I like to use the perch colored, glow varmit for a jig and plain red hook on set-line. Its probably not a majic cure for tough fishing this year but it seems to work as good as anything I have used in the past on Mille Lacs.

I have found great fishing with a fluter jig silver/green and gold/red. They are lite and have a really good action to them. It's been my best jig all year for walleyes and perch tiped with a minnow head or lots of grubs 5-10

This time of the year a plain red hood with a lively minnow on it can be the ticket. I also like perch colored lures because they match the hatch but sometimes using those exotic colors will get the fishes attenition.

I hate to say it, but a lot of people were singing the ice fishing blues on ML this weekend. Aside from the warm shack, warm food, warm drinks, and warm truck, there wasn't anything much to crow about. I hope things change next weekend.

In closing i have to say there are fish out there to get them to bite is the challange to see them on cam is awesome but i think i would go else where to fish this ice year because the pond has millions and millions of small perch in it just drop a cam you'll see .Happy fishing to all and i hope come opener this all changes or you are in for a ruff summer up there. Go to another lake not to take away from the pond but this year like years i have seen befor in my years fishing up there it wont get better any time soon maybe by mid summer for now there well fed for a long time.

      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.
