Still o.k. to fish????


Recommended Posts

So is it still o.k. to go out and do some fishing????  If you're allowed to go for a walk outside to get some fresh air, I don't see why not.......If we practice 

social distancing while out fishing (and perhaps wear a mask), I think that perhaps we will be o.k........Just my thoughts.......

Niagara Police just went on record saying they will NOT be stopping people arbitrarily to ask them where they are from , or what they are doing. Now if they receive a "complaint" they will be obligated to investigate and see it through.

Cops maybe won't stop you arbitrarily, but may set up road blocks to check vehicles.

Anyway - to answer the original question - yes, you can still go fishing - per the Ontario Government Parks website.

They will be shutting down boat ramps though.

It isn't about a virus - it never was.  It's about control.

That's good to know .  I hope to see fewer people coming from Toronto as it seems the huge 600 seat jumbo jets are still bringing infected people from Dubai .......  

They tell us to stay home and THIS ?.............expect to see large demonstrations soon ......

Just like in the US with Mexican border. Just letting them all in and relocating them all over.

 

On another note, Florida seems to be the most popular state because they're back to normal.

Just checked the OFAH site...

 

The Government of Ontario announced the closure of Crown land camping across the province as part of new measures aimed and curbing the spread of COVID-19. At this time, activities including hunting and fishing remain permitted.

Some things they do make no sense to me .....I went to Walmart on 4th yesterday to get a few necessary food items ....like can corn to feed my carp friends , bananas for good luck fishing , coffee and filters to keep me vertical , etc . I noticed the "goods" section was taped off so I couldn't buy a fishing lure .......

 But alas  ....drive to N.Falls and buy anything you want at Walmart or Costco as it is designated as a "tourist" area ....???  Welcome one and all......there is no c19 in Niagara.Falls ?

Every store is only supposed to be selling essential items. All other isles should be blocked off no matter where you go. 

I was just at Costco in Niagara Falls and you cannot go down any of the Isles except for the ones with groceries and cleaning supplies

Thanks for that info Darryl .....Our daughter was there about a week ago and said everything was accessible ,they must have shut it down since .   I was lucky to get my deck boards at Home Hardware when they opened it all up .

 When we see the planes coming from India to Toronto ,how do they expect us to respect their orders ....

Thankfully , most of this doesn't affect me much at all as I can still fish as usual , get groceries (bait) , drive to Toronto :rolleyes: or go for a bike ride.... looks like a nice sunny /snowy day for a ride ......

Costco is locked down on non-essential, there is no tourism out option.

 

To give you an idea how FU**ED this is ...

 

I can go into a 7-11 and buy worms, lotto tickets, magazines, and gift cards with no issues, and there is never anyone imposing the limit.  I can't go into a fishing store at all (curbside only).  I can enter a Walmart and they have clothing, toys, gift cards, all locked down as non-essential.  I can go visit my chiropractor or masseuse for my back and those appointments can last upwards of an hour in close contact, but I can't go to Chapters and buy a book where I might not come within six feet of anyone except the clerk who would be behind a plastic shield.

 

I am happy we did not impose Amazon to not sell non-essential.  Every item that is non-essential, an argument can be made it is essential.  Are you employed still?  Does your job have a dress code?  If yes, clothing is essential if there is a look that needs to be maintained and you need to replace some items that no longer fit.  If my coffee maker broke ... I have to curbside that because it is non-essential ... that is BS as I like to look at what I want to buy, I am not one to buy three or four things and return the ones I don't like.

Just had the same conversation with my mom. Technically she is not allowed to come over and visit the grandkids because she doesn't reside in the same residence. But she is allowed to go to a park with a million people running around and visit them there? The government has screwed things up every step of the way and I agree with you the next big Fuk up will be allowing flights to and from India after being warned about yet another variant taking that country over.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the LCBO and the Beer store still open????  These two establishments offer essential services?????  This lack of consistency I don't understand...................

Our Supreme Ruler will never allow flights to India or China to be stopped, I would wager that his bank account is growing by the day with kickbacks from both of those countries.

 

I personally would love to see everything opened up, lay the framework for how to operate safety and push expectations out, make things relatively crystal clear (customers per square footage of the customer side).  Any business caught not following the rules, shut them down for 30 days and a fine, a second violation, 90 days and a bigger fine, and just grow it.  Sure fitting rooms should be closed, but a clothing store can purchase a UV light that has been proven to kill germs for returns.  The only area of concern I see would be bars/restaurants.

Yes they are.  And lotto tickets are also essential.

"They"  say beer & liquor needs to be open as the addicted need to have it ....probably the same reasoning for lotto tickets .  Then casino's should be open too ?  

They should not close tackle shop since I am addicted .......    .......and it looks like a good day to dunk a line tomorrow ......    :Gonefishing:

Seen Ford this morning giving a news conference,  apologizing and crying like my 7 year old because he is grounded and can't go fishing! lol

Not quite what I got outta that. He seemed to be a man partially broken, possibly knowing that his actions or lack of caused more death and heartache than necessary.

He should take some consolation in knowing that most of the deaths attributed to c19 are elderly people who die every year from other flues and ailments that our elders succumb to ...... We could have done more to stop the spread in some of the LTC  "homes" . We should not be making a profit on the sick and elderly .....

Rumor Has It that the government may be backtracking once again and possibly opening up outdoor activities this week. Looks like possibly golfing, camping, and hopefully reopen the boat launches. Fingers crossed. It doesn't seem like they have any idea what they're doing lol. The mayor of Brampton advised he heard it could happen Wednesday.
