  1. We bought a duplex a few yrs back that had both units rented out. I can tell ya from experience, it’s not easy to get tenants out even when the regulations are on your side!! I can’t imagine it’s very easy when you just want to “take advantage of the times”. Im sure there are some that will cash in on the house value increases, but I’m not sure I would consider that wrong?
  2. I learned it by watching YouTube vids, very helpful! Much easier than the manual....
  3. I keep main straight. I use the heading button which has a “N” push and hold till the N on the screen gets a circle around it, and after a cpl seconds disappears. It will keep you moving in the direction you’re pointed. You can change direction any time by just turning the minnkota . It works really well. The stronger the current the more power you’ll need to maintain your heading.
  4. Not quite what I got outta that. He seemed to be a man partially broken, possibly knowing that his actions or lack of caused more death and heartache than necessary.

    Airports must be open for commuters! However international flights should not be happening! Period!

    Fords own medical experts recommended outdoor activities open for mental health and low risk of infection reasons. How exactly is a guy fishing in his own boat in the middle of the lake risking infection of anyone! It’s absolutely asinine!! Or golfers playing alone for that matter! They only touch their own equipment!! zero risk. I’m all for restrictions that keep people safer. But some of the restrictions do nothing but make people miserable and depressed! For example zero people 19 and under dead from COVID in Ontario, but over 100 suicides in that age group due to lockdowns and rest
  7. Sry, I was not criticizing. Just saying I’m chicken! Lol
  8. I’ve opted out on the Astra Zeneca. Gonna wait till I can get 1 of the safer ones. Astra Zeneca is the 1 all the pharmacies are using I believe.
  9. Actually the other end is sitting against the other bank!
  10. If you could go fly fishing anywhere in Ontario for Specs, where would you go? Wifey got hooked on speckles a cpl yrs ago. Didn’t fish last spring because of COVID. This yr she says we goin no matter what! First season we fished all she caught was fingerlings, I’d love for her to catch something a little larger! When I was young, 35ish yrs ago I fished a lot of creeks and rivers from Mount Forest to Owen Sound and then south along the lake. Not sure if I should try that area again or hit another area? We will probably have about a week to hunt! Any tips and suggestions would be greatly
  11. Was up in that area 35 yrs ago, stopped at many a small lake along the road and caught either pike and/or walleye from shore In every lake! I’m sure it’s not the same now, but should still be a few fish.....
  12. I use the curado dc on a 10 1/2 avid. Works nice for float fishing. Need line without too much memory. Casts small floats with minimal shot pretty well, provided you have a little space behind ya....
  13. Same experience there 40ish yrs ago. Many good largies on the north side.
  14. Thank god we can get the boats wet now!! But I think we’d all be smart to be more careful now that they’re easing off on the restrictions. Last thing we want is to lose the opportunities we just got back! I for 1 will only fish alone for the foreseeable future. Less fun, but better than watching fishing shows on the sofa!!
  15. I believe they have said the virus lives on hard surfaces like metal and hard plastic for 3-4 days
  16. Definitely 1 of the funniest things I’ve seen a picture of on a fishing forum! Still laughing...
  17. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more insanity in the near future like the Nova Scotia shootings. People extremely stressed about not being able to work and pay their bills, and then forced to sit in the house and do nothing but think about it! Seems to me it’s a recipe for craziness!
  18. Lmao! Too funny...had to zoom in to realize it was not a boomerang!
  19. Fished that water for many yrs, it’s sad they were able to just take it away !
  20. Clearly an example of a ridiculous fine! I think the reason our government has made a large majority of the “social distancing “ rules, is to protect us from the stupid people who just don’t get it! Last weekend my neighbour had a birthday party with a yard full of people! And there were kids reaching through the fence to pet my dog! For those that don’t know, mammals can carry the virus. Some people’s lack of brain power amazes me!!
  21. Unreasonable? I REALLY want to be able to go fishing! However... people not following the social distancing rules risk becoming infected & transferring the virus to others! Consequently possibly killing many people down the line! How much are those lives worth?? Obviously some of the regulations are a bit ridiculous, they do need to rethink them a little! However for the most part, the fines are completely inadequate in my opinion!
  22. If photo #2 is ok, could you pls tell me where in niagara I can launch my boat?
  23. Got out on the water for a short pre fishing test run. Unit seems to be pretty good, but will def have to watch some videos to figure out the best settings. Being a ex-humminbird guy it will take a while to get used to the different way to navigate through the system, but it doesn’t appear to be difficult just different.
  24. His post makes me feel technologically inept!
