    Toronto Spring fishing and Boat Show

    The show is fun. I try and take my boy every year and just cruise around and see the stuff on display hit the trout pond for the kiddo and geek out on all the gear. Never buy anything though because as stated above the “sales” are crap. Rather support local shows for tackle and whatnot. The one out in fort erie is pretty great. Not going to lie.

    Nice to get out

    Sounds like a nice night out!

    Labour Day weekend carping

    Got out yesterday and tried for about 2 to 3 hours until dark with no luck. Couple of bumps to get my heart racing but nothing else. As frustrated as I was it was still nice to sit by the water alone and decompress from work.

    Boat questions

    Thanks for all the replies guys! Really appreciate it. I do have trailering experience owning a AZ license but never launched a boat before so I will take that under advisement to go and watch the good and the bad. Last thing I want to be is “that guy” holding up the launch. All the other sound advice is really great and the budget might just have to grow a little bit if I can’t find something I like. ? I do own a yak that was my concession about 4 years ago when trying to purchase a boat, and while I still really enjoy my yak my kids want to get out on the water with me and with 4 kids I can’t just as easily disappear for 6 hours on the water like I used to. I’m going to dive into the internet depths of boat research now with the tips / info I’ve gained here and then I shall see what we come up with. Once I do get one I’ll make sure to take some pics and post for all to see

    Boat questions

    Hey guys so I’ve finally got my wife onboard with getting a boat, no pun intended. Only catch it has to be able to hold the family rather then a straight fishing rig. So I’m wondering where I should start ? What sizes and styles, makes etc. Budget is no more then 30k and would like to be able to tackle Erie / Ontario. I have 4 kids and the wife I guess would want to come too. Any suggestions? I’m just starting into the research stage and figured I’d ask the people that have the experience. Thanks in advance.

    I’m hoping to get out this week aswell might have to hit my honey hole just to try and recoup a lost season. We shall see!

    Labour Day weekend carping

    I’ve always had luck with using the floating corn closest to the hook Smerch. Tried it by the hair stop and no luck. Could be coincidence or just not enough times out with it but I’m superstitious anymore I’ve had the fewest caught fish this season in all my seasons I’ve fished. Maybe it’s because of work and family time I’m not fishing as much but when I do get out it’s a rarity to pull something in. ?

    Lost Musky on Elephant lake

    Sucks but it’s a story to tell for next time.

    Spooled ?

    Just was in Peters today and loaded up on some carp gear for hopefully a good outing today.

    Spooled ?

    Have yet to be spooled but have been close when first starting to fish for carp. That sounds like quite a rush though. I would be hitting that spot again soon!

    Carpin d'Gibb

    Let me know how they work. Was thinking of trying one out but wasn’t sure.

    Newbie to fishing.

    I’ve had some luck recently on martindale with frogs. The scum frog is my favourite. Nothing big but they hit the top water so it is fun. Your in the right spots just gotta keep at it. This summer has been strange as a whole.

    Former NHL Player Ray Emery drowns

    Such a shame at such a young age. Should always know the water your swimming in and have pfds on if your not a strong swimmer. ?
