Story of the terminator perch

4 posts in this topic

Tues night a bud and I found a few perch for the pan, we had biked into a spot and ended up with 6 keepers. We get done fishing at about 8:15, grap our stringer of perch and head home. Back at the truck I tell him to take those fish home(cuz I caught them all grin.gif) if he wants and he's like, sure! Anyways, he must have forgot and fast forward the next morning at 9am. I'm ready for work but figure I'll take my rods out of the truck - and lo and behold there are the perch still in the bed of the truck. Thank goodness it was cool that night. I ran them back inside, downstairs to my utility sink and ran some cold water in. I thought I saw movement on one and eventually he actually flopped. I'm thinking nerves or something. Well I get home at 5:30 and that bugger is alive and well! I had a hard time catching him in that tub! I felt bad slicin him up since he was such a trooper. But anyways, 12 hours out of water and he made er - almost! wink.gif

I had 6 crappies in a bucket of snow for at least 18 hours and they spent a few hours on the ice before then, went to clean them and they were all still alive and fresh. Weird.

You have to be careful eating fish like that.

I hear the fillets of those terminator fish can survive chewing and digestion. If you're not careful you'll have an un dead fish fillet living inside you and it will want out one way or another.

      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.
