  1. long story short port stanely young like 8years old, learning to cast had one go wild but did not know. Felt a tug and set the hook like dad taught me. I faought that fish hard it felt like a big one.......turns out it was some poor bugger walking down the peir, got him right in the knee.....i'll never forget the car ride home. Dad just said nice hook set. lol true story
  2. Totally agree most are good guys. I've made honest mistakes, too many rod, did not read the old regs right. Fined me and believed me because I showed him in the regs the decrepence, but gave me all the tackle back so I did not have too stop fishing for the day. I had to chew the fine but I was in the wrong. If one fish is caugtht and photo/s are taken, prob no big deal, but to do multiple fish, you may be into trouble if you are handleing them poorly or taking too much time. St clair co have had no issues with pic of catch and release. yet again common sense. The co's can see you before you can see them and they take photo's of the infractions from a distance. I have seen them pic boats out of a crowd of 50 boats.
  3. Hey my buddy got a weekend pass and I am looking for a little help on where to go we both want to go somewhere new to us, I was thinking biscotasing, or tamagami or gogama. Would love to get on a decent spot with good numbers, but more importantly, would love to stay in a place close to the water, or by a decent fishing spot. We have sled and four wheelers, but I only want to use them to set up our equipment we want to be close enough to a place that we can crawl home. I have a funny feeling driving off the ice will be out of the question. P.S it the first time in years just the two of us have had no kids wives or any resposibilities. It will be like highschool again. Mabey Thanks for any help
  4. That is the reason I would take a guide they will show you where the fish are, day one and the rest will be history, those fish have so much space. How has the locks been in lindsay, live there for two years and just loved the walleye out of there. Do they still produce good numbers.
  5. esnagami lodge out of nakina, eric lund, been there done it and loves it don't know about the front door pick up, anything is possible. Awesomw eye numbers
  6. casting, been downrigging for 7 years lost my touch and feel, worst of all my daughter broke my 18 year old quantam tour edition rod, love my kid but caught alot of fish casting with that rod, loved that rod. Got to start all over with a new stick. Wish me luck. Good luck and I prefer mr meanies over all others in the fast moving rivers.
  7. . If it is bay of quinte call jeff or paul from quinte fishing team, there great guys and guides, they will put you on to fish. I strongly suggest getting a guide for a day. You will not regret it with these two services i told you about. If you can't get in touch with them pm me and I'll get their numbers for you.
  8. Hey my suggestion to you is too not go with the great expectations of catching fish. We do a fall musky trip 14 guys and I would not change it for the world we book it after the prime season, have trophies and put the focus on the food and beverages and poker. The fish is just a bonus and no expectations leave little to no room for dissapointment. But if it is all about the fish because I understand, and have been ther and time is hard to get away. I know a guide on erie that will put more spring walleye in your boat than you can imagine. Go with him day one and then use what he taught you and you will be fine for fish I promise. His name is Jerermy Brooks and he runs Trophy Takers Charters. He works his regular job with my brother and just gave me pointers over the phone and I rarely actually never get skunked on erie. hope this helps. He can tell you where to rent cabins.
  9. Hey mike I was on simcoe a few years back and I watched a whack of cars go through. It was one big crack and then just slow motion, same thing 10 to 12 inches, people dont think, if they were driving a big rig they may worry but nobody adds up the weight of the combined vehicles. I have a hard time parking on the ice because I am ususally one of the first on and last off, it is the dumb my mom hates me that park around me when gone that scares me. The best part was I was with a group of three and I had my limit, and my buddies had just a few to go so headed back early to get the vehicle warmed up (we parked on land) but I took the other 2 guys fish with me. At the time the cars went through A CO was just asking me about my day and licence. What great timing, or I could have been in a tight spot with some explaining to do. He said have a nice day and made a call. Hey to all try to park a little out of the way from the weekend citidiots,to avoid this. the tow truck was getting 800 cash. he had a great day.
  10. big chief good but crappy winter and summer. 15 deg 8 hours Centrino good but need to open door too cool so burner comes on to produce smoke in summer. also hold moisure in so I drain the tray. 145 for 8 hours I run them both if I had to pick one it would be the centrino. I have only ever smoked fish. Done it for years.
  11. awwwwww! I think i might be that guy. no wonder no one wants to fish with me. lmao
  12. Right on that sound like a great trip, there in nothing better than realizing that you for the first time in your fishing life you hoped to be out fished. who thought being a dad could be so enjoyable. Nice to hear.
  13. Get ready for some record breaking salmon to come from our lakes in the next year to five, based on the warmer temps all around of the great lakes, smolts in the rivers will be larger based on temp units and the fish in the lake shold keep feeding more agrresively and watch for an over lap of musky and pike spawning, pike generally spawn earlier, the warmer water temps may prompt the musky to spawn eariler and thus the pike fry won't have an advantage of size and eat the majority of musky fry. Good for musky stocks, and the best part is the water levels will not fluctuate dramatically so spawning fish wont spawn on locations that will be high and dry before the eggs hatch. Also spawning walleye will not have to deal with huge amounts of pollutants stored in the snow melt that attack walleye eggs every spring. I am an eternal optomist, lets just hope there is enough rain to get the rainbow up thos rivers this spring. The down fall is I fear the river boys have been hammering the good spawning bows and eyes this extended season. Great thread I will ponder this for a bit
  14. Blue fox #1 spinner silver blade blue bell, make sure you have a snapswivel, in the rivers late fall till ice up, you will be fine, very your speed, and the clearer the water the smaller the spinner. no bigger than 6lb test. loosen the drag the bows hit like a freight train.
  15. spinning reel.........I thought you meant bait caster, just run hot tap water over the line for a minute. That will cure what ails ya.
  16. Awesome, I can help, rod tip up and wax about four feet of your braided line from the lure back, this floats the line, snap the tip like your playing the drums. The bait caster is alittle tougher, but loosen the magnets so the lure just starts to fall with the bail open, start at a slower fall and as you get better, you can let it fall faster allowing to cast your bait further. Another trick is to make a cast the pull out 10 to 15 extra feet of line, then put a peice of tape across the line on the reel, then reel in and cast normally. this will prevent the birdsnest from getting to deep in your reel. I got good at a bait caster years ago using this stuff. However I stopped using my bait caster reel, because I broke my rod, a couple years ago. Just purchased a new rod to get back into it, and I guarentee that I will have to learn all over again. No there is nothing I can`t do just things that I need to practice. Wouldnt it suck if you caught fish evertime or made that perfect cast. I don`t think I would enjoy fishing as much as I do. Funny though I find that this forum I one of the greatest tools I have ever used. Just think how good a fisherman I could have been If I only found this forum when I was younger and had the time. cheers and good luck
  17. My buddies pup chewed through hid showdown sounder, the day after he used it for the first time, I fixed as best as possible, but I don't think the fix will be perminate. New ones are around 175 so he was told. Does any one have an extra or spare or know where to go to get a cheaper replacement. His g freind busted up his sle the same day. first trip of the year for the sled as well he did not even get to ride it. Thanks if you can help a brother out. I think he need s break.
  18. it is how it spelled spouph an at ic You shod get in touch with nip fisher, he seem to have that lake nailed down. spouf an a tic
  19. Ya your absolutly right, but she is a ratheer distracted young girl. She has been fishing with me since she was in the crib, litterally out on the lake downrigging 7 hour days. But this is the very first time she has taken iniative. If you take a look at my profile pic she is holding a 10 lb walleye in which she placed 3rd in the derby last year, she not afraid of fish but I was wondering if this day would ever come. That is where she did it entirely by herself. Awesome
  20. I totally agree with you on this. Drilled over 20 holes through 24 plus inches, in no time not winded, great auger. Yesterday, today did not even think about drilling holes as an issue, with my old auger it was always a thought. Today I even went over and drilled the hole for a group beside me that was havin a hard time with their auger. I love it when things just work. I also buggered up my dewalt drill when my kid dropped it into the slush, still works but down a battery and had to oil the chuck. Those drill werent designt to play with slush.
  21. Well after all the big talk of walleye spoons and pike fishing, turns out I ended up laker fishing at a buddies shak. So I decided to take my 8 year old daughter out on the ice. We arrive late, well because she is 8 and gloves and tuks and arguments about snowpants to an 8 year old are more important than getting out the door. Turns out we found them all, ya guessed it right where she left it. After a 30 min drive to the lake and five too many versus of the same damned Beiber song we finally arrive. We set up and get the camera down, bang fish under the hut. So I get my daughter jig and bait to the laker she wiggles it a bit, Bang he hits, she fights it halfway up stars reeling and stop halfway to talk, about I can't remember what boom he's off. So long into the lecture of what she did wrong she smille sings a bit more of beiber. could care less. So the rest of us get a turn, and a couple of fish later, her bouncing around and singing is just annoying but you keep on trucking because I remember the way I was when I was younger. Pay back. So our 2 hour limit is up and have to get back for our company so I leave here with a buddy to go get the jeep, to return 10 minutes later to see her with the largest fish on the Ice of the day, and another sitting beside it. So I ask who caugth those she simply smiled and said me. I askes buddy did you help, He said no I was in the hut. Turns out all she needed was to be left alone. On the drive home I asked her If she had fun fishing, she said yes. It was all I needed to here, For all the frustration and agrivation, of fishing with a energtic 8 yr old. Fun was all I needed to here, I think we will do it again tommorrow. I realized that all in all everthing included, I had fun too. It it was nice to head home to company with a limit and two smiles. great day
  22. I don't know what you were smoking when you came up with this Idea, but it sound crazy enough to work. Upside down spoon. What about the side hooks. flip em. I nam definately going after that this weekend. thanks for the Idea.
  23. The jigging rap is already my number 2 lure, caught alot of fish with that guy. But I upsize the middle hook and cut off the two end hooks and always han a minnow off of it. My confidence is not strong with out a minnow. You guys are helping. I pause for the strike, I assume you keep the jig rap in motion the whole time.
  24. I see your from woodstock.....I wonder If josilin has any in stock. I saw those spoons working on u tube, this is the second reason I wanted to try a differernt spoon. That was a pretty impressive video.
  25. It increases the level of excitement 10 fold. I rarely will go with out one. If your in for a real fun time get a camera. Because you dont fish much I would look at a used one. The camera is a real trip. You learn sooo much. If your fishing in the sunlight don't bother with a camera, and I would suggest you get a newr model, like the lawrance x67c. You can pick a used one up for around 200(400 new) I saw one for that price last year. Dont waste your money with an older model that does not pick up great detail.
