    Some people forget that it's a PRIVILEGE to be allowed to live in another country not a/your RIGHT. I think that this is something that has been forgotten.

    With Rememberance Day Upon Us

    My grandfather volunteered at 21 or 22 and was a tail gunner in the Lancaster bomber, alouette squadron. He did survive the war, but he passed away when I was about 13 and didn't fully understand the gravity of what he did. My dad has told me a bits and pieces of a few stories that my grandpa shared with him about being on bombing runs and in air to air combat with German fighters and being shot at and shooting them down. We still have his RCAF jacket, his war medals and flight log book among other things. I am very proud of him for doing what he did.
  3. I just bought a striker hard water suit last week. Was a bit on the expensive side but worth the cost imo. Really warm suit. Found myself taking off under layers because I was too warm. Also has towels that button ontop of the thigh which I thought was cool and are very handy. Also thought I would need a large but ended up getting a medium. It’s was a toss up between the hard water suit and the predator suit for me. Predator suit was a little cheaper and a little lighter overall in terms of weight. But I chose the headwaters suit. But both would be a good buy imo.

    Hours On Outboards

    Both motors are 4 stroke. The boat that has the 115hp is 17ft and rated for 125 max hp. The other with the 90hp was 16.5ft and I’m not sure about the max hp as it was already sold before I had a chance to look. I also was going to take it to a Honda marine mechanic in that area to have the appropriate test run.

    Yes, I like that idea. Yes I've taken a look at a couple and the pictures were deceiving. The Interior carpets weren't in great shape and neither were the interior compartments. Yes I've been told to check everything with a fine tooth comb and make sure everything is in working order.

    I agree i wouldn't want some random trying to do these things however I'd think if you wanted to sell it then that's something that you would do? Also why would you leave it there? Wouldn't you want to see what comes of the inspection? Not taking it to a mechanic for me would be a deal breaker. That would say to me that there may be potential issues with the motor. I'm not that well versed in outboard mechanics and would prefer someone who is trained have a look, before I spend a bunch of my money on what could be someone else's problem. I agree that you can't take it to a mechanic for every potential buyer however you should be able to weed those people out and try to deal with only serious buyers. Also if you do end up taking it to a mechanic, would it not be possible to get the things that most people would want checked it writing?

    Read this and it reminded me of a girl a used to know I will have to look into this, thanks. Thanks Ironmaker. Yes I wouldn't buy a boat without taking it to a mechanic or a water test.

    I'm assuming I would have to take it to a mechanic in order to check those?

    Hey guys looking for some advice. Currently looking at possibly purchasing a new boat one with 115 Honda 4stroke and other Yamaha. Both boats are around 13-15 years old. Both are in visibly good condition but how many hours would be considered to many on a boat of that age?

    Tips for buying a used boat

    Some good pointers in the video. Thought if someones in the market they could take something from the video.

    Eyes In The Night

    I don''t have any glow in the dark baits but I did try rippin raps of various sizes as well as cranks. We just couldn't get them to go. You would think? we used jig and minnow and dropshotted them but still nothing...

    Eyes In The Night

    Hey guys, Was at PAB for a few days last week with a few others for my first real outing this season. Weather was good first day was over 30 degrees and the the remaining days I don't think broke 20 with cold nights. We caught some good fish, one being a 4LB 14Oz smallie and another was 3LB 13Oz. Caught a few decent pike trolling for musky biggest being just shy of 37inches and a few others around the 30" mark and many other small guys. However they were no musky caught this trip sadly put just under 30hrs trolling in over 4 days and didn't even get a sniff. But that's part of it. So my question is, at night we took a break from trolling to try to find some eyes. We found them (or what I presumed to be walleye on the graph) only at night when the sun was down, they would school up and feed on huge schools of small bait fish. We could see the minnows swimming around next to the boat with the head lamps. Trying the catch them was impossible. Tried jigging, drop shots, cranks, harnesses, holding the jigs with minnows in the feeding area, rip baits. But still couldn't catch any. Is it as possible that they are just gorging on the other bait so theres no interest in what we were using or were we not doing the right things? Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
