  1. Yes, it doesn't make sense to expect the bigger population to travel to smaller towns. If St. Kitts still carries the dog food and some basics, I'm good. If not, will probably give up the membership. Not interested driving the QEW in the winter for food. One never knows when a accident will close those stretches of highways, which always seems to occur. Will probably watch the flyers for deals at our local stores.
  2. I use to use them a lot in the past with pretty good success. For some reason got away from them, with all the other tackle available. Will definitely be using them more.
  3. As I approached the 6 diverters on Martindale pond yesterday, they were full of cormorants. They started diving into the water as I got closer. Easily over ---500--- birds. Explains why fishing has been tougher on this body of water.
  4. Was a good day out there for sure Bill. Glad to hear you got one as well.
  5. Yeah, after we met up this morning, you were right, get out there and give it a go. Sure glad I did
  6. A first for me. Used a few different lures and had one hit. Decided to use my #5 Vibrax which doesn't get much use. First cast fish on, a sheephead of all things. Well at least I know I won't have the white stripe today. Second cast same area, pike on, nice size as well. A few more casts and nothing. Moved around using different lures, after a half hour, back to the earlier spot, and yep, put the Vibrax back on. Few casts later another pike. Nice I thought. Few more casts yet another pike. Feeling pretty good, that's for sure. Decided to change
  7. Three pike from the canoe today, nice afternoon to be out on the water.
  8. The Buffalo fish as most know, belong to the sucker family and are a native North American species. Common telling sign is ' no ' whiskers, whereas carp have them. Now the question is, is this a big or small mouth Buffalo sucker. Any help distinguishing between the two would be appreciated Weighed in at 19 lbs
  9. One carp and one sucker. The sucker, to be posted in the fishing forum soon, is an interesting one
  10. Apparently like us, keeping their distance
  11. For the last week or so, there have been 3 cormorants sitting on that stump....ffs.
  12. While I like Rebel news, this was not very convincing with only three people interviewed.
  13. I don't care how the cormorants are culled and left, just get rid as many as possible.
  14. Will be hitting the shores as well soon for the toothie critters. As you know BIll, it's been my passion hunting these pike. However like the carp, the numbers are not there for me. Snags and I walked various shorelines along Gibby the other day, covering a lot of area, for at least 2 hours and no signs of life in the water. Head scratcher for sure.
  15. For the hours put in, not really, but better than the white stripe.
  16. Tried another part of Gibby today. 6 & 7 pounds, just litttle ones today.
  17. At it again this afternoon for a few hours. For the amount of time put in, the numbers are really lacking this year. Got this gal and she came in at 13 lbs. This carp net is to large for my liking, anyone interested in it PM me. April never saw a fish before and tried eating the fins.... Anyways hoping the numbers pick.
  18. With a nice gps tracking device attached to his van, the use of satellite imagery, and of course a handy drone, was able to find one of Smerch's secret spots. Didn't see a lot of action, but Joe and I did get this little 9 pounder. You can trust me Bill, I'll keep this spot to myself, unless bribed with a nice chunk of money
  19. Saw the first goldfinch this morning on the sunflower. There are now 7 faces blooming
  20. First for me. I plant sunflowers each year, but never had one with five heads. This plant also has four others heads not open just below the five faces. Pretty cool in my books.
  21. Walking the dogs along Gibby this AM, I brought my rod and believe it or not, caught this skinny 22incher on the first cast. That's a first for me.
  22. Need to water this one almost daily Bill. The driveway beside the plant has a stone base of about 18 inches and probably sucks away most of the water. The leaves will start to wilt without watering or rain. Many people walking by give it a second look. If I'm out at the time, some ask questions about it. If they have a child with them, I ask them if they recall the story--Jack and the bean stalk🙃
  23. As can be seen in previous pics, this plant grows in spurts. The main plant is now 11 feet tall, and the other is 10 1/2 feet.
