    Not really "us" anglers who mostly keep our spots clean . Those "snowflake artists" have been doing this everywhere . Our permissive "liberal" society allows this crap to continue with little consequences . Much of the garbage there comes from "visitors" who either don't know any better ,  or don't give a rat's ass about the garbage. .....We certainly could use more plain clothes MNR  people .....and start the fines at $1000 .(money talks)  .

    I would love to see it Smerch. I would even be willing to pay more for my fishing license to support it.
    There just doesn't seem to be any interest in enforcing it to protect our access and environment. 
    Education and changing peoples attitudes has been the focus and I agree to some degree that has worked but for the rest they only respond to repercussions for their actions. 
    We both have probably carried a ton of garbage out of there over the years and it continues to accumulate. I applaud the person that put the garbage bins in and try's to manages those because it doesn't belong to the town.

    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 during a stage that is much more contagious even affecting younger age groups?

    I know that it's important to take steps to protect the beauty of Niagara and the surrounding areas, but it's a shame that we are limited to shore fishing spots in the region............For people that only fish from shore (like me), we can't afford to have any more fishing locations taken away from us....................

    A few more today.  All between 9-11lbs from 15-20ft of green clear water.    They would only take 1 single lure which had to be green.

    Canada is actually really bad at testing and detecting/diagnosing Lyme when compared to the states. I’ve read about people who are told they don’t have lyme for quite some time and have to go to doctors in Florida to finally get diagnosed correctly, at a high price of course... 
    it’s a shame too considering how many ticks there are in southern Ontario.

    NiagaraRiverFisher reacted to smerchly in sports   
    I don't watch any sports now except fishing related ..... ( the power of boycott)
      I used to be a hockey fan ( go Bruins ! ) ,but over the years  Big bucks turned sports into a brutal "game" where the players use brute force instead of skill . The wimmins play better hockey today !  Now , sports has turned political . When I seen them "taking the knee" and pissing on their own countries flag .....time to say goodbye .  ....same goes for other "sports" . So I only watched the Olympic sports , until they found  crooked judges ,,,,,,  Soccer is a good game for the kids ....lots of good exercise ......but  "adult" soccer is now win at any cost  as well ....and become a multi millionaire ..
         .....sent to me via email ......  typical soccer "pro"    (we use that word too freely)

    Bought my first shotgun from John Whelan in '65, dad and the Whelans go way back into the 40's. Drank a lot of brown pops with Gus and Dave in his basement in the 70/80's surrounded by milling machines, lathes and drill presses etc.

    Sounds like an exciting outing. Don't worry. all us guys tend to overestimate the size of fish, among other things and underestimate the cost of gear and the number of beer we had when together with friends, so it all balances out in the end.

    I get the free paper "Niagara this Week" in my mail box each week . I like reading William Thomas columns , great  sense of humour and master of puns ......
      He wrote a very informative column last week (  Mar.15 ) and he is very knowledgeable about that area  and drops many names and places .  some of you may have read this already , I thought it was very interesting !  It took me a while to find it on Google ....hope the "copy & paste " works ......
