  1. Yes Valerie and I went to the pond yet again, started out slow, Valerie caught one small crappie, some sunfish and a perch. Rockfish dropped by, hey buddy, I think this place is growing on ya Dave went on his way, and about an 30 minutes later I finally caught my first crappie of the year. Then another one, and a few more, and Valerie was keeping pace. Then about seven other people showed up and we all were catching them. It was like a contest. Anyways Valerie and I caught at least 25 between us and lost at least ten right at the shore. All were released to swim another day. It was a good time. Daniel
  2. I think the way its set up is just fine. The longest from shore and in a boat. Many derbys are based on the longest fish. Lets just keep it simple.
  3. Hey BB, Valerie was fishing the tubes on the west side of pond two till about seven, then she joined me. I was fishing pond three about fifty yards north of the tubes. Might be there tonight, Valerie want me to pick up some minnows however I am quite late leaving for my job this morning
  4. Handy chart. Thanks for posting it Cliff
  5. We got skunked, but a guy at tubes was catching black crappies, about eight or so while we were there. The average size about eight inches. He was using very small minnows.
  6. I've never used downriggers before, so heres a silly question, how do you decide how deep you are suppose to drop them.
  7. Looks like jwl is on a mission he will have his 50 posts in no time, and yes he has lots of info in his post to, which is great, keep it up jwl. Daniel
  8. Wow !!!!! What a fish. Great job.
  9. I checked out the website for info on the fishing derby. It did not give the age range for the kids. Anyone know what it is? Thanks Daniel
  10. Thanks for the report Smerch. Hope the fishing picks up, the kids derby is in a few days, and my daughter could always use another rod and reel
  11. Some good info on this thread. Thanks guys.
  12. Nice crappie, well done. I'm still looking for my first of the year.
  13. Thorny trees.....I first thought you lost a fight with a large cat Handled the problem with the camera, however the batteries are now dead. These digital cameras eat batteries fast. Will take a picture of the jaw tomorrow and post it, and perhaps someone might be able to tell us what fish its from.
  14. Valerie (my daughter) and I went down to the ponds after a days work. She fished the tubes to start as she usually does. She caught alot of small fish there and met Bill there ( a regular who fishes there almost daily, nice guy), he mentioned he saw her on this web site A little later she is talking to some other guy after Bill left, apparently he's from Germany, forgot his name They continued to chat and catch fish, he got a nice size crappie. Meanwhile I am fishing the larger pond, checking on Valerie from time to time. About an hour goes by and Valerie brings this guy over for me to meet I look up and think, he's a little old for my daughter She says he recognized her from her picture with the pig perch on this website Well low and behold its Rockfish. Very nice meeting you Dave. We talked about fishing of course, compared some tackle, turns out we are both licenced gas fitters, well he is, I let my licence expire a couple years back. And being I am originally from Hamilton, we had a few other things to talk about However before we knew it the sun was going down and Valerie has to be up very early for school , so we had to end off and go our own ways. It was a really great visit, and Dave if your every down this way fishing, let me know and perhaps we can hit a few areas together. Mental note to self, think twice about posting a picture of my daughter on the WWW Daniel
  15. IBC, she swam away. We could not keep a mama like that. But that picture is sure a keeper
  16. Still working on picture sizing. This perch is 12 inches long, and fat, fat, fat. We never saw one this huge. Amazing what you'll catch around Niagara.
  17. Hoping I got the size smaller
  18. Here's my daughter holding the first picture of the pig. Can you guess what kind of fish it is, and where this secret location is Ok guys, I need some help here. I am using photo bucket for my pictures and don't know why the pictures are so large. Anyone have any pointers ?
  19. Hey dr_f, being that you liked this pussy, your really going to like my pig Will post it in a bit, have to figure what I did wrong with last post, picture was way to huge
  20. My daughter didn't want to take this one off her hook, can't say I blame her, ugly slimey thing. Wow, sorry about the picture size, don't know what happened there, still a greenhorn with pic posting.
  21. The water level at the beaverdams is up up up. Appears only about eight inches of the tubes are showing, and the shoreline is totally unwalkable. However with this huge influx of water, the clairity is alot better and the colour has a cool greenish hue.
  22. I'm not have any luck finding crappie around Niagara. Daughter and I have tried many spots but no luck. I don't except anyone to give up their honey holes, but if someone could suggest some general locations we would appreciate it. Daniel
  23. Pond #3 is the big pond on the right. However we catch catfish in all three ponds usually just about 10' from shore, with almost any kind of bait.
  24. Daughter and I tried about 4-5 places in welland, the old canal, ten gobies for our effort. Headed for beaverdams. Tried pond #2, Valerie caught lots of sunfish, three nice rock bass and a few small smallies. Mean time I fished across the road on pond #3 and caught four nice size catfish, one fat mother. They came within ten minutes then shut down. All in all a good outing, still haven't found any crappie or pike yet.
