  1. Ahhhh hahaha good one chumbawumba loved that album all those lures designed by that famous Finnish lure maker Lipra Yadsloof
  2. So only 5 lures to take to a smallmouth lake you've never been on before 1. Bucktail jig 2. Ned rig/3-4" dark senko 3. 3" XRap 4. Any #4 Gold spinner 5. my new fav topwater Whopper Plopper (boy that's the worst lure name ever) runner up only if it's a deeper lake would be a slab jigging spoon
  3. I forgot to add, YES like most tackle junkies on here I bought a couple of the new ones, just not the Canadian Flag The are plastic and have a scale pattern/gill ridge molded into the body. I was impressed with the action and they did sweep way out right and left like the old ones do, but never really ran them for any length of time so no fish on them so far. I keep looking at those kits and will have to do that this year. I love my little 2" for lakers up north
  4. I saw some of the NEW Lymans at Canadian Tire in Burlington not too long ago. Just a surprise to see a few pegs there as that location has a bigger fishing section than normal. Can't recall the $ and all I can remember is they had the Canadian flag color The Lyman site also has a cool 6 blank hardware kit for those wanting to do their own color schemes. I think it was $59.99 and you get all the bodies and hardware to put together. Not sure if that was USD or CAD but seemed interesting based on what people are asking for the old ones
  5. Best $ I found last summer was Amazon under "Downrigger Weight" I grabbed 2 8lb from Extreme Max for around $45 each and with Amazon Prime it was next day delivery and free shipping
  6. Been a long time customer, I still miss hand picking things in a fly shop though. There's always that perfect package of fur or feathers. Calf tail is the worst for range of quality One lad at SAIL looked at me funny the other day when I asked for the entire hook to be pulled down for dark brown bucktail, found 1 real good one and a bunch of low grades
  7. All good, Took the unit back to the store with my bill and in 5 mins price was adjusted to the non Nav + unit. Now all I need is to figure out what mapping card to buy now.
  8. It does have the Humminbird basemap loaded which is all US lakes but no card in box or loaded in the slot. When I check lakes like Simcoe and Rice no depth charts on the helix 7 just blank screen where contour lines should be. Looks like a trip back to the store for a price adjustment or hopefully they have a 7 with the proper navionics labels on the box. All I have done so far is remove the head unit from the plastic and power it up dryland without transducer hooked up Their store price tag on the box says Helix 7 +nav
  9. Taking a stab that some one out there has their Humminbird Helix packaging or knows this. I have finally upgraded the units on the boat this fall and the Humminbird Helix 7 I purchased for the front deck was supposed to include the Navionics + map card. Can anyone confirm that this is an actual card packed in with the unit and if possible should the original packaging have the blue Navionics logo printed on the box as part of the features included. I think this is a mix up at store level and it appears I got the basic Helix 7 without any Navionics. GPS selection on the unit does not show any Navionics map in the set up options. I've called the store but waiting for a call back from their electronics guy who is off for a few days. Thanks
  10. Was in the one in Burlington, Yes all offshore looking products from clothing to work out gear Fishing and Hunting sections remind me of what old department stores like Sears and Target in the US would stock I did find 2 things - a very reasonably priced and comfortable fold up carp fishing chair that will double as my turkey chair and a pair of brush pants for $50. Wore them all week up in temagami bush whacking portage trails with chain saws and they held up quite well, lightweight and quick dry

  15. On board Minn Kota charging system for 24 volt. Religiously drain and recharge as best I can but have to admit don’t get out as much as I used to. pull batteries and keep indoors all winter off concrete. My dad told me this and will forever keep the faith. Two Canadian tire 27 705 cranking amps. These are now 4 years old and hooked up to winter battery tenders noco genius 2 battery chargers/desulfator. fingers crossed for season 5 and more
  16. The bottom looks like natural hair but the top two looks synthetic, reminds me of polar fur/ hair or some name similar. Still great stuff for streamers and walleye jigs
  17. Nice, where did you pick up that mepps glow spoons. Lost track of them and have several holes in my spoon tray for river mouth hardware. Also look for braid fishing line at Dollarama as they start to pull out there summer stuff. I found it in 15 and 20 lb 150m spools I bought a few spools last summer to check it out and it worked fine. I think it was $4 and grey colour.
  18. I have a Clam nanook as well as a single Frabill recon. Over the years have been able to fish in and around a multitude of other makes with buddies and the lightest and easiest I've ever come across was the Clam 5600. My buddy popped his on top a smitty and it pulled like a dream in all kinds of conditions even with a hand auger and gear strapped on. He used to fasten the clam on the smitty with bungee cords and then a couple gear bags and auger on top. I've been looking for one used for a few years but never really found one in good condition or close by. They get bought up fast. It's still around 70lbs in weight but it was way easy to handle than my nanook for 2 people and worth the extra room over a single to fish 2 lines
  19. Very similar set up here, 2 batteries up front, starter batter in back. 2001 -1750 Crestliner Fishhawk, 115HP 2 stroke Merc I ran a 17P Aluminum 3 blade prop and with pretty much exactly the same load got 37-38 MPH at just over 5000 rpm. switch up to a 19P Aluminum 3 blade prop when I need to get somewhere fast and can WOT hit 42-43, same load in the boat. Everyday runs are around 3800 RPM at 23-25 MPH on the 19P as I'm not in a rush anymore Borrowed a 19 SS 3 blade prop a few years ago and saw 2-3 extra MPH, thought I might have gotten more going to a 21 everything falls apart for performance, sweet spot for me is 19
  20. Best line up around me is Sail, can't say exactly what they had Although my last buys were the clone spoon from Bass pro - Cabelas Fishermen series The Cabelas ones certainly worked for me this year on Niagara area Lakers and spring time casting for steelhead. They have that exact color I really like the wonderbread and metallic colors, Purple-Blue was good
