Few June Questions 16-23

7 posts in this topic

First off want to say hi this site is very good ive been reading a lot of the old posts good way to get some information. I was just wondering what your guys favorite lure choices are for this time of year so i can start loading up the tackel box. We'll be fishing walleyes first, then go after some snakes. Last time i was at Winne i still used a Snoopy pole but remember catching huge panfish. Staying at Williams Narrows if you want to include your favorite spots on the water for this time of year i wont mind wink.gif I was also wondering how hard is it to find the mid lake humps?

you could be rigging the humps and bars or jigging them with a shiners if there is some left or there will be some fish at the emerging weeds but I htink your best bet will be minnows or leeches out deep

Lots depends on the weather and water temps, if there still hitting jigs try these along the weed edges

Rainbow, Parrot, Bubblegum, Watermelon, and Parakeet all work. Day to day they may prefer one over the other so carry some of each with you if one dosen't do the trick switch colors

I'm staying at the Winnie Dam Federal campground on June 14th to the 16th. I haven't fished Winnie since I was about 10 years old, so I'm really looking forward to it.

      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.
