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.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
