  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  7. Cop: "So, like, how's it goin', eh?" Me: "Oh beauty." Cop: "So, like, you live in Hamilton. Whatcha doin' way up here?" Me: "I am exercising and going ice fishing." 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?"

    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)

    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.

  10. The rules are crystal clear! Stay home. Or maybe go out. Or get some exercise? Don't leave your region? Up to police chiefs?!?! You can't be pulled over? You can be pulled over for other things and asked about your essential travel?!?!?! "No worries though, you can fight the ticket!" Anybody here ever fought a ticket before? Would love to avoid that situation again! I'm giving it a few weeks for people smarter than me and richer than me to test out the waters. When they go to the media about how they were treated "unfairly" I'll make my ju

  13. OK. Fishing is allowed, in fact it is explicitly listed as an allowed activity on the ontario.ca website. There are no travle restrictions. Nobody in gov't is going to risk violating our chart right to mobility. As individuals the only things we need to worry about is exceeding a social distancing limit, which at this time is 5. We also have to worry about being at a location/facility that is closed. Lastly we need to worry about municipal bylaws for anywhere we roam. All of the other restrictions are for business's not for individuals.

  14. I got a newspaper in my mail box yesterday , called The Epoch Times . I looked it over quickly to see it has been around for about 20 years . I was pleasantly surprised to see it was not the same old left wing propaganda crap the big papers and global news media spews out . We just need to "read between the lines" of the establishment news and know who is backing them . (Facebook rings a bell) Censorship in the news is alive and well .....for now ! Mopmb....nice to have some sane opposition to balance our thoughts . ....

  17. This is a hot topic on a few different websites. Technically No, fishing is not an essential reason to leave your home unless it is somehow deemed "exercise", which is permitted. The real question is will Police or Bylaw actually enforce it. If the boat ramps get closed again that seems more of a regional decision. I will be out fishing until someone comes and tells me I cant . Once again, the government has made things even more confusing and vague than ever.

    A buddies father had one of those. I bought his boat in the mid eighties when I was in high school, I didn't want to buy the graph as it looked to complicated and wasn't cheap at the time. I remember him showing the scrolls with fish marks etc. which was incredibly cool at the time. I bought a small LCD unit instead that probably had 50 pixels in the whole screen, looked like an electronic quarterback game (loved that game), but showed the depth and a rough representation of bottom structure which to me was great at the time.

    Who remembers the old lowrance paper graphs? I will tell you those marked beautifully and once the paper roll was done you could unravel it and show your buddies what you marked.

    Stopped by Lasalle this morning on my way to work looking for some signs of carp. Cast the deeper around for a half hour no signs of anything. Beautiful day out today.
