What is really going on!!!!!!!!!

4 posts in this topic

I have been reading reports on this sight since the first part of December and haven't really seen any good reports of people doing really good. I have been to URL once this year in first of Jan and did terrible. Fished for 4 days 24 hrs a day and caught 12 fish among 4 of us(no crappies). I cant believe I am hearing of people going 2 days of constant fishing and not even getting a bite. I will be coming up again on Feb 15-18 and hope something changes. I always have a blast at URL but getting the fish to bite would be a wonderful improvement on the time spent staring at the Vexilar. I have a lot of faith in Club Red. I think going with a guide might be the best way to get a few more fish than on your own unless you spend alot of time on the lake all year and really get to know it. It is a little harder when you cant really go anywhere on the lake because of the snow.

We were up last weekend (1-3) and did fantastic. We went out the south end by Rogers and set up in 11ft. It was our first time so I didn't really know what to expect but it was awesome. Walleyes and a few crappies, no perch, 1 pike staring at our camera for about 5 min.(that was cool). I think there was only about 1 period(about 30 min where we didn't have a bite. Have fun when you're up there

      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.
