I know I could post this in the "job forum" but I think going directly to the GR forum will speed up my response.

Heres what I'm looking for. I have an older brother that has an unbelievable wealth of knowledge in the retail hunting/fishing industry and is wanting to move to GR soon. He has been selling guns, archery, fishing equipment and many other products in the outdoors and I think he would be very usefull as a "rep" for some company or business in that area. Very personalble and hard working. I am sending this out because he doesn't have internet access and I do. So any good leads or companies that IS looking or maybe is a great place to work would be very valuable. If you would like to email me directly you can. Thanks in advance for any help.

Must be chaos in a town of about 8,000 with 1,000 people looking for jobs in it.

Good Luck!!!

My 19 year old son and I are both out of work here in the Grand Rapids area

With Amesworth closing down. Nearly 300 people got layed off from there. Then you start to see the snowball effect. Loggers who cut tree's for the board plant, the truckers who hauled it, the equipment dealer who serviced and sold the machinery, trucks and other things needed to conduct business. The cafes, gas stations who have lost business. the banks who are getting boats, snowmobiles, atv's, homes back.

The slow, no snow winter, which has had little to no snowmobiliers from the twin cities here. The slow build up of ice on area lakes, that kept people from comming up ice fishing.

I have lived here for the better part of 20 years and have NEVER seen it this tough.

Sad deal

Maybe not the exact field you are looking for, but I do know Hibbing Tac & Keewatin Tac are doing some limited hiring. Good pay, probably shift work, good benifits. It's a start, eh? You can fill out the applications online also. Good Luck!

Later............Dugan!!!

Multiply the layoffs this year by 100 and you have the rest of the range over the last 40 years. I grew up there and left to go to college. Nice place but not a lot of high-paying jobs.

You should have your brother call Ben's Bait and shoot the bull with him for a while. Maybe he has heard of some people who would give him a try.

Hey, not to hijack, but is that tax free development stuff helping out up there or not? I always see that when I drive into town....

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them

      Fished West end Sat AM, typical result.... NADA!  There is a huge pressure ridge running across Wake'em'up bay, across Center Island all the way into Norwegian Bay.  Also one out in H'O'L bay. Use caution out there!

      I fished 3 different lakes in the area this last weekend, and they all seemed to have a consistent 8-10" of ice.  I don't have any info on Pelican, but I would have to assume about the same out there.  I saw some ATVs and snowmobiles out on Pelican driving by it on Sunday.

      The last I heard, they are planning on rebuilding the store and shooting to have it open by fishing opener 2019.  We'll see if that happens or not.  I'm sure the red tape with the insurance companies is a mile long, so getting to the point or rebuilding could take some time.

      The second weekends is in the books. For now it looks like we dodged a bullet with the pressure ridge not becoming active from the 46 degree day Saturday. Hillmens is    asking to  drive extra slow.  Our grand daughter Ashly was up with Davon and our great grandson Bentley.  Pretty cool as Bentley got to reel in a fish making him  the 7th generation of our family to wet a line on such a grand lake.    Because of all the flooding around the houses and the slower fishing Jonny boy and I put here in high gear and proceeded to move most of the fleet on sunday.  It was a good test as we moved California, montana ,florida,. north Dakota and Kentucky. Plus reset them and got all the guest back fishing.  The fishing could of been better, but it always slows down when all the skids houses and traffic hit the lake.  Yesterday we moved montana and north Carolina out deeper where Jonny boy was going to spend the night. I was dragging but around 3pm but did get a second wind aftera hot shower, I got back out on the lake as the sun was setting. Again another spectacular sunset was my reward for a hard days work.  Were going to move old Minnesota and north Dakota today as we push out deeper.  Just like every year we will drive over a million fish looking for the mother load

      6” near middle with expanding ice heave and open water.  Be careful and don’t try to cross, it’s been shifting and unstable.
