I missed a big one, chewed threw my line.  I put a wire lead on and a top floating rapala.  The water was clear enough on West Vermilion, I could see the pike chasing my lure.  Awesome!

You don't have to be out in the middle of the woods to have a bear encounter, as we all know.  Bears have hibernating and now that they are awake and it's time to eat!  As you can see, the DNR is starting to see more complaints about bears in the Northland.  While the bears aren't looking for trouble, it can still be intimidating to have them in your yard.

Your best best bet is to make sure your property is clear of food and make sure when you put your garbage out that it is full contained and not hanging out for our furry friends to smell.
