New Member Welcome: Last Cast Adventures

Welcome to the Chamber:  Last Cast Adventures
Many small towns in Minnesota (and all across America for that matter) have something that is unique to them. For instance, Pequot Lakes has a bobber water tower, Darwin the largest ball of twine, Paul Bunyan statues in Brainerd and Bemidji just to name a few.
Federal Dam, Minnesota has the Federal Dam of course, but it also has another unique “structure” located at the corner of 4th Avenue and Birch Street. A boat that don’t float known as the “Last Cast”. Not just any boat, but a unique part of Leech Lake history. There is a wooden 1965 28′ Chris Craft Sea-Skiff prominently displayed with a patio built around it. The boat at one time was a postal boat on Leech Lake from 1966 to 1977. It was converted to a fishing charter boat and was one of many fishing charter boats that was a mainstay of five fishing charter businesses at Federal Dam back in the day. Only one fishing charter business operates in Federal Dam today, and there are no more wooden charter boats. The boat and patio are filled with unique and historical items from Federal Dam.
The “Last Cast” was retired in 2014 and put on display in 2016 in the yard of Randy & Shannon Longseth. They wanted to do something different and the boat presented itself. The couple had a unique fishing themed wedding and got married on the boat in 2016. The couple wanted to have the “Wow” factor and have achieved just that.
It’s hard to explain the uniqueness of the “Last Cast” but well worth the drive to Federal Dam to check it out. Both Randy & Shannon love to visit and very happy to talk about their little bit of “history” at Federal Dam.
The Longseth’s operate a small fishing guide operation known as Last Cast Adventures. They have 2 rental cabins and an area for RV (no hook ups) small campers, and tents. If fishing is not your thing, Randy is willing to take you on a boat tour of the “other” side of Leech Lake. The Last Cast Patio is the focal point of the business. Cook outs, fish fry’s, and beverages are enjoyed on the patio throughout the fishing season.
