can one of the moderators have a poll of some of the top lakes in the area? don't know how things work like that or not but would be cool to keep a running tally. Opener for me used to be best when I went fishing on the otter tail river and seems like had better luck and didn't need the boat. Opener is just over done seems like. would rather fish a few weeks into it when it aint so dang cold or windy or rainy.

My buddies and I are still on for Mille Lacs... Hope the waves aren't a flyin. May in MN, based on my past 4 years of living here now, leads me to believe that it will be the typical 25 mph wind, 42 degree day with rain showers... smile.gif

Blueberry for me, then maybe Marion or Melissa. At night, I'll hit the shore and fish on foot at some good spots.

Unless these 40 mph wind gusts keep up, I'll be out on East Silent trying the night bite on Sat. I've never been there before so not sure what to really expect. If that doesn't pan out I'll likely be over on one of the Pines, Big C or maybe even Little Mac. Hmm...thinking about this makes me realize I haven't opened on Buffalo for a looong time. That used to be good too.

      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.
