  1. If they were in Erie they can get into Gibson. There used to be stores in TO that sold them live as well. I am sure if you know "someone" you can still get them.
  2. So I have put in quite a few hours searching for pike/bass/muskie this season and it has been a $#!t season. Most of the waters I have fished are all linked back to Lake Gibson, or the canal, or lake erie, or go back further ... lake st. clair and lake huron ... In my mind something was dumped that has killed off plenty of the life within Gibson/12 Mile/Martindale. Q. F*** YOU, you just suck at fishing ... A. Maybe, but talking to plenty of people the conclusion is all the same ... something is off in these waters. Q. Evidence? A. Today, fishing the 12 ... the water is down because of the rowing ... I saw no fish in the shallows, previous years they were fighting to attack my lures. The other thing I noticed is that when my lure hit the bottom, no gobies moved in to investigate, and to top it off I could not find/see one zebra mussel ... which got me thinking and I have not see many zebra mussels this year, let alone many gobies. The few times I have put a worm on ... I have reeled a full worm back in. On the subject of zebra mussels ... if they are lacking ... that would be why the water clarity has been pretty s**tty this year for those of us who like that system. Also I have seen a whole lack of minnows through this system this year. Q. Where? A. Anything that is an offshoot of Lake Gibson ... so that includes the 12 Mile and into Martindale Pond. I am thinking maybe there was an attempt to poison the Asian carp and it backfired, or some factory or farm dumped something they shouldn't have ... with how positive Erie has been for fishing it would be something coming in from the canal or in the Gibson area, doubt it would be anything from Erie. Or we just blame the cormorants and accept that those birds are the devil.
  3. Was nice talking to everyone out there … and congrats to Smerchly taking everyone to school in how to carp.
  4. 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".

    A few pike

    I am still in search of pike #1 this year … had one follow and tried to hit the spinnerbait, but it missed and it did not come back around for seconds.
  6. I am off for 3 weeks beginning Wednesday … looking forward to getting in a ton of pike and carp over that time … anyone want to get out let me know with a PM.
  7. On the east side (St. Catharines) you can fish the whole strip from the fence where the hydro generation is through to the fencing keeping people off the end of the pier. The marina seems to not want anyone fishing there based on some signs that were put up last year, not sure if that would still be the case. Basically if you can be there without having to trespass you can fish it. On the west side (Port Dalhousie) I don't know if you can fish technically off of the walk bridge, but basically from behind the restaurant down to wherever they have it fenced off. That parking lot, people have fished from there into the water behind the old factory.

    The cold front would probably shut the trout down combined with them being skittish since they would have only recently been dumped in.
  9. Port Dalhousie falls into Lake Ontario's rules. Zone 20 I think. If you have to jump a fence or barrier ... it is probably illegal. If you are talking about the little waterfalls. You can't fish within 75 feet of it and that includes casting within 75 feet of it. The trespassing is one charge and then fishing close to a dam would be another. People will fish it but if the MNR or NRP feels like talking to you, you are SOL. Also don't try the arguement of NO SIGNS ... they don't go up since they would be ripped down even faster.

    It is reflective of being a pond. Although spring fed there is no where for runoff to go, so overtime it fills in and gets shallower. Same could be said for dufferin islands in the falls. It has become very shallow. Both could probably use a dredging to help restore them.
  11. That is good news, but planned for an early finish and under budget three years out … give me a break, plenty of time for things the government is involved in to go wrong. I saw a local politician trying to say it was their doing for ontime and under budget.
  12. Looks like a Wels … stories of them reaching 600 pounds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wels_catfish
  13. Once bass seasons open, they are relatively easy fish to get assuming you don't care on size. One of the simplest spots (until the dog days of the summer hit) is Beaverdams … any of the ponds. No size to be had/found but good enough if you want quantity over quality. If you are looking to keep them for a feed … you might glow in the dark after consuming Beaverdams bass … for those I would say Niagara River, the smallies there are pretty easy to hook into.
  14. If you are talking these ones https://www.google.com/maps/@43.1492581,-79.3726529,357m/data=!3m1!1e3 I will be giving it a go once bass season is open. From what I have asked, it may appear to be sunfish only though.
  15. Depending on the location of your bedroom to the attic, they will move on with noise, so if you can put a speaker up there, it should drive them away.
