    Just a reminder

    PICK UP YOUR FRIGGIN FISHINE LINE ??? Pretty please ? I spend about 30 minutes at Port Dalooozie today and I picked up a ton of line AGAIN on the west side wall behind the Legion . What is wrong with these anglers .....don't they understand anything or are they just plain stupid ? I talked to a fellow angler there about all the fishing spots that have been closed down because many spots have been plagued with trash of all sorts . As I drove the km. stretch of Decew Rd.from the waterworks commission to Pelham Rd. there are new signs every 100' on both sides which read ," No Parking" ...

  6. It's ok for 60 bass boats to go out fill there live tubs up the biggest/ nicest fish they can grab, drive them miles back to a stage, shove them in a bag, throw them in a tub and weigh them and hold up the nicest ones by the jaw so everyone can see how great they are. Maybe the fish get returned within a few miles of there orginal homes and we call these guys proffesionals, a dude gets a nice Bass takes a quick picture and releases it back to its orgininal structure and he's a moron......give your heads a shake and tell me who is doing more damage to our so called delicate fishery

    Shore Perchin

    I picked up cousin Bob for a few hrs. of perch fishing today ....armed with a bucket of fresh minnows and float rods . Boy... was it blowing out there !! We found a spot with our backs to the wind ....a wind break would have been nice ! I tried a new rig with a small silver spinner and red /white beads above the hook . The rig worked well as the chop on the water kept the spinner moving to attract the fish . We caught 2 doz. perch , kept 19 for the frying pan , and one tipped the scale at 12" ( measured it on my 15" screen ......) On my pute I can click on the photo to enlarg

    Central Sakatchewan

    As a gift for my birthday, The family paid to fly me out to the prairies for a 10 day fishing trip. What a fantastic time with my family. Then there was the fishing. Never hit the water for more than 4-5 hours each day, yet we were catching 50-120 fish per session. The tactics were simple. Baitholders with leeches, and our worm harnesses tipped with worm, leech or minnow. Minnow and ball jigs , with a sickle hook or casting jigs tipped with twisters or paddle tales. The fish were insane. Walleye out there were fighters, not dead weight. Pike were a lot thicker across the back as compa

    Moose Report

    Late report on this year’s moose hunt. Again this year we hunted the opening week. Boy was it warm! We had a group of 8 guys this year. We drew a Bull tag, and had a Cow tag through outfitter camp. Leading up to the hunt we hade been having quite a debate over whether to take a cow or not if the opportunity presented itself and decided as a group that we would take one only if it didn’t have a calf with it. Opening morning we set off to our respective hunting spots. Myself, and a buddy made the hour long trek in the dark out to a beaver pond which I like to hunt. It i

  13. If someone asks if a fishery is producing and you fished it and know about it, dont tell him or her to go fish it forthemselves and find out. This site is to help eachother and if a bit of info could save someone a tank of gas then it helps. Stop being so competitive over fishing holes and spots, and stingy with info on those spots especially if they arebwell known fishing holes. Time to start acting like adults. Im not saying give away your honey hole im saying if someone needs info just help them. Simple. And if you dont know the info just dont post. Simple. now fish on felas and lets make

  14. Had the cameras rolling last week while fishing solo out of Virginia Beach for big yellowbellies using artificials. There's something about sight fishing that is just so satisfying! ice was a consistent 7" everywhere I went and it seemed like there were lots of good fish around. I would expect there is lots of angling pressure there on weekends so I think the best option if you're thinking of going would be to really "SOCIAL DISTANCE" yourself from others to avoid the noise/pressure of other anglers. Tight lines! Lyle

  16. Decided to hit the river and catch a meal. I knew a spot that the sun would be behind the trees so off I went. If you wanna catch fish put a spinner on, so I did. Caught a nice smallie a few casts in then a stick, nope 15”ish walleye pulled it up on shore and it spit the hook and back it went. A few casts later feels like a log, lost it. Then another log (19.5” walleye). Some decent action then it died off. Its nice to have the grand almost in your backyard.

    It would be best if Jordan separates himself from BPS here... I only say this because he is a BPS employee, and is not their spokesperson. Large companies value their image, and market it in a certain way... I would hate to see him lose his job because of postings here... It is not his job to defend/offend or check on a item or hold one for you on this forum. Never mix business with pleasure. And yes BPS checks fishing forums... Just as they did on another popular one I know of.... I would strongly suggest posts involving Jordan and BPS be done via PM. We all know how things get out of han

  23. We got our annual trip to welcome lake in algonquin booked already for trout opener. I grabbed a cottage for a week in August aswell. grabbed a site in arrowhead for the family for a week in july aswell. The nice weather cant come soon enough. Side note: 2 years of research and going back and forth I think I finally pulled the trigger on my boat.

We added a bunkhouse after we bought it and every year have made improvements. New dock original cabin with bunkhouse added inside sleeping area This is the morning view out the cabin door

    Attacked by a Muskie

    A Niagara River muskie had enough of our underwater paparazzi act and takes a run at me. He didn't bite. People always asked me If I was concerned about a muskie attacking me. I would tell them I didn't care as long as I got it on film. I got the shot.

    Yes sir, another video of fish doing what they do in the river. This one is from my new GoPro 5, which has image stabilization, a really nice feature when you're trying to film in heavy currents.. If you have any questions, i will try to answer them .Enjoy !

  33. Was out Saturday morning. Caught 6 eyes and 1 bass. lost 2 other eyes at the boat. Great morning on the water.Thanks to all for the advice on running jet divers off the planer boards. They managed to catch two of those fish you see. My son showed me how to post some pics. I hope it worked out well.

    Bass Fishing

    Fish seasons are a rule not a guideline, much like speed limits, a little over and you can be fined. There are multiple species which will gun for the same baits, but there is due diligence you need to do as an angler. It all depends on the water body you are fishing. If you are fishing the two ponds at beaverdams ... you are fishing for bass, there is not enough pike in the two ponds to even try arguing you are gunning for pike. At the end of the day if the MNR was to stop by and they feel you are targeting an out of season fish ... you could lose all your gear plus a fine. It is

  35. Give it a @@@@ing break on this BS. I buy my stuff from where ever needed. There are members on here who will have a job from that store that might otherwise not exist. at least if you have a bad experience you can complain. I have had poor experiences at all tackle stores in niagara at one time or another. People have bad days. Bass pro is also not a specialty store. They are an all round store. Tackle stores are specialty stores. Waste of space for a post. Search this out on the forums and there are tons of threads.

    Went down this evening to fish the last hour of daylight, thought i'd go for some late season pike, and I know this meant my odds of hooking up with a trout if anything were good since half the time I go there for pike I get a trout, half the time I cast for trout I get a pike.....and tonight didn't disappoint Got a nice male about 6-7 pounds casting a silver/purple rapala bx simmer

    Cat fish?

    Just got back from Dunnville. My brother and I landed 23 cats today. The biggest was 17 on the scale but lots between 8-10. Water is still muddy but that’s okay for cats. Water temp is still only 50 so the cats will be around for awhile.

    March 26th Welland

    Got the boat outon the river a couple nights ago after work. The kids have been askimg for a boat ride and its warmed up just enough to be bearable! We were only on the water about an hour and only fished for a few minutes. My 9 year old thought she was snagged and handed the rod to me because it was too heavy. Then the line started moving. She hooked a nice pike on a Marabou jig tipped with a dead minnow.

  43. I realize this is non fishing, but... Most people here don't realize the quality of some of our members. We just moved from Grimsby to Thorold. Had enough stuff to fill a tractor trailer and then some. I'm not as capable as I once was, and it's hard to ask people to lose a day's pay to help me out. Some of the gang here were willing to help me out in a very big way Without our NFNer's I could not have managed 2 solid days of moving A very big THANK YOU goes out to smerchly, painter and fishnfeldie. You fellas are the greatest. We talk about it often enough, but this is what community

  46. lol .... I'm with yah Icehut! All year People post wonderful (and informative) reports on: - Bass - Pike - Sucker Runs - Carp Fishing - Drums - Walleye - Perch Although more "conservative" - Steelheads, Muskie and then all of a Sudden comes along the Salmon Season and things start to get weird. I've been fishing them for over 30+ years now (40+ of fishing) and it;s not exactly a "Secret" as to the LOCATIONS. OMG - like the choices are limited arent they? Up here in the GTA we basically have 3-4 "main piers" ... and then 2-3 smaller tribs. Obviously, each one is WELL KNOWN
