I can neither confirm nor deny any such report of me catching a polar bear,. As we all know the harvesting of Polar bears is forbidden as they are a protected species. However, if I were to wish to catch one, I would use

A heavy powered ugly stick (they are virtually unbreakable) with 1500 lb white braid so it mixes in the the snowy conditions Polar bears are found in. My lure of choice would be a Savage Gear 36" baby seal coated in extra heavy fish scent.

If you can locate said bear, getting them to bite is not difficult. The battle is epic. The largest concern is unhooking the bear. Once landed they are seriously ticked off.

Hummmmm does it have anything to do with a can of peas? Lol

Here are step by step instructions.
1. Cut a big hole in the ice.
2. This is a key step. Sprinkle peas around the hole.
3. Wait for the polar bear to take a pea.
4. Kick the polar bear in the ICE hole.
5. There you have! You didnít even have to pull out the long rod or get yours hand full of seal juice.

I hear the Savage Gear 36" baby walrus is really good too!

Obviously cabin fever is hitting hard!

Iíve never met a Polar Bear,
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow...
Iíd rather see than be one!

(Especially if AWB is fishing for em!)

If you're after trophy sized Polbea's I suggest 60 inch jigging spoons in an American tourist pattern topped with a small backpack or camera gear. Or the waving Inuit pattern wrapped in fur seal.
CAUTION. Dont attempt to mimic these patterns in live bait.
Serious injury or death can be inflicted by the bait
