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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
