I had been planning a trip with 6 of my closest friends to LOTW.

We were scheduled to be up there March 7-12th. Tip up fishing for big jacks.

My step-dad has had cancer for a very long time and in the past 5 days, the cancer has taken over his body. Hospice will be coming in tomorrow to make him as comfortable as possible.

He and my mom live in Iowa and I'm stuck down here in Texas. That makes it so much harder.

So to all of you on the ice....enjoy yourself and good luck!

Thanks Fisky for the help you gave!

Sorry to hear of this Doop, I will do my best to catch a few in your honor. I will be up there March 13th - 17th.

I feel what you are going through. We had to bury my father in-law today. I have lived next door to him for the last 13 years of my life and he too has battled cancer for the last 4 years. He passed this Tuesday evening with my wife and her mother at his side. Hospice has to be one of the most incredible services in the world. What wonderful people. You are in my thoughts and I hope your father can rest in peace.

Sorry to hear that as well. Went through that process with my mother-in-law about five years ago & a good friend a few years before that. It's a nasty disease that we're all impacted by in some way sooner or later. You & your family will be in our prayers.

      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.
