  1. A first for me. Used a few different lures and had one hit. Decided to use my #5 Vibrax which doesn't get much use. First cast fish on, a sheephead of all things. Well at least I know I won't have the white stripe today. Second cast same area, pike on, nice size as well. A few more casts and nothing. Moved around using different lures, after a half hour, back to the earlier spot, and yep, put the Vibrax back on. Few casts later another pike. Nice I thought. Few more casts yet another pike. Feeling pretty good, that's for sure. Decided to change

    Agreed! I’ve spent a considerable amount of time reading into this. Farmed salmon is actually higher in toxins and antibiotics than wild. Since fish is a regular part of my families diet , I want to make sure what we’re ingesting in the best for us. There’s a reason why farmed fish is cheaper. Prime example look at tilapia, you can buy it for next to nothing at grocery stores and a lot of times is on special at restaurants. I absolutely will not buy farmed fish. I’ll eat A salmon out of Lake Ontario way before I’ll buy farmed salmon. Will also taste way better !

    I bet there’s some dying black salmon making its way through some sushi dishes as of recently 😯.

  6. The Buffalo fish as most know, belong to the sucker family and are a native North American species. Common telling sign is ' no ' whiskers, whereas carp have them. Now the question is, is this a big or small mouth Buffalo sucker. Any help distinguishing between the two would be appreciated Weighed in at 19 lbs

    New swim

    Been fishing my usual spots this season and not doing too well. So I decided something needs to change. Guys that have been doing well this year are prebaiting spots before they fish them. So i decided I’m going to bait a new swim for the month of October and really only fish here. Second time baiting it and first time fishing it and the alarm is going off. Nice fight no long runs and staying down I was thinking this better not be a Cat. 11lb4oz common. Not the biggest fish but nice when something works out. Looking forward to fishing here the rest of the month and hopefully a couple more

  12. Well , the two pikateers were at it today ! The pike were really avoiding the canoe as they saw the smerch was there !! The knightfisher hooked into a nice one on cast # 567 , a nice 26" er ! As I was approaching my 1000th cast after trying every lure in my arsenal , I finally hooked into one ....for a few seconds , and off it went (felt like a 20 lb.ski ) ...still waiting for the shot I took for Mr. Knightfisher . ..... ( pike whisperer) ) Beauty day , lots of wind , leaves on the water and beautiful colours !!

  13. Are you sure about that? Think about the farmed salmon environment, what they're fed and what their overall health detriments are like. Kind of like basa (super cheap fish). Research it and see why. 🤢

    Water was very high & fast & about 1 ft. viz. , using 2 oz. of lead but changing currents still moved weight about ....using corn bags for carp ,then shrimp for channels , or anything else . It got very noisy down there as several big jet liners passed by just above the clouds about 5 minutes apart . That spot is usually clean of garbage but some trashy people left their mark behind today ....couldn't stand to leave it so cleaned it up when I left . The main parking lot at Glendale has been closed ...looks permanent as a result of the oil that was dumped there .... But I came ho

    Hello

    OK. I’ll play.... You already know what I do though... Salmon in the pool on spoons and spinners last 4 weeks. Will now move on to float fishing for salmon in the pool as the bite has changed predominantly to beads or roe. Once November arrives it’ll be steelie time where I will float fish, bottom bounce from shore, and by the sounds of it, bottom bounce from a boat on lucky days! 🙂

    We also need to get the other cormmorants under control as well. The human ones. I see them almost everyday taking fish regardless of size or species. You call the Ministry but there is no size limit on these fish and by the time the ministry gets around to checking. Well all the evidnce is gone. Time for size limits on Perch and Bass. Just my 2 cents. As for the feathered cormorants. Please after you shoot them be a good guy and dispose of them and not leave a mess.

  28. We went to lake nippising this summer. We almost exclusively used vibrax spinners (gold, silver, red) and absolutely cleaned up on the pike. Amazing lures, the pike just eat them up!

    Congrats! We got one bull on our archery hunt. 37 inches . We saw a few more but didn't get them in. With the changing of the tag system I am not optimistic about our chances for tags next year.

  35. For me to justify those prices it really depends how much are you going to use it and if it ticks all the boxes for what you need. To me its too much money for something I don't own.

  36. If it’s a conservation issue call MNR tip line. If it’s trespassing call the police. FYI the tip line works. I called it and the officer was there in 30 minutes and issued all fines and no warnings for using 3 and 4 rods and another for no license.

    Just got back from a morning hunt after working midnights, saw 2 does maybe 200 yards out, and saw a Turkey also, not a bad start I'd say.

Moved to another spot ...chummed with oat/cream corn/maize packbait with some scatterings of maize ....4o minutes later , the alarm screemed & away we go !! It went way over to my right into weeds ...couldn't budge it ...let off a little slack ....it came out & headed to the center ...felt like a whopper ....strong fish ! Wanted to weigh it but my scale flunked out ....some where in the double digits between 10 & 99 lbs . It wa

    I have seen a pair of them spend hours in a marina and watched them devour many perch . Some were passing over me yesterday , a few at a time , coming from the area where you were fishing Dan . Some good points there .... keeping big hen perch full of eggs doesn't help the numbers either .... I saw a guy last week with 6-7 gobies in a small bucket of water ....destined for his dinner table ? ....another beef I have with our MNR that hands out licenses to one and all , regardless of their lack of knowing the regs.

  49. This happened (on a smaller scale) to my step father.. a 45 gal barrel of wine in the basement (new house) blew out one of the stringer boards because a grape skin plugged the plastic air exhaust hose that went into a jar of water . He was at work when he got the call that wine was running across the basement into the drain .....He "flew" home from work ( 10 minutes) and was able to save about 30 gal. ....put into demi-johns . ....sweetest smelling basement in town !

    "As a hunter"....most likely not a hunter. Most likely not a hunter, nor a well informed one. On another note, dozens o cormorants where seagulls usually are on Martindale Pond, isn't good news for the fish population. Should be interesting when ice fishing comes around and how many perch (for example) will be around.
