I don't know - I will let you know on Monday.

I plan to be running down some fish this weekend in the cold. That's the plan anyway!

Where are the spots for Crappies on Pelican. I have asked this before on here, but I still cannot catch one. I fish for walleyes and bass all summer for 5 years now and have yet to catch a Crappie. I will be bringing 40 some people up to Breezy Point in Late Feb, where could I get into the fish on the West side through the ice.

I just need to know structure and depth, I can find the spots from there.

I have caught them in 17-24 fow in weeds, and transitions from weeds to sand bars or muck.

They havent been in the bay much this year. It varies year to year. Generally they bite at nite with glow jigs, but they havent done much this year. Moose bay has some occassionally in the 12 ' hole. Sometimes you can get them near weavers point, but its hit and miss, you have to stumble on them when your fishin for wallys.

Thanks a lot, I will have to try some of those spots. I have never even seen them on the aqua view, but supposedly there are some pretty good size ones in the lake.

Yea there are some good sized ones in Pelican. Last year we could catch 6-8 of them and a couple eyes in our 20' walleye hole. I think i have only caught one this year though. I fish by goosberry island off the knoxies landing. Let us know if anyone finds them!!!

      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.
