    Are you sure those are bass? To me they kinda look like trout or salmon.  hard to tell from a picture but I’d still report it.

    I wanted to share a link to my new fishing podcast: The Love of Fishing Podcast.
    The show is about sharing great stories from passionate people in the fishing industry.
     
    This week I sit down with content creator Dan Favato (Flyinspired) for the kickoff edition of the podcast.
     
    Dan shares tales from fishing around the world, including an excursion deep into the Guyana jungle.Great stories. Weekly giveaways. Sub and comment for weekly giveaways!
     
    Producing the show was a result of seeing so many people pick up fishing last year and the angling community being a source of consistent positivity last year, so I wanted to keep it rolling!
     
    Enjoy!

    Smerch those were good times on the west wall. Hope to see you around...maybe at a local carp spot where I need your net again 😉
     
    Good luck Tyler, lots of dinks around but a fun fishery there at VB if you get there early and find parking!

    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!

    The Ketchican Kid got a reaction from NiagaraRiverFisher in Spring Steel / Making my return to NFN   
    Hello NFN'ers
     
    It's been a long time since I have been active on the forum and I wanted to re-introduce myself. I want to start by saying that the forum and its great have always been helpful whenever I had questions getting started. I've connected with a lot of excellent people through the page and I'm looking forward to doing that again.
     
    Here's a picture of a nice spring steelhead caught by a friend from last year drifting the Niagara River as I dream of what's to come in the next few months. Hopefully a return to the Queenston boat ramp for one, and word from the province that Guiding is a GO as well. March is a great time to cash in on the Spring run, and there can be some tanks!
     
    I am now a guide in the area: fully insured, with all the First-aid and transport Canada requirements and have been helping people make memories on Lake Ontario, the Niagara River and Erie for the past 4 years.
    If anyone ever has questions about the local fisheries, I will do my best to share my experiences!
     
    A lot has changed since I was last active here but from a bit of browsing I've done, it seems like there is still a great community here!
     
    Do you prefer spring steelhead (March/April), mid-winter (Jan-Feb) fishing or the fall run (Oct-Dec)?

    I've heard reports of people skating and enjoying fishing locally this weekend, but as you guys have pointed out -the ice was NOT ready wednesday. With upcoming warming temps, I would pack extra caution if venturing out...espeically without a lot of experience on the local waters

    I think that happened to me as well as I was fishing the pond side of Jordan near the hwy bridge . I was sitting on my pail & I believe someone passing by on the QEW thought I was half way through the ice !!      . Then I saw the police vehicles parked near the bridge checking me out . I made sure I got up and walked a few feet !   
      Some people call in as they aren't sure if one is in trouble on the ice .....
