I have not been out in the st. cloud area for awhile. Just wondering if there are any recomondations for a morning or day time walleye bite. Any recomondations would be appreciated.

The chain has been kicking out fish during the day. Some very nice ones as well.

I'd give the river a try, this time of year has always been the best for me out there. Find the holes between the Rice bridge and the old Pirate's Cove.

Thanks guys, both options sound pretty. I would assume that during the day live bait is probably the way to go?

St. Cloud Walleye: Where is the Old Pirates Cove? Never heard of that one before? Years ago I used to go to SCSU and used to fish the river a lot but I have since moved to the cities and don't get up there much anymore. I am seriously thinking of going back in a few weeks though.

The Pirates cove used to be a few miles north of Sartell on the east side of the river.

It's just south of Gordens bridge. I belive it's going to be a housing development now.... My normal spots on the river were difficult to fish a week a go that current is nasty. Haven't been able to make it out latley gearing up for rifle season and trying to seal the deal with bow yet. I have to wait another 2 weeks to hit the river again. Good luck grin.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.
