  1. I've been out a couple times from Maitland where they were on fire last year and it's been stupid quiet. We have hit up lake Ontario more often and with success this year. Last year we couldn't even get our riggers and dipsys set before we caught one or 2, they must have moved around!
  2. That's funny, I have a 50hp rating for Canada and 55 for the US. And yeah I'm typically 20 with a passenger, I've been up to 24 but that was an empty boat just emergency gear and myself lol. Still not fast enough I'd like to get 30-35 as some areas of quinte I fish there's opportunity to go far depending on what I'm targeting.
  3. I'm surprised with the amount of battery you have in there running a 25. I am desperately wanting to swap the 25 for a 50 because I can reach max of 20mph in it, less with the trolling motor and battery in the front. In the middle of upgrading to a larger house so don't feel like shelling out the cash for one at the moment when I know I'll have a bunch of moving expenses lol
  4. I have a similar boat (06) with a similar problem but I don't take on much water that I'm aware of. Had it sitting for a week up at the cottage and every day was dry. But the lean is very prominent. Gas and battery go on the opposite side.
  5. Tucker's marketplace is now closing all locations permanently due to covid
  6. I'm in a similar situation as OP here... Looking to re power and have found tohatsu to be very well priced. I inquired about a 50 hp console model 4 stroke and pricing was $6071 brand new. I was about to pull the trigger on a 2013 I came across on Kijiji but the guy wanted $4500 for it, (probably would have haggled him down) and he hadn't had it running since 2016 when he purchased it from someone else. For $1500~ I don't want someone else's issues if there are any, plus there's a brand new warranty.
  7. My sister's boyfriends family has a cottage nearby and they have a certain type of trout that isn't found in many places apparently known as "Haliburton Gold" first time I ever heard of it but it's a heritage species. Kinda neat.
  8. I was unaware of that but yea we got a few in the 15-18" size
  9. We ended up catching a few muskie, bass and perch we also fished boshkung for some walleye and did ok. Ended up buying a cottage with my family on Brady not long after lol we enjoyed the lake and area so we now have a family cottage. First trip up with the in-laws my father in law took the paddle boat out and caught 2 30"~ muskie within 30 minutes of being there haha
  10. Got a 25hp Merc 4 stroke, looking to repower into a 50hp 4 stroke, ideally 2006+
  11. They definitely do cater to the demographic of the area, if you need a few bottles they have free shipping in February online if you spend $200
  12. It wouldn't surprise me, and honestly it was about 23 games overdue. He should have gotten the boot at the end of the playoffs last season, the team as we can see is a Ferrari so to speak, and Babcock would drive it like an E bike. Also if anyone is interested in the coaching situation with regards to guys who shouldn't be coaching due to things they should never have been able to do, give Daniel Carcillo a follow on twitter, he's been posting stories he's been given from Junior players etc that generally revolve around abuse from coaches indifferent leagues around Canada
  13. This Mike Babcock saga grows every day... Supposedly played mind games with his players to get them to play better. I also have to wonder about the Spezza ordeal, he deserves to be in the lineup without a doubt and Babcock scratching him in front of all his family and friends (supposedly bought 30+ tickets) is low. https://theleafsnation.com/2019/11/24/tulloch-why-the-leafs-needed-to-fire-mike-babcock/
  14. Damn that's wicked! Nice catches for sure
  15. I'm sure a few enterprising anglers wouldn't mind putting in some elbow grease, and fix it up... But I doubt that's allowed lol. I noticed a few boards where it ramps down where it meets the right side wall near the corner were a bit shredded on the ends, they looked a bit chintzy however, looked more like fence boards than deck boards haha
  16. Only managed 6 yesterday, the bite was not as consistent as it was last weekend in 70'-80' but they were still there. Port Maitland launch was also out of commission, looks like the dock detached. It was being held in the ramp and had caution tape surrounding both ends.
  17. Worm harnesses on long leads seems to be doing it. The bite is so soft though we are regularly setting timers at 7 minutes to check our downriggers as they won't even pull it from the clip and usually we have one on lol
  18. Those catch rates they are stating are pretty low IMO, I went out last week and limited in an hour for 2 guys (12); all in the 2 pound range, we launched around 6:15, were rigged up and fishing by 6;45 and pulled our last fish at 7:55. Done that a few times this season, have been eating a lot more fish than usual ? planning on heading out again Sunday if the winds are cooperative.
  19. This AAV won't hurt so bad once Seattle buys in and the US broadcasting deal is renegotiated. The cap is expected to rise above 95 million in a few years, which is just in time to re sign Rielly and potentially Freddy if they're going to be adding him for a few more years at that point might not be necessary
  20. Gardiner wasn't on our books already, Cody Ceci took his spot. We essentially traded Nikita zaitsev with his remaining contract of 4+ seasons for a single one of Cody Ceci.
  21. I have an 06 legend xcite 16' and it's a nice entry-level boat. My hull is made by StarCraft it is the welded .100 gauge. I only spent $4500 on it, used obviously and have put some coin into outfitting it to suit my fishing which is mostly smaller inland lakes If I were in the new market I would be looking at a Lund adventure, however I saw one at bay city marine in Hamilton and it was 36k for a 17' with a 115, don't recall if it was 2 or 4 stroke. There are also a bunch of nice Lund explorers on Kijiji at the moment for a lot less than he's looking to spend.

  23. He makes some good moves and then some that make you just scratch your head that's for sure. And for sure with Aho, that's not even competitive for his upside... Should have gotten Eichel money with the way RFA's are being paid these days... 10 mill per doesn't seem too crazy
