  • Bait is in!!!

    Got our baits in this am, we left at 0300 while the snow was still hard and crusty. I think its the deepest Ive ever seen in up there at this time a year. 18 to 36 still on the ground. The lakes were touch and go but passable. We were able to drag over 250 pounds of bait out there by ourselves and it was the easiest trip we have ever had. GOING AT NIGHT IS THE SECRET!

        No bear sign yet, lots of lynx tracks though This is my 5th year at this location, extremely hard to get to. The 16th of May is the earliest Ive had a hit and normally its between the 24 to 26 before they start coming in on a pattern. I just like to get my heavy stuff out via the sleigh now. I want even go back out until the weekend of the 14th

                Thanks Taylor, going with a sweet barrel only and dog food/whatever barrel this year. I painted them this year so they dont stick out like a sore thumb in my videos. Im going to try and document what they like the best with my camera, theyre about 10 apart and I should get camera coverage of both at the same time. Ive also got a chain in the middle of the two that I attach 5 gallon grease buckets to start things off. This is my 5th year at this spot and I get about a 7 to 3 ratio of blacks over browns. They seem to tolerate each other for the most part "so far" Brown sugar and marsh mellows has been the favorite food source the last two years.

                  7 to 3 ratio.. not bad! Sounds like you have a great spot all dialed in. Good luck!
