    NEW PB

    I fished the “fall big four 2020” tournament with the carp anglers group and won my region. Wasn’t hard I believe I was the only one competing in Canada. Canadians and Americans could compete. I didn’t come anywhere close to actually placing but I won a plaque for winning my region. the picture is my personal best carp so it’s kinda nice. Looking forward to the spring big four tournament.

  3. Guys I love to fish just like everyone else, but the only way to somewhat control this disease is to stay home. I understand that is difficult to do but our health care is close to collapsing. Yes I love to fish but I will do my part and stay home. You can find loop holes or keep saying to yourself that Ford makes no sense but let’s use common sense. Just my 2 cents from the peanut gallery.

    Niagara River Boat Ramps

    Locals only would be a good concept....lol....I remember years back fishing the lower throughout the entire winter...and more often than not...would not see another person at all on most days....maybe the odd passerby all winter stopping to say hi and warm up by the shore lunch fire......now it's almost guaranteed that if you surveyed the popular park and go spots like whirlpool or glen that the vast majority is all people from out of town...and unfortunately alot of locals including myself dont even bother to try going out at certain times because of the crap show and the trail they leave beh

  8. I don’t think their from Toronto. From Burlington to Niagara is booming with new housing. I think this will just be the usual for now on. St kitts wont be quiet like it use to be.

  9. Out for our daily exercise, Joe and I pounded some of the shorelines of Gibby. The two small ponds are frozen over, but the main lake was ice free. We went 1 for 3, with this nice 28 incher, which is currently being prepared for a meal.

    I wish I joined nfn 1-2 years earlier. I was looking at carp post from 2011-2012 and there was a bunch of carp anglers back then. It would’ve been awesome to meet Lorne seems like he ran the carp show. Everywhere I read about carp HAMMERCARP was there. Now we have fish-ins in memory of him.

  16. Went fishing last two days, was the only angler at the Niagara river at first light! all good, except for a few anglers that came from TO to fish, fish your local waters guys and we should be ok! Niagara Parks Police drove by a few times, I 🖕 and no response, lol. No need to rock the boat! Here are some shots:

  17. Could not turn down such a mild day. Gave it go, went 1 for 3. Nice fatty 30 inches, released. Might be the last one on open water with the temps dropping.

  18. Pike must of been hungry with a fresh looking chub in its gut and going after our offerings. Was caught at one of your spots you target carp on, Beaverdam Rd. One day I would like you to show me how to prepare a pike like you do....of course means you might not get the next one

  19. There's no travel bans at all. You can drive to James Bay without breaking any laws. The only laws we need concern ourselves with are the social gathering laws and any municipal bylaws for whee we are. It has been explicitely stated by the Ontario Gov't that fishing is allowed, provided you follow the social gathering requirements.

Cop: "Like, you're supposed to stay at home, cuz, like, there's a stay-at-home order, eh? So, like, I think I have to write you a ticket, unless you can come up with a viable explanation.....?" Me: {crickets} Me: "Would you like a donut?"

    Fish finders

    My old Lowrance X25 came with my 1990 boat I bought in 2003 , don't know when it was installed on the boat , but it still works good enough to show the depth which is all I need to help save the prop in shallow waters . It might be over 30 years old !! Made in the DSA (divided states of ameerica)

    Fish finders

    My fish finder is probably the same age as me. I don’t rely on it too much as it’s depth marking is a range and not accurate but is definitely good for warning kids to hold the rods up when we’re slow trolling over a shallow area so we don’t lose to many warm harnesses.

  26. Those three are mergansers, hard to tell from the photo but I believe those to be swans not snow geese. Cormorants are early migrators, and for the most part are gone. Although fishing the upper in the summer there were thousands. cheers

    Winterizing Boat/motor

    For many years I have done the winterizing myself on motors ranging from small to large 2 stroke outboards and various large 8 cylinder GMC and Ford blocks. Never had a problem and it was quite easy. My present rig is fairly new with both main motor and kicker being 4 strokes. So far, I have had the dealer where I bought it (Bay City, Hamilton) do the winterizing. They charge me $246 for the big motor and $103 for the kicker (plus taxes) This includes changing the oil and filters, the gear oil, fuel treatment, seal kits and complete lubrication of all components. The service is excellent, sinc

  33. Winter solstice arriving today was a day celebration for Joe and I. Happy that daylight hours will now be getting longer, we decided to bring the day in with some meal size pike. Not to be disappointed, we both got one and lost one.

    That and other fiscally irresponsible dealings. I am starting to do more cash jobs now - and i do not feel guilts about it one bit. Since I cannot trust the government to spend my money responsible I might as well just keep it myself!!

    cell phone help

    7/11 no longer carries the Alcatel flip phone, but you can order one below and use 7/11 speakout for the minutes. As Smerch (can't seem to catch a pike ) said, the minutes you buy are good for a year. Many other plans require you to top up every month. https://ca.alcatelmobile.com/alcatel-go-flip/

    So do you need a license this year? If you turn 65 in 2021 I’d say they should give you a pass on the first 6months.
