BBG,

Haven't been up there (north end) very much lately. Got a 44 on a small bucktail a few days ago. Saw lots of lazy fish up on the shallow sand. Had a really short feeding window. One went after it boatside, but didn't hook up. Shortly after, we caught the 44. Then numerous lazy follows. Then nothing. I'd recommend you be there early or late. I'm not hearing about much going on there during the day.

Tim said it.The North end has been a bit off lately, but the fish are still there. The diversity of structure South has been better during the day.Some big surprises at 2:00 in the afternoon.The pm bite is still king.Big blades have been the ticket all season. Fish the same spots you would during the day.Be careful and make sure your lights etc. are in working order before heading out.Also, prepare for success at night.Clean/organize the boat and have lighting and release tools ready.Most of all have fun and feel the rush when she eats at boatside.Extreme fishing at it's finest. Steve

      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.
