  1. I wish my commute involved my canoe
  2. Unfortunately I’d prefer to keep my lure a secret lol, it’s a 6.5 inch soft fish plastic jerk bait of my own design, made the original out of play dough and used plaster of Paris to pour a mold around it, I’ve caught plenty of trophies with it, just need to make a smaller and larger version of it
  3. Went out for an hour last night to Jordan marina, saw about 6-8 other anglers fishing. As soon as I geared up the gentleman beside me caught a small sheepshead about 2-3 pounds. After about 20 minutes I notice something slash at my bait, missed it the first time but not the second, set the hook into my first bowfin in quite a while. Small guy only a few pounds, but this is the first one I’ve seen or heard of coming out of the marina, although I’m sure they are around. Fish was caught on my own homemade soft plastic lure
  4. That stinks Tyler, but if I were you I’d get the di/si if you could, technically you already paid for it, and I also thought 600 was a bit pricey…… when I first started using DI on my helix I found it was entertaining and informative, the first time I used it I was on a northern lake, fished eight hours without a bite but since I had my eyes glued to the screen, learning all the fine details underwater kept me satisfied, I never want to go without it again to be honest
  5. Just got an email from humminbird about upgrades to various models in the helix series, I hope you got yours for a good deal
  6. I loved my helix 5 when I had it, lost in an unfortunate canoe accident I wasn’t apart of…. I had the gen1, got it when it first came out, but mine only had DI, no SI or gps, did you get one with any DI or SI? I found the down imaging to be very useful, helped me fish out a lost rod in 20 feet of water, I could literally see it laying on bottom
  7. Well done, must’ve felt great 👍
  8. 25” would probably be in the 8 pound range, wow that’s a giant, I would mount that beast
  9. I’ll definitely be posting some pictures of it soon
  10. Solid paint job in red, the original colour. Like yours my father purchased this approximately 40 years ago, this was at the sportsman show back in the day, and I made sure the purchase was justified, put many war wounds on this canoe, we’re lookin to bring this back close to original condition. She’s a freighter style, is rated for somewhere in the 800-900 pound range. I can stand up in either front or back and fish comfortably like it’s a casting deck, good balance is still required, although I can walk from front to back comfortably. Biggest downside is the weight, approximately 90-100 pounds, makes this a two person portage canoe
  11. Nice job, my dad and I are still finishing up our canoe, did all the fibreglass repairs and now just sand and paint to go
  12. Happy Canada Day, so happy to live in freshwater fishing heaven 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦
  13. Nice catch, feels good when you’re on short time but still manage to be productive
  14. The aurora trout is on my personal bucket list
