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.

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.

      We did ok on small Lakers during the winter off the point to the left looking out from the resort in about 25-40' feet. I would talk with the resort folks where they may be biting now though.  Good luck.

      The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are committed to a fair, efficient, and thorough review of Enbridge’s Line 3 Replacement Project applications.  After reviewing the Minnesota Court of Appeals’ ruling regarding the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Line 3 project, both agencies have determined that, consistent with state law, they may not take final action on the applications pending before them until the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) addresses the EIS deficiency identified in the court’s remand. Recognizing that state law both allows and encourages simultaneous work on environmental review and permit applications, the two agencies will continue their work reviewing the Line 3 applications. The court’s decision, however, does have implications for how this work will proceed. Most notably, the MPCA will not be releasing draft permits and the 401 water quality certification on July 1 as previously scheduled. This schedule adjustment will allow MPCA to consider the additional PUC environmental review analysis before initiating its public comment process. More generally, both agencies will fully review any additional information that becomes available through the PUC’s EIS revision process, including public input to the PUC, prior to making decisions on the pending applications. Neither agency will take final action on the Line 3 Replacement license and permit applications until there is an approved EIS. Once the scope and timing of the EIS revision process are established by the PUC and/or courts, the DNR and MPCA will be in a better position to determine whether additional adjustments are needed to their application review processes and timelines.

      He doesn't post here much anymore, but I want to give a big thanks to Cliff.  Most of you don't know, but I volunteer as the director of the Minnesota Outdoor Adventure Foundation.  We are a 501c3 non-profit that provides fishing & hunting adventures for kids & young adults with life-threatening illnesses, as well as combat disabled veterans.  Cliff has donated a day on the water to our annual fundraiser every year.  In addition, we just provided a Vermilion fishing trip for a young man that is battling cancer for the 2nd time and going through a very difficult treatment. Cliff was one of 3 guides that took him out fishing and he told me they had the most fun listening to Cliff's stories and caught the most fish with Cliff.     Thank you Cliff!!  You have truly helped make a difference.

      6/18/19     Been out on Waconia, Tonka, and Prior over the last week. Bass and pike are done spawning and are out in the weed flats off the spawning areas in seven to ten feet of water. Feeding on sunfish that are staging and spawning in the same areas. Catching them on almost any horizontal presentation. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Watch for turtles on roadways The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding motorists that turtles are crossing roads to nest this time of year. Motorists are asked to watch for them and, whenever possible, allow them to cross the road safely.  Each year at this time, many female turtles move from lakes, ponds, wetlands, rivers and streams to nesting areas. They are looking for suitable locations to deposit their eggs. Many nesting areas are a significant distance from turtles’ wintering areas. As they attempt to cross roads, moving at a turtle’s pace, many are hit and killed by cars. Roadway mortality is believed to be a major factor in turtle population declines throughout the United States. “Wildlife rehabilitators have noticed an increase this year in turtles brought in with cracked shells after being struck by cars,” said DNR herpetologist Carol Hall. “Turtles pre-date dinosaurs by millions of years, and they’ve outlasted them. But, if we want them to be around into the future, we should lend a hand.” Helping turtles safely cross roads can help preserve Minnesota’s turtles, Hall said. She provided a few pointers: Mostly importantly, don’t put yourself or others in danger. Simply pulling off the road and turning on hazard lights may alert other drivers to slow down. Be aware of surroundings and traffic. Allow unassisted road crossings. When turtles can safely cross roads unaided due to a lack of oncoming traffic, allow them to do so. Observe from a distance and avoid rapid movements, as doing otherwise will often cause turtles to change direction, stop, or seek shelter within their shells. If necessary to pick them up, all turtles except snappers and softshells (also known as leatherbacks) should be grasped gently along the shell edge near the mid-point of the body. If it is a snapping turtle or softshell turtle, try to use a car mat and pull it across the road. Many turtles empty their bladder when lifted off the ground, so be careful not to drop them if they should suddenly expel liquid. Avoid excessive handling that can disrupt turtle behavior. Maintain direction of travel. Always move turtles in the same direction they were traveling when encountered. Turtles should always be moved across roadways in as direct a line as possible. Help document turtle crossing and mortality areas by participating in the Minnesota Turtle Crossing Tally and Count Project. More information can be found at mndnr.gov. Turtles injured while trying to cross the road may be taken to your nearest permitted wildlife rehabilitator. More information about Minnesota’s nine turtle species is available on the DNR website.

      We went at the end of opener weekend. It had a nice crowd but wasn't busy at all. Good vibe but they struggled with the food. My salad and my wife's sandwich were both good. They massively overcooked the cheesecurds so when the waitress brought them out, she said that another batch was on the way. That was at least good customer service. Our daughter's pizza took forever because when they pulled it out of the oven, they realized that they had put hashbrowns on instead of cheese. I honestly don't know how that happens unless it's crazy busy, but like others, I chalked it up to a new staff. I've been to enough new restaurants to know that the wrinkles need to be ironed out.   I'll make it back there. They got the atmosphere and the customer service right, so I'll wait for them to get their act together on the food.

      Earliest fishing I remember I was 5 or 6 catching bullheads in Stewart lake near dad's farm. In Oct. dad would winter on Long Boat Key Fl. fishing Sarasota/Tampa bay and Gulf of Mexico many variety fish, stone & blue crab, cast netting, shrimping. Jr./Sr. High ran mate on Mar Vista Charters after King Mackeral and Red Snapper. During summers we fished mom's home town lakes in Ottertail, and over to Grand Rapids & Walker. Even threw a line with a leg of beef off the Fantail of the USS Constalation during 2 tours in the South China Sea targeting sharks good thing we never hooked one. Later had a home on Comfort for 35 years, take the kids out after work for a dozen or so crappie for dinner. In my Sr. years I moved from buying to building fishing items, wheel house, under water cameras, augers, shanties giving much more gratification to the art of fishing. This summer's projects - riding snow dog & drop down Snitty Sled for 2 man flip. As one ages energy leaves you. Been on water most of my life, fishing was natural.

      Was up a couple of weeks ago and went over for lunch. Had nice younger waitress and was her first day and she did fine. Middle age lady was helping her assume it was owner?  Food was good. Couple of us had a big salad and had walleye added. Huge piece of walleye. Looked like a decent lunch crowd. We really like the place.

      I have to 2nd what del said. Some of their early models in that size had some major issues. I'm not sure if it was that model or not but around that year a lot of that size, ~ 200 hp(6 cylinder(?)) , they made had some big problems.
