It measured about 20.5 inches, but the gut looked like it swallowed a softball. It had to be 6 lb. Carp, I caught it on a black Booyah spinner with a gold curly tail plastic trailer. The worst part of the day was putting up with Cybe's whining tongue.gif! Actually Mike did a nice job taking snapshots, they turned out great!

Wow, very nice! Was she able to pull your tube around?

Im not even going to ask for a lake name but it looks pretty wooded, does it have a public access? I seriously contemplated getting a float tube this year so I could fish a few of the small lakes around my house without a public access.

It was on a small metro lake, no P.A. And yeah, it is fun going for a ride with a big one on in the tube. Usually they just spin you around a couple times.

Thanks Buzz, but no replica for the green carp. She was fun to CPR though. Did you ever get out on saturday? I was lookin' for your e-mail, but figured you got busy with something else. No biggie, we'll get out some other time. You do hard water fishing?

I didn't get out Saturday, I thought it was going to be crappy weather and made other family plans and we had people over for a group BBQ in the afternoon. I do the Ice fishing thing, however I'm not diehard into it. We'll have to hook up again hopefully before the boat goes into storage!

      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.
