Recommended Posts

Early on there was talk about using fish as an attractant, an the pros an cons of it. The pro being stinky the con being rotten. I work with a guy that loves trapping an lives for trapping. an was paging thru his trappers supply catalog an it kinda slapped me in the face. There it was, all kinds of fish oil, salmon oil, crayfish oil, an so on. Then i came across cherry oil, loganberry oil, carmel oil, beaver oil that was hand squeezd from the glands, Anis oil an just loads of attractans for trappers. These oils an attractants are very concentrated in which they sell buy the 4oz bottle to pints an gallons. Now All i could think about was getting my hands on some concetrated fish oil an mixing that with fryer grease an soaking up the site, oh boy! If you google fur trapper supply or something like that I'm sure you'll find something, or Ill find the catalog he gave me. Later boar

A lot of hunting tapes I've watched from Canada show a big ole beaver hanging from a a tree. Most bears went straight to it and tore off a big ole chunk of beaver.

Anything containing the scent of beaver will get licked, chewed, and pounded by any respectable bear in the woods.

There's many an old boar that's gotten himself in a heap of trouble over just the scent of a fresh beaver.

Just don't walk thru the woods with the scent on your hands. You might get an unpleasant surprise if a big boar sneaks up behind you.

Well put canopy sam. But sometimes you leave the cabin with your hands smelling like beaver and just don't think about it untill you wipe you face and get a reminder that you were handling beaver. Could be a costly mistake.

Hey, I sense there may an undertone suggesting something other than baiting bear here? Who said anything about wives? I'm strictly talking about using beaver trapping scent for attracting a bear.

I suppose my wife would transform into a raging sow bear if she were to smell another beaver on my hands! How embarassing would that be? blush

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
