Well it is actualy my son hunting the bait and he is in a ground blind. First night nothing, second night the "rough eared bear" came in (7:50pm) and held up behind a tree (30 yards) without my son seeing him. Son has a cold and coughed not knowing the bear was there, the bear reacted and turned and walked away, son had a shot but did not take a going away shot (good for him) We know all this as he has a video camera set up on a trypod and leaves the camera going, the camera got the bear coming in before he saw it. He would not of had much of a shot anyway but he could have kept from coughingand the bear may have come to the bait. It was a let down for him but an expirence. When we looked at the footage we could see it was the bear we want. Nothing came in tonight but we will be hunting this evry evening.

Thanks for asking Boar! Hopefuly we will post pics of the "rough eared bear" with a smileing boy.

I'll be root'n for you guys, I hope your boy tags him, man that would be a thrill of a lifetime if the young man can tag him. All the best luck to ya guys. Maybe a little cough syrup before the hunt might help. My hardest need to surpress is to clear my throat, especially when it tickles an thats alway at prime time no less. Later boar

Cough syrup may help to keep from scaring "rough ears" again, or you could pick him up a cough suppressor. They really do work pretty well... believe me. I had a really bad hack for years due to some nasal problems, and the only thing I could do to keep from chasing away game was the cough suppressor. Feels odd when you cough into it the first few times, but it's defintely worth the $ & effort. (I think they're about $15 or so, so not terribly expensive, either... )

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.

      There is a tank of leeches over by their water tank. They're stopping by later so they can go fishing. Gotta love our language. HA!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.
