4 posts in this topic

I am leaving saturday to head up to osakis for a week. I will be staying at head of the lakes resort. How has the fishing been? normally when we go this time of year we can catch all kinds of northerns in 6-12 feet trolling spoons? any walleyes being caught? we usually like to have a meal of fish the last day we are there just wondering how hard its going to be to get some to eat/

The walleyes haven't been too tough to find, although finding keepers has been. Haven't fished much for northerns this year so I can't comment on them. But if you're looking for a meal of fish, it shouldn't be too hard to find a mess of bluegills. Just look for all the boats in a cluster.

If you're live bait rigging, both leeches and crawlers have worked. If you like to troll crankbaits, you can generally find a couple along the weedlines.

I haven't fished for bass lately.

      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.
