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....

welcome to Northern Mn. In the 70 and 80's it was the mines, now it is Ainsworth(10 years at the bemidji plant myself) We can all see it coming but no one in st paul cares until election time.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
