Memorial weekend

2 posts in this topic

Gentlemen

This is my 1st post to this forum. I've read a lot of good info here over the past year or so, and since I'll be back up there in a couple of weeks, I decided to chime in. I've houseboated on Rainy a few times over the years, so I know how huge the lake is. This year, we'll be heading to Anderson Bay in order to access the trails to Peary. I'm wondering if anyone fishes near there. We usually look for walleye and pike or maybe smallies. Any advice for fishing this area would be appreciated. I would assume movement is the key in finding the walleyes this time of year. Also, does anyone know how long it would take me to get back to the Rainy Lake houseboat launch in a 17ft Lund Pro Sport?

Thanks in advance

Memorial Day weekend you should find walleyes shallow and deep. Smallies should still be fairly shallow - 5-15'. Pike are all over the place but I'd be looking in 10-20' and adjacent to deeper water. Watch the reports as we get closer to the time.

From Anderson Bay to RLHB you're looking at approximately 25-30 miles so it depends on your boat speed and whatever wind you have to deal with.

      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.
