  1. There's tonnes of those water snakes down the niagara gorge...have seen some huge ones over the years......that turtle looks pretty mean...haha....I'm sure lots of us here have had fish on a stringer get attacked by a big turtle
  2. Good thing we dont have alligators 😲... cool pics
  3. If you get a chance to fish the boardwalk or up near the dam on the st Mary's....use some of the same bottom bounce techniques you would use on the niagara....if you can find them...buzz bomb jigging baits can slay em up there....you will loose a couple though..Haha...parts of the river run pretty fast in that stretch...some guys even fish the boardwalk using portable clamp on downriggers....just drop down a roe bag or rapala and wait...lol....its almost frustrating when the pinks are in heavy....you can literally see hundreds of them in the water and fight for a nibble sometimes..haha....if you go up by the powerhouse there is a fish ladder....and also a huge lamprey trap.....its a huge tease when you look down off the side of the road and see a cloud of pinks.....under that...whitefish pushing the 15lber or more range...then the huge chinook shadows lurking at the bottom underneath that.....huge tease cuz you cant fish there...but it's fun to look at......after a couple days with a guide....and just looking around a bit yourself...you will find some wicked fishing options....you would be surprised at all the options from past sudbury to wawa right along side the road.....you could always tell the wife "you gotta stop for a pee"....haha...along with all the little spots littered with splake....(put and take fish for a reason....they cant reproduce.....stocked purely for fishing.....and if you dont "take them".....eventually the will stop "putting" them.....along with that however are some of the most beautiful and biggest natural run brookies I have ever seen....super dark black...bright red fins.....if you aren't opposed to stopping for a pee....or a sandwich...and just happen to have an ultra light set up ready to go with a tiny spinner....or float and piece of worm you can get some fish of a lifetime for sure.....look for the areas with small Rapids or falls on the side of the road....stick your hand in.....if the water is a cold spring....try it out....take a few steps into the woods and look for small pools.....even rock ledges......bring a whistle or something to make noise with in some of those spots....you never know when a black bear might decide to see what you are up too....specially if you stumble upon some blueberry bushes that time of year....lol..they dont like people..just yell loud or blow a fox40...they will go away...haha... . .
  4. In the st Mary's...boardwalk down to the locks should be piling in with pinks...chinooks and big whitefish that time of year.....also if you want to try your hand at some decent pike....go to belleview park...there is a shallow bay around the middle of the park...its about 3 or 4 feet deep at best...spinnerbaits just before dark and about an hour after......on the way up to wawa look for the signs in the little ponds and ditches on the side on the hwy where the ministry stocks splake for a put and take fishery...a few spots have like street signs in the water encouraging people to fish.
  5. Nice markings on that one...solid chunky fish....cool to see the different patterns on niagara muskies
  6. Looks like I'm going to have to get our with you soon bill....working nights has gotten in the way of fishing for sure....things are easing up a bit at work with the odd night off early ...perhaps a weekday next week......be nice to get out ....catching a couple fish is just a bonus....lol.
  7. Great shots....gotta love the mighty niagara....also agree with the comments in the water being a little better policed
  8. I'm trying to post pics but cant....lol
  9. Couple pics from last summer around there
  10. Chemong probably the most overfished of the trilakes....lots of pan fish that will attack your baits before anything else has a chance to get at it....lol....flipping some docks sometimes puts out the odd decent largie...but lots of small ones.....near the narrows can put out some decent walleye this time of year.
  11. They should put a deposit on timmies cups....then the shopping cart pushing...bicycle riding trailer pulling overnight cleanup crew can line up in the morning and cash them in.. 🤣🤪...the government can cash in on it if they let them sort them all out in the beer store parkinglot🤔😂
  12. Always pick up after myself and then some....have often brought garbage bags when fishing the Niagara glen and took some time on the way back up the path to clean up....biggest culprits...timmies cups and water bottles...I'm also a smoker but my butts go in my pocket...a little effort goes a long way for sure
  13. Awesome man...great birthday gift for sure....sounds like the fishing was fast and furious
  14. Down the gorge today there is a search going on....the signs say stay on the path for a reason.....those rocks can get pretty slick....improper footwear makes for a good trip hazard.. ..its not worth the selfie that's for sure. .I grew up fishing the Niagara gorge pretty much all over....you gotta respect the force of the river on it's best day
  15. Sometimes its,all in the adventure....and worth the trip for some fresh cold water fish...this sausages sound kind of interesting....may taste similar to jambalaya on a bun...lol
