logging Companies

This probably isn't the place but I'm not sure where else to look. I'm wondering who are some dependable logging contractors in the area. Looking for a company that cleans up after they are done logging. I have around 10 acres that looking to get logged. Thanks

I'd check with Two Inlets Mill and if they can't do it, they would point you in the right direction. There's another guy not very far west of Dorsett on 18 - I think it's across the road from Deer Lake.

schmoe, I will have to ask my uncle but we had some guys come log our property and they did a very good job cleaning up and piling the brush up where we wanted it. Where is your property at?

10 acres is a pretty small job for a logger to move equipment into. I'd be prepared for getting little to no money off the job unless it's high quality saw logs or has a decent amount of wood on it. If you want a clean site then don't use a logger that limbs in the woods. If they limb at the landing you will have a pile that they may chip or can be burned in the winter. Kimballs and Dick Walsh are the bigger operations but many smaller guys like Manners, Dukek, and many others I can't seem to remember. I can only vouch for Manners - they leave a clean site. I've done some firewood cleanup on county land with a county permit and was the company that did those sites was sloppy. I know who it was but won't bad mouth a business without knowing the circumstances. I got about 8 cords of wood from the skids laying on the ground that were never pulled to the landing!

Well only now are we getting it logged, hopefully we choose the right loggers. Do you know who your loggers where ? Thanks

      Was out on Osakis yesterday evening on some midlake humps using 1/4oz jigs with leeches in the hopes I could find a few cooperative walleyes. I was getting pestered by what I thought were perch stealing my leeches. I'm a slow learner so it took too long for me to finally downsize my presentation until my dozen leeches were nearly gone. I finally downsized to 1/8oz digs and caught fish. It was 10" sunnies that were stealing my bait. Once I figured that out, I grabbed my crappy/sunny rod with a flu-flu jig and proceeded to have a pretty good time catching sunnies. I had a container of crawlers with me and just cut them up to tip the jig. Kept five for a meal but could have easily filled out.    They were near the bottom in 18' of water.

      FishHawk and Depth Raider are your choices as Sub Troll and Canon are no longer manufactured.   If you don't have any of the above your relying what you see on your sounder and for speed your looking at the blow back or the timing of the thump from a Flasher.   Interpreting speed at the ball this way is a guessing game but it works along with varying your speed. It might not tell you a precise speed but you should be slowing and speeding up not matter what method for speed your using.  If you set your speed at 2.5 and stick there all day your probably won't boat as many fish as if you were coming in and out of 2-3 MPH all day.    Would speed and temp at the ball be useful, absolutely. Wouldn't it be nice to know that fish hit at 75' down in 45 degree water at 2.8 MPH.   Maybe you it was on a speed up or down when it hit too.

      Seems just fine but I'm not big on eating out and I don't drink anymore so I'm not a frequent flyer of any establishment 
    • delcecchi
      We are?  I hadn't noticed any such activity.      So, how do you like the new reconstituted Landing?   
    • trumy
      Just curious what any posts on this page have to do with the landing? I really don't care but some of you are sure quick to point out when posts get off the intended subject 
    • delcecchi
      Good to know.  Didn't know that they had boats.

      Went out of agate in 2 harbors on Saturday from about 8 am to 2 pm after missing the last couple weekends (family vaca). Tough bite. Had 1 short strike on the rigger at 50' with a spoon and 1 screamer hit a tail dancer long lined on a board (must've been a pretty good sized steelie as I've never seen a board disappear behind the boat like that before). Unfortunately it came unpinned. 0 for 2 in 6 hrs of fishing. Tried depths from 20 to 70, tried plugs, spoons, flies, etc. Talked to another gent at the dock and they managed 14. Really love hearing that when you come off defeated and someone out in the same area doing mostly the same things lights them up.   Looking at getting a fishhawk x2 to try and find the thermocline and get on the fish faster. Anyone have experience with the down temp/speed devices on the market and are they a must have like I've heard from some?

      Excellent Skunked, I'll give them a call

      PSU - call the boat graveyard in Shakopee, right next to Valley Fair. It's called Twin City Outboard. I once went in looking for a replacement lower unit for a 3hp 1957 Johnson Seahorse. I was happy when the guy said they had it. When I got there, the guy brought out a box of them so that I could look them over and get the right color! They've got a lot of boats too. Cool place to visit and look around.
