Sturgeon Excursion 2007 Recap

5 posts in this topic

If you cancelled your plans due to the weather forecast

you missed a great couple of days on the water.

Sometime over night Friday 4 or 5 miles of ice flow

vanished. Open water fishing began in 4 Mile Bay and the

Sturgeon were present and biting. Fishing was good at

Baudette and Clementson also, the biggest fish seemed to

be in the Clementson area but good numbers of these fish

were caught by all attending.

It was good to see the FM bigwigs Rick, Paul, Chris,

some new fishing friends from the forum and some of the

group you can count on to travel to these event like IFF


Watch for more pics and hopefully some video soon on this

very website.

A very good time.........

Hi Curt,

Sounds like a great time was had by all who attended.

I sure wish I would have been able to attend this

event. But I will be making it up this coming weekend.

Hopefully the sturgeon will cooperate, as we will have a couple of sturgeon virgins with. I was wondering where

would be some places to try other than the bay. I am looking to try some other areas this year. Any info you could give would be greatly appreciated. Your can e-mail me at sxviper316@ yahoo((Contact Us Please)) com if you would like.

The fish are everywhere. The Bay is a real hotspot but if

you want to travel up river Clementson is real good and

the area around Baudette is also good. You can catch them

right out in front of River Bend, Sportsmans, Border View,

even the boat landing.

I am back up for more this weekend too. It ought to be

even better!

Thanks Curt,

Hopefully I will see you up there.

We will Be in a black 2010 Pro Guide with

a 175 Opti. I loved running one last year so much, I

had to break down and buy my own this year. Hopefully

I wont put her on a log on her first fishin trip.

      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, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
