I don't hunt by Pine City but I have had action on my baits by Bemidji. I started baiting on the first day, had two hits, then four hits, and now I have all six of my baits getting hit. I wasn't planning on that many baits getting hit but hey, better than none. So 6 for 6 as of today. Got some cool pics on my trail camera to. Good Luck.

We've only been hit by one small bear. I too thought that baiting would be great this year with the long hot summer and diminished natural forage, but it appears, at least so far, that "hits" are down significantly from last year for almost everyone. I'm counting on it getting better as the weather cools. Lets' keep our fingers crossed.

9/15 baits going everyday. 3 others are iffy, but for sure bears. Kindoff expected this- as there was NO natural food expect some usual bunchies.

put out 5 baits for the 3 of us last week end, won't be back till sunday, can't wait to see if we have action,

Talked to a guide and his hits has been scattered, but then he's got 70 baits, wished the DNR would limit this

So how close do you guys have baits? We are 100% so far but it took a while for 2 of them to get found. Cannot wait until the phone call tomorrow to hear the results of the last few days.

We have baits that are at least a mile apart. That is on the gps. So the over the ground distance is a lot more and there is significant terrain between.

big walleye 22, where'd you run into the guide, I bumped into one last week by Outing who also said he runs 70 baits, he was a nice guy, but come on, how can that be fair for the average hunter to have to compete with??

Come on DNR, get a clue...

guide I talked to is north of northome, answer to swamp scooter, I try to place my baits no closer as the crow flies than 1 mile, bears will travel for food

So 70 baits would take a HUGE amount of time and gas money to bait to attract different bears. I suppose that some of them are close enough to give the same bears different stands to go to to eat. If they are bumped off of one then the hunter goes to another?

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
