    Fall Muskie report

    You have great water in your backyard... but it'd be hard to beat the scenery and excitement of traveling with friends to a northern muskie lodge. Solid reward bud!

    Lund problems 😳

    On that page too... Just as I am Lowrance and as I am... etc. They become "problem" pages, they're negative most of them. Just like our evening news... In Lunds case, I wonder how many Lund owners are happy with their boats but just don't go online on any regular basis to confess their love? lmao! Had an issue with my new Lund already, but my marina and Lund took care of it entirely. I'm with Wayne, "The Bomber" sold after 8 years of heavy use and trailering, with not a leak. But like every other boat, you treat it like crap and don't give it regular winks and TLC, they will get old on you that much quicker. Although never an issue with an old transom... the new boat has the new transom. Wonder if other companies will follow suit?

    Early Fall Muskies

    LOL!!! When your net man is gonna have troubles is when the net is needed. Good stuff! Sunday was a tough one here, lost one, caught a bunch of pike but snapped off an $80 bait and $10 leader. You did better. lol. Christine and I were chatting about you in the boat for a minute.

    Shimano Reel Service worth it?

    Sent a couple off last spring that were bad apples. Gotta admit, they cleaned 'em up purdy good and got 'em working better than before.

    More fishing fines laid!

    Only thing that stands out as extraordinary here is that TheKawarthaAngler needs to change his name to just KawarthaAngler so that his profile can fit that dropped "r" into place with the rest of his name. Just a bit of OCD here for ya. lol

    How old is OFC/OFC?

    Started on FishOntario in 2002, added Fish-Hawk in 2003 as it was basically home turf waters that most there were posting about, and later started lurking here in 04 I think, came on about 05/06 and joined NAA, RB's and YRF about then too. All have basically died, with F-H likely to be the next. Soooooooooo many people have come and gone but some still really stand out for each of us when you see their names. It would be great to hear how old members are doing, I always like reports, and guys like say Cookslav's spring Algonquin trips, Tony or Aaron's summer salmon days, Ramble's backwoods tours, etc, etc. are the types of personal fishing reports and stories which I always felt fueled me to read more. Steve posted the names Pameladellaire and Mepps as well. Pam years back sent me a print of one of her paintings. She had painted it from a picture I had taken of a cabin on Hancock Creek outside of Moosonee. Couple months ago I was looking at it here at home and happily remembering that kind gesture and the fact she used to post her paintings here. Well, she fell off the face of the earth, like many people actually do from these sites, except that some of us for whatever reason never forget them. And Joey!!! How could any of us forget her, she was beautiful with everyone here and off site as well. Doesn't matter how old this place is, the next person or post that could have some impact on your life could happen any time.

    A Jiggy Jiggy Report!!!

    Those stars had me going a minute. Can't believe how much your daughter looks like Monique, and how she and your boy have grown. It's incredible that you're all together, enjoying it together. Must make you parents proud. It's a piece of heaven, your heaven, and so it's gotta be one helluva a great jiggy jiggy place to visit.

    OK... I won't send this reply to your boss. Appreciate you reading the story but please put your job first in the future. lol You should take the trip in your dad's honor is what you should do. Back to your roots. It's the perfect place to think on that. There's only a handful of friends I could consider doing this kind of trip with. The older we all get, the more set in our ways we tend to be so if you have friends that you are struggling with on short trips now, chances are you will continue to unless you begin talking about it soon. My temperament and drive isn't for everyone, and I know this. So with some friends I am quick and honest to explain that I don't think we would work together well for this or that type of thing. If they are really your friends, they may or may not like it but, they will ultimately understand and accept that. Friends I think the world of don't necessarily have the right stuff for certain trips. And that's not usually a fault of theirs or mine, but more or less just our differences and, my beliefs of how we will manage together on any given trip. Mike is one guy who puts on his big boy pants, gets his hands dirty, never stops thinking, and in the face of troubled moments usually takes a time out to collect himself. I'm much the same except I tend to explode for a brief moment when troubled, then it's out and I can chill. It's never an easy thing though, I have some friends now who likely be ticked off with me for life because I took this trip without them. To that I say, book yourself the trip and go then. As far as fly fishing goes, I truly was just in awe of it again, maybe more so than ever before. IMO it's just not productive enough for certain fishing I like, ie; muskie, lakers, walleye, sturgeon, and others. That said, trips for specks and pike, maybe more gar at home too, I hope to step up the fly game a little bit more. It is, as you know, a very rewarding to hook up. http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/woods-expedition-comfort-max-self-inflating-mattress-4-in-0762919p.html#srp This thing was a bit bulky but AMAZING to sleep on. Bought it and a single tent that the mattress just fits inside. The whole thing can be set up on the casting deck of my boat. Get just as good a night sleep on it as I do the bed at home. Maybe better with all that fresh O2 passing the nares. You'll like it I think! You like the northern O trip reports.

    Who knew Terry was an Instagram star!

    Terry has always been a star. Remembering at Wayne's cottage sitting talking and one up'ing each other. Me: "Ahhhh in my teens for something to do we'd get a case of beer and hit the backroads." Wayne: "Just a case?!?! I'd keep a keg in the trunk." Terry: "Well my car had a keg too, and I built a tap right into the dash."
  13. Great to enjoy with a morning coffee Andrew. Surely gets me missing the days on the rivers and lakes north, walleye are always a fun social fish, especially in numbers like 100 or even just 99 a day. The right group of people though, and it's trips like this one that keep ya going back for more.

    A Sutton River & Trout Fishing Specktacle.

    The "Freezer" is now called the "Breakfast" pool maybe? Basically a 2 second walk from Alberts? A fly angler was on it a couple days but when he and Albert slipped down river one afternoon, we got in there and pounded fish in that tailout. Didn't swing the flies much there as that's all the other guy had been doing, but he sure left alot of fish lure hungry. Above the Aquatuk where those skinny runs were we moved through at a quick pace and didn't bother. Finally drift fished in a good mile or two before stopping at Eerie Feelings above the Aquatuk. Put a quick and decent hurt on some fish there. It's interesting to note how others like to fish the river, there's certainly no shortage of trout for all styles. And thanks Sterling. lol. Mike had me laughing with that log too. Nut! GOD we could have used some horny bush broads out there though. What happens on the Sutton... well, it doesn't stay on the Sutton and it sure would have added a little extra to the story.

    Uncut Angling does it again

    Not 100 here... but probably 24 in the big boy box and another 50 in odds and ends muskie/pike/big laker crossovers. And you're totally right, been using about 7 or 8 consistently this season and don't change much because once you have those confidence lures, it's hard to switch out.
