Bruin sighted mid-day!

CANOPY SAM

While in route to a baseball tourney yesterday, driving thru a very familiar area, I spotted what I initially thought was a big black Angus wandering across a CRP field - not pasture land. I even turned to my wife and said, "Look, I wonder how that old girl got out." My wife then said to me, rather shouted, "That's a bear!"

We pulled over and watched an absolutely gorgeous 350+ lb. boar just amble lazily around this tall CRP for about 10 minutes - at 12:05 p.m. with high sun and temps in the mid-80's! It should be noted that there was a bee yard in the area, so I'm sure this old fella had a snoot full of something he couldn't resist.

Just to let you know, Boar, he was only a few miles east of your stompin' grounds! This one would make a beautiful rug bear! Hope he finds his way to your bait stations!

Exciting to see one like that mid-day. My 83 yr. old Mom, and 9 yr. old son were along, and it was their first time seeing a large wild bear. Very cool!

What I found particularly interesting was how full-coated and beautiful this animal was, despite all the heat we've been having recently. Really makes me wanna get back into bear hunting again.

Had a pretty good sized one on my trail camera at 1pm 4 days ago. Jerk was trying to wreck it

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?

      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
