    Minnow Run

    That's funny....going back about 15 years ago..I think they got a little better....left the fertilizing ...rearing pond...stocking up to us...and trusted the knowledge of the old timers and a couple of us at the time..youngtimers back then in the stevensville....port colborne...and dunville..clubs to work together on it....mnr just tagged them....shocked the water.....we where behind in the catch boat netting them up...then moved like 1500 of them over the dam when the fish ladder was busted...kept a few for brood stock.....oh...and back to your regularly scheduled program...lol...hope you got the bait you wanted...and got into a few 🎣
  3. Cool pics and story of the adventure. .thanks for sharing.....yum....when is dinner?

    Minnow Run

    That's awesome...I spent a few years with the mnr and local conservation club...electro fishing...tagging...and raising fry then stocking..for the walleye restoration project in the welland river.....there's a few perks that come along with giving back to our resources for sure....like learning some great fishing spots....and sources of bait for sure
  5. There's just about every fish you can catch in the welland river...from rock bass to big muskies....its not that great by the town bridge....too busy and the current sucks.. lol....travel around there's lots of spots to pull off the side of the road to the qew bridge...the the aqueduct in port robie....and it starts all over again on the other side.....the welland river....aka is a huge river....check it out on a map and see how far it goes....lol...

    Carp meet up

    Have to check with the lil woman.....and no not to see if I'm "allowed" to go fishing..Haha.....to see what her work schedule is about wheels...we still juggling 1 car right now.....and it's not even 5AM....I'm sure she would be impressed if I woke her up right now to ask her on my way out the door for work...lol....then again if I catch her half asleep.......😉...or I will just spend the next couple days bugging the crap out if her around the house......problem solved 🎣

    Minnow Run

    If you want big bait for pike for example....use a minnow trap with some bread in it...there is usually some nice sized chubs in the mix at the bottom there

    A few pike

    Gotta love that....I'm much older than my little brother...and got him hooked on fishing since he was little....and now passing it down to his own child......spring pike fishing can be super fun and you never know when you might get into a big one.....the nfn pike off days used to be fun....seems too me I may have won a few of those challenges along the way....give this one to pauly for putting out the first gator pic
  10. It's fun to crack the code trying to target certain species in certain areas that's for sure....really makes you think about presentation and breaking down the water you are fishing....structure...current..depth..clarity...temps ect

    What to do

    Education would sure help.....I've seen this season people fishing...seeing someone else catch a nice fish....then ask what it was......if you are fishing you should be able to identify species for sure....or how do you remotely know if it is legally in season or not...what your limits are ect....I have thought for years that you should have to show a valid fishing liscence in order to buy fishing gear....you can't just go to the store and randomly by ammo

    A few pike

    Right on...jerk baits are great when the water is still cold....nice to see a gator report.
  13. You would be surprised what you can catch in there once the water warms....big carp...big cats...I have seen but never caught gar pushing the 5 footer mark...and caught one of the biggest pike I have ever caught there in the 50 incher range.....sure fire way to hook something big....leave the net in the car 😆
  14. I have a park behind my place where there is a community garden...the town prepped it all up a couple weeks ago.
  15. Sounds like a fun day smerch...some spots should be putting out some giants as the water warms up...they can give you a decent workout the way some fight
  16. Jwl1

    What to do

    You can only have a limit for each person that has a valid fishing liscence....or those who are exempt...eg....kids....seniors...handicapped.....who dont require a liscence....that being said....the limits for everyone aren't supposed to be caught and kept by the same person....limits are for individual anglers....and I also believe on a conservation liscence...possession limit on walleye is 2.....so if you have 2 in the freezer you cannot go and keep 2 more.....its the time of year the mnr frequents a few spots in Niagara....hopefully they catch up to this guy
  17. Must have if brother and sis hang out..let alone fish together 😆... unless the real story is they where fighting over a picture and sister ended up in the drink 😮....nice going on the day
  18. Hey thanks man.....and thanks again cliff for sharing a great fishing adventure....not the best conditions on a cold front but we adapted and it paid off.....I have a bunch of pics of you with fish on my phone I will email you

    Lake Levels

    Wow that sucks bill....I bet alot of people up in muskoka way ect aren't starting thier summer camp season very well....was going to help my brother bring his boat to buckhorn a couple weeks ago.....suggested he check with the park first.....he was informed that he wouldn't be able to get it in the little road that goes into the park.
  20. Jwl1

    What to do

    I would have no probs turning him in....and sit there calling on the guy every day.....wouldn't be the first time I called out a poacher....there's rules for a reason....and being a "foreigner"....for lack of a better term is no excuse .....added point....you said "last year".....obviously it's been going on and on and the person in question knows they are breaking the law and will continue to do so.....too bad we couldn't arrange a bunch of people to go call this perpetrator out ....not to cause an altercation but just to help this person feel like an idiot....make it well known verbally to everyone around that he is a poacher....
  21. Considering we went in the rain....waters weren't up super high....and still running clear....maybe a slight amber tinted in some spots.....the walking on the other hand was a bit muddy... slick...and the odd surprise foot drop to the thigh..lol....all part of the adventure
  22. Remember years back there was a portable fish finder that you hooked up to a rod and casted out....lol.....myself I like the challenge of finding and figuring out a fishing hole.....weren't no sofistomacated contraptologies when i grew up learning to fish and i do alright 😁
  23. Happy to say I cooked up those tasty morsels and brought to a potluck dinner I just came back from and it was a hit....simple panfried in seasoned flour with a bit of lemon....and as one who wants to be able to spend many more years enjoying the fishery.....we just kept a few.....not even a limit...small fraction of what we caught that day....and every last bite was enjoyed
