Good Luck out there, I spent Thursday afternoon and evening on French casting, water clarity made it tough to see any follows, was marking some nice fish out a little deeper, but never tried trolling for them.

Just got back from French, water is still murky so we couldnt tell if we had any follows. We fished with bucktails and top water lures. Did have the local Rice county sherriff stop by and shoot the breeze though, he said they are biting and one of the local guys that lives on the lake just pulled in a 50 plus fish. Todd

Sry wallyhunter66 I've been fishing,working a lil, and at my dads, none of them have a computer. When I went to my g-ma to "work" I got up early to go fish a lil of of Hoy's dock with a sucker. Caught a 45" around 6:30 and sad story I dont know if she made it. You can read 'bout that under the muskie forum. After that I had 1 of my 3 suckers left and went to hook it and the slimey lil guy got out of my hands and into the lake. So my day ended early and my work also started early. I'll be out there 2sday through wedsnday possibly thursday. Then again this weekend. Next report will be the next time I find a computer or next monday or 2sday.

      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.
