JUST BOOKED OUR TRIP FOR THE FIRST WEEK OF FEB WITH BEAR PAW. A FEW WEEKS AGO I FOUND SOMTHING ON HEAR ABOUT BEAR PAW HOWEVER I CANT FIND IT TODAY. SO HAVE PEOPLE BEEN HAPPY WITH THEM IN THE PAST? WE WILL BE STAYING IN ONE OF THERE CABINS AND USING A FEW OF THERE DAY HOUSES. WAS JUST WONDERING IF THEY PUT THE DAY HOUSES ON FISH? OR IF I NEEDED TO BRING PORTABLES FOR MY GROUP TO FIND FISH AWAY FROM THERE DAY HOUSES.

Tyler at Bear Paw is one of a kind. You will be happy with your decision. I'm sure they will put you on some fish.

yeah i agree with toomuchfun....i have not personally met or dealt with them but Tyler seems to know where and how to catch what he is searching for.....if i was looking for a guide they would definatly be one of my few choices!!!! If they are good enough for Dave Genz and the ICE TEAM they are good enough for me!!! Good Luck and I am sure you won't be disappointed!!

Good folks. We stayed in their houses twice two years ago including a cabin on shore for a night. The houses we stayed in were nothing spectacular but if it's fish and a place to sleep you're in search of you'll have a good trip. The cabin was very nice. I'd bring your portables. The house will provide a place for meals... jigging at primetime... cards, whatever but more than likely if it's not too cold you'll want to cover some ground or have Steve point ya in the right direction to get on some fish during the day. You'll have a great time... Wish it was me making the trip back up there...

We used them last year. They were very friendly to us. We didn't pound em but we got some fish. He told us to bring the portables with in case we weren't right on top of them, his kid was about 100 yards away nailing the crappies, but we were too comfy, and had drank too much to move that 100 yards. I'd have no problem going back to them.

2 more thumbs up for Steve and Tyler at BearPaw. Stayed in one of their small cabins a couple weekends ago and had a great time. Stayed in their sleepers the last 3 years before, but wanted the option of cooking up a few of those eye's one night.

I would still take your portables, its inevitable that the day your there the hot bite is another 2 miles past where you are sitting. Plus there is soooooo much ice to xplore that hasnt been touched, you just gotta get away and punch a few holes in some of that jagged ice out there and giver a try for the motherloadgrin.gif

      I'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
