    Cat fish?

    Just got back from Dunnville. My brother and I landed 23 cats today. The biggest was 17 on the scale but lots between 8-10. Water is still muddy but that’s okay for cats. Water temp is still only 50 so the cats will be around for awhile.

    Turkey season

    Hunting today started like any other outing. Early morning drive out to dunnville. A long walk out to my blind, and a lot of sitting. Only saw 1 bird that had snuck in behind me and took off flying when I stepped out of the blind for a break. Then after a few hours out of no where there is a loud gobble in the bush very close. I reply with a very short Yelp, and within a minute 2 Tom's walk out of the bush at about 60 yards. They gobble and start heading across the field like my decoy isn't even there. I call to them and they stop, but slowly are making their way away from me. With some clucking and purring they finally stop and stare for a while, but again never getting closer. They are at about 80 yards now. Then they turn and head back to the woods they came out of. At this point I am desperate to keep their attention and have them come closer, so I start excitedly cutting and dont stop. This brings them back in to about 60 yards, but then the first one hops into the thick bush. I figure this is my last chance, so I take aim and fire at the second bird who is still in the field, and he dropped like a ton of bricks. I have been hunting for 3 years, and this is my first successful hunt. 10" beard, 1 3/8" spurs. Looking forward to having him for supper!

    Turkey season

    Had a great morning today started off with 2 toms opening up on the roost gave some soft yelps shook my hat hard to make it sound like a hen coming off the roost .i did some more soft yelps and they were on there way but they walked right past me not giving a shot they gobbled like crazy in the field right behind me then i heard the hens yelping with them so got as comfortable as i could and waited for the hens to leave the toms then thing got crazy as i could hear them sounding the alarm there better not be anyone coming across that field [trespasser ] then things got real crazy as all the turkeys exploded in to flight and had a tom land in the tree right in front of me as i pulled up on him i see movement to the left of me i watched to see what it was and there it was coyote staring at my decoy as the tom was still sounding the alarm i thought do i make the move yes do it so i pulled up on the tom took the shot down he fell and on top of that i i was able to take out the yote as well as he ran past me this will never happen again CONGRATS ON YOUR BIRD AS WELL KGM

    Lake erie/crystal beach

    Went out for my first trip of the year to lake erie yesterday. Really wanted to get into some walleye. We trolled from 7am till about 10 1030. Marked only 3 fish. Skunked! Luckily we brought minnows also. Tried one spot, not even a bite. Only saw a couple fish caught while we lasted there. So we decided to make another move and try point abino. At about 12ish there were maybe about 15 boats . By 2 it had doubled in size. Marked huge schools. Ended up with 28 perch. Not bad for a couple hours of actually perch fishing. Even though we didnt find the walleye the perch made up for it! Tried to post pic of the fish fry but the file is too big. Saw a couple perch caught that were huge! Our biggest one was just over 12 inches. Great day on the water!

    A few pike

    Thanks Paul. It’s more about spending time with my little brother who is almost 48 and just started fishing. I have fished all my life all over North America for fun and tournaments and feel totally blessed but spending time on the water with my little brother has all that beat.

    In search of pike

    Using a spinnerait …. or 5 … tossed some for about two hours, the end result was one pike, took a second cast to hook it … about 20 inches or so, two smaller ones following the lures, and something smacked a spinnerbait when it was too deep and far out to see. The pike are definitely acting like the water is a little too cold right now. Cut the fishing shot, since Amazon let me know my package arrived … and in it was an electric lead melter to get away from using an open flame since that is frowned upon in my neighborhood. No picture of the pike, but some pictures of the lures created today to continue the hunt for those toothy gremlins. One is a duplicate of one made last year that brought me a muskie pushing 50".

    Community gardens

    I run one of many community gardens in brantford. The gardens are for anyone that need some food or helps out volunteering and for the food bank. The girlfriend and I spent an hour last night turning it over and prepping it for planting. Today I picked up the plants, seeds and compost(supplied by the city). So this weekend we should be planting everything. It’s a nice way to help people out that maybe can’t afford the food they should be eating. Eating healthy definitely isn't cheap. I haven’t seen too many community gardens outside of brantford, do your city’s have them also? http://i.imgur.com/cdLnqPH.jpeg http://i.imgur.com/PtZ50A3.jpeg

    May long weekend fishing

    Up at Commanda Lake and cool wet and windy a lot but no black flies! Caught a lot of small ones so figured spawn was late. One guy had his grandson who lives up there come by for a visit and he said most guys can't find fish yet. Water cold and high and they're not where they should be. Figures it's 2 weeks behind. We still got a about 9 keepers and a dozen slab crappie but most of those were with minnows at night. Lots of fun.

    Carp supplies

    Gotta watch those bags , a wet mix will melt the bag quickly . I saw a vid where a guy was using can corn in the bag but he salted the corn which prevented premature evaporation of the bag .....😁 I have some pva line which can be used with a single piece of toilet paper loaded with a semi-dry bait . When it hits the drink the bag will fall apart and the line will melt away ....tried a proto type in the toilet bowl ....seems to work ..... (genius )

    Turkey season

    Congrats to both!. I brined the breast from my turkey for 24 hours and then cooked it in the oven for about an hour and it came out pretty juicy. The legs and thighs are in freezer. I usually make soup from them.

    What to do

    Education would sure help.....I've seen this season people fishing...seeing someone else catch a nice fish....then ask what it was......if you are fishing you should be able to identify species for sure....or how do you remotely know if it is legally in season or not...what your limits are ect....I have thought for years that you should have to show a valid fishing liscence in order to buy fishing gear....you can't just go to the store and randomly by ammo

    TICKS!

    I have been spraying Angel, my malinois with apple cider vinegar cut 30% with water. Spray her legs and underside, tail, and cover her eyes and quick spray at the head, they love exploring, and only had two ticks on her in about 6 years. She got those two, because I forgot to sprayer her one day. I also spray the bottom of my pants and shoes. Just a quick spray, not wet.

    Beautiful day out

    I saw a few carpers fishing Gravelly Bay in PC. I ran into FishinFeldie at the Wainfleet Quarry and also got to the Crystal Beach launch. The docks are in but the numerous icebergs out in the lake were turning fishermen away. A good southwest wind should get rid of the rest of it.

    Carp meet up

    Hey guys. Sorry for the short notice but it would be nice to get together this weekend with whoever can attend for a carp meet up since things are starting to heat up. Saturday looks wet so I’m thinking Sunday will be the day for it. Chime in if you can make it, everyone is welcome. We’ll pick a spot over the next day or two. Hope to see some new faces out.

    Leave it alone man, that would be my advice...Lots of fish being caught on the river right now, go explore and you will be rewarded. I have been fishing trout three time a week on the river with good results...

    Minnow Run

    If you want big bait for pike for example....use a minnow trap with some bread in it...there is usually some nice sized chubs in the mix at the bottom there

    Crazy Carp Day

    It started out with a few fat bull heads , then wham !! , first carp just under 10 lbs ....getting friskier as the water warms . It looks like a lamprey mark on it ...never caught a carp with it before . Another one spit the hook and got off ....Then I caught this smallish carp that fought like a big ski ...took off at a super fast speed , back & forth from shore to 50' out ...thought I had a grass carp ! It looked different than the other carp ...smaller mouth , very silvery and a long softer dorsal ...maybe a cross breed or something.... Then , for the first time in over 50 years I caught a colourful one , quite a scrapper for a chunky corn fed carp .....sure didn't expect to catch that thing !! After a few more cats another carp took the corn , just over 10 lbs. ...jumped like a big ol' bucket mouth ! I sent 3 pictures to Tyler ....hope he got them ok .

    You would be surprised what you can catch in there once the water warms....big carp...big cats...I have seen but never caught gar pushing the 5 footer mark...and caught one of the biggest pike I have ever caught there in the 50 incher range.....sure fire way to hook something big....leave the net in the car 😆

    One of the Van's didn't have plates at all, and price stickers in the window so that obviously wasn't his. Can't be doing with arseholes so if he's down there next time I'll happily oblige him as I'm leaving and he'll be walking back to a car with a bad limp....act like a twat and you should be treated like a twat. 😊

    It would'nt surprise me at all. It has nothing to do do with public safety, but rather pure politics. Trudeau is just trying to ramp up the virtual signalling before the election to score some points with his base and to get accolades from his fellow feminist champion wannabes. We can't get rid of this guy fast enough! I'm sure I'd be labeled as an ignorant, misogynistic, and most likely racist for pointing this out.

    Beautiful day out

    Nice to see the sun shining and warmer temps , and for a change , the fish were taking the $Store corn , as well as worms . I think the bite is on Tyler ....but in the shallow waters. Carp are getting an attitude as the water warms . Oh yes ....the Smerch did it AGAIN !!!! ...left the parking lights on the van , and yup , dead , really dead battery . I had to pry Knightfisher away from his rod to get a boost from his Jeep . There's no warning beep in the old low tech van when lights are left on ..... One of the carp got even with me ......while trying to unhook the dorsal fin with those sharp barbs from the rubber net , the carp flipped and caught my upper thumb with the anal fin barbs & ripped a chunk of meat out of my hand ....lots of blood including some on my shades . ....must have been a nasty old hen who hates men !! 🖕

    These pieces of of crap need to learn a lesson! Its too .bad things need to be locked up bolted down put away .ya smerch you are absolutely right they steal to pawn stuff for cash to buy drugs.i bet ya if we pushed them down stole their drugs and sold them to by fishin lures we would get charged with assault , posession of a controlled substance , intent to trafficking, theft under 5000 lol and whatever else because we are productive members of society and can likely pay off the fines without wasting the courts time and also the government paid representation ! What a corupt crock of sh!+ our law enforcement really is .its a damn shame.

    Fishmas This Sat!!

    Well I stayed home on opener. My brother went to and east ditch and had a very good day with no crowds. I went out Sunday to another east ditch and went 8-9, and losing a monster that cart wheeled and peeled line like crazy. Fought it for about 10mins with my arms ready to fall off and had it worn out...so I thought another big run and leap and gone. Was a great day. I only tied 15 golf ball sized bags the night before cause I was tired figuring Id just use bead/worms jigs. Well they wanted nothing to do with anything other than chartruse bags. Water was dirty brown with about 8-10 vis, but no trouble finding fish. Most of them within 4-5 feet of the shoreline. Hooked a couple almost right at my feet. Weather was great..All but one fish were spawned out drop backs.
