  1. Hey Guys, thanks for a great written report and pictures that have me drooling. NW Ontario is special to me as I feel more at home up there than any place I've ever been. In 1983, I started flying in for the walleye opener and the streak wasn't broken until 2020. Annual trips were 2 weeks to 6 weeks. Thanks for sharing your experience.
  2. Great to be hearing from you Roy. Thanks for posting.
  3. Printing the card works for me. 1 in my tackle bag. 1 in glove box of truck. 1 in my billfold.
  4. Still fishing NW Ontario 16 - 23 days a year, every year. Still catching my share of nice pike, but have shut down on taking photos. They are unhooked while in my huge Frabil net, net is lowered and pike smiles as she swims slowly away. No out of water pictures, but a couple of short movies of the release, using polarized lens as fish swims. Fortunately I haven't aged a bit. God and medical professionals are punishing me by having me live too long.
  5. JP will put you on fish and keep you entertained. Take lots of extra food.
  6. What is your cost (Canadian Currency) for a 20 HP, electric start, 4 cycle, Mercury? About warranty, Tohatsu manufactures a great share of all outboard motors. Several years ago I looked into purchasing a new Honda Odyssey in Canada. Seems the only way was to have a Canadian friend make the buy, keep it 6 months and turn over to me. Would have paid both Canada tax and U.S. tax. Wouldn't have been worth the effort.
  7. FYI: You can order a Tohatsu from a U.S. dealer, have it delivered to General Delivery near border, no tax, free shipping. Work out the sales tax in Canada and own a great outboard motor at a very competitive price. Or buy a Mercury 30HP and under that's the same thing, but higher price. Paid for mine with check, rather than cc and got a 2% discount.
  8. Take your used filter for comparison, and a cross reference chart to your Mercury dealer. Tohatsu manufactures 20 hp mercury 4 cycle. I get my 20 hp Tohatsu oil filters off the Walmart shelf.
  9. Any right hand fishermen cast bait caster left handed and reel right handed? I do about half the time. Should have said both hands with left hand on top, left hand on reel.
  10. Good to hear from you Roy. Having you active on the forum will make life better.
  11. Here's what works for this 83 year old. Don't do anything for me that I can do for myself. I drove, solo, to Red Lake, Ontario for a float plane ride, spent Thanksgiving 2017 in camp with friends at my favorite fishing lake and fished for a week. Couldn't have done that if I'd allowed others to spoil me. Elderly folks sometimes need tough love.
  12. Best way to be put onto boating huge pike begins when a fishermen convinces others that he appreciates the resource and takes great care in catching, handling and releasing all fish.
  13. Being born in Canada or the United States gives us a great chance at enjoying a good life. We have a lot to be thankful for.
  14. I'm spending Thanksgiving with the Geary family on Little Vermilion Lake. This is my 5th Thanksgiving in camp. October trips make winter go faster for me. The Geary family, 3 moose hunters and I (only fisherman on the water) will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
