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 haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
