14 posts in this topic

Took my good friend Scott from work out yesterday to chase some walters ,fished a few creeks and such and finally found some clear water, but not a single one to be found except this:

Scott37lbs.jpg

37 pounds of "anything that comes near me is supper"

Took Scott a good 15 minutes to land this piggy.I even got a little nervous when I missed with the net, twice tongue.gif

Even LFC can net better than me today was one thought grin.gif

This was Scott's personel best and he was all giddy and wound up for the rest of the day. A few high fives and a couple of bumps later we headed for home to this nice sunset and a few more beers. sunset.jpg

Wow, nice job Brian. I bet that was fun!

I am amazed when I drive over the river in Chaska as to how high the water is!

Fireball jig and minnow on 15 pound spiderwire made for an interesting fight. Scott did a great job of keeping the fish out of the main channel. He asked me what would we do if it would have got out into the channel and my reply was, we got 40 miles of river and a good trolling moter to fight this thing.

      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.
