  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks for all the funny responses, made me laugh for sure Had the name of the plant on the tip of my tongue, and at the same time rolled up one of the leaves of the plant and....what what was I going to say..... I'm sure it will come to me...
  3. Today
  4. Wow, really eh, what are the chances. I have numerous 'Brand' name rods, but like this one the best for canoe fishing. Over the years this rod pulled in many pike, channel cats, one high flying musky, and many other fish. What species of fish were you targeting with this rod ?
  5. No perch, after I pulled up a walleye we changed it up and went back to trolling ended the day with 11. Maybe next time for perch.
  6. Every two weeks would not bother me. I live alone and only put out trash every 3-4 weeks anyway. I putout more recycling than trash.
  7. Yes , hunting with the brothers is special, but there is always the element of competition in the hunting and fishing. Having a brother netting your fish that is bigger than his always carries the fear of a netting "accident". But it is a tradition we look forward to all year because we make time for it. Down home family, jobs, and other cr@p can make it difficult for all of us to hunt and fish together. As well, some hunt with other gangs, e.g moose. But the bear hunt is always great albeit a lot of work at times. But we are still doing it together. Getting eight 45 gallon drums worth of donuts for the initial baiting trip and an 8 1/2 hour drive and getting it in the barrels and setting up trail cameras for each bait can be a lot of work. Getting the docks in, clearing out paths through the wild rice plug up the shorelines is a pain. Doing the improvements each year to make it easier is a pain. The youngest is 54 and the oldest (me) is almost 68 so we have to do it while we can. However, everyone chips in, the work gets done and when you sit on the deck with a beverage or doctored coffee in the morning, look out over the lake with the ducks feeding in the wild rice, and a loon make the call that is so typical of the north........it is worth it. (Besides we bring lots of Ben Gay and Tylenol)
  8. Our garbage collector , Emterra is ending as contracts end . We may see another company take the task and they are looking at garbage pickups every two weeks . Emterra has been penalized by $150 million for infractions caused by equipment failures and labour shortages . They don't pay these guys near enough for that hard stinking job . I would rather sling burgers for the money difference than do that job . The two week pickup will likely come to pass ...... and I'm sure we will see more garbage dumped on road sides (and fishing spots) . The city can hire a "special trash unit " (STU) to clean up the country side ? Collecting recycle stuff every 2 weeks would work as it doesn't stink up the hood and attract more rats ..... lets hope we don't have more trashing of our out door environment.... https://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/news-story/9600265-new-collection-waste-and-recycling-contract-will-be-split/
  9. I spent about 4.5 hours carping at Gibby yesterday and only one for one and a sickly looking one as well . I did better in the spring in a shallow back bay out of the currents reach.....which makes me wonder if "they" have used some sort of chemical like they use for lamprey eels to kill the grass carp . (maybe over did it a tad) ??... Think I'll pass on Gibby for the rest of the season & see what happens next spring ........picked a couple dozen worms last night after butchering my grass with a low setting on the mower to make them more visible / pickable ....looking for an eye/perch/pike dinner..... ....and another thing ....lots of small fishing packages left at the first spot ....name on the packs says "west end live bait" , located in T.O. Why do these pigs think it's "cool" to leave their junk here ? ......maybe because T.O. is such a big shithole ?
  10. Thanks Chris very much appreciate it. Going for perch today.
  11. Lake looks nice. Light north wind and small rollers coming in Cottage_20190917074521_Record.mp4
  12. Wondering if Chrisb could give us a live eye report on the lake conditions out of p.c. this morning? Thanks.
  13. Looks nothing like the carp I used to pull out of there as a kid 30yrs ago. What a shame.
  14. Maybe not the 420 variety but hey ..........smoke it anyway..........ya never know. LOL
  15. I decided to give some of my best Gibby spots a try this morning , about 4.5 hrs worth . Armed with fresh maize on a hair I tried some deep spots with some current ...not a sniff . I decided to try a "sure bet " spot that has a good current with a back eddy , had good luck there before but not great for walking .(rocks) I tried the maize for an hour and nothing . So I clipped the hair off & tried a corn puff ....about 20 minutes later a hookup ! It didn't fight much ...came to the surface and "rolled" in like it was out of steam . This carp looked beat up , and not healthy at all ! I fished for another 1/2 hr.and decided one sorry looking carp was all to be had . Gibby is strangely void of carp this year and this sick one makes me wonder what's going on here ? This is not what a healthy carp should look like ....
  16. Yesterday

    perch

    Planning for tomorrow, will let u know how we do.
  19. Did this down in Erieau waters a couple weeks ago. Turned out alright for me. Usually only run 2 lines so a little easier to make the turn. Seems like fish always hit any time I made a little adjustment in speed, or turn. Probably something to do with depth of dipsys. All I know, it worked for me. My buddy was in the same area in his boat and was no as productive. Still new at this trolling thing so this is definitely something for the repertoire on a slow bite.

    perch

    Any luck with the Perch? Went out weekend before last as a first try and didnt get any on minnows. As long as the weather cooperates, might give it a shot this weekend again.
  21. Do you know the actual name of this plant. I get nothing searching the amazing plant.
  22. Looks like a douglas fir! LOL
  23. 34 inches wide? Is this one of those fishing tales? lol Those leaves are massive.
  24. Haha I've got the same rod that broke in the same spot. It served me well for many years.
  25. curious

    perch

    time to put away the pickerel gear and get out the perching gear. Has anyone been perch fishing off abino? does anyone know if Dominion Bait have minnows? Thanks.
  26. Ok thanks. I figured that if it was as easy as they made it look, I would have heard about it before.
