Special Thanks to Bear Paw Guide Service

3 posts in this topic

I just wanted to say thanks to Bear Paw guide service. I called last minute sunday morning looking for a day house for that day. They were full. I told the gentleman I spoke with that I was hoping to get my 3 year old boy, my 6 year old girl and my wife on some fish. Even though his houses were full, he told us a spot to try since we had a portable. We started fishing at 1pm and fished until 6pm. We ended up with 50 -60 walleyes according to my 6 year olds "tally" sheet. The kids had an absolute ball pulling in all those fish. I unfortunatley never did get your name but thanks again and you will be my first call when looking for a rental house in the future.

It was probably Steve, if not his son Tyler. You are correct he is a very helpful and accommodating man. I have gotten to know him from many trips up to Red in both summer and winter and he is always willing to point me to a hot bite. He has also been able to give me deals when I come up for work by myself on rentals. The smallest he has got is a 3-man and Steve was able to compromise and charge me less than what he normally gets for a 3-Man. From my personal experience Kelly and Jon P., Hillmans, and Bear Paw are all good people.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
