Although i have not been out to chester as of late i can tell you what happened last year about this time. The fish (bass) were going bananas on topwater in the morning and the after that bite slowed down you could catch them nearly every cast on something big and ugly (spinnerbait/x-rap) it was such a good time. Best luck to you, ike

I hope something bites. I am taking my 4-6 year old out in my boat Fri. To the experts out there where should I go for some sunnies or anything to keep the kiddo's busy. I see by the map that there is three fingers and the dam. Without giving up your hot spots what area should I target 1st?

I was out at Chester last Sat. The fishing was excellent. I had a lot of luck across from the beach by the trees in the water and also some amazing luck if you keep going east of the beach and in far end of the "finger". It gets really shallow in there, but the sunnies are amazing. They were as big as my hand, and the bobber went down as soon as the bait hit the water. Good Luck. Nightcrawlers were the ticket.

      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.
