Area Lakes

4 posts in this topic

Anyone having any success locally for Walleys or Crappies. I have been on Green a few times with some success for Walleys in 30 FoW jigging fathead. They have been on the small side not many over 15 inches. Thinking of trying a few different lakes this weekend.

Try looking shallower for better eyes on Green. Last 2 trips out released 1@26.5, 2@23, 1@21.5 & 1@20. fished from 18' to 24' deep. Best if you stay away from deep water mostly small ones. If all you're catching is 12"-14" dont keep pounding them to get the odd 15" fish. Even if careful to bring fish up slowly from deep water there is a high mortality. Better to keep the small ones you catch and move to look for better fish.

Thanks for the info that is what I have suspected. I would guess when you talk about 18 – 24 ft you are also staying away from the deep areas where everyone else is correct?

Definitely works best to find your own fish away from the masses. Keep looking until you see fish. This time of year you usually can catch what you see.

      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.
