I'm heading out to chase crappies this afternoon/evening. If anyone would like to join me shoot me an email. I know it's short notice but thought if someone was thinking about heading out this afternoon we could team up.

I was on a local lake this week, i was fishing a weed edge in the morning for crappies and sunnys, It would be dead for 30 min, then all of a sudden the school would come through and I could pick up a couple then they would be gone. It would be like this all morning. Then for the evening bight...They would come through and I could not get them to bight. I tried waxies, minnows, different colors and presentations. Anyone have any advice to entice those fish to bight? You think the cold front shut them off?

I have had that happen to me also. The one thing I learned was to go as small as you can with your jig and bait. That has worked for me in the past but if they still arent biting they must just be swimming by and theres not much you can do then.

      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.
