Got my first bear last Thursday. After almost three weeks of watching sows with cubs, and little boo boos every night, finally had this guy show up. Thanks to everyone on the forum for sharing tips. It was very helpful to a first time bear hunter. Only eight short years til I can do it again wink

200 and change. Wasn't the big boy I had hitting the bait earlier, but the ol trigger finger was getting mighty itchy. My daughter should draw a tag next year so hopefully she'll get a crack at him.

Got my first bear a week ago tonight. A sow a little shy of 200 pounds, didn't get an exact weight on her.

Not the best pic, the friend taking the pics, was having some trouble with the camera & it was dark when we recovered her. Actually didn't get many good pics as when I headed for home in the morning there was nobody to help me load her so I didn't dare take her down & put her on the grass for better pics. When I got home it was getting so hot I was worried about getting her caped & butchered. I have a kill site pic of just the bear that's a good pic, but it's pretty bloody.

Stopped by to show my wife & she took some tailgate pics, but they're too big & I don't know how to shrink them.

She started breaking into the bait shed in the yard, had to wait for her there. Two days in the middle of the week, with nobody around & the pickup hidden behind the cabin. Not exactly your textbook bear hunt...

I would guess over 300# I'm pretty sure its cinnamon. There were 3 bears coming into this bait, the hunter shot the black bear in the picture above this one.

Better late than never, Biff. Nice to see a bear again! This past season was a blast for me. Not there when I was there, but the cameras don't lie! Looking forward to next years hunt for my son! Congrats on your bear, quite an achievement with a bow!

No one has shot a bear yet this year?  Heard the berry crop was very good.

      Agreed, the eyes didn’t look healthy and didn’t have much spunk, even for walleyes.  We caught some off the dock fishing leeches under floats in about 8-9 fow.   Lots of boats out!  I don’t visit Mille Lacs much so I don’t know if the memorial crowd was more than usual but I have a feeling it wasn’t.  Except for the rain showers that moved through we could count anywhere from 45 -100 boats from the dock at any given time.

      My brother was up there on Sunday with the Nephew and had a 70 fish day. He said most were 18 to 21 inches with a few 22 23's and 24's mixed in. Think they also got a few 25 and 26ers. Leech's lindy rigging off Agate reef and Half moon deep side 21 ft plus.

      Did some Crappie fishing in the area over the weekend the bite was on. Grandson had a blast. Wife also had a good day fishing for once. They were some very nice sized fish. Plain hook and minnow and ice fishing teardrop lures in green did the trick with minnow. One day plain hook ruled next day green jigs did.

      Some nice Catfish down further towards Pokegama also.

      In my 15+ years of ownership, I have never seen boat traffic like we had in Black Bay over the week/weekend. During the week there were 5-10 boats and each day while this weekend there were 20-30 boats from morning-to-night hunting crappies. There was no hot spot, just boats everywhere.    When I finally went home last night after 1.5 weeks up, I noted that someone backed their trailer into the dock at The Landing. The rubber bumper was hanging off. It must have been a hoot to sit around watching all of the boats going in and out.

      No one has any advice?
    • SkunkedAgain
      We were accidentally finding them on beds near shore. Tried to avoid pulling them off of course.

      So, I gave up on eyes this weekend.  Figured it was time for a change.     I fished for Crappie, they were much more willing to bite.  They are mostly all shallow, 2-4'.  I caught them on minnows and tube jig.  I just scanned the shallows looking for schools.     Funny thing, I was fishing the Edgeton Rd Bridge, caught a solid 9" gill, then next cast something picked up my tube, I set the hook, I see a bright white belly turn, and the jig popped out.  I guess the issue with a tiny jig and a ultra light rod.  I think it was a 24'ish  walleye.  Next cast I stuck a 14" walleye.  Then two dudes in bass boats came chugging along at about 6mph with their motor trimmed to high hell and stirred everything up.  Thought that was nice of them.     So, I also did see a large grouping of blue gill beds on the main sand flat on Horseshoe.  Only a few bites.  I could see fish in them with SI.  Also tried weed edges for gill in about 9-10', and just dinks.  Threw a crawler at the shore, and started hammering 8-9" gills.     So fish can be caught, just have to try and figure out what they want.  With more consistent weather should come a better bite.

      Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....
    • ozzie
      We decided to not hit up the chain and go to another lake in the area...we found a few eyes in the 13-15 foot range on Saturday mid morning and then came back in the evening and landed one more.  Went back out the next morning and didn't find anything!  Just when we thought we found a bite...will be back up this weekend for golfing and maybe a session or 2 fishing.
