9 posts in this topic

The wife gave permission for one lsat trip to red. Its a 7 hour drive for me and i was wondering when everybody thinks would be the best time to go? Will probaly go during the week. Is it better to come up when most all the snow is melted to chase down those crappies? Thanks in advance for any info.

My house is up at Red Lake (not actually on the lake though) and I am going to gamble and hope the wheelhouse can follow me onto the lake the last week of March.........Awful hopefull but the weather doesn't seem to want to warm up consistently so far this year......

The ice is generally thinner this year, but insulated by more snow, so its holding very well, should be able to drive 2-4 weeks, the third week of March is usually a good bet without pushing it, and the Crappies are on the move, however if the rains come, all bets are off...

The long range forecast has us starting to lose the snow in 10 days. I'm guessing that the 3rd week of March will wet and sloppy but great ice. The last week should be good going. But like MOBY said rain can change everything faster.

Kelly-p, I know its a long way out but are you looking at driving out on the 3rd week or would it be strictly 4 wheelers and snowmobiles by the?

The forecast doesn't show anything changing through the 12th. I think the 3rd week should be OK.

The only thing that's for sure is that the weatherman will be wrong and change his/her mind several times over the next few weeks. \:D

I wouldn't mind if a little bit of the snow melted before we get up there the evening of the 14th. ;\)

I'm going to call the weather station and ask for some 40's then crash it back to freezing once the snow drops. Hey can't hurt to ask. \:D

      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.
