    These people can carry all this garbage down to the waters edge with them yet they dont take the empty containers ,wrappers etc,away when they leave .so simple to put a couple grocery bags in your fishing bag ,tackle box or pocket and pick up the garbage when you leave.ive yelled at a few people about it Leaving their worm containers and coffee cups .one time a guy left 3 beer cans and while he was walking away i said hey u got a quarter i can bum off you and he said no so i said if you pick up your cans and takem the the beerstore youd have one 😜he wasnt thrilled but he tookem

    Whis is this forum so slow?

    This has been posted elsewhere on this site ... but no MODs have commented ... Fish Forum Slow And I mean slow in terms of speed loading, not the posters, the quality, or the quantity of posts.

    Me too!! i like finding out what everyone else is doing in andaround Niagara, even if I don't get to go to many of those places. i personally would hate to see it go to Facebook, because I refuse to do Facebook - don't like the lack of security on it!!

    By adding "recreational" weed to the pot , they keep making policing more complicated . They failed at curbing it's usage so "if you can't beat them, join'em" , and rake in billions of pesos . So , between booze , drugs and Iphone usage I don't exactly feel safer on the roads . I think I need a bigger truck ! Our new flag ....going green

    thats definitely terrible news. It’s been a great couple years meeting up and fishing with Nfn members, two of which I spend all my fishing time with. It would be nice to see the site keep going.

    Summer Fishing Highlights

    It's been a while since I've posted last. I moved out of the Niagara region a bit ago. Since I've been back I've been doing a lot of fishing in Welland on the rec canal which is a new body of water to me. I wanted to share some highlights from the summer that I just put into a little video. A lot of these are from the Welland Rec Canal where the fishing has been hot. The pike are from my first time at Valens Lake. They weren't very big but boy were they beautiful! https://youtu.be/voRjoIY5Wnw

    Price Increases

    Can't say $ith here WC .....haha I have been retired for 26 years as of Christmas eve this year . ....never worked a day since , and let me tell you those 26 years have passed by very quickly . Unless you have some good investments be prepared to live on less each year as prices and taxes will always be greater than the average pension . Fishing can be a very cheap pastime if you keep it simple .( can of corn & a hook )

    True stuff JW .... I was involved with the salmon fry for a few years at Port Dal....interesting stuff watching them grow so fast in the pens ,even though I haven't fished for salmon in decades . My son Dan is still doing a great job with the nesting boxes for wood ducks....many stories to tell about the owls or bees that took over the boxes . We now have the ever growing threat of new technology to find fish , spots, and techniques . Fish finders now show live movement , we have GPS , way points , underwater cameras , self hook set rigs for ice fishing , and of course the WWW . with thousands of You Tube videos , Iphones , Twitter , Facebook , & can live stream a video from the middle of Lake Timbucktoo showing your exact location and netting that big one . The new kid on the block is the drone which can visit me on the lake or shore to see how I'm rigging my minnow ......anyone want to buy some way points ?? My biggest concern as many of us here know is garbage , specifically FISHING LINE . The butts and Tim cups don't bother me anymore as it's a lost cause . I have a good picture of an insane amount of fishing line on shore, glistening from the sunshine but can't post it over thumbnail size..... It would take a good raking to gather it up . As JWL said , it only takes a few or few dozen to spoil it for all the decent anglers who respect our environment . It's great to have cleaner water , healthy fish but our shores also need some tlc as well . Maybe one day the MNR will have a big fleet of drones to catch the nimrods who don't care........Too all the people who do care and take part in stocking/restoring our natural resources .... to you !

    There's the part people don't see...being a volunteer for almost 5 years when the walleye restoration project I was involved in was taking place....all the volunteer hours...the clean up....the habitat restoration that goes into it before a single fish benefits from it......then there are stocking efforts after it is deemed to be suitable habitat...those of you who get to pull up....find an easy access fishing hole ....hop on the internet for locations...pointers ect....have no idea what goes into it....a few members here do...I know smerch can appreciate it for example as it was his son whom I was involved doing it with along with a few of the old nfn members.....3 conservation clubs...and happy to say...that particular effort was a success and far reached its goal...... now imagine the effort involved in this project........I myself totally appreciated and applaud these efforts....so no offence but all of the non locals to these areas who log on to sites like this.....mark some directions down on the GPS....pull up as you toss your timmies cup on the ground should appreciate the effort and countless man hours that made this possible...and also that it only takes a few idiots to get it taken away.........who knows...next fish you catch may be the result of a direct effort from someone on this very site......I know I appreciate it and all the effort that goes into a sport we all love.....here's an example.....those of you who landed a nice trout in port d...... thanks to the game and fish...you may be casting beside someone who had a direct hand in putting that fish in your net instead of waiting for the report on when they where pumping them out of a truck into the harbor and driving on down......a restoration project in hammy harbor is a huge undertaking......again thanks for the post.....and all the effort involved..who knows I may have you to thank for the next trophy I catch

    That's awesome to hear... a few years back I was part of a walleye restoration program where we electro fished with the mnr... took DNA samples... lip tagged...pit tagged....moved fish above a dam...and used some fish for samples for hatchery stock..where we raised fry in a pond then transported the fingerlings to the designated stocking area... it was a great feeling to spend a couple years giving back to our local fishery

    Well this is just f**ked! Returning bottles to the Beer Store? Beware of possible breath test by police Police in Canada can now demand breath samples in bars, at home I am all for eliminating drinking and driving within reason, but with how we seem to be going, you can't even have a beer in your own house now. Before anyone screams THAT WILL BE DEFEATED IN COURT or IT IS AGAINST OUR FREEDOMS ... read both articles and think about the consequences. I enjoy a few different beers, most nights having one or two beers at home before calling it a night, so last night I went out with a buddy, we had a drink, shot the sh*t, and I went off to home where I cracked another two before bed ... so that would have been three pints in about 2.5 hours. Or nights where I am staying in and watching the hockey game ... depending on how the Leafs are playing (or giving me anxiety), I may have upwards of six while watching the game ... If I had someone with a vendetta against me, they could have called the cops HE WAS DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED and it is up to myself to prove otherwise ... the engine would be warm as the car is in a garage, I definitely would be over the limit (since they can account for time in their calculations) and such ... Now the question is what happens if you choose to not answer your door? Well I am sure they would be able to obtain a warrant, just a matter of if it falls into the two hour window. So in time the case would make it to the courts, where I imagine it would eventually be overturned but life as I know it would be over, there would have been the license suspension, which means my job is terminated since I require a valid license for it, I would basically be unemployable since my name would be out there as being caught drinking and driving, and you can't erase The Google. Regardless of the trial outcome, anyone going through a hiring process has their name googled at some point or another, and the first few results are all they look at. BUT THAT ISN'T RIGHT/FAIR ... prove it in court that you were the best candidate and they discriminated against you ... unless you know the rest of the talent pool ... you have no clue and won't be able to, or you have deep pockets that can afford the fight. A coworker just got back from Poland where you can't operate a vehicle with any alcohol in your system and it is obvious we are going that way, but the infrastructure of public transit is not growing enough, the bus system in Niagara is a joke, taxis cost a small fortune to go across the city, and if you choose to use an unlicensed cab, the wait time can be hours. I love to have a beer or two with friends, especially if we go out for dinner, but I will now be sticking to ice tea as it is not worth the hassle to even think about. Probably much less going out and more staying in now. If I lived in the GTA where the public transit is better, a whole different world. At the end of the day, driving is a privilege, but the real dangers are still out there with all you @$$holes who run the red lights, speed, and/or drive those e-bikes that are unlicensed. The roads are far from slick but there is some snow out there ... motorcycles seen today while driving ... 0 ... @$$holes on e-bikes who are ignoring all traffic rules ... 3.

    "One" Tim coffee @ $1.50 per day = $500 per year ......plus about 3 tanks of gas @ 10 min. per day at a drive through . My cost ....zero ....make my own coffee at home ...5 cents per cup . That's a lot of fishing tackle gone down the toilet . Now....add on 300 doughnuts .... ...ya , so $20 per yr. is about 4 stops at Timmies . (average) . I think we would need more than that .....
