shore fishing

5 posts in this topic

Ive lived in the area now for going on 4 years and since i have lived here i have gone fishing ZERO times. Growing up I had a pole in my hand every weekend. I have a 3 year old step son who I would like to introduce fishing to. I dont own a boat and was wondering if anyone would give me some areas where I could take him for some panfish from shore. Actually any place that has some decent fishing from shore, does not need to be panfish I guess. If anyone can help me out, id appreciate it, thanks.

Try the bridges by Fish and Island Lakes ,,rock bass and pan fish frequent the areas there along with an ocasional bigger fish ,,just keep your lines clear of the channel when boats want to go thru ,,,Good Luck

All I can say is trial and error... Just experiment and test out different locations until you find one that works for you.

For sunnies you can't beat Chub lake in Carlton. They don't get big but you can catch(or at least a while back you could) a ton of the little buggers.

if you are just looking to catch fish to keep kids entertained, then go to the rice lake (Contact Us Please) and catch all the rockbass you want.

      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.
