  2. 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

  7. 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 don,t really know if I need to get one or not, I figured it would be my last one so maybe call it a donation to the fish gods and I will have a banner year fishing in 2021

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  21. 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

  28. 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.

    Update on guns

    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!!

  30. Your absolutely correct. Both hut operators I called said they are almost booked for weekends through the season. The weekdays are still open. I know one of the operators personally and he said it might be his best season in a long time if they don’t get shutdown. I use my own hut, move when I want, cook some fresh fish, keep to myself and enjoy the time on the hard water. Plus I can pick and choose from so many areas and species within 2 minutes to 30 minutes.

  31. So I called 2 hut operators to find out what the policy is for them. 1st operator said you must wear a mask while travelling to and from the hut and must wear gloves. They will take more than one group at a time following the mask and glove rule. In the hut you do what you want with who you want. 2nd operator said you must wear a mask and gloves to and from your hut and he will only take one group at a time to the huts. Both are from Lake Simcoe.

    License Time

    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.

    You know Ford and Trudeau will both be having Christmas dinners with their families. Both have already been caught red handed breaking Covid rules, and it wont be the last time for either.

    Ice fishing covid....

    Good question .....Who is going to check people and their I.D. while fishing in a hut ? Will the MNR be sledding all over L.Simcoe , wearing helmet & mask, asking to see your license & I.D. ....and your C-19 vaccine certificate ? My hut is 7' x 7' so I should be safe to have one other person in there , one in each corner ....wearing masks of course ! They would make a lot more money by checking every car on the 401 !
