Could'nt take it any more so I scrounged up fifty bucks an orderd a bear ball, alot of money for one item, but if it works as good as they say then I'll be happy. I'm really worried about acorns dropping heavy again, its getting dry like last year when they fell so thick. Havent had time to scope out the mast mnumbers in the oak trees, anyone seeing large numbers of acorn in trees? Hey biff what scent in the ball did you get? I got bacon. Boar

It's funny you posted this beacause my Scent Ball and spray scent came in the mail today. For the scent ball I got blueberry and for the spray scent i got bacon and blueberry. I opened it up and man did it wreak like blueberrys. I am suprise a bear isn't hear now. Hopefully it works. We are running 4 baits this year. I ask my cousin to get one but he didn't. We'll see what happens. 18 days away. On one of my baits I am going to build a crib like you explained earlier. Some thing like 4 square logs and little logs in the middle so the bait doesn't get wet on the ground. I will re-read your post on how to do it.

Hey Biff-Building cribs works great. Get out there early and drag downed timber from around you site so your ready to go when baiting starts. I posted a couple pics of one of my cribs last year in this forum. I'm not sure if they're still up on the site, but I could send them to you if your interested. Just to give you an idea.

I found the photos. They're a little dark, but there is one of the crib just after I rebaited it and one of how the crib looked the next day after the bears had hit it. It's tough to make out in the photo, but it was cleaned out to the ground.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
