Recommended Posts

x1957x

It is HOT!!! Literaly!! As far as the baiting is going it is 3 for 4 and waiting on the one we(buddy) moved back a couple hundred yards. Are you guys still seeing lots of natural food with this heat it? Should be drying stuff up considering the lack of rain over the last couple months up here in the NW..

Two outta three for us. Got a daytime pic of one that looks to be around 200 lbs. Camera malfunctioned on the other bait that was cleaned out... GRRRR.

Started another bait, so have four to check when we head back up Saturday morning. Looks like the heat might let up a little for Sunday, Monday!

No hits for me. It could be a tad more hot though. My proven spot is still untouched and set out my other proven spot which has good water around out today. Was planning on staying right around home but made the twenty min drive today.

Alot of 90's in the future so water should help out.

I was told all of mine were hit pretty hard, one with a good sized cinnamon colored bear. I'm definitely excited since there's pretty much no one baiting in the area this year, and no one else that hunts with me got drawn!

We are 3 for 3 baiting every day and there is never a drop left with the 10 gal max. Got 3 in the 6'~6.5' range coming in regulary from 5:30-7:00 pm. Never had bear work so easy before even with acorns starting to drop and the heat. Kind of crazy but has cost me 3 beautiful 3rd leaf apple trees.

I finally got hit by 2 bears yesterday,first one at 7:50pm and the other at 10:15pm.either one was very big maybe 150 tops could even be the same bear,hard to tell.the first one came in shortly after a good thunderstorm rolled through dumping a lot of rain.i only have 2 sites going and both bears hit the same one.its a start anyway.

We were 5 for 5 up until the heat moved in then it dropped to 1 for 5. Today I heard we are 3 for 5 but all pics are night and early morning where as before the heat showed up everything was afternoon and evening.

I finally got a bear hitting a bait. In the three days since I have been there the bear has been there morning noon and night.. He of course ate everything. I fed him good today. Put in lots of extras too. full-20736-36266-051.jpg

I was 3/3 again with all the bait gone. A lot of night photos but still plenty during the day as well. I won't get to concerned until I bait Saturday and check the photos and times again. I will be hunting the first 5 days and then taking kids out for youth waterfowl day. The hard part will be if the big ones are only coming at night and the others are day time shots. I've shot a lot of bears and a few pretty good ones but after 4 days I might be weak. I hope they keep hitting like they have been even with all the berries around.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!
    • Mlaker3
      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray 
    • monstermoose78
      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.
