  1. Yesterday
  2. Good on ya to give 'er a go despite the conditions, Smerch. Driving to work today, I stopped by a spot along the Grand River in Cambridge and she was running high and muddy. Also stopped along Riverside Park in Cambridge and couldn't even drive into the park as the Speed River had overflowed the bank there. Oh well, 'tis the season. What can ya do?
  3. They have friends who make E.V's Dave .....
  4. Muddy water ( 1 cm. vis.) everywhere ! Checked out a few carp -cat spots yesterday , loaded with raunchy smelts , worms , large minnows , corn ....and some unknown stuff either attract , or scare off the fish . Well , the bullheads were hungry for most of our arsenal of baits, some a decent size to keep us interested . A couple of perch were interested in the worms , one over 11" (spawned out hen) . ...hoping things get better as the water viz gets better . ...slow start on the carp this year with only 2 banked . Looks like a perch trip may be in the cards ..... ...as Scottydog used to say .....Good fishing !
  5. Since we got heavily involved with world trade we have "imported" many invasive species that have cost us billions of dollars . Zebra mussels & gobies are now just part of the eco system . Invasive bugs have killed millions of trees at a huge cost ( to us) to control . I agree , carp are now "naturalized" in Ontario . Fishing has changed dramatically since the 50's when we caught fish like brookies & eels . Smelts & alewives were thick along the lake shores until salmon were stocked . I think we have much more to worry about than carp as more invasive species make Canada their new home. We sure pay a dear price for importing products from around the globe... '
  6. In my opinion, I think you're more right about carp than those who call 'em "invasive." I believe the term "naturalize" best represents carp, who were stocked here well over a hundred years ago as a food fish, and are now one of the only fish that can survive in the degraded habitats we've created.
  7. Serves them right for voting in a NDP Government 😎
  8. Well it’s cheaper here then out in B.C. seen it was 1.78L there.
  9. Hank Williams Jr. , country boy can survive . " catch catfish from dusk till dawn"
  10. I fished 2 tournaments at Wellers Bay way back. Fished it with Bob Izumi and a few other guys that made it to tv. It was a walleye/pike tournament both times and the fishing was great. Bobs brother Wayne actually taught me how to use a bait caster at Wellers Bay. Get a good topo map or if you have a gps unit you will need it. I lost a prop one year when in 15 ft of water rocks sticking up below the surface attacked my prop.
  11. Looking for info about fishing this area . My daughter is moving to the Weller's Bay & Consecon Lake area ,south of Trenton next month . Boat access from the trailer park is at Weller's Bay . ....wondering if these spots have good walleye fishing . Lake Concecon looks land locked ...may be a bass -pike fishing lake ? Our trailer will be at Mohawk Bay ...about 30 minute drive away where we have good walleye-pike-bass-drum and plenty of perch . They have a 14' aluminum & like to fish . anyone fished this area ?
  12. Last week
  13. That was my thought. That catfish could swallow him whole.
  14. Is there a pre registration? Or just show up the morning of?
  15. Wels catts would be a blast to catch. That would be an epic fishing adventure
  16. That catfish is waayyyyyyy bigger then 280 pounds, that angler is at least around 200 and the fish looks like it could swallow him whole
  17. That is good news, but planned for an early finish and under budget three years out … give me a break, plenty of time for things the government is involved in to go wrong. I saw a local politician trying to say it was their doing for ontime and under budget.
  18. Looks like a Wels … stories of them reaching 600 pounds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wels_catfish
