I was down there Sat. morning and did pretty well. 5 eyes, 3 sauger, a big crappie, cattie, a rockbass, several smallies......and probibly the biggest walleye of my life! I've never got one in the 30" range, but I think I had one on. It hit like a snag, like most where doing, and as I turned the boat around with the troller it took off! I didn't think it was too big at first, but after a few hard runs I was loosening my drag in respect. I got it up off the bottom and within a few feet of the boat,once, and with a flash of his tail he was GONE! The rig busted at the loop to the swivel. I was sadd... and I still am. Ohh well maybe next time. I'll be up north this weekend but I can't wait to try the river again.

I was fishin a worm harness, no spinner or float, just a bead w/ a nightcrawler. Found fish from 13-28 fow, with 16-24 fow being the best for walleye. Most fish seemed to be in concentrated areas and they would hit it hard once and hold it. The 2 walleye I kept where both hooked deeply in the throat with atleast one of my hooks, and I wasn't giving them much line.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
