Fish lake near duluth

Was great yesterday. Eating size walleyes and huge bluegill caught off bottom bouncers and crawler harness. Used the bottom bouncer more like a downrigger because of snags. Had a great breakfast this morning. Plus, got to play with my new boat cool.gif

Thanks. I'd been on them, then kind of lost 'em. Hope to get the wife and daughter out this weekend - 'spose you were moving right along. I've been using white corkies on a rig - 3'-4' above my slip sinker with a crawler.

Has anybody been up to fish the last week or so? My girlfriend wants to go fishing on Saturday. Just hoping for a report on if the eye's are biting or if I just entertain her with sunnies. Because they're delicious too!

At this time last year we had a blast drifting 1/8th oz. jigs and minnows over submerged weeds by Dock Island. We caught some huge perch and some nice sunnies as well as nice eyes.

It was truly a wedding of our dreams!! We had 75 people on the island and even had a float plane so the "new" wife could throw her flowers from it!! We left the dock cause the pelicans just loved it!! We did get some heat from MP&L but told they we werent intreasted in "Squatting rights" as we worded the island all summer long...... I sure hope people take care of the island like we did!! We will be up there tomorrow to celibrate our anniverisy. If your out there we will be in a white and tan SmokerCraft.... Say HI!!!

I dont think the "dock island" referred to here is the same one You got married on as it wont fit 75 people,,,,Im thinking You had your cerimony at the campsite with the gardens planted on the west side of the lake ,,,,birch/dock island is almost due south of the public landing

Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!

Well my weekend of fishing didn't make it out of the driveway. Hooked up the boat bought it to the front of the house, got out to lock up the house, came around the front end of my truck and saw a beautifully colored puddle that smelled so sweet! frown.gif Blew my water pump. But at least it happened in my driveway I guess. Better there than the landing. I guess I needed to do yard work anyways.

      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.
