shallow eyes

5 posts in this topic

I was fishing this morning, fished crankbaits, zero fish. Whiched to spinners pick-up a couple small walleyes. Saw thing feeding up in the shallows inside the weeds. Thought it maybe bass feeding, using jig-n-minnow cast up shallow, started catching small walleyes 8-10 inches. The was only 3-4 ft. I caught about 10-15 little peanuts some right under the boat. Then i caught a couple 16-18 inchers what surprize. Walleyes that size under boat, the is very cloudy, 1 came in 3ft of water. When launching boat on northwest ramp which out locator claimed only 1ft deep. Chowed the prop

Hey Jimmy, must be nice to fish all the time, are you getting any good at it grin.gifgrin.gif The word is the big crappies or bitting on green lake, least thats what the brothers say. Have you been out on sugar lately, there's nice eyes in there to be caught. Havn't had time to get over there in a couple months, try to get there a couple times after labor day, the walleye fishing is really good late fall wink.gif

Dan, I have been fishing green each weekend for a few hours. Have not tried for crappies, I have been fishing smallies, and catching a few walleyes at the same time. Sunday was windy, made boat control a little tough. I have been fishing jig/minnow for most of my fish. I'm going to some of my fall lakes this week to check water temps. The good bite is just beginning. When is the family trip? We should go hit the river this fall.

I have seen a few nice eyes come out of sugar but that was a few years ago when the water temp is starting to fall just after dark in the shallow points. I was out there once this year and it sucked. To many topwater weeds just flowting around. Line kept getting fowlled up. Been over to clear water and they seem to be staying deep so far. May go back that way this weekend but where suppose to have storms this weekend I guess. Good luck to all.

      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.
