I was out there on Saturday. About 30 to 40 houses for a small lake. Its seemed way over pressured, and the fishing showed. The bite was extremely slow, and the few crappies we caught were not that impressive (9").

Good luck if you go though. Me, I won't make the drive for that lake again. I have friends in the area and hopefully they will want to try a different lake next time.

The bad thing is, word gets about about a small lake like that producing a few nice fish. And they get cleaned out in no time.

Didn't this lake freeze out a few years ago? If I were catching 10" bluegills I certainly wouldn't be talking about it on a fishing forum.

just my two cents worth

It must have frozen out. It sure hasn't produced much this year. It is a shallow lake with a max of 11' but with the low water levels its more like 9' now.

For the size of this lake it gets WAY TOO MUCH pressure to sustain it for a long term. I agree it shouldn't be discussed in detail on an open forum.

I have ice fished this lake the last 4 years and never had great success......a few nice sunnies and very few nice crappies....put in time on this body of water and I won't go back anytime soon.....stay on that lake and join the masses as I will go elsewhere! 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.
