I did not fish boxell this year at all, but it will give up small crappies galore over the first big hole just east of the road. You won't be too far from the hillside (fairly steep as you look at it and drops into deep water quickly)

Couple of years ago I was out there at sunset with waxies. Put the bait down..BAM. bring it up, unhook, and back down.. BAM. It was the fastest crappie action I have ever had. There are so many little ones in there that I think they might be a bit stunted.

Good luck

Steve

we were fishing in 18-22 ft on the edge of a drop that goes to 40', have not tried for sun fish but I hear there is slabs in there, the DNR asks that if you get into the slabs to only take a few and put the rest back, good luck and may see you out there.

We've caught fish there during the day, but it is nowhere near as fast as dusk.

22 feet sounds about right for depth.

      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.
