Bear Island Lake?

7 posts in this topic

I'm going up to this lake for the first time for the week before Labor Day. I'm not new to walleye fishing by any means, but am wondering what the ticket is for catching some walleyes this time of year up there. I'd seriously appreciate any help with colors, bait, etc. Could maybe even provide a beer or two to someone willing to show the way?

If you did not like what he had you would have to make the long walk from the bait shop to the bottle shop. What is it 15 or 20 steps.

I'm just a Miller Lite guy, but the better the tip, the better the beer. I read somewhere over the weekend that crawlers were working up there now?

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
