Well overdalimit, you should be having a sleepless night counting walleye trying to get to sleep with the excitement of the opener just hours away. I envy you, as I have to keep this fever in check for another 4 wks, you can only clean the boat, check the supply list and test the motor so many times. I will be heading to Lake erie this weekend to hold me over, but its just not the same as the scenery and relaxation the Kab/Nam bring to the table. Good luck this weekend and be safe.

I know the feeling. Can't fish this weekend, I am on call. Going to VNP on the 22nd. It can't get here fast enough. MAYBE next weekend I can get out on the St Louis and hook a few to calm my excitement.

You aint a kiddin' couldn't sleep last night! I was awake until at least 1:30 (went to bed at 10:00). I will be thinking of you guys and I appreciate the sentiments. Got to load the truck and wait for my fishing partners.

I just got home. Had a great time! Lots of fish were caught and the majority were between 19 and 26 inches! We personaly took 1 keeper 16 1/2 inch walleye and 2 more that had to go back cause they were too big, but we stopped fishing at around 7:00 pm. Our friends came in at around 9:00 pm with 13 keeper fish! Go shallow with a jig and a minnow.

      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.
