    People are too stupid for motor boats in the canal. Brutal honesty is key. Most people who fish around welland can't even bother finding garbage cans. not to mention the portion of people who think its ok to burn thier garbage along the river instead of cleaning up after themselves. The latter being a practice i have personally seen preformed by 3 generations.

    Infact lets start a pool, 
    first death.
    Alcohol related?
    Jet ski collision?
    Kid jumping from bridge smashed by boat or jetski? 
    Although really the last death was drunks in a canoe right? During the time when motors were allowed though?

    Pretty important, unless ofcourse nobody hunts in thorold, which i believe includes port robinson and allanburg.
    I am not a hunter just a believer in freedom to gather ones food.

    Thats the problem with the shift to digital audio.
    Preamp will solve the problem but your best bet is older equipment. I run my tv through a 60s marantz. I may not get 5.1 or whatever the kids get today but with a flip of the switch i have vinyl. I only have cds in my vehicle.

    Why dont we just delete the thread as its been stolen by a few jackasses for their own righteous fights.
    Considering the fact that all this talk in the open forum as somewhere as equally dangerous and delicate as the grand river should have probably been instantly hushed to keep this from getting out of control, or getting some person killed because they didnt know what they were getting themselves into.

    After an early start to Saturday which turned a hectic trip to the local landfill in to a tank of gas and a dozen worms. I was off to fill a bucket of minnows at a great spot with ample parking and even bathrooms, so as usual quick in and out with some small talk among anglers back on the road for some unknown adventure.
    After what seemed like eternity I finally found a spot that felt right and after all was the least crowded of my hiding spots. Surveying the crowd I managed a nice spot to sit in the shade and enjoy the weather, first couple casts seemed promising but the water was still and inactive. Then as things grew quiet the float stopped in the current moved alittle before it wwas noticed it was over. From the depths rises a carp sized musky. To the amazement of the unlookers seems rather disinterested in the plethora of oversized and multicoloured bodybaits of assorted styles and swims out into open water, to live another day in paradise. Only to leave this poor SAP stripped of bait which I found out about ten minutes later.
    After switching from minnows to worms it was on like donkey Kong, fast and furious through the dozen worms but it was serious sunfish territory all were good enough to take home but not thinking dinner all were released, the dude who bushwacked out shortly before I left had a basket of what I could only imagine was destined for sustinence.
    Day two with it being Monday I had to move quickly to obtain minnows, and success was mine in and out quicker than a virgin on prom night. Off to my favourite little hole only to ofind my inner sanctuary to be forfeited to a couple unlucky guys already set up, who to my amazement slept the night due to a lack of tools to change a flat, good thing they were there as it was warm and overcrowding was proving fatal to "the help" they provided an airator and the conversation started from there, so my new friends named "Shorty" and "dukes" were down from the big smoke to try their hands at the giant cats that I myself am yet to really catch. Them hunting for monsters turned the talk onto the available species in the water they were fishing and for some reason they asked about snakehead, and I was able to catch a bowfin within a few minutes followed by another one shortly after so they could see the difference. Both being small for bowfin only about a foot in length were realeased but not before Shorty could get really close to needing some river bank surgery, always nice when the hook doesn' t puncture beyond the barb. After catching a half dozen nice crappie all would have been decent slabs but again not thinking fish for dinner were released, actually that's a lie one was hooked deep and bleeding like a civ it went to my new friends who decided to fish the night away after a few of their friends came down.
    While the sun light began to dwindle the catfish moved in and were they ever having a goodtime, even saw a yellow cat, no joke the thing was straight out of the simpsons, minus the third eye. I even tried switching to a catfish rig and was still catching crappie , so I cut like foreskin and was home by dark.
    All in all there was
    8 crappie
    6 sunfish
    3 rockbass
    2 bowfin
    Sorry there are not going to be any photos, and about the length I can really ramble sometimes, the scary part should be this is has been brought to you from my phone, possibly stealing your WiFi. Remember if you don't want people to get your internet use a better password the abc123.
    Good night folks.

    go ahead and waste your time fishing there, like it was mentioned. its not illegal to fish but you can only fish from the trail/bridge. its an excellant source of pike bait, thats about it. you wanna go bass fishing in a little creek make the walk to the bottom of decew and beat the swimmers thats an excellant spot. you wanna catch trout in a creek go to alliston, or big creek.

    Laker from a kayak. What a thrilling fight

    This rainbow went home for dinner

    I forgot my minnow net so I borrowed 2 shiners. I dropped them in a container of bath or Epson's salts and shook them awhile. Dropped them straight down on a small lead and waited. I was anchored for the laker and had I not been paying close attention he would have barely nibbled the bait off. The rainbow I was drifting and it was just on there but again what a wild fight in a kayak.
    Guys are getting bows right off the rocks at Nicholl's all day long. Mine both came after the lunch hour and I was only out for about 30 minutes in total. Once I got lunch I left as usual. I've seen quite a few more posted on facebook the last few days also. Mine was a little big for a keeper but plenty of nice small eaters being caught with the occasional brute
