How do you catch a fish without a fishing pole?

With your BEAR hands.

Interesting Fact: Black bears are not true hibernators. During their winter dormant period, though, they do not eat, drink, urinate, or defecate, but may wake up if disturbed. ( http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/black-bear/ )
