Wed-Thu Big Fish Watch

9 posts in this topic

I won't be able to make it up, but it appears Wed-Thu could be big fish days in the area. On Wednesday, a fairly strong and deepening low will spin up in Canada and trail a front into the Red River Valley. Surface winds will be aligned s/sw with the front, which means it won't push east very quickly. The front will move through or be very near the DL area by late day Wednesday, but basically become stationary as a very strong impulse develops to the sw, serving as an anchor. It would appear the front could wobble in the area through late Thursday or even Friday morning. We saw this earlier in August and had three crazy days in a row, but also some severe weather in the lakes area...so keep an eye out and carry your NOAA weather radio on Thursday.

Us operational meteorologists usually consider the long range stuff voodoo meteorology, but the long range climate dudes are forecasting a 30 percent likelihood of above normal temperatures for MN for the Dec-Feb time period. This will be updated next week (once monthly toward mid month)

We had 2 boats trolling plugs last night on the 2 best spots on this particular lake (a lake I've fished for over 20 years) from 7-9:30pm, and all we got was 1 walleye. And this lake is known for an evening plug trolling bite. Sorry to rain on your forcast.... frown.gif

      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.
