Only two weeks until we head up for a full week of vacation. YEA! Can't wait to get the heck out of town. This is my most favorite vacation of the year. We have a group of 8 plus a 3 month old going this year. Should be a blast. Anyone been up there yet this year? Hows the fishing?

I will let you know what the 411 is when I get back. I am heading up on the 2nd and will be back on the 7th. I am trying to get some info for fishing northern and bass up there. I will be doing alot of eye fishing also. I have a friend that lives up there and he says the eyes have been snapping but it has been so hot lately. Will keep you informed.

From Warroad to the angle it's about 40 miles, and takes less than an hour in my boat on a calm day.

Well we all had a great time up there this year!! We did not make our limits but there were plenty of fish to catch and throw back. We bumped into allot of 22 and 23 inchers. They sure were fun to catch. We still had plenty Walleyes to eat and brought back a few a piece to put in the freezer.

I caught a 43 inch musky on the Canada side and thought I was king, but the highlight of the trip was the 50 inch musky that my wife caught. We were trolling around with leaches and jig heads. She had 6 pound test line on and we still managed to land her. WOW what a fight and what a fish.

We are happy to report that she went back very well.

So thanks to all for the advise and if you want to know what the musky are biting on. Try a Jig head with a leach.

      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.
