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.

Sounds very cool! cool

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.

      Well “sadly”. Yes I just said that. Winter is coming to an end and gross summer is near. The hot temps, Humidity, mosquitoes, crazy busy boat landings, drunk boaters. The worst time of the year is near. Life is so blah now. No snowmobiling, no ice fishing, ( I wouldn’t be done for awhile yet but mom won’t let me go anymore😳), I mean really!? I could still drive my truck out What’s more dangerous late ice or being out on first ice on 2”-4”? It’s just water, mud and by far my least favorite time of year. This winter just went by way way to fast! But it is what it is. Can’t believe it, but so long winter 18-19😭🙋‍♂️. In summary probably one of the top ice seasons for me! It’ll make me feel better if I can share some pics with y’all. Enjoy! This is only a VERY few select pics from the winter. Biggest walleye- 21” (caught 3 total all caught while fishing for crappies or gills). Biggest gill- 9-3/4”. Biggest crappie- 13”. Total ice outings 29. (I wanted one more to reach 30). 26 angling outings, 3 dark house spearing outings.

      I am new to catfishing, and live near the stretch of the Mississippi river above the Ford lock and dam to the Marshall Ave. bridge. I have walked along the shore, and found some spots I think would hold some catfish. My only concern is how shallow the river is here. I will be trying these spots within the next two weeks. I am curious if anyone has had success in this section, or will I be wasting my time?

      Didn't go out of resort was on my own off the edge of gull rock reef

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.
    • gimruis
      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.
