I am sorry to say that we are closing the road to vehicles for now. Only four wheelers and snowmobiles and of course Wilcrafts.

The ice is still good but the landing is deteriating.

Fish On!!!

TRZ,

On Sun. Appledorns had switched the exit off of lake from what I had gone out on to a differenty area. I figured by Mon., they would not be able to drive out anywere at Apple dorns. Water skipping is your only chance, or Wilcraft.

Here are a couple caught by Deitz yesterday:

I'd get up there if I was you. The perching should just keep getting better. Walking or wheeling will get you there.

The weather was something else!!! Wow!. And as you can see there are fish out there to catch! Here are some tips.. Stay mobile. We seemed to do best moving around an area a lot. Go with a 1-2 punch... One larger lure to draw them in, if they dont hit it, then drop a second lure down that will get them. I used a small nills master jiging shad(like a jigging rapala) with a wax worm. And then used a Diamond Jig as my finess lure, with eruolarvae.

Fishermen and Fisherwomen,

Unfortunately, I am in Stevens Point, Wisconsin this week at the Wisconsin Resort and Campground Convention displaying our four season park model rv cabins (www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com).

So I will not be at the resort this weekend. I'll be thinking about the perch fishing though, I can assure you that! Justin or Jon, will be able to help you with your road passes and any details on the roads in the office. Folks, the office is the little cabin with our sign on it as you first pull into Appeldoorn's Resort.

I wish you all luck and hope to see some pictures up here on FM so I can see them out here in Wisconny.

Fish On!!!

      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.
