This is Gordy from Oskosh, Wisconsin with a 437lb. Black bear taken while guided by Outdoors with Jonny P & Waskish Minnow Station.

Its time to check baqck in with Jonny P and see how the bear season is going. And GOING it is! While I had him on the ohone I also was able to bend his ear about the up coming Grouse season as well. Good luck this weekend to all my archer frends and small game hunter. And any youth out there taking advantage of the early waterfoul season, I hope you have a blast.. Literaly!

One thing I have to say is Gordy along with the rest of his Wisconsin based hunting party did a great job in some tough conditions. They dealt with super hot temps, high winds and thunderstorms rolling through nightly. By having the ability to adapt to the tough conditions along with accepting to to try a few things out of the norm for bear hunting they were rewarded accordingly. Not to mention the ability to keep a cool head and not even think of shooting while sow after large sow worked the baits under them. Truly shows that even Packer fans can be great stewards of the resource.

We have also had another large boar taken by a rifle hunter, we have yet to get the officail weight on this animal but we do have the picture.

Nice job guys. Congratulations, awsome bear. I'm still working at it. Whent in last night, the crib has been rocked for the last five, six days, baited up, set the crib, an set into stand, cold drizzly evening. Nothing showed. Whent in about 6:45 this morning, the crib was opened up through out the night, I reset an burned some bacon to try an intice him back in for breakfast, sat for three hour an no show. Dang nocturnal bear. tonight I'm gonna start pulling bait at sundown for four five day to see if I can turn him. Again congrats, on those awsome bear, Boar

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
