I am taking my Grandfather to Home Bay Resort on Lower Bottle in 10 days and would like to find a couple of "Hot Spots" to start on. Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My favorite place to fish is sunken island on Lower Bottle. There is also a sunken island on Upper Bottle.

There is also the "big bar", and trolling from Home Bay to the "White House".

There is also a nice point close to Whippoorwill I found this year (thanks Bud!!).

Man, I am drooling (and crying) as I type this crazy.gif

Thanks so much. Just two questions. Which way is the "White House" from Home Bay and where is Whippoorwill? Again thank you very much.

The "White House" I refer to is a small "house" (I'm not sure what it's actual function is) that is just on the other side of Birch Harbor.

Whippoorwill is the resort on Upper Bottle.

Thanks. Is Birch Harbor the little bay on the SW end of Lower Bottle?

No. Birch Harbor is another resort next to Home Bay.

      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.
