    Hi Boyz, we're up on the West Arm of Nippising for our annual trip We're 2 miles in off the hwy and there's always plenty of critters and always good to see them. Sunday we had 2 moose on the road right in front of us and then this morning while on my daily 4 mile walk I came on this big girl just off the road. She wasn't the least bit concerned with me being there and just went on with eating her breakfast. Thought you might enjoy the pictures.

    I bought a new DEWALT table saw awhile back and the old stand was getting kinda rickety so I built a new one. Then I decided it looked kinda bland so what's a fella to do with a bland stand ??....well, paint it to match the saw. Yeah, I have LOTS of spare time now that I no longer fish LOL

    Spent quite a bit of time on the water last week. Fish didn’t come easy. A couple of skunkings on walleye, a broken trolling motor, many km and plenty of hours on the water. Finally found some active fish. Got them on a variety of baits with the big swimbaits and soft plastic jerkbaits getting most of the fish. They did not want the jerk bait at all for some reason. The new Minn Kota maxxum performed flawlessly. I should have got one long ago. Love the responsiveness of the cable rive

    One of the things I miss about not living in St.Catharines anymore is the early season big lake fishing. Born and raised in St.Catharines, the spring salmon derby was my fav time of year. Although living in Barrie gets me access to a lot more water up here, I still usually get the boat wet a few times down there each spring with some browns, lakers and some early kings. Alarm clock went off at 2:30, on the road by 3 at the ramp by 5. 3rd one in the lot, not to shabby. Got everything rigged and ready to go and we were off. Headed west towards Jordan, was thinking of getting out the mast and planner boards but just much work int he dark, so we just stuck with dipsys and the riggers. Well as soon as I could safely turn off the nav lights, all hell breaks loose. Riggers going off, dipsys going off, trying to drive the boat, it was chaos. At one point we had a triple header and one rod sat in the rigger for a good 10mins while we tried to land both our fish. I haven't had a day like this on Lake O in a loooooong time. The girlfriend got all the rigger fish and I got all the dipsy fish, I've reeled in enough salmon she hasn't so she was on rod duty. We got fish on spoons, SD/flies and MC Rockets. I didn't even both to put a body bait down or use the planner boards today. Wolfpacks of 3/4 fish were marked and then the rods would pop. What an awesome day. All kings, biggest maybe 15lb? All really nice clean fish. After a while we stopped taking pics and just tossed the fish back. Bite died at around 11am and that was it. Fun fun day, the gf says her arms are sore, lol.

    I've had a bit of a rough patch for the last year and a half, loosing Sue really took it's toll on me, tried drowning my sorrows for a while, all that did was give me hangovers. Tried running away from things, that didn't work either. Thankfully my friends and family have stuck by me and I am starting to get myself sorted out! This winter has gone by so fast, the late ice on Simco kind of messed up my ice fishing plans, my son came down and we did manage to get out three times and get some perch but that was it for Simco. I had hoped to get out several times but..... Went to Mexico for a week in Feb.: that didn't work out so well, it had been years since I'd flown anywhere, massive confusion at the airport with all the new; scan this do that, sit and wait.... Got robbed on our second day there, some how they got into our room and into our safe (which the resort said couldn't be done) yup $2000.00 cash between my buddy and I gone and a watch his late wife had given him..... turned out we weren't the only ones, we found out several other people had similar problems and this was a 5 star resort. Resort wouldn't do anything, just kept saying they were investigating. Besides that the beaches were a mess with seaweed. Won't do that again!!!! Now on a brighter note; Went to Myrtle Beach from Feb. 24 to March 24, we were going to just do a road trip and tour around the South but when we got to Myrtle Beach I decided to go over to Apache Pier (I'd been there years ago and had a blast). I decided to ask if they had any rental units available in the camp ground and it turned out that they did (they call them " leisure Living units" which are really trailers type units on a permanent site. We managed to rent a really nice 2 bedroom for the month for $750.00, 3 minute walk to the pier, 5 minute drive to Walmart and all kinds of shopping. It wasn't as warm as Florida but there wasn't any snow and it wasn't busy. Fell in love with the place all over again, went pier fishing almost every day, caught whitings galore (a little fish crisp and deep fried, you can have your shrimp, this is MUCH better), crokers, shark, slicks, puffer fish, even a crab that decided to hang on to my bait and wouldn't let go. Met up with some really great guys, one of them lives just South of me, small world isn't it? Some of our neighbors that live in the park most of the year were kind enough to show us some of the local favorite dining spots etc.. If you ever see a place called "Mission" in your travels, Smoked meat sandwich with a side of slaw (don't bother ordering the fries the sandwich is a 1/2 lb of meat alone), best smoked meat I have ever had! I have already booked for all of next winter (Jan. Feb. March) but a slightly bigger 2 bedroom place (but 1 and 1/2 bathrooms) still only 3 minutes from the pier so..... 😉 Anyway, just thought I'd check in and try to catch up.

    Don't you think that some of this is just getting a little too much for catching fish the size of bass? I'm sure it helps to catch fish and can be fun at times, but....I guess I don't know what I'm saying. Way too much money sitting in front of him....probably the value of my whole boat. LOL

    Hey everyone. It’s been a while since I posted a fishing report. Thought I would share a great family paddling trip I had this weekend. To be honest, I wasn’t even going to bring a rod on this trip. It’s our first time going on a family paddle this year, and when I rolled out of town, I didn’t even know what river we were going to hit. We decided to try a new river that I have never paddled before. There was a strong current and head wind, which made paddling my canoe with my 2 kids very hard, and slow. But we made it to a nice little spot to stop for a picnic, and well needed break. It looked like a fishy spot, so I took a cast. I caught 7 fish in my first 10 casts. My son Alex was my net man! And we had a blast. My wife saw the action, and came over for a few casts, and she tied in to a nice pike! When my daughter saw how much fun we were having, she decided to give a cast as well. She only took one cast…. 12lb pike! The smiles say it all! At the same time we were landing the pike, my son grabbed a rod and casted and caught a nice bass. His first time doing the entire process and catching a fish all by himself! All in, we caught about 15 fish in the hour we were there. And we brought 2 pike home to turn in to fish tacos!! The paddle back was full of smiles and fish stories, with the wind at our tail, and the current pushing us home. It could not have been a better day!! Really really good memories had by all!

    I got out last night after work for a quick fish. Just got out on the water and were welcomed by a monsoon. Filled the boat half full of water, but we stuck it out because those darn fish were going to be biting! Then we battled the wind. We did boat 12 walleye in the couple of hours we were out. Thank god the sun showed up after the down pour. Caught all but one trolling.

    Nice article and picture..... a few years old... a different team. Your meme's are getting tired, your act is getting old. But you are the self appointed internet tough guy. Good for you.... I can't imagine what its like to have that type of reputation. Repeating the same thing in different words over and over. We get it... you're not a "Laffs" fan... join the ever growing club. Problem is........ you sound stupid. O and while you are in my kitchen... get Chris, Bill and I a beer...... adults will be watching the playoff game tomorrow night. We'll let you know when we need another. Go LEAFS Go

    All the fun I had with the whities has come to an end. Still lots of ice,so it,s perch,n time. Im not a big percher guy and I dont use live bait,so using baits not so familiar to me is a challenge. The morning was beautiful. Little wind and the sun was coming up. Drilled my first hole and I was WT%#%$ Dirty brown water 1/2 mile out. Moved out another 1/2 and found some water that was fishable. First fish was a dink,then the 2nd was a whopper It measured 14 1/2 on the button. Pic does not show this fish justice Ended the morning with 6 perch. Just enough for a fresh dinner. .

    I recently raffled off a donation custom Sage Rod Build with all the proceeds going to the LHFC Trout hatchery. I was very proud of the work on this build and it raised $2,150.00 for the rearing of Steelhead to eventually be stocked into the Saugeen River. A few pictures of the build.

    It's not just fanatics, it's everyone. From the players to the coaches to the parents, to anyone who roots for a team. Nothing wrong with some emotional investment in a team. Sure beats sitting back and attempting to ridicule people because of it.

    Just got the news about an hour ago. I won a spot to go fishing in British Columbia, at the Duncanby Lodge. Man am I ever pumped!!!!! Anyone that knows me; they'll tell you I don't get excited or I don't show it. When my sales rep from my main parts supplier, told me the news; I jumped up from my desk, ran over to her and gave her a big old hug. Don't know all the travel arrangements yet; other then we fly into Vancouver and then take a float plane to the lodge. We (other draw winners) leave mid June for four days. I've entered this draw for the last 6 years, (since it started) and never thought I'd actually win a spot. BUT I"M GOING TO FISH THE BC COAST!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!! Here's a link to the lodge's website Duncanby Lodge Dan. NO HAPPY HAPPY DAN! LOL

    They're all set up and biting! This is going to be a beautiful weekend to get out for a feed of perch! We released the biggest ones to help sustain the population! 1/8 oz. Ultra Tungsten ball jigs with various plastics were the key! Figure out what depth they're at, stay on that depth using your Navionics charts and you'll smash them but please be selective.

    Sometimes you just happen to hit one of those special days. Was out on Sunday with a buddy and we probably caught 25 walleye along with a number of incidental bass, muskie and crappie. Kept one of the smaller walleye for dinner.

    A report on CBC news this morning talked of a First Nations community on the Albany River in northern Ontario that has had to be evacuated each and every year for the past 17 years. Their Chief said that they have been requesting that the entire community be relocated to another area for years. The cost to the taxpayers has been 15 to 20 million dollars per year for damages and temporary lodging for an entire town. The definition of insanity comes to mind.

    ‘‘Tis the season again. Ticks are waking up after being dormant in the cold. 4C and warmer and they are active and feeding. They are more active in spring and fall than in summer heat. Protect yourselves and remember to do a tick check at the end of the day if you’ve been in the woods or tall grass. You won’t feel a tick bite or a tick that’s feeding on you. They stay attached for 5-7 days. You need to see it and pull it off carefully by the head immediately against you skin. If you get it off early when it’s small the chance of getting Lyme disease is much reduced. Dogs should go on preventative medications now. Till about Christmas. On another note, there is a new canine tapeworm emerging in Ontario. Biologists are finding it in about 25% of wolves and coyotes. If your dog picks it up he will not likely get sick but will expose you to the tapeworm eggs. These microscopic eggs, if consumed accidentally, can cause serious health problems in people. Im putting my patients on a new monthly dewormer that gets these and other worms. To protect the dog and the family. Called Interceptor Plus. Talk to your vet. Cheers, Peter

    Creating great memories , cheering your team is what its all about ....albeit not the outcome we wanted ... I remember Leafs losing to Montreal in 1977 and 1978 ... that was crazy .. (Sittler, Macdonald, Salming) and then 92 and 93 (Kings and Canucks) ... (damn Gretzky) but my best memory was sitting under a tarp in Algonquin Park with Mike Borger listening to Leafs vs Bruins in 2013 on a little transistor radio ...we went speck fishing but it was no way we were going to miss the play by play ... every time the Leafs scored we were hootin and hollerin !! man we must have looked hilarious ... great feeling being able to enjoy that with another passionate fan in a place like Algonquin Park...

    I pretty sure the new breed of truck drivers we see driving these rigs, are all "legally" licensed and "trained". It's just their interpretation of a snow storm that confuses them; you see things don't get slippery in a sand storm. Dan.

    Ya the weather was to be so TERRIFYING. Woke up at 4am heard the rain on the window. Back to sleep til 5:30. Look outside and said you buggers. Flags were limp. Grab my gear and get to said spot. South winds were called for, so selected a south shore spot. Ya the one that has not produced for me yet this year. Well wouldn't you know it,they were there, and wouldn't you know it, not a single sole out there. LMAO. There was little to no wind,a light rain for about 5 minutes the sun even came out for a spell. Walking in the snow drifts was a bit of a challenge. They softened up a bunch. Thankfully,my walk was not far. Travel was to be light this morning. Toboggan,finder,rods and auger. Fish food style. I got 4 hours in then the wind started. Home time. Fresh fish for dinner tonight again, and will share with my co-workers Monday. Travel was light Meegs was on fire again.

    Hi all, fishing has been great, catching not so much... lol. Jack wanted to come early morning snook hunting with me and landed a dandy. The fish hit my weedless set up 3 times with no hook up so I changed us both over to 3/8oz swimbait jig head with a 3.5” Berkeley Ripple Shad in the tried and trusted pearl/pink. 3 minutes later I hear Jack yelling and turn around to see something on his line almost pulling him over. I had to use every ounce of self control not to take the rod from him even though he asked and was a little bit panicky, he thought it might be a shark and was scared. He did a superb job of taming the fish and was a little bit pumped, so pumped in fact that we ended up leaving 5 minutes later because he wanted to tell his mum!

    I thought it might be fun to take the family on a road trip on March break and watch the Leafs in ottawa. I checked, the crappiest seats are $180 each, so no thanks. Interesting though, a couple days earlier, we could see St Louis/ sens for $29 a ticket, lol, and that's on March break! Unless the Leafs are in town, they can't give the tickets away. What a disgusting blemish ottawa and the sens are on Canadian hockey.
