  1. Drooling... I can look at camping pics all day. Can't wait until 4 today!
  2. I thought Marine Mart was pretty good but not sure they have what you are looking for. They are setup online and also a store where Le Barons used to be in Mississauga.
  3. Had the Dueller and also Michelin LTX's on my highlander. My vote goes to Michelin!
  4. We just switched to Virgin Internet last month.. they had an offer $30/m for 50mbps unlimited. Pretty good deal, guess they are trying to woo some new clients. Cut the cable bill years back and never looked back. With a digital antenna and streaming I get by. The only thing that is annoying the amount of mouse clicks it takes to find a good game stream sometimes. I'm not a bell fan. My grandmother had a land line through Bell when she was alive. I used to call her daily. One day her phone was dead, I was living in a different city at the time. I called Bell for some help, after a serious run around through out of country call centers and zero compassion, I finally got someone on the phone to explain she hadn't paid her bill in months. I offered to pay it right there, and that was a hassle. Then I get.. we will reconnect within 48hrs. I explained she was 89 years old, lives alone with a condition, with no phone and needs to be able to call for help. No one I talked to 'managers' or 'supervisors' or anyone gave a S#@!$. Got hung up on a few times at the same call center. After hours of the worst people and support ever I finally got someone to speed up the reconnection. I told myself I would never ever consider Bell again. Stuck with Rogers who was more competitive generally anyways and I found had much better support. Yeah I know Virgin is owned by Bell which irks me. Still have a good distaste for Bell after bad experiences. But $30 month couldn't pass up.
  5. A legit 50 pound muskie would be at the very top of my list. But I should probably move on from that dream and aim for 40lb lol. I would love to be able to average a fish a day on gbay over the course of a season at some point. I remember hearing about skamania in gbay tribs back in the day. I wonder if there are a few still kicking around. Think they were stocked back then somewhere.
  6. Wow. Seriously messed up. I really hope these guys get what they deserve.
  7. I've always wondered when adding stabil to your tank, how does it get mixed in with all the gas if you are not premixing? If I'm filling up 70 liters of fuel, I usually add a bit of stabil beginning, middle and end of fill up. Run the boat and hope it all mixes in. But I never really know if the stabil really mixes well with all the fuel. Anyone know? I also store my boat in barn. Mothballs work well for me. I've had a few mouse poops in spring but like 5-10 total at one entry point. Seems like the mice come in and leave. I load my boat with moth balls in all hatches and spaces.
  8. Does anyone know for sure if seafoam can stabilize to the extent of stabil? If so seems like stabil is inferior and Seafoam is the better product to use. I sometimes run both, seafoam a couple times a year to clean crap out and stabil when I need to stabilize. But I really have no idea what I'm doing lol, in terms of the facts on what actually works the best. Don't like the sounds of what Fisherman says above...
  9. His budget would be around 30k give or take on the high end but would prefer to be around 20. He's pretty open to look at all options. He's not fixed on any brand. HP would depend on the boat but nothing underpowered. Hope that helps.
  10. Hey guys, I have a friend shopping around for a boat. He's looking for a 17-18ft with a full windshield or dual console. He's hoping for wide beam, rear flip up seats, bimini, cover, 80lb tm, swing tongue trailer, etc. He's not dead set on dual console but would be preferred. He's hoping for something kind of newer, nothing too dated. If anyone is selling or knows of something out there, please pm me and I can link the seller with my friend if the boat looks like it may fit. Thanks
  11. Ya that's unfortunate. Hopefully on the episode they talk about proper catch and release. Now that I watch it again he does get slimed pretty good, could of been a bit smoother for the fish. Bill for sure there's some giants but don't think any one is breaking 60. Mid and maybe the odd higher 50s. I know it's a hell of place to try to do well on. Would love to hear of a 60.
  12. They used to sell the V1 footpedals at sail, not sure if they still have them. Ebay might I have a v1 PD and those pedals suck. I keep a half working extra in the boat as backup (this one has barely any power to turn right). Most of the time something goes on the pedal, like ability to turn a direction or constant ON switch etc. But if the whole thing isn't working it may not be the pedal. Maybe try to find someone with that working pedal to troubleshoot. The pedals are fixable to some extent I think. I was able to fix my broken constant on switch as it was a plastic piece worn. But electronics you need to buy the parts. Rocky's in Orillia or Aikmans may be able to help, not sure how the stock is out there for those old pedal parts now a days.

    Krocs

    Funny post! Crocs are the best shoes ever invented IMO. My wife hates that I wear them everywhere lol. In my opinion all spring/summer casual footwear should be the same material! Nothing beats the breathability other than no shoes at all, the comfort and that you can run them under the sink for a quick clean and they dry in 5 mins. The first pair I had ($5 knockoffs) lasted me 10 years -I thought they'd never die and used to preach to my city counterparts that they're the shoes that last 100 years and everyone should wear them, who cares what they look like - until I wore through the big toe area on the sole from putting 100000 miles on them. I like the softer plastic knockoffs more as I can control my TM speed easier through the shoe. Best shoes ever invented. I generally wear them from the first spring trip until mid fall, colder days just add merino socks. I really like moosebunks idea of neoprene socks for a rain shoe!
  14. If you know of anyone who's caught a 60 on gbay please share! They are just trying to generate some interest. They could of omitted world record talk though. You can't be mad at the fish hold. That's a real nice fish regardless. That fish must of felt great Lew!
  15. I used to own the cabelas suit below the guidewear - I think it was called dryplus. Not sure if they still offer it but I put it through some nasty fall days and it kept me dry for 5 years. Summer I like a lighter jacket as I'm not super concerned with staying 100% bone dry. Summer I use a cheap wetskins jacket from costco, light enough for summer and keeps you dry enough. Having a cheapo summer suit will extend life on the expensive suit.
