7 posts in this topic

How was the fishing this weekend. Wife said I had to finish all the half started projects in the basement. So how was it Mostly wondering about Lake Zumbro, Chester, and Fosters. Gonna take a day or two off work and run around and do some fishing. Trying to figure out where I was going to spend my time.

I fished Foster's on Saturday from 10:30 to 4:45.

Missed a trout immediately when I dropped my first line in the water, then caught a 15-incher ten minutes later. Caught a 10" largemouth at 1:30 and another trout around 17" at 3:30.

Other than that, a lot of waiting and watching the flasher. I was marking lots of fish near the bottom. If I had dropped a jig and spikes down there I probably could have caught some gills or crappies too, but I mainly fish Foster's for trout action.

I talked to one other guy who fished with a buddy for a couple hours and he said all they caught was a smallmouth. They had a camera and he said they saw a lot of sniffers but no biters.

Never been there and from what I hear that lake gets enough action with out me dipping in the well. But mabey someday I'll venture out there for fun. But when it comes to panfish and I'm fishing for a limit. I like to do it out of bigger bodys of water where there is a larger population. But thats just me. Even though I'll keep a limit worth of crappies mabey twice all year. It's just how I am.

I was out at silver creek this morning.....not very fun. The whole resevoir was all ice, no snow on top. I set my small shack up and the wind immediately pick up and I was flying across the ice inside the shack...not very fun. I finally got it stabalized and put a line and my vexilar in the water, when the wind picked up and blew me away again. Hey keith where abouts do you fish at in the morning. I was out yesterday afternoon and caught one nice crappie towards the northeast side of the resevoir.

      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.
