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.

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.  
    • gunner55
      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.

      If I have where you are right then lake Nokomis is near you. There’s lots of good walleye and crappie in there. If not I might suggest Medicine lake. There’s a handful of shore areas to fish and some easy to access kayakable areas. Lots of northerns and panfish in that lake. Look for weed edges and either cast spoons, spinnerbaits, etc for pike or bobber and work for panfish. Also some bonus walleye in there from time to time. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Wild trout are more cautious, and basically smarter. I rarely do well with flashy or bright lures on streams with wild trout. But when I fish designated trout lakes up north, it usually doesn’t matter what color I use. But I’ll give the flashy stuff a slight edge.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Went wading on the upper croix today. Started at my secret spot, but high water made it tough to get around. Fish were fairly active though. Caught 5 decent bass and a little pike. Zipped up to highway 70 bridge and gave that a try. Caught 2 really nice walleyes here. But like the other spot, high water made wading not possible. Might come back here with my boat though 🤔

      I just moved to Minnesota, I live in Maplewood and looking for somewhere near by to fish for catfish from the shore. Any suggestions?
    • ANYFISH2
      Nice to trip for the family it looks like. A round home here in central MN, the fish are very much in that phase of,    Bass- they are three phase right now, some are post spawn, some are spawning and on beds, other are still pre-spawn and staging.  Nice that most tactics can work on a single lake but each day is different.   Panfish are similar, most fish are still staging but alot of males are shallow and some beds are being swept.   Pike-have been all over the board here.  I have figures out a great system yet.   Walleye- are still preferring shiners and other minnows right now.  Leeches have not really produced well with the exception of the river bite.  Most fish still biting in less than 16ft of water.   Water temps- continue to be very lake dependent.  I have been seen 60-65 degrees on most smaller lakes and the bigger 2000 acre lakes I am seeing from 55-60 degrees main lake.

      Sounds like you got your money’s worth!   I hunted 3 afternoons in the C season is all, due to being too busy with work and projects or too tired/lazy to get up in the morning.  Didn’t take any time off work to chase with all the COVID stuff going on.  The bird I did get was one one the easiest birds I’ve ever taken on the first day of the last season.     I guess what I’m saying is you EARNED that bird and should rightfully be proud!
