  1. Awesome. Glad you got out.
  2. Does anyone know if the lower river launch is usable now? The water level was so high last time that the dock was overturned and partly submerged. Thanks.

    Pike pic

    Great fish, sir.
  4. I truly hope you have a great time in this new chapter. Best of luck!
  5. My son and I hit Erie this weekend. Fish were shallow-17 to 25ft. Trollers weren't getting much. Jigging spoons was the ticket. Average was 4 pounds. Biggest was 8 and change.

    A few pike

    I won a hat, mug, shirt and a reel one year. That was fun.
  7. I’m jealous. That orange one is stunning. Great catches.

    A few pike

    Good luck, Steve! My last pike tournament was an nfn pike challenge!

    A few pike

    My son and I have gotten into some pike over the last few days from shore and canoe.. Lots of fun. All on jerkbaits. Water is still very cold.
  10. Great job. Perch are a worthy compromise for sure!
  11. Anybody fishing Lake Ontario for trout? Took the boat out last week and caught some browns just out of Port Dalhousie. Watched some follows and caught fish. My son got this one just east of the mouth.
  12. Tyler. Can you please respond to my messages regarding baits I have for sale. They are not showing up in the classifieds. Thank you.

    Cat fish?

    Fished the Welland river on Friday towards Wellandport. Fresh cut chubs. 7 fish. Smallest was 9 pounds. Biggest was 16. Pic of my son with a few.
  14. 5 for 6 on browns at port the other day. All on spoons. Watched 2 follow and hit in the clear water. That’s always fun.
  15. I fish port Dalhousie all winter long and for the past 8 years or so with spoons almost exclusively. For every bow, you will get 20 browns. I don't mind because I target browns anyways. That being said, this year has been slower than others. I fish differently to target rainbows. If you are worried about losing baits, swap out the treble for a siwash. It will save you money if you fish deep. Almost all my fish come from slack water or very mild back current. Previous years I had some 10 fish days but not this year. Good luck!
  16. Great endeavour. Good for you. I hope it goes well.

    tackle swaps

    Thanks everyone.

    tackle swaps

    Does anyone know of any tackle swaps going on in the area? Is Hamilton doing theirs again? I know of the Fort Erie one.
  19. I've been fishing trout the past month. I fish spoons exclusively mid to late winter. I target browns and catch the occasional rainbow. Got a coho a few days ago. I do not fish spoons conventionally. I drift them and run the risk of snags so swap out the treble for a siwash. Slower this year compared to last 5 or so. Still got a bunch though.
  20. Don’t scrap it. Such things can be fixed. And not for the ridiculous price you quoted. Best of luck. I’d love to stop by and assist if you wish.
  21. Try to get floating mono. Sinking line is a pain as you have to reel in a lot of slack to get your hook set. The drag on the line also inhibits the flow of the float. Sigloi makes some floating line I think. Try peters tackle.
  22. I float with a baitcast outfit. Use thill stops. They go through the guides. Tie the stop tight so it does not slide down the line as it passes through guides. If line does not pass freely from spool I mend it out or pull it out so line passes without resistance from the spool. I love my setup. Spray guides in ice situations so stop passes through guides better. Weight distribution of sinkers etc in big water is not crucial for me. I use one or two bigger split shot about 18 inches above business end. Fluor tippet is a good idea in clear water. Good luck!
  23. I can only catch males lately. Got a nice one last night
  24. First congrats on the catches! It's strange that you can get charged for transporting fish to an alternate location but in tournaments this is exactly what happens. Time to adopt onboard weights with referees in tow. This system is slowly on the rise in the US. However it is a small blessing in that tournaments held in the welland river have displaced fish from the bottom end. Hopefully some of these tournament fish dumped at Chippewa launch will make it to the bottom end of the system.
