  1. Not at all, just been super busy starting up my own company and family and life and what not. Still hoping to hit the banks this spring
  2. 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.
  3. I pulled 2 bags out of the freezer earlier this week because I was planning on getting out on Wednesday. Left them on top of the freezer just found them last night when I went back down stairs. They seem kinda moldy. Lol think they would still work? Or am I better to just toss it and use other bags.
  4. To be honest I always found corn flavoured pop ups / boilies mixed with whatever scent I use in my maize works the best for me. In a pinch I’ll use frozen corn but if I know a few days out that I’m going, it’s either a corn meal pack bait and a boilie / pop up for the hook bait, or the boilie / pop up as hook bait and maize as chum. Haven’t fished solo corn mixture probably since i first started carping. Thanks for the info though. Very insightful !
  5. I actually picked up 2 rod holders for surf fishing in Florida which has a huge spike in it. Never thought to use it for carp fishing.
  6. Yea I am concerned about breach of privacy with that app. I’m sure the intentions are good and it may help people but I’ll pass on the app and go about my business like I have since the pandemic hit. Limit my time in stores wear a mask social distance etc.
  7. St. John’s is great for young kids. Tons of pan fish (almost every cast) and the water is maybe 5ft deep in the middle ? Fireman’s park is another good one. Beaverdams along marlatts rd is a popular spot for people with relatively safe conditions. Hope this helps.
  8. How old is your daughter ? No one is about to give up hot spots in a public forum. As to actual spots for kids to fish I would recommend fireman’s park or St. John’s. Easily accessible and bass / pan fish can be caught quite easily. As for largemouth bass specifically I would look into spots on Martindale pond is your best bet but that’s about all I got for you. Your going to have to try your luck on the bank and find your spots. Hope this helps.
  9. Finally picked out a new truck for myself. Been 7 years since I sold my last truck and bought a mini van -.- finally got my truck back! If you see it parked don’t be afraid to come and chit chat on the bank!
  10. Was going to recommend Hartzel auto marine in Thorold. I personally haven’t ever dealt with them but I have friends that have with a great deal of success that and the turn around of boats going through there( I pass it everyday) seems like they move through it pretty quick. Might be worth a phone call
  11. One of these days I’ll catch the elusive Smerch fishing and get to put a face to a name. Until then goodluck smerch!
  12. See and my wife calls me crazy for packing my machete for when I go carping at sundown and into the night. I bring it for the potential coyote encounter as I’ve ran into them in the past getting a little brazen. But just the other night leaving rennie park about 10pm with my oldest boy we encountered a group of about 6 boys hanging out at the park drinking and smoking and yelling at us as we walked past being obnoxious and I had the machete in hand. Times are changing and it’s scary.
  13. Where about do you dive out of sheer curiosity. And does the boat traffic hinder your dive? Anytime I’ve seen boats on the Niagara seems like a zoo. Great video non the less thanks for sharing.
  14. I always bring my carp bait in grocery bags, usually empty them chumming and clean up my site I’m setup at. Sometimes its really frustrating to see that if I fish the same spots few nights apart the garbage appears in abundance that I just can’t seem to keep up.
  15. Hey guys looking to get out a few days this summer to fly fish Niagara. Don’t really care what to target but any tips on what I should be casting or a general area I could try? Or if someone would like to meet up and fish together. I’m still a novice fly fisher just a precaution but love to fish and love to learn if anyone is interested.
