Da Bears!

3 posts in this topic

Hey, I read a report on some bears getting into garbage on a houseboat. Any tips on how to store garbage on a boat while overnight camping. I was suprised that those pesky buggers would climb up there. I would just as soon keep the 200lb racoons away from my stuff when I come up. frown.gif

Whats up? We were told by the houseboat company to keep our FULL garbage bags on the top of the houseboat. We really diden't have much garbage at all, we burned our paper and boxes. I think the sent of the trash and maybe the sent of the grill had something to do with the bear visits. The Park rangers said that this time of year the blueberries are not quite ripe yet and anything other than grass gives the bears much more fat right now. Having said all this, I think our visit was just a one time happening? anyway, it might be good to store all of your trash on the roof of the houseboat.

Both houseboat rental companies make regular complementary delivery runs out onto the lake. Even if you don't need anything, have them stop by and pick up your trash.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
