I love hearing the stories. I have a good one for you. We were watching a big bear on the trail camera for the week prior to hunting. Head in at 2:00 to hunt on opening day. I climb in my stand and my father-in-law puts in some bait and changes the card in the trail camera. I sit until about 5:15 and don't see anything. Then a little cub comes in and starts eating. All of a sudden there is a noise to my right and the cub takes off running. I see a good bear coming in from the right. Let it get to the bait and take it down. I thought for sure it was the big one. Find out it is a nice 250 lbs sow. Get back to camp and they tell me that the big one was in my bait pile 3 minutes before we came in. Knew i should have hunted earlier. oh well, never be mad that i got one though.full-6457-981-2010bear.jpg

57 thats a huge bear good luck with him. We had the same problem with the rain and baits not getting hit hit until opener. Then my buddy and I both had bears in. Its funny, talked to other camps and they said their baits were getting smashed every night. Boar, hope to see the pics soon good job. I need to find a good spot in no quota, loved to have a chance at two bears. Good luck the rest of the season. Longline how old do you think she was?

Not sure on the age of her. I don't think it was that cubs mom since she chased away the cub out of the bait so she could eat. I assumed it was the big boar that we had been watching on the camera the way the cub got scared out of there. If it was the cubs mom i feel really bad, we try not to shoot sows with cubs. Only good thing would be that the cub wasn't one of this year.

For you wouldnt it just be easy as shooting another. Just thinking if a person got drawn for a quota zone and had good access to property on no-quota, woundnt it be possible for a three bear year. Now that would be awesome. Man this bear hunting is addictive!

So if I shoot a bear in the qouta zone, could I then shoot 2 more in a no-qouta zone? Our hunting shack is in the no-quota zone. If I tag the one I have thought of trying it down at the hunting shack. Still have bait to use.

Boar, what is your thought, should I chance getting out late after work or keep working the bear until the weekend? Or any one else that has thoughts. The earlest I could make it out to the stand the next couple of nights would be 6:00 pm.

Here are a couple more pics from Monday evening. full-18080-1031-bear4.jpg

Well the way I read the regulations it says one bear for a quota zone and two for a no-quota zone plus those are over the counter. It never says what the statewide season limit is. You just can't use your lotto tag for a no-quota area. Maybe someone else has done this or asked in the past can ring in. Maybe new post.

Jerkbait, you have a nice bear going there, I would hunt according with your baiting schedual, an if that coincides with after work around 6 then I'd hunt, when do ya bait? When a guy hunts he is gonna do the same routine as he would do his baiting, same time, same everything, stick to this is my opinion, if your baiting a 6 an he's hitting after 7 like your camera says, then rock an roll buddy! just dont change a routine. Good luck, looks like he'll make some tasty sausage for the ice house. Double H I've heard of people doing this, an I agree that there seems to be no limit on bear just cant cross tag into zones, I dont know how successful people are, but I could be wrong. Good topic though, to much work for me at this time. But a questions is can you maintain all sites at teh same time, dosent say anything about that either, it's really kinda vauge, cause you could be hunting the line an have three tags an just cross the road after you fill one, boy lots of questions now. Hmmmm. boar

Thanks,I have been baiting between 5:30-6:00 everyday. Funny thing with that bear coming through at 7:30, never touched the bait, then back at 2:11 am and then into the bait until 5:00 am. may have to give it a whirl tonight.

That is what I am thinking. I made it just before 6:00 yeseterday evening to rebait and swap cards. When I got home and looked at the pictures the bear showed up at 8:56 pm on Tuesday until almost midnight. Then it came back at 6:52 am Wednesday morning for about 5 minutes, just enough time. No set routine. So I am thinking hunt Friday afternoon, then hunt Mornings and afternoons the rest of the weekend. Thought about hunting today after work, but the Vikes are on tonight. As long as it keeps coming I have a chance of getting it sooner or later.

J.B I think the bears time clock is off. used to come in at 7ish pm and again at 5ish am. Now he came at 8pm something and again at 6am something, at least he is still predictable. Only an hour later though. hahahaha ----57---

Youve come this far with baiting to watch football? wink keep us posted Boar 57 I'll try tonight. Boar

I know, I know. I do have my priorities mixed up. I didn't hunt Monday night because I had a job that I needed to get done on Tuesday. What was I thinking. The one thing I have going up here is that there really is no competition from other hunters.

      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. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      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!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.
    • redlabguy
      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
