  1. Probably just an honest mistake. My old man did the same thing to our utility trailer 2 years ago ... but thankfully the chains were attached which saved us a lot of grief.
  2. https://www.thepeterboroughexaminer.com/news-story/9573490-boat-gets-loose-and-strikes-a-transport-truck-in-peterborough/
  3. Gave a thumbs up. Watch your length though. Even though you may get a perk from YouTube by going over the 30min length ... that video dragged and found myself jumping forward several times.
  4. There are most certainly muskie in the Tri Lakes. I have seen guys trolling fast for muskie in the ares of Long Point Shoal and Three Sisters Shoals. These spots can be found by simply looking at Google Maps.
  5. Yup. So hard to find I never hear of anyone targeting them in the summer. They certainly get caught by surprise. I brought one into the boat that wasn't too bad 3 weeks ago on Chemong on a dropshot with a small artificial minnow in approx 8ft weed.
  6. Great tips smithy97. Thanks! 🖖
  7. Actually it wasn't meant as a slam towards shootings. I guess I omitted the part about what my reference was to. My reference was to the humor in the Michael Moore documentary 'Bowling for Columbine' where he showed that in some areas when you go to the bank and take out a loan you get a free rifle. It was shocking to watch this in the documentary. My comment was meant to be in reference to that. Here's the snippet ->
  8. Everyone that's on a forum like this knows the muskie technique. The problem are the cottage rentals that come up for a few days or a week or two. They go jigging for fish with the kids and end up hooking a muskie and don't know the do's and don'ts. 1) This happened to an acquaintance of mine just 2 weeks ago. He was at a rental for the week on Lower Buckhorn and sure enough out fishing with his two young kids he hooked a muskie. He said he got it to the boat but didn't know what to do. He said there was a seasoned angler close by that came over to his rental boat and helped. In this case I expect it ended OK for the muskie. He said he learned about holding it for recovery/rest time, etc. 2) I know a cottage resort owner and once I witnessed (it was after the fact) the weekly rentals catching a muskie and bringing it back to show everyone, handling it wrong, out of the water too long for pics, etc. The resort owner showed me the dead muskie from their shoreline (it floated back not long after it was released) and it was huge. Very sad. He told me it happens from time to time. The 'cidiots' (some call them) are clueless to how delicate the monster of the lake is once it has been caught and handled. I think more education for the short stay vacationers would help.
  9. If you go a little further down in the States you get a free rifle with your 30 bucks of gas. LOL
  10. Agreed, but .... without a crystal ball, I don't know how anyone could be present to catch someone in the middle of stealing a boat, motor, ATV or into a cottage. Most of those acts can be done in less than 5 min.
  11. Good to see them on the water. https://www.kawartha411.ca/2019/07/10/two-boat-operators-charged-on-area-waterways/
  12. That guy yelling and hitting the cruiser in his tinny is pretty funny. The video shared of the large cruiser running over the 3 people fishing was terrifying.
  13. Luck ... yes, most certainly. Impressive sizes ... no. The tournaments I've been in and those that i've monitored the results ... guys have been saying it's been a tough bite and the numbers coming in are certainly smaller than normal for this time of year. But the general consensus has been 'hit/miss' everywhere. With the very late spring, normal patterns are not the case this year.
  14. If live bait is allowed ... large minnows. Big ones. Large bass will smash them if you are in the spot.
