    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

    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

  12. 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. 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

  22. Got up to the camp for the fall bear hunt that opened August 15th. The five brothers have a camp 20 miles north of Kirkland Lake. A log cabin that was built in the fifties. 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.

  29. 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

  31. 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.

  36. I have had this buck on my trail camera for a month but all at night until last week when he showed up twice just before 7pm. I didn't hunt that stand until Saturday morning because the wind was wrong and I didn't want to mess it up. The trailcam showed he had come in that morning 5am and 7:29 the night before...after legal time. Saturday was cool and breezy and I had a feeling he might move early. Sure enough...6 turkeys walked by about 6pm and then I heard a noise and wondered if they were coming back but it was the big guy. He walked by at 20 yards and the Bowtech Reign 7 doesn't

  37. It finally all came together! Keep in mind I have only been trolling for walleye for past 2 years. Im a rookie! After always launching at crystal beach and the most walleye weve ever caught is 5 in an outting. We switched and went to out of sugarloaf in port after getting some good advice. Anyways we headed out at about 530 last night. Had our first fish in 20 mins. And a couple more in the next half hour. Had 4 rods out on dipseys all with harnesses. It slowed down a bit. Notices the copper harness was getting touched more so i threw on the bronze rippli

    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.

  42. I've been off this board for a while and recently came back and I've noticed a significant drop in posts... Anyhow, here it goes in one sentence (I'm being blunt to make a point): The biggest way to improve the site is for many of the core members to drop the a-hole holier than thou attitude. (I can provide examples if requested)

    Mnr Salmon Blitz !

    i recently called the MNR to report out of season salmon fishing at my local Go-to salmon picture taking location. I actually got threw to an actual person on the phone line; delivered my message of people fishing out of season, and on a few occurrences there, people intentionally snagging. She told me she would report this information to the reporting CO of that area. I blew that information off as i did not intend to hear back or that anything actually came of this. The very next morning i received a phone call from a CO. He was unaware that salmon were spawning in this particular loca

    His gift does not allow him to operate a motor vehicle of any kind, I think a conservation lis. Might be the way to go. I may be his only portal to fishing, and my time is limited, I think I would rather purchase a conservation lis. The money will go where the mnr needs it, and not only will Dave be fishing, but that little yellow slip might give him one more thing to be proud of. Thanks everyone for your input!
