  1. I think the bear was startled by his sudden draw of the bow so knocking him over was a display of dominance, I think if he had of fired a bad shot and only hurt the bear he may have gotten more aggressive. Hard to say what the bear was thinking, I've had a few bad experiences with bears but nothing like that !

    Best Pike Fishing

    Pasha lake had a spike camp on the jackfish river on the north shore not sure if they still operate it. Another drive to worth looking at is st Joesph, old post lodge is on the east side of the lake and there's a camp on pashkogan as well. St Joe is a great fishery with a lot less traffic then lac seul and its far better. Don't think you will have a hard time finding some big pike there.

    Best Pike Fishing

    GIANT PIKE | Onaman Resort Lake Nipigon, that's the show. I couldn't copy a link but If you Google the new fly fisher then hit episodes it comes up as the first one from last year's season

    Best Pike Fishing

    It should be on you tube Lou, it was a great show! Sight fishing for monster pike in back bays on the east side. I believe they camped on a island on the main lake but launched on the Onaman river. It's a long haul but I've heard the jackfish river where it dumps in the nipigon is as good as anywhere for walleye.

    Best Pike Fishing

    You should also consider lake Nipigon I'm sure bunk will have some great insight for you. From what I've heard it could be the best drive to lake in Canada. Check out the new fly Fisher episode with bunk, the pike were massive plus world class trout fishing

    NF - Sump pump nightmare

    You shouldn't be burning out pumps that quick, if I were you I would be checking the outlet pipe. Does your pump come on quickly after a rain ? Does it run steady during a rain or in the wet months? Is your basement lower then your neighbours ? Are you in sand or clay? Maybe your in the water table? Your pump should keep up regardless unless your outlet is bad and your just recycling water or There is to much of a load on your outlet pipe with added trough water on the same pipe. It's not attractive but it works, have your sump outlet above grade then drain it straight down to the storm sewer pipe, if there's any resistance the pit water will still boil out from the top if the load is to great down lower. Sounds like a storm sewer pipe issue to me.

    Guess it boils down to consumer power, I choose to shop local but I could do better, I refuse to use self checkouts and fast food kiosks because I think entry level jobs and jobs that subsidizes crappy pensions are important.... Toyota is Canada's largest producer for auto so I'm thinking tundra next time.

    After the 08 crash and GM restructured after bankruptcy they outsourced tons of work to countries like India and China to bring down the cost or increase the margins. At that time the average GM vehicle was costing 8-14k to produce, I'm sure it's increased since then but I would bet it hasn't inflated at the same rate as there sticker prices. So it begs the question, where is the profit going? Certainly not back into the communities that build and support these manufacturers.

    Had a chance to talk with a well seasoned economist a few years back and I asked him what his fears were going forward in Ontario concerning the direction of the economy and he said Ontario has never had cheap taxes or a cheap work force but what we did have was cheap electricity and he feared the escalating power costs would kill existing manufacturing and potential new investments

    Lower Twin Lakes Lodge Nakina

    You should do good, lower and upper twin are hit hard but are very prolific fisheries. Since the lower limits and slot size were introduced the lakes came back. Wababimiga is relatively untapped mostly because of poor access and a lack of walleye but the pike fishing is great. Check out fish on line or ganrac for stocking info on lakes like Robertson, you can kinda gauge the sizes by the years stocked 3-4 years being prime. 16-20" trout in the rivers around there are not that common but I would think 16 would be easy on some of those stocked lakes.
  11. Sweet fish Chris, working in New development I've seen the struggle for great grass quick first hand and unfortunately the best results are sod laid in mid to late fall. Cooler wet conditions help it take root then the dormancy of winter makes for a great lawn. Spring is ok too but it's been so dry and its probably a bit late for seed or sod with good results

    Last Minute fly-in Deal

    Short notice but a smoking good deal! This is one of the top lakes in Ontario imo. It fishes great all season but this week would be prime time for numbers.

    HVAC question

    Both are good quality units, goodmans are built in Texas and are quickly gaining a great reputation for quality and value. Not sure why the Goodman combo isn't subject to the rebate, if it's the me efficiency it should be rebated as well

    Locating Brook Trout in Lowland Areas

    I would hire a guide for a day for a river like the Rupert, the river has changed drastically since the dam went in. I know some stretches that we're great are now mediocre, the tributaries are still great and I've heard sea trout can still be had at the mouth.

    Real Estate in south western On.

    I live close to Chatham and have worked in the new divisions over the last 20 years. Over the years manufacturing suffered and for a good stretch of time building on spec didn't pay because the market wasn't strong enough for a return on investment. Today a new bungalow 1300sqft is 300-330k and rising, much like other parts of the province we are now seeing folk bidding up 10-20% over asking and this attributed to the influx of people moving in from the GTA. If I were you I would have a look at port lambton and sombra as well, there are some great affordable little places close to the water plus you have split the distance between Chatham and Sarnia with the bonus of the ferry to Michigan.
