    Bowfin Beatdown!

    Went out last week in search of the unheralded bowfin. What a blast throwing jigs at them in shallow water. Sight fishing is my favourite! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrgHHY7fKm0&t=1s

    I got schooled! Whitie smashfest!

    Holy crap did I ever eat some humble pie last week. I pride myself on staying humble and keeping an open mind when it comes to fishing. I feel that closed-mindedness will only get you left in the dust. So last week, when Tom from Fatal Force Outfitters stopped by my hut to offer some tips, I was open ears. I couldnt have imagined what came next... insanity. What a game changer! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFJzSav2lFI

    nice lakers from the weekend

    Hard to say for sure, but I find a significant amount of darker fish in shallow water, so I have to believe that that has a lot to do with it. Diet, sun exposure among many factors.

    nice lakers from the weekend

    Got out for a day on the weekend to smack some lakers. Slow day overall, but managed a few nice ones. Every fish caught on the vibrato this time.

    Jan 10 Lakers and Whities

    Definitely not on lock. It is constantly changing. I moved to Innisfil from Mississauga 23 years ago and have been fishing it ever since. I saw the lake change with the zebra mussels, I saw it change when smelt and herring all but disappeared, I saw it change when gobies were introduced, I saw it change when herring made a come back. The lake is in a constant state of change, and we as anglers need to adapt also to be successful. It's not that I have it on lock, I'll be the first to tell you that there are a hundred guys out there that can catch em better, or have more knowledge of it. I am just constantly experimenting and I think thats the best way to learn.

    Jan 10 Lakers and Whities

    Went out today for a few hours looking for morning whities and afternoon lakers. Got into a decent number of both, though it certainly wasnt fast and furious. Marked a ton of fish in the 50ft range, but the shallower fish seemed to be biting better. Not a hut to be seen where I was fishing and I love that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fmtme7wVXL4&lc=z22odji5emr5jpzmxacdp435h032yb3dqfil1ti4ahlw03c010c

    Falling through the ice

    Yesterday, while doing an ice report on Lake Couchiching, we came across some very unsafe ice and decided to try and show what to do if you fall through. Always be prepared and have safety equipment in the early season. I try to do this every couple of years in a controlled setting. It makes me comfortable knowing that I know how to escape properly if it were ever to happen accidentally. Ice picks are the single most important piece of equipment I have with me, other than a float suit. Always have a friend and always have some rope, especially early on.

    My son's first fish

    The other day, I skipped the storms and when it cleared up in the afternoon, I launched the boat for a couple of hours with my son Henry. He turns 3 in July and has never been on the boat. I more or less just wanted to take him for a ride but when we started marking good numbers of fish, we dropped down and got into one. He helped daddy reel it in and had a blast. Fun for me, fun for him! It was awesome hearing him tell mommy what happened in his broken english lol

    Weekend Rainbows and Big Perch

    Finally got back on the water for the first time in a month. On Saturday I hit a Lake O trib for some rainbows on opener. Did alright. Tangled with a whole bunch but only managed to land 4 and a bonus little brown. Sunday I launched the boat on Simcoe in search of some jumbos and got into a good school pretty quickly. Landed well over a hundred fish and got some real brutes. A weedline in 8-10 feet of water held the fish and a small finesse minnow on bottom got the bites.

    2017 Ice Fishing Highlights

    Thanks man. I'm not expert on it and certainly still learning. I try to experiment with something new every time, only way to learn. Same with fishing!

    Here's a fun highlight video I put together from this season, I hope you enjoy. The whitefish were rocking all season, but the lakers didnt show up for me until the latter half. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGCr3uu4thU

    Saving money on your groceries

    It's called the "scanning code of practice" If you dont have the "Flipp" app on your phone, you should. Best way to price match items from all over. We save so much money on our trips.
