  1. I missed that Weaponizing your boat section in the boaters exam test we all had to take I guess
  2. I hate when the fish interrupt my sandwich 😃
  3. You may wish to assess your boating requirements Hey it's 2020---why not? https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/humpback-whale-st-lawrence-1.5591877
  4. Maybe talk nice to Limeyangler---maybe he could do some Recon for ya
  5. Here's one I seen the other day you may need to spend the other 1500 to get it in NW Ontario tho https://www.ckdr.net/classifieds/1986-18ft-sylvan/
  6. This happened to me last year one of those black rims for your winter snow tires--- was only a couple years old it rusted in the centre of the rim--just enough for a slow leak pretty sure they don't use the best steel on those good luck
  7. Can't confirm...but I read the processed "meat" is full of salt---that other thing they warned us about
  8. If God did not want us to eat animals......He would'nt have made them out of meat ? Hey Bri
  9. Insert an in-line swivel 18 inches up from your bait
  10. Tubes then grubs----smoke and green are good Jerkbaits Wacky senkos always work Big spinnerbaits are another option
  11. Thanks Liverelease I thought maybe things have changed here at OFC with the rule changes---but your one sided political view has proven that hyper partisan is alive and well I will check in again in 6 months or so and see if grown ups are here Good Luck Art......hate and Bull is a hard fight.......take care brother---see ya.
  12. Yes social media is here to stay But it does not remove the fact that If I call someone a foul name for breaking the rules on a public forum---I better make sure I have never broken any rules ----hence I would be a hypocrite And if I thought muskies were the endangered holy grail of fish----I would'nt be fishing them in 80 degree plus waters or using barbed baits---lest they gill hook an undersized musky and you have to let it go floatin belly up--gotta stay legal right? After all---this is a musky we're talkin bout
  13. Everyone I have read in these threads has agreed this action was wrong and should be dealt with by the "Proper" authorities It just gets a little wide when this guy gets sent thru the wringer of public opinion--to the point it has So one can only assume those that have partook in the name calling etc (aka public lynching) is above reproach and has never done anything wrong---to the point they could be videoed at any point day or night---and their actions can withstand the jury of public scrutiny
  14. Great news on your health and what a photo-journey Ya did it up right People miss so much when flying ---and I know it's mostly about time But the most important thing you will always be able to reflect upon-----You took that time PS---I liked the prairies---especially at night-----Lights shine like Islands in seas of wheat and canola fields
  15. Yes Ironmaker---you can google "Leech Lake Rampage" and also see a dock full of huge muskies hangin in the sun---from the 50's I believe I also agree with your view on how relative killing one fish is compared to the countless atrocities happening daily in this world----somewhat why I asked a few questions and gave another angle----cuz it was apparently 4-5 pages of name calling and curious comments which Art has to remind people can be used them in a court of law The web is not the local pub or schoolyard---and recent laws are regulating and scrutinizing it's usage more closely---check out the new and improved cyber bullying legislation---stemmed from tragic teenage suicides And some of the tirades on certain groups based on Race/Religion or sexual orientation may fringe on Hate publications---another offence---do you want the court to decide that you were serious or not? If a Sask resident can be fined by The Supreme court of Canada for distributing ant-gay flyers as hate literature----is it worth it? And at the end of the day I believe if the crap ever hits the fan---it will put our host TJ in a very awkward position---not the way to treat a friend ....no? There are so very many things we can get angry with.....but anger does'nt solve the problem---there are channels to use if persistent and important enough to you if it's not worth acting upon---is it worth driving your Blood pressure up over then? In the orig Post---yep---guy broke the law----take whatever action needed to stop it from happening again----but the rest evolves into a mob mentality.
  16. It's not really hate...more pity and sympathy...like you felt for that kid in school who was always picked last for the team...it's ok l'il Johnny--it's not if you win or lose---as long as your havin fun
  17. Just for clarification-----I did say I don't think what he did was right-- But if I go around judging the world---it somewhat leaves me open to be judged---and again---I'm just trying to get by I've got family members that shoot wolves on sight----should I go tell them how wrong they are----or live and let live and try and get to the finish line with a modicum of peace We've all seen entire watersheds polluted and ruined-- and ALL fish floatin---no matter what the type------but it's business and must be ok--cuz somebody's making a living Again killing for no reason is wrong---in my opinion---and this is what this is all about--right? How does a Muskie climb the evolutionary scale above many others-----treated with the same fate Again---more questions than answers
  18. I guess I was not elected judge---just a holder of an opinion---we have politicians that break laws---and there's always someone justifying the actions---how is breaking one law unacceptable and breaking another ok Junkie goes to jail for smokin crack in Toronto---Rob Ford goes on Kimmel It's illegal to do many things--in nature that continues to be done---but they still are being done
  19. No------I've shot more than I can count with a rifle And if your badly hooked fish is out of season/slot---your watching it sink
  20. I do not fish Muskie...caught a couple incidentals in my lifetime...but this has been an interesting read and cross section of views I believe this has more to do with one's perspective than a higher moral ground Mike (I believe) mentioned---where's the outrage on speared carp or the likes---still a fish---I think he's right in his thinking Musky fisherman are outraged at this action----because they have a practical use of this fish for their enjoyment----other fish----less outrage Would the same outraged anglers--have difficulty blasting a flock of cormorants cuz they eat fish??---somewhat the same logic...no? I know hunters who shoot wolves on sight cuz they eat deer/moose----till like Yellowstone Park---wolves need to be re-introduced cuz they served a part in nature's balance The lines in nature are not so defined as our black and white thinking....I'm bad cuz I kill a musky---I'm good cuz I kill a cormorrant I don't think what this guy did was right....but I feel uncomfortable judging him---cuz like everyone here----I drive sharpened steel into fish all the time---we've all had deep hooked fish croak---are they less dead than buddy's musky? It's how you rationalize it----some percentage of the population think deer are pretty----And I've pulled the hammer and never even blinked------perspective Anyway---I have more questions than answers on this subject------because like everything else in life---there's opposing groups who believe their way is the only right way I try to just get by.
