Eye Action

Anyone found that the fall bite is really starting to pick up yet on our local lakes?

I thought I might try a day this week if they are ready to play fast and hard.

From what I've experienced over the last two weeks, the day time fish are still making you work for it. You're best shot for steady action will be an hour before and after sundown. If I was picking a lake right now, it would be Sakatah. smirk.gif

Madison has had a strong walleye bite around sundown, but it only lasts for aprox 45 mins.

Where can I put my boat in on Sakatah other than at the state park? I tried the launch in Waterville back in July but it was closed. Can I get there from Tetonka, I have a 17 1/2 foot boat. If I launch at the state park do I have to be off the water by a certain time when it closes.

The ramp in Waterville is open I just put my 19' Pro-V in on Sunday. You can also access Sakatah from Tetonka. Be careful the forst bridge tends to break 10' rods shocked.gif

Heading out somewhere tonight, not sure where yet!

So a 17 1/2 foot boat can get through the HWY 13 bridge that goes over Sakatah?

Not only the Hwy 13 bridge, it can make it under the two bridges in town on the Cannon river. Between the two lakes.

      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.
