  1. What baitrunner did you get Smerch? I am in the market for a new one as the little plastic gears in mine got pooched because of the poor quality they are made now. Line capacity?
  2. It appears the one guy has blueprints or a floor layout on his phone ... so I would wager someone might have left the right door unlocked for them to get going.
  3. And probably some decent jail time as this isn't a simple trespassing in a random building, combined with the fact they broke Transport Canada regulations around drone use around Niagara Falls
  4. Drone and video footage from Casino and Hilton Rooftops Well I shall start by saying watch it while you can, doo-doo is going to hit the fan over the video, mostly because of the casino footage. Also not my video.
  5. And they would become puppets too if they ever secured enough seats to be a viable option.
  6. While I agree with the sentiments, the East Coast, Quebec, and the GTA will ensure he gets back in because of how they swoon over selfie-boy and when it comes to the GTA, hate Doug Ford. Canada is a cesspool when it comes to politics and how divided they are making people. Pretty-boy will woo people with his bland statements that will cause a large percentage of the population to go HE GETS ME, HE UNDERSTANDS MY NEEDS. For the most part we have two major parties, one minor party, two above fringe parties, and a zillion fringe parties. It is a darn shame we allow politicians to dance around questions at election time with their answers that have no substance. Hell year round this is a problem. And just wait ... as we get closer to the day to vote, watch how much patting on the back JT will do for how he handled navigated Canada through the pandemic. That will play a bigger role in the election and it will continue to divide life long friendships with how extreme views from both sides are being normalized. For the sake of Canada I hope JT does not get elected, and if he does ... I might have to hang some flags upside down, with a minority there is still a voice but if he gets a majority, our flag will start to look a little more like China's with a lot less white on it.
  7. Just curious if anyone wants to share some spots, I am not looking for any secret spots, but something beyond the Sugarloaf area where it is too weedy. Also can you kayak in the quarries and what species are in there? The ones off of Quarry Road. Thanks in advance,
  8. That is the business model technology is going towards unfortunately Smerch. Smart phones no longer come with the wall plug blocks, other items have no cables ... I do have a box of cables I will never use, but will never toss em as a JUST IN CASE moment.
  9. Well it was a long time coming and way too many hours spent but landed two pike today ... the second one came in at 32". Both hit the same Snags created lure ... fished a total of about 10 minutes so I will take the two fish. No pics to be shared, not about to give the spot away since many of you drive by it daily and rarely is anyone fishing it.
  10. And Canadian Tire stores are almost always community owned and not a corporately owned store
  11. Why should a business care about their reputation when people will tweet them how wronged they were day in and day out. We are in an age where people want the instant gratification of being comforted by strangers on social media when they post their sob stories about how they were wronged, regardless of the true story, the business gets abused, if it gets elevated to a corporate level they need to respond to the office as well. I saw enough of that prior to the explosion of social media, now it is 100 times worse. Large companies have people employed to review social media and hashtags to ensure they are not trending, or if they do trend, they can reply to the concern ASAP. Majority of your businesses are not as successful as people would think, especially when it is a franchised operation. Sure you have a name to rely on but there are a ton of expenses you shell out and you can wind up in the hole annually if you are not cautious with how razor thin your profit margins can be. Chances are the owners are working a regular shift and paying themselves by the hour along with a dividend at years end after their accountant has reviewed everything and calculated what the business can pay them. The government never cared outside of election time. We also don't need more bureaucratic policies to make things more challenging for all. If the government was to care about us, they would start with the CRTC and what the telecom industry has been allowed to do (pricing, packages, monopolies, etc) and not because you want a rain check to save $30 on a screw driver set.
  12. Bass Pro has similar nets, they look decent, but after playing with it for a while in the store I am not convinced those are able to handle anything more than small fish, might be able to get away with a slightly larger than average bass, but forget anything bigger.
  13. I have looked into some of the collapsible nets and none of them impress me, you will want something you can extend, but the nets where the frames fold down will no a decent fish no justice and probably be more of a hassle. Very few spots in Port D where you can climb in. So just make sure you have boots that can deal with some rain/slush/mud.
  14. Did the MNR ever announce where they thought the Gibson carp came from? Or they did their thing, found 10 or so ... and that is it?
  15. I am a believer that there is an issue with that watershed and the fishing. The 12 is fed from Lake Gibson which is fed from the canal (Lake Erie) and this eventually winds up in Martindale Pond. @knightfisher might agree with myself, but the past few years the quantity of fish has drastically dropped in the Gibson through Martindale stretch. I used to have double digit days on bass and pike and I am down to very few days where I even see a fish or have a hit. If you look closely as well, the waters are much muddier and there is a lack of zebra mussels as well. The last time I saw more than a few feet of visibility was when there was still some ice around the shoreline. I am a believer something was put into the waters and it has altered them significantly. Farm runoff? Maybe. Something to kill the zebra mussels? Maybe. Something to kill the Asian carp? Maybe. Or the Asian carp have completely taken over and destroyed the spawning habitat for bass and pike.
  16. I think the future will have GPS tied to your vehicle that will feed your insurance company your information, it will be sold as IT WILL LOWER RATES FOR GOOD DRIVERS, but expect it to screw everyone over in the long run based on "statistics" or "one time is too many". My work vehicle has one, the company installed them to monitor everyone and encourage good driving. With how sensitive they are set ... it goes off in a parking lot for rough driving if the pothole is not solid ice and the vehicle dips enough.
  17. The issue around speeding is the engine and look of the vehicle add to the perceived speed, I have had my neighbours in the past upset at my speed. None of them could identify my speed, other than FAST. I asked them what the speed limit was and most have no clue that the speed limit is 50 KM/H, all they could say was YOU DRIVE TOO FAST, no clue on my speed, no clue on the speed limit, nothing but opinion. Too many people are irresponsible parents/pet owners though based on things I have seen. Some kids used to live in my little subdivision and they could not comprend looking both ways before running out into the street, mom would sit on the porch and not say anything. It took me back to driving through Baltimore where a common issue (I was given a heads up on) is people jumping out into traffic to get hit and then launch a lawsuit. No different than the pet owners who have those extendable leashes, saw one that had to be about 30 feet or so ... the guy was on the sidewalk, his dog was walking down the middle of the road. I still stand behind Niagara being the worst for driving in North America based on things I have seen and how many times I have nearly been hit or people who don't understand the 406 has areas where it drops to 80 from 100 and have almost rear-ended me. There was a lady this morning who was weaving between lanes to try and get ahead of traffic and failing to use a blinker, let alone actually remain in a lane as she was riding the line more than anything. Pulled up beside her at a red light and asked her how much she had to drink and to use her signal. She wound up behind me further down the road and with how close she got to my bumper while I was waiting for my left, she couldn't get out from behind me ... so I waited past a few openings to make my turn and inconvenience her some more. Needless to say I saw a hand gesture in my rear view mirror.

    The difference is that you don't meet the definition of a close contact (15 minutes worth of interactions with the sick person) to any other shoppers or walkers in Niagara Falls (unless you stop and hug someone). If people are in a boat, they all meet the definition of a close contact if one person is sick.
  19. My conclusion ... there are no pike left in Niagara. Not sure where they moved to, but all my usual spots this past week and I have one follow to talk about.
  20. Only if someone wants to make a big deal out of it. Those rocks are around many lake structures to protect from erosion, you want to block off access there you will need to shut down most of the lake front trails as well.
  21. HAH! If a whole neighbourhood is onboard with getting some parking changed we will see change. It might not be quick, but we will see change. It should be no one's responsibility to look after picking up after others ... but by today's standards everyone is exempt for their actions and excuses are completely allowed because you can't tell people no or that they are wrong.
  22. NOPES. FishNCanada Article
  23. There are specifics around bait, so it isn't like you could put a worm on one, minnow on another, and corn on the third.
  24. Was out this morning trying for some fish and there was a lady walking grumbling into her phone about how much trash fisher people leave behind and that something needs to be done about it, she was obviously ranting and raving into someone's voicemail and how disgusted she is about cleaning up after us slobs. It sounds like her whole neighbourhood supports closing off street parking and she has a petition for it. So to those of you who are F***ING PIGS, THANK YOU FOR RUINING ANOTHER SPOT! To those of you who tie garbage bags to trees, for people to use, you are just as bad because no one ever removes those bags, and to those of you who leave your beer cans and coffee cups ... THANK YOU TO YOU TOO! Looking at the junk she was moving to a garbage can, it wasn't a snip of line, it was a whole spool of line, and various fast food related garbage. Where is this spot? You all can figure it out if the few parking spaces available get turned into NO PARKING. Thank you for being such pigs, we deserve to see spots lost. BUT IT ISN'T JUST FISHERMEN ... in this area ... it is, you aren't gonna park there and smoke a joint ... it is us.
  25. Just a matter of time before someone does it themselves. I don't know how well cats would do, well bullheads would be fine ... but the carp would love it.
