I had the pleasure of taking my father and son up to URL and stayed in one of Kelly's houses. The fish house was excellent, and I thought he was considerate to come by every once in a while to check up us. I would definetely love to come up again.

We only caught two crappies, a few 10-12" large perch, however, caught and landed about 60 walleyes (We kept a daily tab for bragging purposes.) We did not leave the fishhouse like was recommended...perhaps, when my dad is not with us so as not to leave him alone. The camera revealed alot less fish during the daylight hours, so we tried to flash and pound them in with various jigs and rattling type lures. That attracted enough fish which hit the minnows under bobbers. Our main action occured at night. We are night owls anyways so that worked out good. If you can stay up we got into ALOT of fish during three main time periods. 12:00-1:30AM, 2:00-3:00AM, and 5:00-6:00AM. What we did was turn our drags down all the way, until the line pulled out easily , and listened for the drag to work in our sleep. Both crappies were caught in the middle of the night, as were the perch. I didn't expect that. Anyways, we had a great time and will be back!

      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.
