If anyone knows of any opportuniites for an Electrical Engineer in the area please let me know. I wanna move north and get away from the city, I am open to anything related to engineering and product development.

My buddy is also looking for SAP positions in the area.

If you have any ideas on either please e-mail me.

Sorry this just sat there for a while but
I would have a hard time spelling electrical
engineer let alone knowing what one does.

I do know that quality skilled employees
are of value anywhere these days.

The City of Thief River Falls owns it own
electricity and has everything that is
required to maintain and control our power.

Digi-key is a world wide supplier of components for computer and electrical stuff.
they employ lots of people in related fields.

Up here just about everyone uses electricity
now a days.

There must be a statewide group of electrical
engineers or something on line that could
give you some leads.

If I wasnt real helpful sorry, I figured
someone should take a shot.

oh, by the way SAP?

There may be some paycheck shock involved.

Thanks for the reply...I have done a lot of digging on my own, but as it turns out, the market is just simply in a down turn and everyone is trying to cut costs as much as possible. I have checked at Arctic Cat, they are looking for one EE with small engine design experience, Digi-key is looking more along the lines of High school, or 2 year degree people,...I am just not finding a match at this time. I think when the market turns, and places like Arctic Cat and Polaris start to see they need EEs to, not just MEs than there may be something up in paradise. I have no problem taking a cut to move up there, but to be honest from what I have seen the cuts in pay are not proportional to the cost of living, or housing. Housing is really the big one, I can't even get into anything here for less than 150, up there that gets me a dang nice place!

I am just looking and hoping to run across someone "on the inside" so to speak, that might have an opportunity for me. Until then or until the market turns, I will just keep my eyes and ears open.

Oh and SAP, I dunno, it is some sort of software system for database management or something like that,..I am not completely sure, everyone that deals with it knows what it is,...I haven't had the need to know yet.

Thanks for the response.

Good luck,

But I know for a fact it has been many
MANY years since there were any Electric
Trains around here.

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.

      i cant speak for out that way but check the st cloud thread.......Rick gavee a pretty decent report on the ice around the area. he fishes a ton in the winter and is thinking of calling it quits............that tells me something!!!!

      be careful!!

      Thinking about one last outing, any information on the ice?
    • Brianf.
      There's not much snow left from what I can see on our Ring cam.  This is facing North across Niles Bay.  Also, the temp is 44 at this moment so what snow might be left is going fast.

      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.

      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌

      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.
