  1. Definitely the FG knot. Check out YouTube for easy to tie FG knot applications. There are several. All work well.
  2. Freedom and rights come with responsibilities and right now IMO the factor in all of this is a pandemic which has only gotten worse because too many people tend to think of only themselves. If we followed proper protocols - mask wearing, social distancing , non essential cross regional travelling, limited gathering - a good many activities could still continue, but it appears we are not willing to do that. Try to see the bigger picture in all of this. This stage of the pandemic is far worse than the first when we seemed more willing to follow severe protocols, so why do we whine and wane durin
  3. To put a burning question(s) to rest.......who actually owns the rock barrier wall constructed to enclose the Beacon marina? Stories/rumours if you wish, told of a government project to aid in developing more recreation facilities similar to what was rumoured about the extension of the outlet to the lake from Forman’s marina. To add to the controversial issue, what is the legality to prohibiting fishing to boats entering from the lake into the Beacon marina? This venue, and Jordan Harbour for a time, were prime spots for a few bass tournaments held around the lake!
  4. Between your 2 choices I would choose the Navionics +. Though similar problems to what Fish Farmer attested to, frequent updates to the original card have made my decision to keep the Navionics+ operative.
  5. Similar happenings on the Forty. Son suggested a possible salt/acidity problem. Talked with a mar researcher who commented on saline numbers are up on many Northern L. Ontario streams.
  6. Thanks for all the great info. Truly appreciated. Hope to tackle some channel cats this week!
  7. Would like to get some cat fishing in. Any reports on same re. Jordan Harbour and/or Dunnville would be appreciated.
  8. Berkley trilene fluorocarbon is just plain terrible. On the other hand, the BP fluorocarbon line, IMO, is extremely good.
  9. Here are some other techniques u might want to try - jerk baits, spinnerbaits, swim baits, spy baits, and jigging spoons. It is critical to also have a good electric motor to keep you on fish when you find them and to control your drifting. Look for counter drifts and fish the the edges of the drifts. Finally, at this time of the year smallies have a tendency to move to the mouth of the river. Trolling crank baits both east and west of the mouth in the 15 to 20 foot depths especially over the humps on the American side can produce some hefty catches. Be warned, however, that muskies roam thi
  10. Equal amounts of boiled water, corn meal and flour work well also. Adding flavour like vanilla only enhances the bait!
  11. Any word on possible police activity which occurred Sunday evening around 7pm at the launch area. While leaving the lower parking area, 2 Niagara Parks crusiers followed by a Niagara Regional Police car sped down the access lane! Did not stay to see what the fuss was about. Simply interested in what may have transpired.
  12. Thanks for the info! Would like to get out on the river. Probably our favorite area to fish. Heard some good reports on the fishing lately!
  13. Anybody able to launch at Queenston without too much trouble. Have an 18.5 ft Lund.
  14. 24v 80lb thrust terrova with i pilot. You will love it!
  15. Got pop up indicated a personal message was sent to me. How  do I access said message?
