Lake Supeiror Herring

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering what people have to say about herring. We were out in front of 21st the last couple of days and caught cohos, smelt, and herring. I'd never caught herring before. They are a pretty neat looking fish and are fun fighters. I have seen them offered in area restaurants but haven't ever kept any myself. Are they a desireable fish to keep for your own table? There seemed to be groups of them cruising through and my nephew figured them out and landed a bunch. I was a little behind the curve.

You'll get a mixed bag out there of herring and whitefish.

You can smoke both. Whitefish are good pan fried too.

If the fish you caught have a mouth under the top lip and short jaw its a whitefish. Herring will have a jaw same length as the top lip. Depending on where your from herring get lumped in with cisco but that not right. There is a difference between the two.

Whitefish or Herring well to me they are fish and fun to catch.. I have been on the phone about what is what and how do you tell them apart well said frank I do not keep that many fish. So if you are out and catch some of these fish take a good look and see if you can tell who is who. I do now they are fun to catch and it beats siten at home wondering if the guys are catching fish out there. I have never met one I did not like to catch grin.gif.

      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.
