  1. Your absolutely correct. Both hut operators I called said they are almost booked for weekends through the season. The weekdays are still open. I know one of the operators personally and he said it might be his best season in a long time if they don’t get shutdown. I use my own hut, move when I want, cook some fresh fish, keep to myself and enjoy the time on the hard water. Plus I can pick and choose from so many areas and species within 2 minutes to 30 minutes.
  2. So I called 2 hut operators to find out what the policy is for them. 1st operator said you must wear a mask while travelling to and from the hut and must wear gloves. They will take more than one group at a time following the mask and glove rule. In the hut you do what you want with who you want. 2nd operator said you must wear a mask and gloves to and from your hut and he will only take one group at a time to the huts. Both are from Lake Simcoe.
  3. My go to when at the whirlpool is float fishing
  4. Did you use the neighbours 4 year kid to hold the perch so it looks bigger 😋
  5. Some of my favourite type of fish to target is panfish. Well done Bruce and enjoy the good eats.
  6. I fished with a guy this summer that used a unit that he casted out but had a wireless unit. It was interesting and showed bottom structure and depth pretty accurately. He used it with very heavy braided line.
  7. I use a similar setup from shore but I have a sliding weight and add a float to the end of the line. Cast out and start reeling till the float goes to the bottom against the weight. Now with control release line maybe 2 feet at a time until the float comes to the surface. Not only does this work to measure the depth you can drag the weight on the bottom to find out what type of bottom there is. If you find a weed edge and want to concentrate on that area leave your float system out as a marker. I use a sliding swivel for the weight to remove the sinker when transporting or changing sizes and a
  8. I’m at Bingemans on the Grand River and I’m about $4000 right on the river.
  9. So I haven’t been down that way in quite a while is the fishing closed off on the east side or is it still accessible for shore fishing? I am guessing the west side is still closed off for us to fish. Do I need to bring the boat?
  10. If it’s a conservation issue call MNR tip line. If it’s trespassing call the police. FYI the tip line works. I called it and the officer was there in 30 minutes and issued all fines and no warnings for using 3 and 4 rods and another for no license.
  11. Looks great. I find you need to be careful using on a hook because the hook can bury itself in the bag. On a hair the hook is always exposed. I use a super gel corn scent made by pro cure. Just spread some on the bag before presenting the bait. Stays on for a very long time.
  12. I have been using mesh for corn for so many years. It works great and I soak them with scent when fishing in a group of people to make it stand out. Remember carp can smell scents from up to a half km away. Their eyesight is impeccable so once they get close it’s easy for them to hone in so I don’t make big bags. I do have some of the Thundermist catch a carp pouches to sample but find them all most too big. But no doubt about it fished on a hair now worries from current or gobies. I know when I retrieve my line there is still bait on my hook.
  13. I have noticed with the warmer water that I have been successful this past few weeks fishing the deeper water. My carp fishing moves from 10 feet to 30 feet within an hour of sunrise.
