  1. Thanks for all the funny responses, made me laugh for sure Had the name of the plant on the tip of my tongue, and at the same time rolled up one of the leaves of the plant and....what what was I going to say..... I'm sure it will come to me...
  2. Wow, really eh, what are the chances. I have numerous 'Brand' name rods, but like this one the best for canoe fishing. Over the years this rod pulled in many pike, channel cats, one high flying musky, and many other fish. What species of fish were you targeting with this rod ?
  3. Once in a while I post pics of this amazing plant on the forum. Not many people get to see something like this, except the people in my neighborhood. It's always a pleasure watching people walk by, stop, stare, continue and stop again for that second look. This is the 15th year for this plant. By late fall all the leaves fall off and all that's left is a long straight pole. Each year in early May I cut down the stock to the lowest bud forming and see how it grows each year. The plant usually reaches it's maximum height in 3-4 months....wild. Last year I let a sucker plant grow, and currently it passed the original plant by about a foot. This year the sucker plant reached a height of 15'6''. The leaves currently measure 24 inches wide. With just the one plant, as posted before, the leaves grew a whopping 34 inches wide. Amazing. Now you know why I call it the Amazing Plant. ps: Sorry if some of you thought it was of the 420 variety.
  4. It's a Riversider IM7 MH 8'6''. Has served me well till this outing.
  5. Was quite the outing for sure. Very comfortable on the water, regardless of the high temps. And of course the beauty of the area makes it very enjoyable. However I never had so many mishaps occur as did. Quite a number of snags, handling the Pal with the gusts of winds regardless of the 40 electric made for creative maneuvers. Lost 30 or so yards of powerpro line. Line just snapped when bringing in the bait. Never happened to me before. Any breaks in the past was always at the lure or leader. Wind blew off my tilley hat, and with the wind blowing us around, got to it just as it was sinking. Later as Bill mentioned, my rod exploded to my shock. Lost various tips of rods here and there, but never in the middle. Then about 3:30 there was about 30 racing scull/shells coming towards us, but keep a good distance away. Few minutes later another barrage of shells came towards us, and the coach in the tinny had to tell a number of the crews to watch out for us. And of course don't I get a snag, and the Sportspal blowing in the wind, and a eight man boat aiming to T-bone us, lol, it was quite funny. Was surprised we didn't get any fish, especially when in the past, where many cats and sheepheads were caught. Enjoyable time out, lots of birds and wild life to see, and lots of stories between Bill and I. PS: Bill, I picked up the same rod today, I just have so much affinity for this model lol.
  6. Was out a few hours a couple of days over Labour day weekend. On Sunday, met up with Tyler, Bill, and Joe. While there was plenty to talk about, not so with the fish. Only two carp caught between the four of us. Still it was nice to get out with the guys and meet Tyler. On Monday tried Gibson again for a few hours with Joe, and managed two small carp. 9 and 10 lbs. Carp fishing has been tough this year, but then again so are pike which I target a lot.
  7. Nice meeting you Gaz, as well as your sister and brother inlaw. Would of been nice to land something, but not in the cards. Looking forward to hooking up in the local ponds in our canoes.
  8. Gates are open, and people using canoes and kayaks.
  9. Water is currently up to the doors of the building there. So ya flooded.
  10. If I had one of those, I wouldn't find time to fish
  11. I have been spraying Angel, my malinois with apple cider vinegar cut 30% with water. Spray her legs and underside, tail, and cover her eyes and quick spray at the head, they love exploring, and only had two ticks on her in about 6 years. She got those two, because I forgot to sprayer her one day. I also spray the bottom of my pants and shoes. Just a quick spray, not wet.
  12. Smerch and I have been down there numerous times and apart for two carp, nothing but cats and some rudd. But it should pop any time, I figure within a week, two at the most, jmo
  13. This is an interesting read on water levels of L. Ont., if the link works. http://blog.syracuse.com/outdoors/2013/11/lake_ontario_water_level_contr.html
  14. Yes Bill, It was a tough decision, walking away from a rod with the tip bouncing frantically or......
