  1. Ive been seriously thinking about the Sault ste Marie idea 😀. I think that's the first time and place I ever casted a line when I was little boy.
  2. This year has been different, but great in many ways. Fishing was better than previous years, and was able to catch some PBs this year and a few firsts.😊 Mainly did well at port Maitland Pier after many years of getting skunked there. Caught several large pike (7 &9 pounders) and half dozen bowfin. Also got a nice 6lb catfish. Surprisingly, only 2 sheepshead at Maitland even though the first word that comes out of everyone's mouth when they hear Maitland is Sheepshead! 😁 All in all, probably netted close to 50 lbs worth of fish at the pier this year. I'm planning to try it again early morning in the next few days when the water is calm. Hoping for similar luck, but with the colder weather, should I expect the same results, or better or worst?
  3. Get an electric site and bring a heater and inflatable mattress. Sleeping bags as well. Camped at Silent lake two weeks ago with temps going down to Minus 5 at night, but was tolerable with the above stuff. Should be nice and scenic now. Honestly, Would go for two nights at Balsam. Went for the first time this year and was amazing for fishing.
  4. I have decide this year to drive away from the city and try fishing smaller lake. Went to Balsam last week and did good for perch and a nice smallie from the inflatable boat. Planning to try Silent lake this week just for the day. Anyone have a depth map they can share a screenshot of for Silent lake? Want to try for some lake trout before it closes end of this month. Will take some minnows, but will keep some tube jigs and jig heads. Anything else I can try? I cant troll from the inflatable so going to find the drop off and mainly jig or send down some live minnows. I understand with the temps dropping, lake trout can be at any depth, but if you guys have any suggestions on which depth to try, I would appreciate it. thanks
  5. Yes its open lakeside, but they will still get you by not allowing parking in the parking lot at night. I got a $50 parking ticket a few nights ago and I'm sure everyone there that night got tickets too. As much as we try to follow distancing by going outside peak times, they will nail you somehow. Was an expensive fishing trip with no catch 🙄.
  6. I love vertical jigging. Just let the line to the bottom and wait for the bump on the rod tip. I use the same technique from the pier for perch, bass, sheepshead etc
  7. can I take a 12 foot inflatable with paddles and fish on cooks bay on calm day in the shallower areas, or is it not recommended? would find a good spot and anchor there. I have used my inflatable in algonquin on some med sized lakes like canisbay as well as oastler lake near parry sound, and eagle lake at miksew and it was fine. caught some decent fish off of it too.
  8. Raycaster, looking forward to your report from the provincial park side. Heading up there in september hopefully.
  9. I agree you dont have to have the most advanced equipment. My friend and I fish from a seadoo speedster boat with manual downriggers. Its a pretty rustic setup but works. first time we ever went out, we tried the 50/50 method. We were clueless on what were doing, but hooked into 2 8 lb rainbows that morning. Since then, we have gotten some better equipment, but from our experience, keeping it simple works best. 2 weeks ago, hooked into a 18 lb salmon which was running on manual downrigger with a 4 lb weight. didnt have a line counter, but estimated it was running at 30 feet. Raycaster, where do you launch from? I don't own a boat, but have some experience going out with friends on their boats. I am very observant and have learnt over the last two years of fishing Lake ontario on generally what works. If you wish, I can join you and share whatever little I have learnt. Last 2 trips out, we caught 3 of 6 on one trip and 6 of 8 on another. I also have some proven flies and spoons that one of the my more serious fisherman friend gave me that we can use. Let me know.
  10. I have been hearing opp and local police are pulling people over and asking their intentions of being out. Anything non essential and there is risk of being fined. Not sure how true this is, but what does this mean for shore fishing?
  11. Did you get rid of the big yellow boat? Was a nice one!
  12. Anyone have any info on where to park there? Is it ok to park all along 2nd line. According to google street view, there are no no parking signs along the north side of 2nd line and none that I can see on Dempsey rd either. Im asking because we are approximately a group 12 cars and dont mind walking a bit as long as parking is allowed along those streets. Thanks
  13. Thanks for the tips. Yes will on getting rid of those sharp edges 👍
  14. Decided to take a group of first timers out for ice fishing along with educating the on the rules and importance of conservation. Didnt expect them to go out and buy equipment so here is my humble attempt at making tip ups with whatever I could find around the house. Stuff used: Wood from old crate stool Paint mix sticks Wire hanger Leftover fishing line Rubber bands The only thing I bought for 6 bucks was the wire steel strapping. Going to test it out this thursday for perch. Should work fine, I hope.
