Looking into a guided northern trip

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking into taking a guided trip on LOW. It seems like most of the guides are into walleyes, but I'd really like to catch a nice big northern and was wondering if anyone has had any good experiences or, would have any suggestions as to who, or where would be a good place to go.

Thanks

MN: Check out the Guide Listing on this site. Most, if not all, of the guides will go for what ever fish you want to catch.. If you have trouble there, call some of the resorts and ask them if they will target Northerns or Musky.. You will locate one of them to fulfill you wishes... Kaz

Thanks Kaz. I looked through the list and I've decided to go for muskie instead. I'm trying to get a trip set up with Doug Johnson for sometime this fall.

MN: You may want to give Bill Sandy of Black Hawke a call. He is at American Point on the Canadian side. His Parents previously owned Monument Bay Resort and he grew up fishing for Musky. I've seen him guide for someone who landed a 5o+ inch beauty. Don't have any phone number for him, but he's defiantly the "best in the business". I've fished with him and his father many times...

      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.
