  1. 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.
  2. It's a Riversider IM7 MH 8'6''. Has served me well till this outing.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Gates are open, and people using canoes and kayaks.
  7. Water is currently up to the doors of the building there. So ya flooded.
  8. If I had one of those, I wouldn't find time to fish
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Yes Bill, It was a tough decision, walking away from a rod with the tip bouncing frantically or......
  13. The Smerch and I planted our chairs on a local pond. Got into some carp and cats, as well as enjoying the wildlife waking up.
  14. Was a good busy time out there. For a while I thought I had Bill's number being up 3 fish to none, then 5-2, but slowly smerch pulled ahead. One day Bill, one day
  15. Seems most Canadians don't mind paying extra taxes. Have not heard of any marches or protests showing up in Ottawa. People have the power. Yet I hear nothing in the news. So I'm guessing Canadians are fine with the latest tax, or just apathetic.
  16. You will still need an etest Bill. I asked the person at the MOT when I had the jeep plated a few weeks back. The other vehicle was not ready per my omb2 scanner. I mentioned the scanner to you a few years back. I actually had many more codes then you have mentioned, but with the net and talking to a testing garage, I was able to prepare the vehicle and it passed no problem. Also, it really depends on where one goes for the test. Some places are just after the $$$ and won't educate one on the simplicity on getting a vehicle ready for said etest. Regardless, the useless test is now done, less one is running a small business with commercial plates. Some garages are about making money, while others are actually about doing the best for their customers.

    Cats

    Quite the thrill hooking into a big fish in the Sportspal. The adrenaline is just a pumping. A lot of times you don't see the fish for a good five minutes or so. The sportspal is pretty much unsinkable, and you can stand in it as well. Best canoe for fishing, extremely stable with the flat bottom. The fun continues when you can't unhook the cat, carp, drum etc at the side of the canoe, so you have to bring it in, then at times all hell breaks loose
  18. Sorry to hear that Cliff. Hopefully someone takes it over.
  19. Here's a crazy idea. Get hundreds of people calling up the cop shop, not 911, and tell them you are about to have a few drinks, and just want to make sure no one has called in about you. As crazy as this idea is, it would create change lol. Of course I'm against drinking and driving, but the laws have got too suppressive. One is now taking a chance having a drink with a meal while eating out. May as well have alcohol free weddings and other such functions. Sports bars will be a no no. IMO these laws are getting too extreme. PAPERS PLEASE is where we are heading.
  20. I can't believe some of the comments on here.... push him in the river, slash his face with a hook, cut his line....really. All that for a fish. The river is huge, long, all kinds of spots. Give your heads a shake. It's fishing, he's not taking your car, or robbing you whatever. Just move along to another spot if you can't reason with the guy. Unbelievable.
  21. Excellent business idea. Stocking stuffers.
  22. The UN wants to ban guns world wide, except for the enforcers. Justin wants a seat on the security council. This will make him look good. Using this ploy of ridding guns just might give him the edge he needs in 2019. Regardless if he wins or not, eventually all guns will be illegal. The writing is on the wall.
  23. Almost seems that way Bruce.
  24. 3% is what I use Bill. Any type of ACV will work. Thing is when Angel gets in the jeep after a walk I can still smell the ACV a bit and then have a desire for some fries....
