We are unsure what the ice is going to do this spring as mother nature is in control and it has been a odd year.

Although we have come up with this plan.

Well if mother nature plays nice and melts the snow cover off then keeps the temps low enough to hold the ice pack it could be some great fishing. Of course ma nature is going to do what ever she wants. I'm hoping for some good conditions into the end of March so we can get some decent fishing in this spring before I have to start prepping the boat.

Best to email me for this as I have a few options and prefer to keep the boring business stuff of the forum.

I think I was just kidding. It just sounded funny the way I read it. What happened to a little humor involved with this whole forum gig. I love how the same people jump on others for certain comments. You actually think I was hoping for GPS coordinates. Fish move and I am currently aware of that. "I know Jonny P and that wasn't nice man!!"

So on my GPS it show different bottom colors. That means what? Muck and gravel? Do I want to be on the gravel? Never fished URL so any tips would awsome.

The colors are depth contours. 1-3 one color, 3-5 another so on and so forth.

For Crappies you want to stay deeper then 12' mark on your map until ice off. That is the mud for the most part. Once the ice is off the crappies start heading across the gravel/sand.

(I'm going to always give an informative answer you jokers \:\) )

We are starting to pull them today. I'm feeling old and wore out but Jon still has some energy left so he might keep some out awhile longer. He is starting guiding people out from shore on Monday. In other words he's in charge and I'm in my recliner. Kinda like most of the winter. grin.gif

"Kelly plowing in the full reclining position!"

Wasn't that just after the Red Chevy sacrificed itself to keep your 1 ton from driving into the pressure ridge?

grin.gif Reclining seat all the time, bent steering wheel, doors that didn't close anymore and with the bent frame it made left hand turns real good. O the fun we've had through the years. grin.gif

      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.
