    Angelo will make sure he gets to his spot that day, but he won't tell you that (just like our PM travelling to another province to go to his tax payer funded cottage). You want to go fishing? Go. You don't? Stay home. Enjoy making choices while you can.

    Ya me neither. But I also would support fishermen getting fined if they are not social distancing.

    The last comment I read said it all ...... "I am sorry but even though you are well respected and you made your point well read to fit your views you still come off like the rest of the fear pushers most people can control there personal space yes as always there will be those that don’t and I would hope that the police and fellow anglers do their part to make sure we are all safe , but it still needs to be up to us to self regulate not the government and I would hope that you remember you are where you are because of all of us" He paints us anglers with a wide brush , carte blanch , no ands , ifs or buts ! These draconian "laws" don't allow for any discussion . If we don't fight back we will never need lawyers to argue our case ..... Of course we don't want big crowds of anglers fishing shoulder to shoulder (and as Viola inferred ....all pissed up on beer ! Mr.Viola ....we know the score , give us some credit will ya !!

    I like that they rifled off a bunch of bodies of water and areas that are popular and known to be busy...and may have even given some web surfers a tip on some spots to try.....divert all the crowding to those areas......not one of the areas mentioned are where I planned to go....lol

    And the city of Welland IS letting you fish it right now, just social distancing.

    Simple...just dont go anywhere that is busy...has a parkinglot...is in a conservation area or recreational park setting..not new news...we been hearing that for weeks..lol.....so if you do...you are just plain dumb and deserve a ticket...there is a partial solution to any travel involved....be prepared with everything you need before you go.....dont stop at timmies....dont stop at the store....and dont stop to gab along the way....stay away from other people in general.....take what you need from home and go.....if you get questioned...tell them you are an alcoholic and need to use the essential services of the beer store...lol

    It is all about the tact and attitude. You give them the riot act as initially said ... expect a ticket.

    Not signing that either. But the all spots named will be gong shows guaranteed. I would expect local municipalities to have law enforcement step up patrol if not block off the known hotspots. That being said, to delay the start of season is just crazy. The opener weekend is for most a tradition or a get together more than a hardcore fishing day. If I hit any of the known spots i wait until midweek after opener many of the creeks are dead. On opener weekend I have 2 small tribs already planned out where I can hike for miles and chances of running into anyone is slim to none. It's up to us to use common sense, fish alone and distance ourselves but it can be done..

    Clearly an example of a ridiculous fine! I think the reason our government has made a large majority of the “social distancing “ rules, is to protect us from the stupid people who just don’t get it! Last weekend my neighbour had a birthday party with a yard full of people! And there were kids reaching through the fence to pet my dog! For those that don’t know, mammals can carry the virus. Some people’s lack of brain power amazes me!!

    Fining people $880 is over the top . $150 would be more reasonable , on par with fishing without a license . You can toss a ton of garbage in a lake and wouldn't get fined $880 .....or get caught speeding 40 km over the limit and pay less ! The "elites" can laugh off an $880 fine but that kind of fine hurts the whole family . UNREASONABLE !

    First off...fishing seasons are put in place for optimal reproduction of the species...and not because too many people show up...if that's the case our steelie season on the niagara which is open all year round would be shut down....oops too many people here year after year...better change the season.....or close it....all the places that are mentioned on the rant from mr violin guy..are all well known places...with easy access...and all within proximity of a highly populated area....they have been busy for decades and will continue to be busy until the fishing dries up and they actually have to rethink the regs..and limits ect....the issue is potential crowds anywhere not just at a busy well known fishing hole...doesnt matter what activity anyone in the crowd is doing....I'm an avid trout angler and can say I have never been to the places mentioned on the soap opera edition of fishin canada...why?....because everyone on the fishing planet knows they are ridiculously busy....if I want to fish at a busy fishing hole I already have one close to home...haha....our niagara steelhead season is the only time ever I will fish in a crowd.....think about it..unless I have made plans with some of the people I know on here for many years..or participate in an nfn get together.....noone pretty much runs into me out fishing...why?...because I have spent decades finding spots that nobody goes to....lol...I choose to fish with the people I went with not 100 other people...lol...I'm definitely not sitting here wishing i could go fishing at any of those spots...but still wishing on trout opener in a couple others🎣

    Used to take my son there when he was a kid.........I didn't think about this place, as I was looking for a spot to get out with my grandson.................I'm happy that this came up as a conversation..................

    Please explain why we should sign this ... because you don't want someone else to catch a trout if you can't get out? I will guarantee you that various municipal forces will be out and about at all the popular streams watching for social distancing and checking where you are coming from, because driving a few hours out of your way for a troutie or two will be classified as unneeded travel.

    Like Snags said. the possible fish. (keeping only in season fish of course) Water still cool. Water drops pretty deep short distance from shore. So depends on your method of fishing would dictate where you should fish.

    Yes, I believe that was the segue from the Olfactory Senses article (which also explored using scents on lures), so it all tied in together, but separate articles.

    Preparing for my next outing

    If you can "remembe"r back that far Mike , you are NOT old yet . I remember getting kicked off a bus in the late 50's as my cousin and I had a stinky carp inside an ice cream cone box ,and the box got soggy with slime and blood ,and the carp fell on the floor and slid down the isle towards the driver ......we walked the rest of the way home and gave the fish to a neighbour who asked us to catch a carp for him ! We used worms , a cheap 6' glass or steel rod and casting reel with black nylon line . Our left thumb worked as a "pressure" drag . Carp fishing techniques have crossed the "pool" from Europe and seem to be catching on here more each year . No other fish gets treated like a queen and has the largest menu to choose from .....

    I think it is great that they have set aside the Welland Recreation Canal from power boats. Very progressive thinking. Fishing from a canoe or non powered boat can be very productive and relaxing. Jet Boats, water skiers, and wake boarders have ruined many a peaceful canoe fishing expedition for me in the lower Niagara below Queenston. Kudos to the Welland City Council for progressive green thinking...
