Iwas wonderin the same thing, cause I'm headin up their from the 18th-22. wdgold how did you do? We'er headin up for a family thing and stayin on Cross. I'm the only serious fisherman outta the bunch, but they always want to go out. And they expect me to find the fish for them! I've been on these lakes alot at a buddies cabin, but we usually just drink all day and night. Or maybe some of you local guys could steer me in the right direction? I'm a very respectful fisherman and I'm not lookin for anything to specific, just what lakes and depths to be searchin. I love chasin 'eyes, but panfish info would be great to. Thanx.

P.s. I just broke my hand and got a cast up to my elbow. Hopefully they are bitin on a jiggin pattern, cause that is about all I'll be able to do!

I am also with you guys, will be staying on upper whitefish this weekend. Can any one help us? I am looking for some general walleye tips, specifically depth and structure. I usually don't have a problem with the Bass and Pike, but those Walleyes are tough. In the past I have caught them mostly right at sunset and after dark. Just wondering if daytime walleye fishing will be worth my time.

One of our guides was up there this a.m. and did fairly well. He said they ended up keeping 9 walleyes and caught quite a few northerns. I have been on Gull about everyday, so I didn't even ask where or what depth. I am 99% ceratin he was rigging with redtails. If I had to guess, I would say Upper in 18-22 feet.

Good luck,

Walleyedan

      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.
