  1. Sounds perfect. I didn't know you could own just a property and have a well and septic system set up for RV use!! Is there hydro to the property as well? I also planning on retirement and looking for options other then sitting in a chair in Toronto!!
  2. Holy Crap!! At a weight of 1260 lbs that would sink my 20 foot Whaler!!
  3. We used to catch the American Eels out in the Belleville Area. Used to get them every summer most every time we went fishing. We stopped getting them over 40 years ago. Over the last four years though I've seen three caught and released in the same area. Looks like they may be coming back but you are still not allowed to keep them. Great eating from what I remember and fun to catch.
  4. Thanks for the recipe Smitty55. I will give that a try.
  5. I stated canning this year. I've got over 50 jars of salmon, smoked and plain. I canned some carrots but they are real squishy out of the jar. Did some beets and they are a little firmer than the carrots. Also canned some venison and it turned out great. Still trying to figure out how to eat the venison though. Right out of the jar is OK but I'd like to try and make some dairy free stroganoff. Very easy to can stuff as long as you follow the pressure and time guides.
  6. I launched my 14 foot tinny by tying it to the trailer as well. But one time the knot slipped loose and off the boat went! Floated right past the photographer on the dock. I asked why he didn't grab it and he just shrugged! Had to swim out to get it in late October! I beach this boat all the time and it does have a few scratches on the hull but it's a tin garbage can. For the glass boat I have a keel guard. Easy to install and takes a beating
  7. I have an open floor plan 14 foot deep and wide. It too was leaking from so many rivets it would sink in four days if I left it in the water. I removed the interior floors and everything and found most of the water was coming in from the bottom of the transom. I ended up replacing 150 rivets. I used the airplane rivets and a bucking block and it was actually very easy to do. Just very noisy. It took me about two weeks to do the whole job because it took awhile to find a place that sold the rivets. I say fix it.
  8. No need for this part it was something else
  9. Thanks for all the info and tips. The pain comes and goes but it's allot better now than it was the first six months. Like I posted originally the only limited movement is straight out to the side and can't lift anything. The stupid thing about all this is I had to wait nine months to see a Dr and he gives me crap for not having an MRI. I get the MRI, four months later, and he then tells me he's a knee guy and will refer me to a shoulder guy!! I will be getting a second opinion before I agree to anything that involves cutting me open. Thanks guys
  10. I tore my Supra spinatus February last year and they finally are telling me i need surgery. Has anyone had this repair done? How bad was the recovery period? Or has anyone needed this repair and not had it done and regret it? The only motion I can't do is reach out to my side and pick up anything. I don't do this motion usually and have been doing renos and fishing and hunting the past year with no issues. Any info would be great thanks. Sorry not really fishing related but I've seen posts where others mention body failings that prevent them from fishing anymore.
  11. Driving across Canada once way back. Couldn't sleep in the truck one more night so took a break and stayed in a hotel east of Thunder Bay. Room was above a bar that went nuts till about two am. After the bar closed the freight trains would blast their horns every time they passed the hotel about ten feet away! No level crossings any where near there. I guess they were just having fun. Ended up leaving at 6 am with no sleep and sleeping in the truck down the road!
  12. 2004 Ski Doo legend 380 fan. Two up seat. Great shape. Only 3779 km. Only used for ice fishing. Studded track and tunnel protectors. Has a hitch on it. Replaced allot of parts over the years. Heated hand grips and thumb warmer. Pull and electric start with reverse. Never failed to start and never left me stranded. Comes with single tilt and load trailer with Super Clamps front and back and traction mat and ski guides. Rewired trailer last month. All in all a great ice fishing sled. 4500.00 or best offer. Mail me at [email protected] for pics. Located in East York, Toronto.
  13. I guess I posted that wrong. All pickerel were too small too keep.
  14. How was your Nippissing trip? We were up there Family day to the Thursday. Lots of jumbos and about 15 pickerel all in the slot. This year we also got four white fish. My personal best whitefish this year it weighed in at 8.5 lbs. The snow on Wednesday was a real treat to try and drive out on in the four by four truck. Hope you guys had as good a time as we did.
  15. Further up Lakeshore is Sunset park off of Sunset Blvd. You can drive right onto the lake and there is parking right on the ice there as well. We head out 2.5 to 5 km and fish 24 fow. Billy Bobs for minnows. Good luck
  16. I looked this up but couldn't find the exact one. Any idea how much it weighs? The ones I found say 80 lbs. Can this be right? THanks
  17. 2004 Honda CRV. Every thing that could go wrong did. I will never buy a Honda again because of this Crappy Recreation Vehicle.
  18. I've sewn up my torn hut using braided fishing line. A few loops at the ends of the cut and then sew up the middle. For good measure I put tuck tape over it inside and out and it's never been a problem since.
  19. So I still don't know where to go find these boots near the GTA. Angling outfitters and Royal are my only options?
  20. I had to dumbp200 liters of water contaminated fuel. They tried to keep my 10 gas cans and I said no way. I went to a restaurant and grabbed a bunch of empty fry oil containers. Dropped those off and no issues.
  21. Reeds Outdoors. Off of Sunrise Park right on Lakeshore drive. Great service and the double huts are awesom. If you have enough guys you get two huts. One for fishing and cooking and the other for sleeping. Always on the fish. Perch, pike, ling and a few pickeral.
  22. Part number of cable is usually stamped on the black plastic part or painted on the black sleeve.
  23. That is why I tell the wife if I don't catch it or hunt it we aren't eating it.
  24. Thanks for the tips and well wishes. I only picked the number 10 000 cus I know what insurance companies are like. It was a large tackle box with several hundred lures and body baits in it along with all the terminal tackle and what not. He'd been collecting all the tackle for a long time. This was the only item the brothers and I wanted to share to remember him by and it's gone. I will contact the insurance company and try to 'renegotiate'. Thanks again s g
  25. All valid points and I've considered that some of the tackle was quite old. I told them that and they said come up with a price list to replace all the tackle. That is why i'm asking what an average cost of a large tackle box with three trays on either side would be.
