    Hello

    Are the largies still aggressive on frogs this time of year? Love froggin early season but the ponds i fish got too grown in this summer. Wanted to give it a go now that the pads have died but too busy steelheading since september. Few from last couple days before the rains..

  2. 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. 🤢

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

    Hello

    As I lifted her out of the net she shook and sent me a face full of eggs which were spewing out of her if I tipped her tail downwards. Can’t say I’ve ever had that happen before!!

    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! 🙂

    The farmers used to dump smelts under their fruit trees back in the 50's . I would rather see them incinerated .......or sent to China (more meat than bats) ...... 🤐

    Fished a couple rivers yesterday. Saugeen was pretty much blown. A couple fish were caught but we left anyways. Went to Medford, water was clear but not much going on so headed to Thornbury. Water was nice lots of guys fishing. River seemed slow till we hit the fast water and Hooked around 15fish between two of us. Lost them all. The bows went ape $h!t when hooked. Trying to land them in the fast water by yourself with no net was impossible. Could’ve walked them down river but then there’s like 10 guys below you. The fight is the best part anyways. Light rain all day mostly but end up being d

    Sushi

    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 !

    Sushi

    I still go with wild as there is too many hormones in farm raised fish, but will freeze it for a few days to kill any parasites, normally I would make different kinds of veggies rolls typically I use avocado, mango or cucumber. I also make a mean miso soup, there is a grocer downtown in St.Kitts, which is the only place I can find Japanese ingredients.

    Sushi Jade in Hamilton and Amakara in St.Catharines. Its the only food I go out for (eat in or order out). Everything else I can make at home. I want to keep that "special" even though it would be great to learn.

    The 12

    When I saw the tim bits boxes I thought someone(s) have been into the weed , seen lots of that going on at fishing holes . I usually have a green garbage bag in my back pack but only had a Wally bag which I used to wrap my maize bag . I had to flatten down the pop/beer cans etc to get it all in the Wally bag . At least 3 swivels with the steel leader Scott . Maybe there's too much drag from the fast current without the swivels . I was surprised my line held up dislodging that contraption from the depths of the strong current . There was a lot of light brown foam runn

    Here’s a spawning salmon from just now... She was released but did donate some eggs, one of which literally landed in my mouth. Caviar for breakfast.

    Costco St.Kitts

    Loving the new one in Grimsby, been doing the drive to St Kitts for over 15 years, cheap gas and a 20 pound propane is 12 bucks compared to over 20 at those tank exchange ripoffs, we also like the quality of many of the Kirkland products over name brands at the grocery stores

    Costco St.Kitts

    As someone who usually takes the drive to Grimsby for it, the newer stores are definitely worth it since they are a little larger, aisles are bigger and such. While the St Kitts one is an easy drive for me, I hate navigating the Fairview Mall area since I am always letting someone know how good they drive between runnings stop signs and red lights. The gas bar does not hurt either, I generally won't go out of my way to find cheaper gas, however that is an added benefit now.

    Seems all they want is the license fee .... The first page of the regulations book should "try" to educate the morons who leave their trash all over the place !! Fines should start at $500 !

    cormorants

    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.

    cormorants

    As I approached the 6 diverters on Martindale pond yesterday, they were full of cormorants. They started diving into the water as I got closer. Easily over ---500--- birds. Explains why fishing has been tougher on this body of water.

    cormorants

    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.

    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

    I can probably count on one hand how many times I've fished this year, it's been a ridiculously terrible year for getting out.
