Deer Lake report...

3 posts in this topic

I was out on Deer last night from about 6:30 to 11:30. I rigged leeches the first 3 hours and couldn't keep the largies, rocky's, perch, and bluegill off the hook. I started crankin' about 9:30 and caught a 22" 'eye in about 7-8' of water on a #7 shallow shad rap black/chrome. No other bites that felt like walleye, caught a few rockies as always. When trolling raps, do you usually catch one here, one there, or do you catch them in close proximity to eachother? I've always caught one here, one there.

Brian,

A little off the topic, but I promised to tell you how we did on Turtle. Biggest smallie I caught was 4 lbs. As Ken said, there is a slot on them. Caught as many LM as SM. Only one Northern (5 lbs.). Not one eye all week. Kids had a great time catching sunnies.

Great structure on the lake! Can't wait to go back!

Titans,

Thanks for the report. I still have to get up to Turtle this summer yet, maybe Tuesday? Any size to the sunnies? I always heard about the smallies on Turtle and never largies, but it's nice to know they're both in there. I've heard about the big gators in Turtle and plan on trying it this winter at first ice, either spearing or angling. Thanks for the report!

Brian

      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.
