Sometimes the human/wildlife traffic doesn't mix so well.

A man and a woman were hospitalized after an early morning attack by a polar bear in Churchill, a city located on Hudson Bay and well known for its bear population.

"I ran out to see a huge mama bear and her cub scurrying across the street from the back alley. Then we started hearing shots, then screaming and yelling, then more shots," said resident Joe Myles.

A tour guide was mauled but manage to survive the attack.

Save the date:

Another reminder: Myself and radio show co-host A.J. Paul will be in the Grandt Rod booth the evening of Jan. 22 for a Daily Herald-sponsored promotional event celebrating the 2013 super event. We'll have special drawing for a custom Grandt rod and Little Action Mac worms.

Fishing report:

Fox Chain: Once again, excellent crappie angling on Channel Lake, Lake Catherine and Bluff Lake.

Bangs Lake: I have been cautioned to ease up on promoting this wonderful bass hot spot (only kidding). But the crappie action continues in shallow water.

Lake Michigan: Snaggers are getting their share of soon-to-die kings off Chicago and Waukegan locations. But there are some decent brown trout being caught on live bait in Waukegan and Racine.
