Big Jet

4 posts in this topic

Anybody fishing west of Garden on Friday when the big military jet circled? I was over towards Knight but that thing was huge, slow and low! When it circled, I thought it might be going in for a crash landing. Finally headed off to the south or southwest. Weird.

The fishing was not good on the rocks around Knight but pretty good for the dirty water on the rocks to the west. Most of the charters were fishing Little Traverse looking for a little cleaner water.

Yeah, he made a couple circles over Springsteel as well... Must have been doing some training from the base over in Grand Forks or something... and yes, it was big!

I was off of Knight Island that day and up by Garden later in the afternoon. What time did you see the jet. We missed it, but we're probably distracted by all the flies that we're in the boat that day.

The fishing wasn't great. Everybody was milling about from place to place on Saturday. I tried multiple reefs, and even went up into Canada to fish some of the reefs later in the day on Saturday and it was just slow everywhere.

Hines R, it was somewhere around 1:00. There was a good bit of radio chatter about the plane. Going as slow and flying as low as it was, when it circled I really thought it was in trouble. Seeings it didn't, the whole thing was pretty cool.

      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.
