tearin' lips

I know this is short notice because we are heading there this afternoon as a spur of the moment type deal...but does anyone know much about this lake? The reason why I picked it is because its close to town and its small size will be easy to litter with holes and work. It looks like it has a nice mix of fish too...I will give a report when I get back.

Any info for future reference would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Good Luck Fishing!!

      Want to improve your wooded acreage for wildlife?  Early winter is a good time to begin planning woodland projects because there aren’t ticks, mosquitoes or deep snow. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has specially trained foresters – called stewardship foresters – around the state who can help. They can meet you on your property, assess tree health, and help you find the right programs to meet your woodland goals. About half of Minnesota’s forested land and woodland wildlife habitat belongs to private landowners. Improving habitat for deer or grouse is often the primary reason woodland owners seek advice from a forester. DNR stewardship foresters can provide advice on completing small projects such as creating trails and wildlife openings, removing invasive shrubs and what trees to replant. Cost-share funds are currently available in some areas of northeastern Minnesota to help landowners complete woodland management projects. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis and unused funds expire in June 2019. In northeastern Minnesota, the following stewardship foresters are available to work with private landowners: Alex Brothen, Brainerd area, 218-203-4428. Troy Holcomb, Aitkin area, 218-429-3025. Thor Pakosz, Duluth and North Shore area, 218-723-4791. Amber Jungwirth, Hibbing area, 218-231-8026. Josh Donatell, Grand Rapids area, 218-328-8912. Steven Horndt, Tower area, 218-300-7826. Ben West, Littlefork area, 218-278-6651. Landowners who have 20 or more acres—on which at least 10 acres has or will have trees— may want to consider a Woodland Stewardship Plan. A Woodland Stewardship Plan assesses what is in your woods, suggests how to improve the woods, and outlines when to do work. Having and following a plan also can help qualify your woods for reduced property taxes or financial incentives. “Managing your land doesn’t always mean having a large harvest,” said Troy Holcomb, Aitkin area stewardship forester. “Woodland management is all of the things you do to keep your woods healthy and beautiful.” More information about the DNR’s forest stewardship program and contacts for stewardship foresters in other parts of Minnesota are available at www.mndnr.gov/foreststewardship.

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.
