Actually saw a little skim ice back in a bay while hunting this morning. But some 40's in the forecast so it won't be any time soon.

How are the water temps now just out of curiosity? Headed up to the cabin on Saturday to bring my Otter and Jiffy back to Duluth.

38.6 this am in Frazer Bay.... Burr.... If you are going to be out there, keep it safe. Now is not the time to be swimming out there.

Just need a cold calm night to lock her up. Too bad that particular senerio is not in the forecast for while.

Cliff is s going to have to Pontoons on the Hilton

It should go without saying, but the annual message is to remember to wear a life jacket ANY time you are on the open water when it's this cold.

Fishing was pretty poor. Water temps are way high for this time of the year.

Thanksgiving weekend they will prolly be bout right.

Always next year though. Gonna be on for the full moon next november.

Camping was awesome though and fishing in the snow was great too.

      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.
