regional directors, assistant commissioners, and general counsel. Strommen said as she works to create a DNR leadership team, “my primary goal is to ensure that we have both the framework and the individuals DNR needs to implement its critical and complex mission and pursue Gov. Tim Walz’s vision for One Minnesota.” Other appointments:
      Assistant Commissioner Bob Meier will continue leading the DNR’s legislative and governmental affairs efforts. According to Strommen, “Bob will also use his deep knowledge and experience with natural resources policy and programs to oversee the Enforcement and Fish and Wildlife divisions.” Meier has been with the DNR since 2003, serving as legislative affairs director and as assistant commissioner. He was the legislative affairs director for the Office of Environmental Assistance from 1994-2003. He is an avid outdoors person, hunter and angler. Jess Richards, currently director of the DNR’s Lands and Minerals Division, is joining the Commissioner’s Office as assistant commissioner overseeing the divisions of Ecological and Water Resources and Lands and Minerals.  As Lands and Minerals director, Richards helped lead the agency’s Strategic Land Asset Management work, modernized its land records system, and navigated complex minerals development and environmental protection challenges across multiple mining projects.  He is also an avid outdoors person who enjoys camping, hunting, fishing, and biking with his family. Before joining the DNR in 2012, Richards worked at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency for 18 years, serving in a variety of leadership and staff capacities. Randolph Briley will join the DNR as special assistant to the commissioner. Briley will focus on public engagement, outreach and building stakeholder coalitions. Prior to joining the DNR, Briley served for over nine years in Washington, D.C. as Congressman Walz’s agriculture and natural resources policy advisor and legislative director. During this time, Briley worked on passage of important federal conservation policy, including the 2014 Farm Bill Conservation Title, the Sportsmen’s Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Enhancement Act, Land and Water Conservation Fund Reauthorization and the National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act. The DNR will announce a third assistant commissioner and other leadership appointments soon. The third assistant commissioner will oversee the divisions of Forestry, Parks and Trails, and Operations Services. “I’m very humbled and honored that these outstanding public servants have agreed to work in the Commissioner’s Office,” Strommen said. “They share a passion for the DNR’s mission and will provide a diversity of deep experience and perspectives.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone been out on Lake George lately near Oak Grove?  I'm heading out there on Saturday and I was wondering if people are driving out there.  I know that channel off of the landing can be sketchy.  Thanks in advance.
