  1. Don't let the door hit you on the way out....
  2. Are you kidding??? The MNR and cops are afraid to go down there. LOL
  3. Port Hope has been getting better. The shietshow upstream will end on the 30th. Water temps are dropping, fishing is improving. Skien bite is starting to heat up. The town cops have been out showing themselves in full force this year to put an end to the barrage of non ethical people ( I can't call them fishermen as they aren't anglers). Over 65 charges have been laid in the past 3 weeks. 40 of them fishing related. They are making a difference! Best charges to date: 1 man charged for no fishing license @ 7AM. Same man charged for no fishing license @ 11:30AM, fishing rod confiscated. Same man again charged for no fishing license, 3 remaining rods and all fishing tackle forfeited to the crown and another ticket for no fishing license. 3 Quebec Residents charged for camping on town property. Same 3 charged several hours later for drinking other than residence. Same 3 charged for disturbance later that night. One man was so drunk and belligerent, the police took him into custody. The other guy didn't think it was right so he argued with the cop and he too was taken into custody. The lady packed up all the crap they had and drove up to the police station to get her friends out of jail the next morning. She got charged for impaired driving!
  4. Great video Jim. Definitely no shortage of zebra mussels and Gobies!
  5. Sounds like you are having a blast! Just where abouts is this Deer lake?
  6. The little bass turds. Can't they hack the government files and clear my income tax instead? Geesh......
  7. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and you will get rid of him for the entire weekend!
  8. Very generous offer Cliff. I hope whoever you pick, represents you well. As you stated, being a "pro staffer" is not what many people think. "Pro" does not stand for Professional, it stands for PROMOTIONAL. There are several people on this forum who would fit this bill nicely. A great working relationship will form provided both parties are willing to take criticism and grow with it. As you stated, honesty is the highest platform you need to attain. It's a nice feeling for a company to step up to the next level! Good luck with your next stage of business! Cheers...
  9. That is a great looking fly Dave. Are you actually casting these or are you flat lining behind the kayak? Cheers, Ron...
  10. Many moons ago, (20 some odd years), I took my 2 daughters to a father/daughter fishing tournament. The only entries were my 2 daughters and myself. I got 2 trophies made up, 1 for the biggest fish and 1 for the most fish. At the end of the days fishing, I took 2 milk crates out of the back of the truck, got them to stand on the crates as I presented each of them their very own trophy. The look on their faces was priceless! Both of them were so proud of their trophy. In fact, my youngest daughter, 7 at the time, took the trophy to school to show off to everyone on how well she did fishing with her Dad!
  11. It has to be on the worst day of the year. Why why why would they hold it on trout opener? There are more than just hard core muskie anglers out there you know. I am a multi species angler and will be damned if I miss out on trout opener. Too bad i say, their loss.
  12. Golden Beach Cottages on Rice Lake. Very kid oriented, Lots to do, trails, swimming pool, shuffle board, banquet hall....
  13. I was fishing the mouth of a small creek. The guys upstream saw me catch a couple fish and decided they wanted in on the action. The tried to grease me out by slipping in between me and the current. Easy cure for that was just cast over their lines and brought in a big hair ball of 4 floats, including mine. Cut my line and retied. Did it the second time, they cursed me out and told me to learn how to cast. I replied they should learn about fishing etiquette. I retied, waited for them to cast once again, they realized what i was going to do and left. Ahhh, I fish to relax and to get away from the hustles and bustles of life. However it was nice to stoop to their level and vent some rage. Man it felt good! LOL
  14. The tentative date for the Cobourg fish lift is Saturday April 12. If the fish are there and the weather is good, it could be done a week earlier. This is no longer run under the guidance or funding of the OMNR. Due to cutbacks CIFWIP is not available thus not allowing insurance for volunteers. With much thanks to the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority, scientific permits have been issued and volunteers are insured through GRCA policy. Hope to see you there. Cheers...
  15. Nah, join a Muskie club and then you will understand a costly venture...
  16. bass Pro has the 9000 on sale for $89.97 http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CFPageC?storeId=10151&langId=-1&catalogId=10051&appID=163&template=circular.cfm&i=189529&m=30090&storeID=11&tab=3 I have this one and believe it is the most popular one used. With the Nanook thermal, I only have it on low setting, even on the coldest of days. You can print that flyer off and take it to Canadian Tire or TSC and they will do a price match.
  17. i used a Lowrance X135 for many many years. Now I use my Lowrance HDS 5. I too agree with using a graph instead of a flasher.
  18. Just thought I'd bump this up. I forgot to for the first meeting. For anyone who fishes from shore on a stream or river, it would be of great benefit to attend these meetings. Only anglers can show support for anglers. There have been several individual people who have fought to protect our rights as anglers yet very few ever attend these meetings to show support. Let the cities know that "YES THERE IS URBAN FISHING OPPORTUNITIES"! Even if you don't fish from shore, come and support your fellow anglers. One day it will be all taken away if we don't stand together.
  19. I'm not new to steelie fishing but last year was the first time on the Niagara. A first for me was to convince myself to use beads. Second drift, as I'm retrieving my float, I literally saw my first steelie come up from behind the bead and engulf it! this instantly created another spot for my addiction and a vote of confidence on a bead. Bad bad bad fish, wish it never happened...
  20. Public Meetings for the Greater Toronto and Area Waterfront: An Urban Recreational Fisheries Plan For Immediate Release: The Ministry of Natural Resources and four Conservation Authorities – Toronto and Region, Credit Valley, Central Lake Ontario, and Ganaraska Region have initiated the preparation of an Urban Recreational Fisheries Plan for the Greater Toronto and Area. Other partners in the process are the municipalities, federal and provincial agencies and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. The Urban Recreational Fisheries Plan effectively covers the north shore of Lake Ontario from the western border of the City of Mississauga extending to the eastern border of Durham Region. The plan will integrate information on the state of the fisheries and their habitat with existing plans and strategies to create a document to guide the partners and other interested parties in improving urban recreational fishing opportunities. The plan will look at improving access to shoreline fishing, taking a systematic approach to improving fish habitat, and promote the diverse fishing opportunities available along the waterfront. The fall meetings will present a draft of the plan to the public and it is important to get as many anglers and interested citizens as possible to the meetings to demonstrate that urban fishing is a vital interest to the fishing community. Public feedback will be incorporated into the plan, which is scheduled to be completed spring of 2014. Five public meetings have been scheduled around the Greater Toronto Area in October and November. The meetings will be similar but local issues will be discussed. Public Meeting schedule: Thursday October 17, 2013 Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority Office 100 Whiting Avenue, Oshawa, Ontario L1H 3T3 Doors open at 6:30 PM, presentation starts at 7:00 PM meeting to conclude at 9:00 PM.

  21. You can't go wrong with black bucktails. Take lots though, if your not loosing jigs, your not getting close enough to the bottom. There is a science to working a bucktail in the current. You have to have a special touch to jig just before you touch bottom. Count down rapalas and floating rapalas with a split shot also work. black/silver, black/gold. 2 1/2" long max. Slooooow retrieve.
  22. There has never been a Pike caught or recorded in Little Lake. There is Muskie, walleye (though limited), bass, and panfish. It is also well known for a decent carp fishery. Little lake has been stocked the last few years with walleye in hopes of recovering the walleye population. The fingerlings which were stocked would still be less than the legal harvest size. if you are fishing from shore, try and squeeze yourself in between the other anglers and fish lock 19. The only Pike recorded and VERIFIED by the MNR is from Balsam Lake to Lake Simcoe and one fish VERIFIED in Rice lake. Cameron Lake in the last few years has only had 2 VERIFIED Pike caught (Sir Sandford Fleming trap netting.) Seymour Lake to Trenton also has an established population of Pike.
