  1. Today
  2. T' Dah !! Took smercho's advice & did a carp run today ... grabbed a can of p & c corn & off to Gibby ...got there a little late for the morning bite but gave it a shot . A fellow (John) was walking by & asked what I was fishing for . When I said "carp" , he came to chat .....very nice guy ....and very knowledgeable about carping . (hope to see him browsing nfn soon) . As John was getting to leave & my back was turned from my rod (of course) the rod bent & the fight was on . John was impressed with my expertise on fighting this carp into submission as he landed it for me . ahah ! About 10 minutes after he left I rigged up some fresh P & C ...tossed it out ...& before I set the back drag another carp hit hard ....Both fish were a good 10 lbs+ , but didn't weigh them . ...using a hair rig . Got me mojo back fishfight !
  3. Yesterday
  4. Awesome thanks for the help! I will go check out there club house and see if they can give me some more information.
  5. As was stated their club house is located on highway 140 in Welland and they have a hunt camp located in the Port Loring area . There is usually members at the club house on Tuesday nights and they could provide you with more information. Hope this helps. Ken
  6. I remember going to a welland club when I was 14 years old . it was open for young kids then on sat. afternoon . we where taught how to handle and shoot guns . it cost us 25 cents to shoot 3 shots at clay birds. we went on a few trips planting trees and a fish hatchery . . I know it was called welland something . best gun club I ever attended. that was 60 years ago. td
  7. Google search for 'true sport hunt club welland' came up with this https://foursquare.com/v/true-sport-hunt-club/523f198711d2ba03ae7f9c72 Even some youtubes Apparently it not just a Welland thing. http://truesportpur.ca/contact-us
  8. Last week
  9. I could be wrong but I think they may have had a clubhouse on the hwy 140 and Buchner Rd?. Again I may be wrong but something tells me that was the name of that club. You mite start there
  10. The numbers that the carp trap personnel counted year by year have been going down. The area hardly ever get busy these days. I was always alone when I go there to try. Not even the Hungarian Gypsies ever showed up, who used to land carp and placed them inside suitcases with wheels for easier transport. Smerch,.............. I thought you always do decent on Carp fishing. If we cannot catch the known abundant species Carp , what can we catch? .............Bugs!
  11. Dee (my daughter) told me that ski was 13" .....lol.....kidding Bruce . She has been catching some nice bass there , just steps away from her house . The wind is brutal now , having a home brew coffee & heading to Port Dal. to see wazz happnin......got a rod ....just in case ....
  12. Was supposed to go to L Simcoe, but high winds cancelled that idea, so Anna and I went to Pt Robinson for a few hours. Got a few bass,lots of pannies, and finally got my first muskie as an accidental catch, a young 2 footer. We then ran into Dee and her dog.
  13. I do try... if only they reinstated the bounty....
  14. Way to go W.C take them all out
  15. Yea stay home or hit the inland rivers
  16. First yote down this yr for me.. buddy wanted to sit out this morn in a corn field he hunts that just came down.. no deer tag this yr for me didn't bother but said see if I could get a yote or two... I didn't call for em since buddy was in his stand close by trying for deer and didn't wanna spook any deer for em but the farmers pretty strict on not giving free passes to yotes so when he came across the field looking for mice I had no choice.. he was about 130-140 out and no match for the 243. Don't get better than that sweet smell of gun powder in the morning
  17. Hello, I have acquired a couple jackets that belonged to my great grandfather and was looking for some more information regarding them. My father gave them to me along with a few knives last year, he was apart of the Welland Hunting Club but when I search I cannot find that it is still active. Anyone that was once part of this organization or know someone who was I would love to learn more, especially if they knew him. His nick name was Buck but his name was Alex Buchan. Im guessing these shirts are anywhere from 70-80 years old. Thanks for any help, if you knew him id love to meet for a coffee and learn more. Alex
  18. Lost my mojo as well fishfight . I think the carp have put the word out on me , or they can smell my scent on my maize ! Getting desperate now, I will try a fat dew worm or dough ball to trick them ! ,,,,,or wear a balaclava over my puss ......Hope you find your mojo . edit ! ....this smerchly guy has too much time on his hands ! ! Cool it smercho & get out fishing more !
  19. Could anyone provide an update that might be on the water later today? It would be greatly appreciated.
  20. The Strait Line Anglers cancelled their perch tournament scheduled tomorrow due to weather
  21. Supposed to be strong southwest winds all night and morning tomorrow. I was hoping to take the kids out but now second guessing. If anyone could give a report of the water in the morning it would be appreciated.
  22. The area got reopen for carping again, they had a 20th anniversary on Aug 25. I have not landed a carp in 4 years , tried 1-2 times each year during spring to no luck. I actually sneaked in there once during june, Cool to be fishing alone, the area was a mess with tons of debris all over the ground. I saw lots of shad surfacing, a cayaker was fishing in and out of the canal at 2 am in the morning. He did not catch any fish that same night I was there. Water level was higher than normal. I have completely lost my mojo in Carp fishing. Not sure how to get it back!
  23. Went out looking for shrooms today....perfect conditions , same time last year , but nary a shroom to be had at my usual spots .But I did find some nice fat ones ....at Big Reds ! Came home with a nice eye of the round roast , ham kielbasa , rye bread & veggies . They have the 11lb box of their own smoked bacon on for $35 ....real nice bacon good price ! Use some to wrap chunks of pike on the bbq (fishing related) Anyone see any shrooms lately ? Maybe I'm too early , or too late , but I hope to get some of those 4" wide beauties again .
  24. So who has minnows lately. Hoping for some perch tomorrow.thanks
  25. Congrats on the cow ....a lot of hard work to get it back to camp . We have carried many "pieces" of moose long distances back to the river/lake where the quarters were carried out on a "bush stretcher" . As we aged , we used a chain saw & used cooking oil for the chain & would hang the quarters in dense pines after skinning, peppering & wrapping in cheese cloth & keep them cool as possible . We started using an ATV to take moose quarters from the bush ....much easier than the long haul with stretchers ! Those were the days ! The last 4 hunts was a 2 day trip to the camp west of Thunder Bay starting at Arrow Lake into Rose Lake (full of perch) . ( surf'nturf ) Many stories to tell.......Good luck Surf and Turf . I just saw this drone video in the British paper , Mail on Line .... A crazed wolf trying to kill a big cow moose near Sault St.Marie ...amazing what one wolf will do for a meal ! Many calves have been lost to these vicious wolves and adult moose are easy targets in deep snow when a pack is hungry . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akGWOpcWfrQ
  26. See you Saturday
  27. That's so disappointing when you're targeting panfish and get those instead. lol
  28. Late report on this year’s moose hunt. Again this year we hunted the opening week. Boy was it warm! We had a group of 8 guys this year. We drew a Bull tag, and had a Cow tag through outfitter camp. Leading up to the hunt we hade been having quite a debate over whether to take a cow or not if the opportunity presented itself and decided as a group that we would take one only if it didn’t have a calf with it. Opening morning we set off to our respective hunting spots. Myself, and a buddy made the hour long trek in the dark out to a beaver pond which I like to hunt. It is in a beautiful clearing about 300 yds across and very remote. The edge of the clearing is about 50 feet from the edge of a river. It is a perfect location for calling, as they can’t come in behind you unseen. I had just set up the decoy got comfortable and starting calling when one of the guys comes on the radio, “Moose Down”! “Cow Down”! Twenty after 8 am on opening morning and we have a moose down. So we pack up our stuff, make the journey back to camp to gather up all the necessities to recover a moose. Rope, knives, saw, bottle of rye for celebratory shots, etc., and off we go. When we got to where the moose had gone down it was approximately 100 feet from the side of a river, about 99 feet farther than I like but I guess it could have been worse. It was an old dry cow, so we didn’t feel bad about taking her.Thankfully in the long wait to get there the shooter had taken the time to gut the moose. So at that point we just had to drag the moose to the rivers edge and load in the boat. So with “heave ho’s”, 12 inches at a time we finally got her to the rivers edge and rolled her into an empty 14 footer. Now a quick 3 hour trip towing the moose back to camp at a perfect walleye trolling speed of about 1.5 mph! Back at camp we made quick work of getting it quartered, skinned and hanging. Back to the beaver pond for another three days back to back, dawn to dusk, until I had fed every mosquito within a mile. Not one response, it was just to hot, and the moose were obviously not in the rut or even curious about what was making all the racket. I spent the next couple of days traveling the rivers and checking back bays hoping to spot a bull feeding, and catching a few pickerel and pike in the early afternoon. On Wednesday a couple of guys came upon a bull feeding at the side of a creek. There are conflicting stories about what happened, who made the most noise, who couldn’t get their gun loaded, who went left when he should have gone right but the end result was the same. The Bull got tired of watching whatever they were doing and walked around a bend in the creek never to be seen again! Well we got skunked on our Bull, but over the course of last week and a few beers, we came up with a great idea, and some begging with the wives we are going back this weekend to finish business. Leaving this Friday morning, 10 hour drive up, hunt Saturday and Sunday and 10 hours back on Sunday night. As I write this I’m actually almost agreeing with my wife’s take on this “mission”…. well almost! I’ll give an update when back.
