CALVINIST-

We were up there over New Years and caught some brutes. We talked to a guy who had a cabin on the lake and he said he fished more toward the little island straight out from the access and there are also some people who fish the weeds in the channel between the two basins! Not sure what depth, but I believe there is a little break when you work your way toward the island from where you were fishing! If you can't find them in these two places, I wouldn't be afraid to try the deeper water again. Before today, the weather hasn't done anything different then it does in January! Let us know how you do!

The person you talked to was probably Don. In the channel it only gets about 10ft in the middle. His buddies spear in the channel. Most northerns in the lake would fit between the forks in the spear. lol I'm going up the first week of April for some cabin building/fishing.

What about the dead heat of summer? I've done okay, but haven't found the behemoths I'm targeting for CPR. Any depth tips? My search lures lose their effectiveness in deep water, maybe that was my problem. I have some ideas of new places I'd like to try. I wish my sonar was a little newer too for marking fish.

      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.
