Almost a Guide

Almost a Guide (5/10)



  1. I would say that yes you need it. And for peace of mind I would get some liability only insurance on it, for the "just in case" purposes. On my old 14' tinner I paid $120/year for $300,000 liability.
  2. All depends on what you're throwing. Poppers 6'8" spinning rod, fast tip, med action with 8lb braid Walk the dog (spooks) 6'8"-7' casting rod med Hvy with a fast tip. 10-15lb braid over weeds. Open water 10-12lb floro Frogs 7'5"-8' Hvy broom stick with a softer tip. 65-80lb braid. I prefer gloomis GL2 and the bass technique series. The new Shimano crucials and cumaras are very nice aswell
  3. If you wait until the open house at Pete's you'll be able I grab a rod at a great price. Or you can go to Grimsby tackle during their spring sale. 30% off of quantum rods 10% off all other rods I would look at the st. croix triumph/Abu veritas (both 90-100 bucks) A little more for a mojo bass Shimano sellus 70 bucks and they are two piece I would stick with something 6'6"-7' long MH with a X-fast tip You can throw basically any lure you want with that rod. MH gives you a bit more back bone for toothy critters and the X-fast tip adds some sensitivity to your rods to allow you to feel softer bites.
  4. This would be my setup for multi species lake both largies and smallies. Typical of my arsenal for any tournament. 1) spinning 7'6" med fast tubes 2) spinning 7' med ex fast drop shot 3) casting 7' med/Hvy fast spinnerbaits 4) spinning 7' med ex fast for worms shakey head and weightless 5) casting 7'6" med Hvy parabolic crankbaits 6) casting 7'3" Hvy fast flipping/frogs
  5. This is the second year that this same bird has come back to this area near St. Catharines. Accept this year it brought a companion. To have a mating pair so close to home is amazing. Here are some pics courtesy of my GF
  6. Generator is full Fridge is stocked Freezer is stocked Enough fuel for 5-6 days I'm ready Bring it My guess is that it stays rain with little to no freezing
  7. There is 5 solid inches of black ice from the reports I read this afternoon
  8. I use mechanics gloves with a pair of Laytex free rubber gloves underneath. This is good until mid December After than I usle mitts I have not found a good pair of waterproof gloves I always wear the rubber gloves underneath. Best way to stay dry that I have found
  9. HTHM is 100% correct Queenston is the only launch U have to be a member of the yaught Club in NOTL to launch there It's not that far of a run I do it regularly in my 14 footer Takes me 15 mins max
  10. I don't see on the Navico website anywhere that shows a Gold+ How current and up to date are these chips?? And I'm talkin about a HD/3D chip
  11. Good luck finding any chip that has detailed mapping for simcoe They don't exist
  12. Weedeges are your best bet 7-10 ft Dropshot Senkos And crank baits Tons of fish there keep moving around the Weedeges and ull find a concentration of them for sure.
  13. Take a read... http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/2013/08/28/second-grass-carp-caught-near-dunnville-dam
