  1. Hi there. I'm looking for recommendations for a Salmon Charter in Lake Ontario. Preferreably, I would like to launch out of the Scarborough Bluffs. I know there are many to choose from on google, but i'm hoping to hear from anyone who's had a good personal experience. Thanks!
  2. A few weeks ago I was offloading gear at the dock and two guys pulled up in a Mazda CX-5 with a small fishing boat on top of the vehicle. It was for sure not a canoe or any of the typical boats I have seen on a vehicle. I have no idea what size of motor they had on it but i was curious what type of fishing boat this may be, and what options exist for boats that can be transported on top of a vehicle. Wish i took a pic. Appreciate any advice.
  3. Hey all. I just got back from my trip and wanted to thank you all for the suggestions. This year, the bass were smaller than normal....the biggest i hooked in to was about 3lbs. I tried chatterbaits (not hits), chatterbait with a shrimp as the trailer (I saw a guy get a big smallie last weekend at simcoe using an uncooked pink shrimp....no hits), larger topwater frog in the pads (decent amount of hits but hooking in to them was another story). I had the most luck on orange\copper senko's. My buddy got another 6lb'er on the opener and showed me a pic. I think it's time for new friends. lol.
  4. Which one? They have a few digital scales including the tournament series touchless scale. It's pretty pricey...around $80.
  5. Any recommendations for a new scale? I have a basic South bend one in my bag with a tape measure. I'm thinking about upgrading it to a digital one but not sure which one to go with. I see the cheap Dr Meter one's on Amazon right up to the Rapala Touchless tournament scale (which is probably overkill for me). Appreciate any recommendations.
  6. Just looked up the River 2 Sea s-waver. Looks pretty cool....and big! Where can you buy these in Ontario? I don't see anywhere online and they are out of stock at Bass Pro.
  7. Great advice, so find the structure and use large baits. The lake is quite small and the water is deep and dark so I can only locate the pads\weeds (where I have gotten all my fish) and the dock across the lake. I'll give it a shot at the end of the month and post pics....this includes any 1lber's which I hold up right against the camera lens and tell you guys it's 5lb's. lol. Appreciate all of the advice!
  8. Hi all. I have a friend with a cottage on a private lake just north of Bancroft. It's a small lake full of largemouth and every year he sends out a pic of his big catch which looks to be around 7lbs. I only get up there once a year and have good success on senko's and scum frog's in the morning, however these have been more in the 3-4lb range. I'm hoping to target one of the trophy size fish, so my question is.....what lure and technique do you suggest for that big bass? I went to Cabela's and the staff suggested using a larger topwater frog like a Lunkerhunt. After reading a few articles online I see suggestions for larger swimbaits, jig and trailer combo's but I really have no idea else to try. My time is limited out there, so I won't have time to experiment with everything. My buddy caught his on mostly different lures each time.
  9. No one? Lol. Maybe i should have asked about Bronte Creek.
  10. I live in Mississauga and often drive past 16 mile creek as it crosses Britannia (near Terra Garden Center) or on Lower Baseline\Trafalgar. I only fish bigger lakes but i always wonder what species are available aside from Salmon and Trout and where fishing is allowed along the river in Milton and Oakville. I don't see any signs posted in these areas mentioned above. Appreciate any guidance. Thanks!
  11. Hi all. I've been looking for my first fishfinder and there are a lot of options out there. I think a basic unit like the garmin striker 4 is cheap and a good value including the gps, ability to mark waypoints. However, the sales guy mentioned that I would get a lot more value out of a Humminbird Helix 5 with built in maps, down imaging, etc. Ofcourse it's a few hundred bucks more. I don't have my own boat now so that I thought the portability of the striker 4 would be great, but appreciate any advice on what I should ask myself to determine if i should make the extra investment for a better unit. Appreciate any advice.
  12. So now that there fishing from the causeway is no longer allowed, are there any public access areas for the general public? It's too bad people had to abuse their privilege by leaving all their garbage behind. Is Bridgenorth sports and marine still open for business, their site is no longer up.
  13. Awesome suggestions, thanks so much guys. I have done quite a bit of google searching but it's always better to get some recommendations rather than relying on pictures and descriptions from the resorts website.
  14. sorry, i should have added that a pontoon boat would be ideal!
  15. Hi all. Need some advice. I've been a bass fisherman my whole life and the last time i've kept any fish was over ten years ago. This winter my 8 year old son has repeatedly asked me to take him fishing this summer and asked if we could stay overnight and cook the fish. These are his only requirements. I'm looking forward to it but i need some advice or suggestions with a boat rental, and a cottage\resort that's kid friendly. Anyone do a similar trip in recent years. I'm located in the GTA and willing to travel for about 2hrs. Since, I'm asking for advice, i'll also share some. I took my kids to island lake conservation area last summer, loaded their lines with worms and bobbers, and the sunfish didn't disappoint. Great place for the kids! The small piers provided a safety barrier for the kids and also gave them a better vantage point to keep an eye on their lines. Thanks
