There was around 60 fish caught with the largest being a 5 lb Northern. There were a mix of Northern, Crappies, Perch, and Walleyes caught.

I checked out an article about the contest on the hibbing daily tribune site and it said a father son duo won the contest with a 10 lb. 6 oz. northern. Just a bit larger than 5 lbs.

Thats odd, I was with the guy who caught the biggest fish and took home the $200 and it was I believe 5lbs 6oz. Where did you see that article?

i was hoping to get up there soon. i was thinking about this weekend but then i ended up having to go on a date with Gina to some fancy restaraunt. i will be up there for sure on the 13th of March. i want to get out and do some fishing for crappies and bluegills. hoping the weather will cooperate and i will be able to get out on some spots with relative ease and be able to just hole hop without having to put up the shack.

i bought one of the eskimo III pop ups things and it's great. best shack that i have owned. maybe we will run into you then. i noticed P is back; i got an email from him today. hope he likes the new frying pan that he flew to San Fancisco to find.

      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.
