Coming up to Winnie June 16th, staying at 4 Seasons. What will be my best options for "eyes"? Also, is there any crappie hot spots on Winnie?

Awesome! Hopefully the Hatch won't be in force or just after a Hatch... frown.gif

If ya have a good boat that can handle some waves if they come up, I'd hit the string of Bena/Long/Muskie/Eelpout Bars etc.

I would also hit the Humps in the Northwest section of Winnie.

Use a Leech or maybe a Crawler.

Crappies: Eh - they roam around in Winnie - saw big schools of 2-4 Lb'ers (Yes) while Spearing, but good luck targeting them. Maybe around Sugar or Ravens...

Hope that helps...

I'll be up June 4-6 also...

Yes, they will be on the bars, but some will be in the 7-9' range also.

Good luck!

      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.
