  5. In the past OFC has always been very helpful. Looking to plan our family vacation for spring/summer. We did a fly in this past summer to Cochrane and it was great. Would consider a Fly In again but would like a change in scenery. Will drive 5-10 hrs from Niagara. Don't need fancy lodge or American plan, but a decent clean cottage/cabin to sleep 4. Wife, son 14 , daughter 7 Would prefer to have 2 boat / motor rentals included Walleye, pike, smallmouth ideal, brookies a nice bonus if possible Ideal budget would be 1500-$2000 for 4 days or a week, all in Interested in Temagami, Lady Evelyn, Martin River, Biscotasing, Gowganda, No Kawarthas, Haliburton Muskoka Nippissing Restoule etc.. , nice places but want different *looked at Lost Lake, not going to suit at this time Look forward to your suggestions!
  6. Where do you live? St Catharines area has some of the best action every year from mid April to late May. Spoonpullers is great so is Lake Ontario United Grimsby Tackle periodically has free seminars in store & via Zoom and a You Tube channel. Joining a local club is a great idea too for learning and networking ( St Catharines Game and Fish Association, Strait Line Anglers, Halton Region Salmon And Trout Association, Port Credit Salmon and Trout Association, Metro East Anglers etc)
  7. Yes whatever you see online or in stores is old stock.. too bad it was good line.
  8. Thanks all. Learned lots from OFC & have made many close friends over the last 18+ years here. Don't post much anymore but still check in regularly. I'll try to share whatever trip /destination we choose next!
  9. Hey all, another long time member coming outta the woodwork. Home from a week away, "off the grid & un plugged" withe family at a remote Fly in outpost cabin 50 miles north of Cochrane Everything came together as we lucked out on the timing & availability of this spot. Air Cochrane Services came highly recommended and we share the sentiment. Cabin was very clean & well equipped with basic/essential needs as well as 3 aluminum boats & well running 6hp outboards. Our lake was approximately 2x1 mile. Not alot of crazy structure & easy to navigate. Walleye were all over and pretty easy to pattern. The dusk bite in the evenings was very good. Lots in the 14-18 inch with a few each day over 20. Andrea landed the biggest at around 5 lbs & lost one much bigger. Had a couple pretty windy days that limited our time targeting pike. We did get a few during the week up to 25". Had a couple jigs bitten off too that we didn't see. For the the Eyes, jig heads in white, pink, white/pink, orange & chartreuse were best with a dew worm. We tried different twister tail grubs, fuzzee grubs & bucktaiks too. Never really got into floating jigs, harnesses or spinners much. Wasn't necessary. Only a couple jigs lost to snags. I've read many reports over the years on these kind of trips & am thankful for all the advice given. I highly recommend the Fly in experience. Despite the great fishing southern Ont & the great lakes has, I've got the urge to explore North a bit more over the next little while.. we'll see where we go next!
  10. Any update on the Highway 69 ? Heading up Sunday
  11. Have fun! I'll be "nearby " at Bounce Lake next Mon-Fri
  12. Might get some browns in shallow if you find green stained water. It's transition time for the kings now, you might get some.. lots of lake trout in 70-110fow Good luck
  13. Won't work on this trip.. another time Thanks for the suggestion
  14. So fingers crossed our family fly in trip out of Cochrane happens in mid August. Starting to plan our drive.. planning to take our time coming from Niagara. Having never spent any time seeing the Georgian Bay area before, we are planning to spend a day going up the 400 to Sudbury before staying the night & doing Sudbury to cochrane the next day. Just wondering if there's any scenic/worthwhile spots along the way worth stopping & checking out. Also any spots where me and my son can stop and toss a line from shore for a few minuteshere & there? Any & all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Feel free to PM me if you prefer.
  15. I like pork pies suggestion Also good luck finding a new Helix bigger than 7 inches
