Lake Frances is pretty good for pike in the winter

Ya, but Frances has a stunted population of pike in it so finding a big gator is gonna be tough. Another lake that would be a good choice is Tetonka or Sakatah. Lots of gators in there and the water is clear enough to spear in. Elysian has a bunch of pike in it but I am not sure about the clarity of the water out there. Just a few of the many choices in the area.

There are a few guys that spear on Clear. Not sure how clear it is but Good Luck trying to spear out there!! I will also agree that German and Jefferson have some BIG GATORS it those waters and your odds are better for spearing one!! I've jabbed a few tanks out there!!

Lkae Rhomhildts can kick out some nice pike in the winter, its past German a little ways, its really small, very deep and clear and has very little pressure for the most part. Probally not alot of big fish, but some nice onces in the 3-5 lb range.

      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.
