Fishing report 10/06/06

10 posts in this topic

Well the plans to hit Mille Lacs Friday night after work fell appart due to the howling wind. Instead I went to the ROCORI footbal game and headed to Koronis afterwards. The wind was much more manageable there. We found water temps to be very consistent at around 55.7 degrees. We had steady fishing throughout the night. Lots of 15-22" walleyes and several pike as well. For those looking for shore fish opportunuties they eyes are up shallow in current areas. We saw lots of them with the floodlight in less than a foot of water.

Good Luck!

Borch, you are to quiet. That can only mean one thing, your hitting the walleyes on Koronis hard. So, are you getting them before dark or chasing them up shallow at night?

Well I'm getting some fishing in. But after a house fire this summer my time has been pretty limited.

Like most the area lakes there's a good but not spectacular bite on Koronis. If you put your time in you'll catch some fish. wink.gif

Come on guys!

I had some company out on the lake last night so I know I'm not the only one getting out to fish in the past few days. Fish are going good on several central mn bodies of water right now. For me last night fishing was pretty good. Caught my biggest eye so far this year. A very fat 28 1/2" piggy. Man, the fish pack on the weight this time of year. All catch and release last night as the bigger fish were up putting on the feedbag. I only caught two keepable fish in the 15-20" range. Water temps were around 54.5 degrees.

I also noticed a few large rafts of divers on the local lakes. It should just continue to get better both with a rod or a gun in hand.

How are other folks doing?

Borch, what are you using? Are guys working the rocks around the islands? Will be out on Koronis Sunday the 15th. It could be the last open water trip of the year. I want to make it a good one.

Thanks

I was out Friday for a couple of hours and fished the islands. That was about the roughest water I've been on. Major rollers out there. I did manage to catch a decent nothern trolling. The wind was so strong I couldn't tell if it was the wind blowing my rod or a hit when live baiting.

Guys are working the center flats, windmill point, stonegate point, the islands and just about every shoreline.

Good Luck Sunday. It's a duck hunting and housework weekend for me. I'm heading up north for a fishing trip over MEA. I'll definitely make a few more trips though around St. Cloud before ice up.

      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.
