    Niagara river

    We decided to go out despite the threat of rain Sunday morning. Had the entire lower river to ourselves. Took abou an hour to figur out a working pattern on the smallmouth. Once we had things figured out it was a blast. Swim baits and twister tails tossed up into the shallows were the ticket for three solid hours of fishing. FInally, we had to give up as the rain was getting a lot heavier and the sky was getting that 'thunderstorm" black. At the end of it we had boated close to 50 bronze backs, biggest being around 3 1/2.

    And part of the problem there is with the government making laws to make it tougher for the cops to do their jobs with this "carding". It used to be that when kids were out on the street at that time of day, possibly/probably up to no good they could go question and I.D. them, not anymore!

    The big city problems of 20-30 years back are now an epidemic everywhere. The courts will never get tough on theiving because the bar society would never make any money,

    Van Go (Gone)?

    She was at fault Fred.....She hit the brakes and froze in the middle of the through road which the van was on . I'll get a copy of the police report tonight and it will be sent to my insurance co. If the insurance only pays out $1000 there is no point in paying for collision insurance . I have been paying insurance for 60 years with no claims.... edit.....estimate came to $3 grand . Insurance lady said they will determine any payout by what the body shop says the van is worth . I told her I shouldn't have to pay a cent since the other party was 100% at fault & I will be without my van for a week . The police report doesn't comment on the accident at all , only the location , vehicle I.D. and driver names & insurance co. If they won't cover $3000 to fix my van ...time to change insurance company . A friend had his truck stolen ( so common these days) and they paid out nearly 40 grand ....no problem . I have received some tips , thanks to posting here , and I will check them out while I'm waiting to here back from Cumis Insurance ....this coming Thursday . I can still drive it in the meantime .

    must haves for basic tackle set up

    And a little hint with regards to the bug spray, I wouldn't keep it in my tacklebox, that stuff will eat right through plastic, lures, paint, line...

    Hats off

    My theory is that all these slobs must be descended from royalty and they just expect that someone else will pick it up while people like you and I will just keep cleaning up their mess because that's WHAT WE DO.

    I'm speaking to my insurance company about it. The agent wasn't sure which policy it would fall under as some stuff was in the truck, some was in the boat and it was all in my driveway. My home insurance deductable is $1000 but my boat insurance deductible is only $250. If I get stuck with a $1000 deductible and they end up raising my rates as a result of the claim, then its not worth it and I'll just have to eat the loss. The problem is the result of a lot of things Smerch. Slaps on the wrist, bad parenting, not being "allowed" to spank your kids when they need it etc... Everybody feels entitled and has no more respect for anybody anymore. Makes me sick.

    Where are the carp hiding

    Yea I don’t know what’s been going on for me with carp this year. Having absolutely no luck so changing it up and hitting some bass tomorrow morning hopefully with top waters. Just for a change of pace. We shall see how it goes.

    must haves for basic tackle set up

    Oh oh oh! I just had to chime in. When you get swivels, make sure to spend a little extra and get BALLBEARING swivels. Especially since Mepps spinners are on the must-have list. This will stop the frustration of line twist like nothing else! ...ok, now I'm happy.

    I still have a bunch of those old lures Fred , must be worth thousands now ! We used to sneak in the DeCew reservoir (drinking water) and catch a lot of small mouth bass on a frog colour U20 Flatfish . ....great action on those oldies . Nice improvement with the Kwikfish ...those 4 spring loaded trebles on the Flatfish were a p.i.t.a. Nice to see the Jitterbug is still alive and catching bass !

    Reminder ...

    3% is what I use Bill. Any type of ACV will work. Thing is when Angel gets in the jeep after a walk I can still smell the ACV a bit and then have a desire for some fries....
