This Coming Weekend

4 posts in this topic

Greetings,

We plan on fishing Red Lake this weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions for finding fish. We are mainly looking for Crappies. I am also interested in the Walleye bite. Any help on location, bait, presentation, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Get way out by yourself, away from eeryone else and be portable, move around. Red and Green glow seems to be the deal. Good Luck

Wow, what a weekend! We had great weather for the most part and the fishing was good. We easily got our Walleye limit and ended up with 26 Crappies. This was my first time catching URL Crappies, they are HUGE!! We even had a couple smaller ones which is good to see. We were out on the lake about 8 or 9 miles from Hilmanns. Seemed like 5:30pm-6:30pm was the best time to catch the Crappies. I don't think it mattered where you fished Walleye, they were biting everywhere.

Had a good trip, look forward to next time.

      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.
