Come join the fun again this year chasing jumbo perch, sunfish, walleye and pike on Height of Land Lake (15 miles East of Detroit Lakes), Sunday January 13, 2008. We will meet at the south access at 9am; the access is located on the south shore of SE bay, just off of MN Hwy 34 E, behind the bait shop. We will wait at the access until 930am and then proceed on to the ice for some fishing fun.

Height of Land is a great lake for multi-species angling excitement. HoL is a day-bite lake and can produce some nice jumbo perch and bluegills. Walleyes, pike and the occasional crappie are also possible. Waxies and teardrop jigs, finesse plastics, as well as jigging spoons are standard fare. We will mainly be fishing in 6-10 FOW; you will be able to see the fish down your hole for some sight fishing. There are a lot of northerns out there, but it seems as if the more you see, the better the panfishing will be!! We'll fish until whenever (usually dies down at dark).

Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to eat and drink, as food and beverage will not be provided.

Last year the cold weather hampered the bite, but those that attended had a great time. This event is open to everyone; bring your wife, children, friends and anyone else you would like. This is a great opportunity to meet and fish with other Fishing Minnesota members and a chance to meet new people and share fishing tips and stories.

Date: Sunday January 13, 2008

Location: Height of Land Lake, south access just off MN Hwy 34 E

Time: 9am to 430pm

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
