    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

    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

  4. 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

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

    Been skunked at this spot for the last year n 8 days. I’ve done quite a few 4-6 hour sessions here. Finally this evening I cast some packbait out and a couple minutes later the alarm bells are ringing. So pumped right now. Not only did I finally catch one here it’s my new pb. 21lb 6oz

  11. Well back I was for more action at Jordan harbour, brought my pike and trout rod looking for some, well, pike or trout. I wasn't surprised when I ended up with a perch and a bass since I always catch fish i'm not geared for. What I wasn't expecting was to get my personal best perch while casting for trout with a #5 blue fox vibrax.

    Gibby today Nov.4

    Fishing for pike , using a 10'6" rod, a float , #4 Aberdeen hooks , and 3-4" minnows . Tried one spot ....very breezy ,no hits. another spot was out of the wind and a few small perch tried their best to swallow the minnows , too small for keeping . THEN ...finally the float slowly went under ...set the hook , and it started to peel out the line ...lots of line . I was thinking it may spool me as my Shimano 2000 doesn't carry a lot of line . It turned around and headed back my way ....big pike ??? musky ??? Looking forward to catching a nice toothy one ....... Well it was over 10 lbs .....

    Jordan Harbour

    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

    Yesterday opener

    Had the pleasure of getting out for the day yesterday to try a hand at some brookies for something a bit different on trout opener in the area we headed out to....we have all the big steelies you can catch all winter long here in Niagara so its always fun to have the opportunity to try something that is not available around our area.....before heading out I first made sure that the area we set out to explore was infact open to fishing...there are alot of restrictions all over the place which did put a bit of a limit on where to try, and makes the season alot different for many this year with s

  15. Sounds like an exciting outing. Don't worry. all us guys tend to overestimate the size of fish, among other things and underestimate the cost of gear and the number of beer we had when together with friends, so it all balances out in the end.

  16. Nice afternoon so I thought I’d give the river a go for a couple hours. Success! Nice fight too...one high jump which thankfully didn’t loosen the hook, and 3 or 4 good drag peeling runs. It had been a while since I fished and even longer since I caught, so I’m very happy!

  17. Im very happy that I stumbled upon NFN. I feel exactly like Tyler the other day when he said that he wished he had found this site years ago. This is one of the only sites where I've seen people actually helping one another. The other sites I tried before NFN were awful. Guys taking pictures with the backgrounds blacked out, very secretive about depths and baits, just all around no help. This site is what it's supposed to be all about. Helping one another, and meeting new friends.

    NEW PB

    I fished the “fall big four 2020” tournament with the carp anglers group and won my region. Wasn’t hard I believe I was the only one competing in Canada. Canadians and Americans could compete. I didn’t come anywhere close to actually placing but I won a plaque for winning my region. the picture is my personal best carp so it’s kinda nice. Looking forward to the spring big four tournament.

  19. A scrappy 20lb female from the WP today. I fought a gigantic male for 15min and brought him to my feet but he was too big for the net and spit the lure while I tried to net him. The largest fish of my life. Another fish story ....

    Boating law

    It’s not being enforced. It’s only a recommendation not a law. If we can protest 1000’s of people inches away from each other I’m sure boating with 2-3 is fine. If not bring a sign and say your protesting.

    Keeping busy today

    Jwl’s photos reminded me of something my wife showed me the other day on one of her websites...... it is now highly recommended that you wear a mask inside your own home. It’s not so much to aid with covid19, but to stop you eating!!

  22. All the worries about crowds...who "wants" to go fishing in a crowd anyhow..haha...I get that some areas are more popular than others..more populated ect... and therefore areas might be weary of a bunch of people all at once using a launch or swarming to an access point....heck I've been in fishing tourneys where 20 boats have gone in the water in a matter of a half hour ... start your boat...stage out in the water so the next guy can go kind of thing...seasoned boaters can all do this no probs.....if you can wait in line right now to get in the beer store...I'm sure you can have the patience

    Fished Today

    Took a rod and tried fishing for an hour at the Rec Canal, while staying away from anyone else. Didn’t catch anything, and I didn’t care...it just felt so good to be out in the sunshine with a rod in my hand!!

    Got out for the first time in 2 months today after work...ended up with 14 crappies then a big ole pike rolled in and the bite stopped ...ive tried this spot 3 years in a row with no luck and it finally it paid off ...maybe I was too early or late previous years.

  28. We did Kap-Kig-Iwan for three nights, Fushimi Lake for nine nights then Marten River for three I believe. Took the canoe but I have since acquired a 12 foot tinnie and a 7.5 Merc. We'd go back to Fushimi in a heartbeat, small park but well kept and clean. We caught fish every time we went out.

  30. A first for me. Used a few different lures and had one hit. Decided to use my #5 Vibrax which doesn't get much use. First cast fish on, a sheephead of all things. Well at least I know I won't have the white stripe today. Second cast same area, pike on, nice size as well. A few more casts and nothing. Moved around using different lures, after a half hour, back to the earlier spot, and yep, put the Vibrax back on. Few casts later another pike. Nice I thought. Few more casts yet another pike. Feeling pretty good, that's for sure. Decided to change

  33. I've tried float fishing, trolling, charters, drifting, bottom bouncing, you name it. Kayak fishing, Big boat fishing, little boat fishing, shore fishing. I eat, sleep, and breathe fishing. Then I talk to another fisherperson and realize I know absolutely nothing, lol. 5% knowledge, haven't even tried salt water before!

  34. This one came in around 27" give or take one. Very close to the spot where my last pike came from, and on the same Snags created spinnerbait ... I think I have found a winning pattern for one of the bodies of water I fish.

  35. Back at it this morning with bobber and minnows and managed a beauty pike at 37 3/4 " and 7.8 lbs...took me for a few zings on the 6 ft with 6 lb test...and some a$$hoe stripped a bunch of wire and left the coverings there🤬

  36. Today was a good day ... maybe a little too much sun. Started just washing the lures, but then changed locations and had one that went for it but didn't get hooked. An hour or two later and this bulldog hit. It managed to make the net man bleed. I should add ... on one of my creations as well.
