Almost a Guide

Almost a Guide (5/10)



  1. I live just up the lake from Scotsman Point. The last few weeks fishing has been good. Can't say what it will be like come Oct. Tri-Lakes (Buckhorn, Chemong and Pigeon) are all connected and can be traversed without going through a lock. Lots of water to cover and you can boat to Buckhorn, Bridgenorth or Bobcaygeon. Like other Trent Severn lakes, there are many hazards just under the water when not in the marked channel. Make sure you have Navionics mapping (either on your phone via their App or a device in the boat) and make sure to trim up and go slow when not in the channel to play it safe. Hopefully Hank Jr can direct you to the type of structure to target (there is lots between the 3 lakes).
  2. I'm on Upper Buckhorn as well. I've never found a reason to update the maps for the Kawartha's. I have the Navionics on my phone and do the annual subscription so that it updates (it's pretty cheap compared to the Nav chips in our fish finders).
  3. Some ice skating happened local to me on Buckhorn Lake this past Sat (a close to shore location where there is no current) and some were out on the south end of Chemong fishing as well (a closed end of the lake, always has early ice and no current). So the odd spot ... but there certainly is very few. Hoping for more sub zero after Christmas to hopefully get out by Jan 1.
  4. I have the Strker Hardwarer suit. I did a lot of research before buying and it along with the Clam looked really good. I went with Striker because I found it to be more stylish (I can where the jacket as a normal winter jacket and not just for ice fishing). You really need both the bib and jacket to have the proper safety of floating. The combo of bib and jacket are expensive. But it's worth it.
  5. I fear he'll just pay a fine and then next time find a way to do it (or something similar) where he can't be identified.
  6. This showed up in my inbox ....
  7. I had heard through the grape-vine that this guy is a resident of Rice Lake and he was acting out in protest of all the 'new Canadians' on the water over fishing areas. I'm not agreeing with his actions at all (he made a bad choice) .... just passing along what I heard.
  8. The Facebook page for this event has announced a reschedule to May 31, 2020. Too bad, this was looking to be a very big event for the area. Hopefully it will happen on May 31st and the same numbers turn out. Press Release March 13th 2020 – Peterborough ON. Due to unfortunate circumstances of the COVID-19 Virus we are sad to inform you that the Peterborough Tackle Swap and Fishing Show that was scheduled to take place at the Memorial Centre on March 15th will be postponed until May 31st 2020. Due to the world pandemic of the COVID-19 Virus we have no choice but to take the advice of health officials and experts and postpone the event. This was not an easy decision but the safety of our vendors and attendees and the great city of Peterborough is our top priority. We were able to work with the Memorial Centre and secure a new date of May 31st and we will release more details shortly regarding that date. To all our vendors and supporters, attendees and anglers everywhere we appreciate your support and by following suit with other organizations across the country we feel this is the responsible decision to make. All concerns can be address to show promoter. May 31st Save the date! Kyle Carruthers Peterborough Tackle Swap and Fishing Show 905-809-9682 [email protected]
  9. A fishing buddy of mine has one. I've been in his and it's a rough ride. But that thing will go anywhere and the fact that it floats is great peace-of-mind. Here's a pic of his.
  10. I have the Hardwater bib and jacket and they are great! You'll be very happy with them. I had first purchased Large size and they were too big on me. Had to step down to Medium, which fit like a glove as well.
  11. I spent a couple hours walking the floor Monday and sat in on a couple of sessions. I enjoyed my time and thought it was a good trip.
  12. I got mine at BPS in North York. But that was a few years back.
  13. Thanks for the details. I emailed the event asking since my tickets were purchased online and are standard admittance. I've had a reply, but I'm afraid it failed to answer my simple question of how do I change my ticket to include the Monday 9am closed door. The person that replied implied that I just have to show up since there is no additional cost. But they were quite vague and gave me no details. I may have to simply call and talk to someone. Thanks!
