good panfish lake?

7 posts in this topic

Okay, which lake is a good panfish lake? My 4 year old has been on me daily to take him fishing again but I need to get him on a lake where he can catch something, perch, gills, anything. I was thinking about taking him out on Bemidji tomorrow with a bunch of waxies and see what happens, any ideas on where to start? Cameron, Northwoods landing, Paul & Babe?

not sure why you even want to use that little run down shack... cool.gif LOL!

We did very well, I was very surprised the boys stayed out there all day, had a heck of time keeping them outta stuff but it went well. I have to say it was probably one of the funnest times I've had as a dad so far, the boys were pulling fish outta the ice and having a blast.

Hail the Woodman... grin.gif

I told your wife at work that I am not responsible for you buying my shack. grin.gif She laughed and said that you all had a great time. You want to work this weekend, moving another house out to that spot? We could bring the 4 kids and cook dinner and catch some fish! \:D

The wifes would love us for that! ;\)

I sure hope you turned the furnace off with this cold weather or else we will be heating the minnnow's up all week! grin.gif

I left the down payment on the table in the shack... whistle.gif

Yeah, let me know what time you need a hand. I turned the furnace down to the 50 degree mark so you should have a couple lbs. of propane left... grin.gif

Oh, and one of your rattle reels is probably messed up, I went to close the curtains (it was dark) and when I pulled it down my hand caught some line and ziiiinnnnngggggg! Sorry, I could have fixed it but the boys were banging something on the truck, Sam had a wet boot/sock/foot due to stepping in a hole...figured I'd better get them outta there. mad.gif

Ever try Grace lake? I used to go out there in about 9ft. Sight fishing. Great time! Go out from the acess about 1/4 mile then go south about 1/4 mile. you should be in a prime spot. 3-6 is the best bite. Some crappies out there, big boys. There very hard to find out there though. Good luck.

      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.
