  1. Not sure you would be pummeled for that, but push their buttons too much.... I found most officers back in the day where pretty forgiving. Pulled over once in one of my muscle cars, the cop said you can definitely out race us, but you can't beat the radio. I met many a good cop back in my silly racing days.
  2. Could not turn down such a mild day. Gave it go, went 1 for 3. Nice fatty 30 inches, released. Might be the last one on open water with the temps dropping.
  3. Pike must of been hungry with a fresh looking chub in its gut and going after our offerings. Was caught at one of your spots you target carp on, Beaverdam Rd. One day I would like you to show me how to prepare a pike like you do....of course means you might not get the next one
  4. DarryL, there was one other guy out, but left after about half an hour. A few others were inquiring about the action, but didn't wet a line. Tyler, usually I like a pan fry with coconut oil, salt, pepper and garlic. However this one is in the smerch's hands....
  5. Out for our daily exercise, Joe and I pounded some of the shorelines of Gibby. The two small ponds are frozen over, but the main lake was ice free. We went 1 for 3, with this nice 28 incher, which is currently being prepared for a meal.
  6. Cop: "So, like, how's it goin', eh?" Me: "Oh beauty." Cop: "So, like, you live in Hamilton. Whatcha doin' way up here?" Me: "I am exercising and going ice fishing." Cop: "Like, you're supposed to stay at home, cuz, like, there's a stay-at-home order, eh? So, like, I think I have to write you a ticket, unless you can come up with a viable explanation.....?" Me: {crickets} Me: "Would you like a donut?"
  7. Thanks to Snags for taking the pics on both threads.
  8. April not quite a year old, Angel 13
  9. Well, if it was a good looking young female, she might have a bigger problem in her hands
  10. Could you not of used two rods as you were sort of ice fishing 😎
  11. Think I'll just move to the back of the line
  12. My New Year's fishing resolutions, Don't buy more lures, ( I have more than enough ), unless they look really pretty. Streamline my lure selection, I don't need 20 lures for an outing...that one won't happen... Be honest when someone asks if I'm catching anything....that's going to be tough. Full pat down of anyone going out on the water with me, no bananas..... Happy New year everyone
  13. Good question as I'm also thinking of buying a toy I really don't need 🙃
  14. Holy moly smerch, have you used any of these. If so, any success....
  15. My hydro bill came in last week and is lower than previous bills. Tiered works for me.
  16. This one was released. We keep a few here and there. As well, any that are deep hooked or damage to gills, come home for dinner. As far as the second picture, Joe thinks it was the entrails of a deer. Not sure how it got into Gibson waters, was not aware any hunting was allowed in the area.
  17. 30+incher caught by Joe today, I got the white stripe At first glance this looked like a octopus...
  18. Yes Tyler, the pike are fattening up for sure. Winter pike are not very aggressive and tend to be lazier. The last few times out, slow presentation has been the key for us. When ice fishing for them, I guess you can't get much slower than that. The current temps are not that bad, but the added winds make it tough being out there for any length of time without any shelter.
  19. Winter solstice arriving today was a day celebration for Joe and I. Happy that daylight hours will now be getting longer, we decided to bring the day in with some meal size pike. Not to be disappointed, we both got one and lost one.
  20. If this is a possible side effect, I may just wait a while.
  21. Smerchly pulled this post up on another thread, from back in the day...thought I would revive it for some that many enjoy a good chuckle
  22. that was one hilarious post Bill. I totally forgot I put that together. I still carry the original with me
  23. None of my other lures were getting any attention Bill. I have used your bait twice a few weeks back, but no luck. Not totally sure how to use it, so I cast it, let it hit bottom and pull it back stopping to make sure it stays on or near bottom. Not sure when she picked it up, on the fall or retrieve, but thought at first I had snagged some weeds. Then she fought. As far as live bait, hard to say. Joe caught both of his pike on dead chubs. I had one on a smelt, got off, and then used a chub as well for my second one. Couple weeks back couple of guys were using live minnows and caught 3
  24. Afternoon pike hunt paid off. Joe caught two at about 4 lbs, one pictured. Bill gave me this pattletail which I have never really used in the past. It paid off with my 7 lb pike. Later I lost one and then landed another about 4lbs as well.
  25. Was that when you were on the 401 and QEW quite a bit a few years back...Intense highway driving might cause that to happen perhaps. Not a concern for me. Tires still soft, and it's the aggressive tread that does the job in the snow and mud.
