  1. I sit in on weekly TIAO meetings: yes, the Northern outiftters/lodges/marinas and Indigienous tourism operations have taken a beating this year because upwards of 90% of their business is from south of the border. The structure of the early financial aid didn't work well for those businesses and they consequently had a tough time taking advantage of the boom in intra-provincial business that more southern cottage country experienced. Something will have to be done to help those folks out or we will lose 1000s of small, seasonal businesses.
  2. There isn't a limit on unknown species. If you can't ID, you shouldn't keep it.
  3. It's fine if you're on a bicycle: short walk.
  4. I have been fishing 20 lb PPro on spinning reels for 10 yrs with no issues.
  5. Pike and 'eyes have been spreading through that whole chain of lakes for the past 10 years. Some monster 'eyes are being caught through the ice on lakes that were long considered trout lakes in the winter.
  6. Haliburton. Some years opener calls for small, some years they are hitting the big stuff. My issue was lots of hits, not a lot hookups.
  7. Curious how folks did. We had 3 yaks on the water for a couple of days. Moved lots of fish, caught 5 or 6. Nothing over 40". Weed growth here is very slow, so fish seemed to be cruising off the edges. All the fish were caught on smaller lures, couldn't get much interest on larger presentations.
  8. Looking for a decent quality spinning rod, L or ML action. Needs to pack fairly small, so probably a 4 piece or telescoping. Lots of tackle to trade: high quality bass cranks and topwaters, musky inlines and glide baits, walleye cranks....
  9. It was definitely a quieter long weekend here in the Haliburton Highlands. Folks came up to their cottages, but nowhere near the amount of traffic as usual, especially given how nice the weather was. I am always amazed at how little fishing traffic there is up here on the opening day of 'eye season. Several very good 'eye lakes didn't have a boat on them.
  10. I would say that it's not as busy as a typical May long weekend. The village is certainly not as busy as usual for this time of year.
  11. Tournament fishing doesn't drive anything but more tournament fishing. It has absolutely nothing to do with why, or how I fish.
  12. Gimmicks. Direct pressure to stop bleeding, and proper wound management afterwards is what you need.
  13. I can tell you, from being out in all kinds of water conditons, that you have to be incredibly inattentive or just seriously lacking in skills to flip a modern fishing yak: especially one with a pedal drive like he was using. But, GoPros have a tendency to do that to people.
  14. Only thing worse than being a dough-head, is being a dough-head and putting it on Youtube: no cold water gear, no rod leashes, gear not secured to the boat. Doh!
