Two of us went out of Hillman's 7.5 miles straight out Fri 5pm-Sat 10am. Caught 9 Eyes with my brother getting a beautiful 26.5 incher. No crappies. Approx half the fish came on a hook with a green Glow Tube with a sucker minnow, the rest were split between glow red Snake Jig and blue Glow Spoon.

Saturday morning we moved the house. At 6.2 miles a road goes to the right we went 2.3 miles down there. Then went into the big city(Waskish) for lunch and Bloody Marys. Went back out and fished in that spot from 2pm Sat-Sunday 9:30am. Caught a couple really nice perch and 5 Eyes. So it was a little slower there. Did talk to someone who was near there that caught one crappie and did see a big school of crappies on his aquaview but only one biter.

Overall a great trip! Went home with our limit of Eyes and a couple perch.

On our way off the ice Sunday morning we talked to Kelly who was out moving the road and putting out a bridge because of the big crack that went thru the road Saturday night. Thanks Kelly! Hope you didn't have to spend the rest of your day pulling out Foster!

Good Fishing to All!

We can't pick on Foster for a while. Rebuilding that 1/2 mile section of road was brutal. 5 plow trucks, 2 1/2 hours and stuck 25 to 30 times. We left behind banks over 6 feet high in places. Foster never got stuck?!?!?!?!?!?!?! \:oconfused.gifgrin.gif

It's "breaking the bank" around here too but the other way around. Too much time spent pushing snow and too many banks. \:\(

      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.
