  1. Grand River Bass Derby Canceled: http://www.grandriverbassderby.ca/
  2. Address of the store for the Rods is in the OP it's rod only, not a combo, so If you need a reel to go with it, I visited the Highland Hills location yesterday (875 Highland Rd W, Kitchener, ON N2N 2Y2) to see if they had any Fraser Farm Meatballs & Gravy that I saw there in the past (sadly I never saw any) & saw they had Zebco 202 Spincast Reels there for $4:
  3. Left them all there, don't need another rod at the moment, but I took pics & thought I'd post as I found it interesting that they had a brand name rod available there.
  4. Downtown Kitchener Location: 61 King St E, Kitchener, ON N2G2K4 upload image
  5. I know Fish'n Canada started back in 1986 (so 34 years ago), Started with Reno & Angelo, Pete never came on as a host alongside them till later, his first appearance (named appearance anyway, not sure if he could be seen in the background of other episodes) was Episode 10 of 13 in Season 1 (1986) I'm not sure how old Pete is, but assuming late teens/early 20's back then, he sure looks good for being in his 50's i'm assuming.
  6. Yep, Android only though, Apple wants him to buy a Apple PC to develop for iPhone & he can't afford that, at least that was the case 3 years ago :
  7. On the topic of Tagged Fish, they had Reno on the previous week & 1 thing they were talking about is how tracking showed just how far a fish can travel: For future reference, Angelo & Pete go live Tuesdays with a Q&A & on Fridays they have a guest with them & try to have a theme around it, streams start at noon eastern.
  8. I've been wanting one for a while now, looking lately & noticed prices of older models (Hero, Hero 2, Hero 3) are <=$100, Maybe Hero 4 if lucky (one local on Kijiji listed for $135 with extras)
  9. I'm 31 & if i'm not mistaken it's from Rocky & Bullwinkle.
  10. So I still have gift cards in my wallet, $20 from Canadian Tire & $50 from Walmart, 1 thing is was planing on getting at some point is get a telescopic rod to put in my backpack along with tackle & take the bus somewhere I can go fishing (Grand River through K-W most likely), I'm just looking for opinions, checking the Walmart & Canadian Tire sites, here's what I'm currently thinking: Rod: Zebco Ready Tackle Telescopic Spin Rod, $14.84 from Walmart, out of stock online & shows almost sold out at the local store I plan on going to : https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/zebco-ready-tackle-telescopic-spin-rod/6000095749318 Reel: Either a Shakespeare Durango 2235RB Spinning Reel for $10.97 from Walmart: https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/durango-2235rb-spinning-reel/6000016935292 or the Zebco Advanced Spinning Reel for $15.99 from Canadian Tire: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/zebco-advanced-spinning-reel-0785555p.html#srp I'd like to have a decision made before the June 29-July 7, 2019 family fishing week so I can try it out before spending the money on my licence for the year.
  11. Just checked gasbuddy.com and from what I could see the average currently here in K-W is ~$1.14/L with the Costco price being $1.09/L, that's not as bad as small town Newfoundland back in October, Was checking google street view today of the town my mom is from & back in October it was $1.34/L (134.3) there.
  12. Hmm interesting, must have been this year. Got my 1 year sport at the HH in Elmira last year after going to the CT there, CT don't do it but HH was on the way home so tried there & they done it, if my local CTs & now HH don't do it this year, there's only 1 place I know of to go (Natural Sports) & now that I live in the city I don't have to worry about getting a ride, I can just get the bus to get there (along with possible fishing spots to put it to use & make it worth it this year).
  13. Hopefully things turn out OK, for the people living there, businesses & the fishery/wildlife. I've been to the French (Alban/Noelville area) a few times with the family & loved it, we weren't able to make it there this year but hopefully once things improve for us we could maybe go next year or the year after.
  14. I'm subscribed to The Fish'n Canada Show on Youtube & last week they started uploading episodes from Season 1 back in 1986! Episode 1 Episode 2
  15. For transportation, my sister-in-law drives a 2006 GMC Envoy & my Uncle drives a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (4.0 I6 Selec-Trac), they are currently the only licensed drivers as my brother currently got a suspended licence for blowing 80 over, as for myself I plan on going for my M1 & getting a line of credit from the bank (if I'm able) to go towards a cheap, old, used scooter or motorcycle along with the safety course & some gear (using the Loan and Line of Credit Calculator on my banks website (CIBC, Everyone else is with TD except for my Uncle who's with RBC) If I get $1724 & pay monthly over 3 years it'd be $50 per month with a interest rate of 3.45% that they're offering until November 18th 2018, with that I plan on using $480-500 for the safety course, $250-274 for gear & the remaining $994-950 to buy something to ride & put it on the road with a planned max insurance cost of $100 per month (Expecting $75-100 depending on what I get & coverage) & $40-50 per month for gas to have a total monthly cost of $165-200 to be riding on the road) as for me & my mom finding a place to rent, given rental costs for a 2 bedroom in Kitchener-Waterloo (that I've found so far anyway) we might have to suck it up & go with everyone else, Apply for low income/subsidized housing or bite the bullet & pay more than what we're currently paying for rent ($800 per month, plus food & bills)
  16. We currently live together (my brother (works in metal decking, office for company is in Toronto) & his wife (my sister-in-law, works at McDonalds in Waterloo), their 2 kids (my nieces, currently going to school in Linwood), myself (unemployed, on OW), mom (unemployed, on ODSP) & uncle (moms brother, works with my brother doing metal decking)), She's looking for a house for all of us but mom is talking about moving out on our own cause she's tired of how we're treated (having to share a room in the basement, having to do all the housework ourselves, being blamed for bills being high because we're the only ones home all day while everyone else is at work & school, not having reliable transportation to go where we need to whenever (my sister-in-law is the one who sets up & brings mom to her doctors appointments, that she's lucky if she makes it or gets lab work she needs done before hand, nearest bus stop is like a 1.5-2 hour walk away so taking the bus is out of the question). for housing, there's a few options I found in the <$350k range for 5+ bedrooms (the $1800/month rent we pay (Split between me, mom & my uncle that each pay about $400 for a total of about $1200 of the rent while my brother & his wife pay the remaining $600+ most of the bills (we help out where we can, I pay $25 every month to go towards the TV, Internet & home phone package (that got put in my name)along with $100 to go towards a bill that needs to be paid) is for a 5 bedroom, my brother & his wife share a room, my nieces have their own room, my uncle got his own room & me & mom share a room)). Some 5+ Bedrooms for <$350k within a 1 hour drive (according to google maps) from my sister-in-laws work in Waterloo: 6 bed 2 bath for $179900 in Conn (north of Arthur, east of Mt Forrest): https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19436058/9639-WELLINGTON-ROAD-14-Conn-Ontario-N0G1N0 5 bed 2 bath for $270k in North Perth (Atwood, about 10 minutes from Listowel): https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19427809/134-KING-Street-North-Perth-Ontario-N0G1B0 3+2 bed 1 bath for $289900 in Brantford: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19529665/21-STRATHCONA-Avenue-Brantford-Ontario-N3S1T4 5 bed 2 bath for $299k in Ingersoll: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19525950/270-BELL-STREET-Ingersoll-Ontario-N5C2P3 5 bed 3 bath for $299900 in Hamilton: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19543211/11-GREENAWAY-Avenue-Hamilton-Ontario-L8L6C3 5 bed 2 bath for $309900 in Stratford: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19486645/97-CAMBRIA-Street-Stratford-Ontario-N5A1G8 5 bed 2 bath for $315k in Brantford: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19467448/129-Peel-Street-Brantford-Ontario-N3S5M6 4+1 bed 3 bath for $319k in Brantford: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19445880/129-ERIE-AVE-Brantford-Ontario-N3S2G3 3+2 bed 3 bath for $325k in Norwich: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19249397/99-LOSSING-DRIVE-Norwich-Twp-Ontario-N0J1P0 5 bed 2 bath for $334900 in Stratford: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19453810/170-ERIE-Street-Stratford-Ontario-N5A2M7 5 bed 2 bath for $338309 in Woodstock: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19200821/309-VANSITTART-AVENUE-Woodstock-Ontario-N4S6G4 7 bed 5 bath for $339999 in Hamilton: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19249740/222-WENTWORTH-Street-N-Hamilton-Ontario-L8L5V8 3+2 bed 2 bath for $349900 in Listowel: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19412658/625-RESERVE-Avenue-S-Listowel-Ontario-N4W2L3 3+2 bed 3 bath for $349900 in Waterloo: https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19475276/B---509-Lonelm-Court-Waterloo-Ontario-N2L5C9 4+1 bed 2 bath for $349900 in West Perth (description says Dublin, Address in Google maps says Mitchell): https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/19478077/185-ONTARIO-RD-West-Perth-Ontario-N0K1E0
  17. On topic, anyone know the average or low end market price for a 5+ bedroom house, preferably in Waterloo region (rural/country area preferred)? My sister-in-law came home from somewhere Saturday morning & found a eviction notice (Notice to Terminate a Tenancy at the End of Term) with the reason being late rent payments, rent gets paid but normally just up to like 3-5 days late due to getting paid at the end of the week (Friday). She have had enough with dealing with landlords so she's looking at renting to own a house, we currently pay $1800/month + Utilities on top of that(Hydro, Water, Gas, ETC.) for rent & would prefer to spend a little less than that. We have until July 31st to move, I think she's looking at like $340k for a house but if a down payment is required I'm not sure if we could save 17k in time for a 5% down payment on a $340k house & a $1800-3600 down payment would only allow us to get a $36-72k house.
  18. we had a Electric Tank-less heater here with a electric tank backup, it wasn't very good (Granted it was a old unit), the Landlord ended up swapping to a Natural Gas tank, much better! As a Bonus, we don't pay as much for hydro now.
  19. I Think Power went out around 5-5:30ish , Came back on about 9:20-930ish PM so was out for about 4-4.5 hours
  20. Curious also, Licence-free family fishing is this weekend so I was thinking about possibly trying to talk the family into going there on Saturday during the Annual Ice Fishing Derby (Weather/Ice Conditions Permitting). It's been a Long Long Time Since I went ice Fishing (Sometime around 1999-2000 I guess, when I was about 10-11 Years Old), We Have no Gear for ice Fishing though I got a $20 Canadian Tire Gift Card for Christmas that I could use to get a Cheap Ice Fishing Rod/Reel Combo unless a normal Kids/Youth Rod would be OK, we might have 1 or 2 of those around that my Nieces could use if they decide to give it a try instead of skating. https://conservationhamilton.ca/valens-lake/ http://www.ontariofamilyfishing.com/events/anuual-ice-fishing-derby/
