Is fishing that bad or is personal life getting in the way!

Pool 2 forum sure is slow. I am heading down this weekend to do a little cat fishing and was wonderinggggggg! If anyone has any luck as of late.

Pool 2 is a great catfishing area, but this year has proven hard to pull a "monster" out of her. I am switching up my presentation a little to see if I can break my pool 2 "monster" dry spell. Last month I got down about 2-3 times with very little luck. Only 2 10lbs flats and one monster walleye. If you have not seen them, i will post images again.

Thanks!

I've only gone shorefishing in hidden falls(st paul side) a couple of times-the last 2 times got NOTHING. I'm heading down there this afternoon around 6 and play to stay till around 9:30.

Any recommendations? I've had best luck way down near the dam, but that hike is kinda rough after the rains.

let me know. My emails is exccitedone@excite.com

      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.
