Sucker Run On The Cannon?

7 posts in this topic

I drove through morristown today and stopped at the dam, I seen some fish trying to jump up the falls. At first I thought they were carp, but they were too dark and skinny and long. So I'm assuming the suckers are starting to run up the river? How much longer until the white bass are running? Man, I wanted to have a fishing pole with me so bad! It looked very promising to wet a line, especially after I spooked some fish along the shoreline...either sunnies or small stripers.

I wouldn't doubt if those were northerns that you were seeing! I can remeber that last year when the ice was coming off the lakes the gators were attempting to up the falls! I wasn't sure what they were at first but I went up to check it out and they were indeed pike! I have been catching some real nice ones since the ice came off (two days ago) on smelt in areas with current coming into the lakes!

Hopefully you were doing this in S.D. where I assume the season is still open? Anyway, I guess they could've been small ones. I never got a good look at them, but they were dark with orangish fins. And this is the time of year they are spawning.

      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.
